Default to UK Search in place of the Web in Google

  Ex plorer 02:40 28 Jan 2009

Hi I am using FireFox OS Vista, I have the UK search button next to Google Search as 99% of my searches are for the UK.

When you type in to Google search and hit enter it always goes to the Web to search.
Is there any way to default the search, to the UK search after hitting enter and stop it going to the Web.

In the right hand address bar click on the G or whatever shows on yours.Then manage search engine, and pick google or whatever one you want.

The English (British) version of Firefox has .uk versions of the search engines, if yours goes to .com for all of them you have the English (US) version. click here

Backup your profile and install the GB version over the top. click here

Ok down-loaded UK British version.

Now when I search on the opening page in google and select the UK for fist time it defaults to the UK when hitting enter as I would like.

Only when I search from the google bar and hit enter does it default to the Web.

Thanks all for your help.
