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!

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

I need Google.ca I don't want a solution I just want to have the option to use google.ca to come included with Firefox just like it did in older builds. I know it is gone because in about:config country code is already set to CA.

If you think Google.ca is useless, think again. You try to search to buy something from walmart.ca instead walmart.com same with bestbuy or newegg, sears, amazon etc. Many stores who have different products and prices depending on chossing .com or .ca and you need Google.ca that has a choose websites from Canada option.

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.

still when opening new tab i get the same thing, a page of maybe threee tiles with one of them being google but needing me to double click on it or click on the home page icon to place google on page as search engine.

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.

So I just updated to Firefox 44, I was using Google maps and looking at a particular location using streetview. At first everything is going fine but after a few revolutions of the picture and going up and down the street the picture freezes and responds to my mouse clicks at a super slow rate. I have to keep refreshing the page to get it back to normal speed response. It is starting to get really annoying to have to refresh the page after every movement I make. I read something that privacy extensions could hinder Google streetview so I tried disabling them and it is still a problem. Anyone else had this issue? Knows how to fix it? If nothing else can someone tell me how I can downgrade back to Firefox 43, I had no problems with streetview on that.

I've been away for a few days and have just checked Google Calendar on my PC but find it's totally unresponsive. Having searched the Google forum it looks as if folk are saying it's a Firefox issue. Don't know if this is correct, all I know is, I can access Calendar on Android but not using Firefox browser on my PC.
