hello, does it work when you manually navigate to google.co.uk, long-press the search field & add a custom search provider?

otherwise you could visit http://mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=Google+UK+SSL&category=12 on your mobile phone, tap on Google UK SSL and confirm that you want to add the search engine. you can disable/remove search providers in the settings menu > more > addons.

Hello thanks for getting back to me, I've done both of those and they do add Google UK to the list which is great, but neither seem to have suggested searches like the default Google add on does, it only comes up with exactly what I type in, there a way to turn this on?

Also can you change the order of search engines so I can move it to the top as new ones seem to go right to the bottom.

Thank you again.
