I am from the UK, and unfortunately, something strange randomly occurred, overnight...

Whenever I search Google from within Firefox, which I generally do very often, I get search results from the US.

If I manually type www.google.co.uk into the address bar, then the results I get are correct, and I can see that I've been taken to Google UK. But if I search from either the address bar in Firefox, or if I open a new tab and then use the search box on that page, I get US results again.

I have tried changing my website language within FF settings to English UK, changing my home page to "www.google.co.uk/ncr", deleting cache/cookies/temps, and also doing a refresh of Firefox... none of these have worked.

Any advice here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
