Some time ago, I found that in a new document the hyphenation was set to 
English for each new textframe. Of course, this caused German 
hyphenation to get wrong there.

I could set each text frame to German, but to no avail. If I remember 
right, eventually I set it in the preferences for the document. That was 
the thing which helped.

Maybe something similar on your side? Try setting preferences, text 
frames and paragraph style to French.

Hope it helps.
