My PC's version of Firefox has a button (at top of Page just above the search results) which allows me to select search UK only. Very useful! My wife laptop, running the same version of Firefox (the latest) does not have this. Going to tools and then search does not offer this option. Where do I obtain this option? Kind Regards Dave B

It's also possible to install a new search engine add-on that will send the query directly to the .uk site if the redirect isn't working. There are a few different sources to add on a search engine:
