Flag fox add-on defaults to a Ireland server when I go to amazon, it should stay in the US

I have the add-on from Mozilla, FlagFox it tells me where the server that I am on right now is located. When I go to the Amazon web site this goes immediately to a Ireland flag. The information FlagFox gives me about this server is as follows. www.amazon.com 176.32.98.166 Ireland. I am a little skeptical to log into my account because of this. Can you help me with this? This occurs on 2 different Ubuntu systems and 1 Linux Mint system. I am running Fire Fox 17 . Thank you Clyde

The add-on you have shows you the location of the server of the website - it also provides many more. You can Disable or remove Add-ons to see if it helps. You can also contact the developer of the addon at daveg.extensionfeedback@gmail.com
