I finally gave it up. 

The first Google page I open from bookmarks it remains in English but 
just that, the rest of the pages take their own preferences like if they 
were alive, kinda Google-HAL...

(BTW, I cannot completely turn off "auto-completion" nor disabling that 
silly snapshot preview for the web pages...).

Google is now forcing their users to use cookies (sorry Google but I 
always remove all the cookies when I close the browser) and login into 
your account to keep/set our settings (and not all of the setting can eb 
controlled from there), we like it or not and there is nothing we can do 
to change that damn no-sense policies ;-(
