Please note the browser redirection works in relation to your browser's language and not the location from where you're accessing the site.

Please check this documentation about Browser Language Redirection for more information:

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Thanks for your response.
I'm using Firefox and my browser language is French as you can see in below video.
When I go to my website the default language is English and it should be French as my browser language is French.

Video - hidden link
Also this is my current setting for lang redirect - hidden link

I have already submitted my wp-admin in case you have to check something.
Let me know if I can help in any way.

I have tried to browse your site like the steps you described in the video provided using firefox browser with French as default language.

As far as i can tell, the browser redirection is working fine. Please note though that WPML will do this language redirect only once and then not redirect anymore as stated on our documentation. However, This single-time redirect operation resets every 24 hours which you change in WPML > Languages > Browser language redirect section.

To learn more about it this behavior, please read this section of the documentation:
