I just started working from home for a UK branch of an USA company. My work involves having to use VPN to their USA head office. It all works fine. My location is obviously incorrect showing that my computer is located in the USA in their home city. I understand that.
It causes me problems with Google Search because it always show me USA based results, not UK based results. I need to be able to force Google to show me results from the UK. No, going to www.google.co.uk doesn't work, it still shows me the USA biased results.
To a lesser extent, it causes me problems with Google Maps as it keep on searching the wrong areas and returning the wrong results/directions.
I understand the VPN is causing the location issue, I am not disputing that. I am asking how to make Firefox show Google my actual location, please? I'd much prefer to avoid browser extensions. I tried changing "geo.provider.network.url" in "about:config". https://browserleaks.com/geo shows the fixed location, i.e., the location I put in. However, Google isn't fooled by this and still show me the wrong location in the USA.
Any way to force Google to show me the correct location, please? Many thanks.
