Alternatively, you can use the URL or address bar as a search bar.
At last! Thank you very much. That worked a treat!
I have this problem as well. I see in Firefox Options, language prefs, it is ticked for French & although I can ADD English results I CAN'T delete French...............WHY? Therefore I ALWAYS GET FRENCH SEARCHES. It seems stupid to have to configure something you DON'T REQUIRE? I have my Google search defaulted to English, it works using Chrome but not Firefox. Is there a way of defaulting English without changing plugin codes etc, if not WHY NOT?
