Firefox Showing Uk Results In U.s.?
Posted 27 January 2009 - 03:44 PM
on my colleague's PC, using Firefox, anytime you search you get UK results in the search engines, whether it be in google, yahoo or msn, even though we are in the U.S. It seems to be that her Firefox is set to UK somehow because search results are U.S. in IE.
does anyone know why this is happening and/or how to fix it? we uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, but that didn't seem to do anything.
I appreciate any feedback!

I seem to recall reading a news story back in October (? I think) where Firefox was going to be building some sort of Location Detection at the user level. Going from memory here, but I think it was called something like Geode and I think it was first released as a plugin, but that they were talking about having this location thingee be the default setting during some version of Firefox 3.x. I'm 99% sure the story was on the BBC News site if you want to search for it.
Even if all of that is reasonably accurate I still don't have a clue how this could relate since you're not in the UK, obviously. Unless something in that Firefox location database has gotten mixed up, or if there's a way to override what it tries to set for itself and someone has done that without realizing it.
