Google pain...

I have recently installed FFox again, direct from their site.
The Google search preference keeps defaulting to French (that's where I am).
I keep changing it to English and saving my preferences but at each boot it's back to French.
Is this another dummo program which just assumes you are the same origin as you IP address.

make that "your" IP address.

Try adding the Google UK search plugin
click here
Section 9 item 3 or 4 depending where you want to focus the search.

Just a possibility, but setting Google preferences will not work if you have disabled cookies in your browser. Check under Tools\Options\Privacy
