German Site Re-Direction (Various)

Posted

I have a Brand New Win 10 Desktop Computer. My old computer had Firefox, I signed in and ran a sync.

Now on the New Computer I sign in and it syncs and transfers all my stuff over. However! alot of sites i browse are going in to German, - .de (like YouTube or Dell).

I have download the latest Firefox (GB/UK English) Version. I have checked all location settings/Time etc & all set to UK. I do not have VPN add in or anything.

MS Edge Browser on the New Computer is Working Fine no German sites.

Please Help.

Thanks you, I think deleting the 'selected' cookies did the job, BTW I did use the location checker sites, It is Showing me my Correct Location.

Anyway all working fine now. Thanks again.
