There are two ways of changing the language. An easy way by simply downloading the complete install of Firefox in your preferred language. If you have a slow internet connection this can take a while, but it doesn't involve changing any settings.
If your menu language mysteriously changed or you only want to add an additional language, there is a slightly more complex way by only downloading the language pack. This is a smaller and thus quicker download but involves make more changes.
The simple wayVisit the International versions page and download Firefox in your preferred language.
After the download is completed simply reinstall Firefox and the language should be updated.
