How can I change the google home page from http://www.google.com.pr/webhp?hl=es-419 to http://www.google.com/webhp? I will not use the puerto rico home page.


Good evening. I live in Puerto Rico and recently installed Firefox. The google search page that the browser assigns to me is http://www.google.com.pr/webhp. This page comes up in spanish, which I have no use for, and is for Puerto Rico.

I will not use this google page. In MS Explorer I changed the default google page to http://www.google.com/webhp and this page takes me to google US. How can make this change in Firefox? If I cannot change it I will delete Firefox.
