Firefox will not search using google.co.uk after an upgrade from Firefox 10.0.3 to 10.0.4

Posted

I have a PC and a laptop, both running Mandriva Linux 2010.2. The PC runs FF 10.0.3 and the laptop just upgraded to FF 10.0.4. In both cases the home page is google.co.uk. The PC is fine but the laptop will not search using google. I have changed the home page to yahoo.co.uk as a temporary fix and this will search and find. How do I get FF 10.0.4 to work with google?

Thanks, this appears to have worked. I did try this before but got no result, however I didn't close FF and restart it and that maybe why it didn't work first time. All is good now, thanks for your help. This is now closed.
