Change default search to Google Australia
I want to change my default search engine to Google Australia so I get more relevant result, rather than changing the URL after I have searched. Please tell me there is a way to do this! If not I'll have to change browsers because 99% of my searches are local so I have to change this all the time.
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:73.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/73.0
Would you please go to Google's Settings and scroll down to "Region Settings" => choose "Australia" and then click on the blue "Save" button.
To go to Google's Settings : on Google's main page; type in the search bar : "google search settings" and click on "Settings" => "Search settings".
My Google settings are already set to Australia?
I gather when Firefox sends your search to google.com, Google doesn't redirect your search to google.com.au automatically. That does happen for a lot of countries, but I guess not Australia for some reason?
Unfortunately, all the old country-specific search plugins on the Add-ons site got deleted due to the requirement for a new format. I created one for google.com.au just now and it needs to be reviewed before it goes live. Not sure whether that will done today (it's 16:45 in California), but here's the link for future reference when it comes up:
Or check out the ones on this site:
Thank you! Can't wait :)
I visited Australia last year and ever since all my search results assume I'm there - I'm back in the UK. I don't use Google, I use Ecosia. What do I need to change? Oops .. just checked out Ecosia settings and have now changed .. I was assuming it was something to do with Firefox!
