When I use the small google search bar, the full screen results page that comes up has a `net` and `ireland`options and not UK! This happened after start up 24 hours ago and none of the google or firefox suggestions that I`ve tried have helped. I`ve removed `google ie` from cookies under the privacy/options/tools.
I would like to have `google uk` back as the default site if anyone can help please?

That happened to me. I got stuck with French searches, but I'll be darn if I can remember what I did. I remember it was just poking around the Google page. I'll play around and post back
