I am in Limerick Ireland & use Firefox as my main browser, but when it returns google search results, it converts to Russian. Scrolling down to the bottom of the page, the location is given as UKRAINE. As mentioned I am in Ireland, and my stated preferred language is ENGLISH. I am concerned and more than a little irritated as it is not easy to report problems

For security, I use Bitdefender total security which includes a VPN on an iMAC.

Thank you for your help in advance

Thank you Fred McD

I'm now down as being in UK (even though I'm in Ireland) but at least the language reflects my preferred choice of English.

If it happens again, should I be worried? That is, is it because my IP is being hacked or something?
