My geographical location is Philippines. How does Firefox know that? When I go to google.com, it automatically sends me to the tagalog google, which I can't use.
I don't care if it redirects me to google.com.ph, that's alright, and that's what IE6 does. But I want english version.
I kinda like the google.com.ph because it gives me the choice of searching only within the Philippines, but firefox deletes that option no matter what language. The attached image is too small to read, but it's the IE6 google.com.ph, and directly below the search buttons it says "Search: O the web O pages from Philippines ", and you put a dot in the desired circle. The /ncr is useful.
. . . but if you double click on the tiny image, it gets bigger.
ncr means "no country redirect".
Google has the habit to automatically redirect you to a page in the local language based on the location of your IP.
