Firefox Search gives Google results with Netherlands as home location

Previously when I did a search in the Firefox search window I got results in the Google site relevant to where I was located. When in Ireland I would get google.ie, in the UK I would get google.co.uk.

Now I am in Ireland but am getting results in google.com, but my location is coming up as Netherlands. The instructions on my screen are in Dutch and I am asked if I only want results from Netherlands. This is not a problem of language, as the results come up on English, but the system thinks I'm in the wrong place.

Hi cor-el

Thanks for getting back.

I had thought of that. My location shown as Ireland, so that it correct. It doesn't make sense that I am getting Netherlands Google.

Thank you for the suggestion. I forwarded my issue but have heard nothing back, so I am still getting the problem.
