Hello. My name is Pjotr.

 

I use Firefox version 35 by now; I use Facebook, and I have plenty of Chinese friends there. So, I'm tired of Bing-translating the messages all the time.

...can you show me (step-by-step please, with links) how to implement a Chinese Trad. & Simplified language packs there? ...so I could see the actual Chinese hieroglyphs?
Where to attach it, to the browser or to my OS?

I need these 4 languages:
Chinese Traditional.
Chinese Simplified.
Korean.
Japanese.

.....please, incl. a step-by-step instructions on where to go and what to install. incl. the links, if applicable.

I would like "quietman7" to guide me here personally.

 

Thanks! :D

P.S. Remember Firefox version 29? ...the design - all gray, clear, only thin spades and blocks. ...it was brilliant! I haven't used my computer for 6 months, and only got to my Firefox at version 34, downloading it afterwards. Do you know the version at which they have changed to this "mozzy", thick spade design (which I dislike)? ...which was the latest gray?

my OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional x86, with SP3 (Russian)
my web-browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, Mozilla Firefox 35 (with add-block plus and add-block plus anti-popup add-ons).

I use the classic theme restorer addon for Firefox, which you can customize, and it looks much better than the newest design.

You need to install the XP language pack for East Asian languages. You will need your XP install disk.

If you do not have the install disk see this.

Just go into your Firefox browser, and go to Tools > Add-ons, and in the search bar on the top right corner, type in "classic theme" or just "classic" and look for classic theme restorer.

 

Or just go here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/

 

It's super customizable, you will probably spend a little while figuring out what you like and don't like, but I love the add-on.
