Changing automatic Google search location

Posted

Hi

When I type in a Google search in the top right hand search box in Firefox, it automatically uses www.google.com - I need to use google.co.uk. How can I set it to search using co.uk?

Cheers!

Every time Firefox opened

Load that Mycroft page and select the search engine you want. Category 11 is the general search engines, the others are for more specialized searches.
