I downloaded the new Firefox 4.0 release. I noticed there is a google search bar in the top right. I am located in Puerto Rico, a Spanish speaking region. When I perform a search, the results are returned in Spanish instead of English. I don't know Spanish. I would like English. How can I set the preferences so that it always returns search results in English?

I tried editing the google.xml file in searchaddons but it did nothing to change the situation.
