I live in Ireland and want the search in the toolbar to use Google.ie and not Google.com. I checked other search engines in the addons and .ie is not there, neither is .co.uk. Before the last update the search defaulted to Google.ie but not any more.

Hi, I am using the search window as per usual, but it now defaults to the global version of Google, instead of Google.com.au. When I try to fix this, there is no add-on for Google.com.au. This means that I now need to type in the address manually and go to the site to search, which is annoying. Please fix the add-on situation so that Google.com.au can be used in search window? Thanks and kind regards, JP

Hello,

I am from the UK, and unfortunately, something strange randomly occurred, overnight...

Whenever I search Google from within Firefox, which I generally do very often, I get search results from the US.

If I manually type www.google.co.uk into the address bar, then the results I get are correct, and I can see that I've been taken to Google UK. But if I search from either the address bar in Firefox, or if I open a new tab and then use the search box on that page, I get US results again.

I have tried changing my website language within FF settings to English UK, changing my home page to "www.google.co.uk/ncr", deleting cache/cookies/temps, and also doing a refresh of Firefox... none of these have worked.

Any advice here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'm frustrated and lost - I'm ok when it comes to using any software but trying to fix a computer problem is not my thing. I love Firefox but lately I've been thinking of moving to some other browser (?) then think of that old saying "the grass is always greener on the other side" so would appreciate your help - but please understand I can only speak English not computer language.

I've had a few problems with upgrades in the past but none that are as strange as this one. Have just upgraded Firefox to 41.0.2. I use Google as my search engine so Google come up as my home page when I first start a search, if I then want to open another tab apart from it taking so long like I'm still on dial-up (!!!) whatever I type into the Google bar shoots straight up to the search bar on top of the screen then just sits there with nothing coming back to me.

Then I started looking through Q&A's and felt like I was in a spiders web. I've checked the Windows Firewall and Firefox is allowed - can someone help and step me through an "how to" to fix this problem because other than that I'm lost - also each time I opened a new tab (before this Firefox upgrade) my home page (Google) would always show - now I just get a blank page.

My searches using Google are interrupted and apparently sent to Yahoo... If I try to go back to the previous screen I am immediately sent back to the Yahoo search results. Sometimes screens like 'you are lost' or 'page not found' (but these are not the usual format) come up and I can only get back to the Yahoo search results from there.

Is this a known problem and what is the solution?

I am running Firefox 41.0.1 on Mac OS 10.7.5

Had problems with my husband's computer and wound up having to reset Firefox. Now it has reset and the start page comes up but when I request Google to bring up a page (any page) nothing happens. No action whatever. What could be wrong? I've checked to see that Firefox isn't blocked by the firewall.

Hello,

I have set my starting page (that opens when I open Firefox) to: http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=nl How is it possible (and why?) that the URL from my start page changes? For example, it changes to: https://www.google.nl/webhp?complete=0&hl=nl&gws_rd=cr,ssl&ei=qLs1V5iAOIaosgHVpaPIAw

So why is this put behind it? ----> &gws_rd=cr,ssl&ei=qLs1V5iAOIaosgHVpaPIAw And what does it mean?

For a year now I have trouble getting into my google account. I have been able to change the proxy server settings to a variety of options in the tool bar "options" tab by clicking the "Advanced" link and then selecting "Connections Settings". I have reset the options to "no proxy", "auto detect proxy settings for this network", and "use system settings", always having to change it in order to get into my Google account. Now, nothing works and I need access into my Google email!!!!!! This has been an ongoing problem and I see other people have had this problem and one person stated that they are having the same problem as me but he was told to start a new thread without an answer being provided!! Really? I can't locate that new thread or an answer to fix this problem since the new settings aren't working. I even clicked the box "Do not prompt for authentication if password is saved" since my password is saved, and that isn't making a difference either.

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10, I have been having location issues when using Firefox. When I search anything in Google, I only get US results (we are located in Canada). However, Chrome and Edge both display proper Canadian results. I have checked the location of my IP address, and it shows Toronto (as it always has).

This has only been a problem since upgrading to Windows 10. When I was setting up Windows 10, I know I turned off location services because I don't trust Microsoft with any personal information. However, thinking this might be the cause of my problems, I eventually relented and turned the service back on. However, it did not fix the issue.

I have tried modifying the privacy settings for Google by clicking the little pad lock and setting location access to "allow" but that didn't fix anything either.

I'm at a loss. Firefox has been my primary browser for over a decade, but this is a deal breaker. I am currently working on an SEO project and I need my search results to be location specific.
