You need to change /etc/default/locale. The easiest way is to open Language Support and select the Regional Formats tab. You'll probably find English (United Kingdom) preselected, since that's what you have for your own user. To make it default for new users, just click the Apply System-Wide button.

I'd suspect that the firefox language support files are missing. If you open System Settings -> Language Support you will probably be prompted to install missing language support. Just accept that. The command line way to do the same thing: sudo apt-get install $(check-language-support)

As stated in this question on support.mozilla.org: The preferred way would be to download and install the Firefox version with the language you need. But there is also a workaround for using different languages. Check the link for more info.

From the locale output I see that you have set LC_ALL persistently in a config file. Remove that LC_ALL entry, whereever you set it.

If you ever has used a GUI for setting language and/or regional formats, your user specific settings (which override the system wide settings in /etc/default/locale) have been saved in ~/.pam_environement. The best way to prevent surprising behavior is to keep using the GUIs, especially Language Support, for handling languages and locales.

I ended up removing the Ubuntu partition from my computer and using a recovery disk to reset the Windows bootloader. Then I went through the same steps, but this time I used Linux Mint (which is what I was going for originally anyway). Everything works properly now! Thanks for the help.

What you've installed is Ubuntu Kylin, which by default comes with Chinese locale. As with any Ubuntu flavor you can do the following in terminal: sudo apt-get install language-pack-en sudo update-locale LANG=en_US.utf8 check-language-support | xargs sudo apt-get install reboot If that still doesn't help you, you may want to create live usb for original ...
