The firefox search using google engine is not giving me location option anymore, how do I get it back?
I am running Firefox 4. The search bar has google search engine and I used to get location specific search options when I searched using it! That is after I enter a search word and press return, I would get results and on the left of the page I had option to change my location web pages from my country or all over the world. But now it is gone. But when I go to google.com.sg, I am able to get that.

Firefox 4 uses a special build-in home page called about:home that opens the default Google search page Google.com
That international page doesn't have a specific country selection.
So you will have to set the home page to http://google.com.sg/ to get results from Singapore.
I am using another homepage, I do not want google as my homepage. I was asking about the search box on the top right corner (instant search). When I make a search from that box using google engine, it used to take me to a google result page with country and location options on the left side until yesterday. But not anymore. But when I search directly from google.com.sg it does.

Look here for additional Google search engines including google.com.sg:
Thank you very much that has solved the issue. I tried a lot to add another search engine but none worked. Thanks a lot
