How can I revert to having the "Search from Australia" option? Setting Google.com.au as my home page doesn't do it any more.

I am sick of having to go through this every time FF upgrades. If Mozilla doesn't care about anyone outside of the US, just say so and I'll use another browser.

hello tudogz01, you could install a search plugin especially for google australia which will show up in your search bar afterwards: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=google+australia&category=12

Use the Search bar in Firefox and manage search engines
