ebay & IE9

  highside 21:37 31 Mar 2011

Could someone help please?
I just installed IE9 (from IE8) Windows 7 and know I cannot default to ebay UK. ie If I click on the google bar ebay button it goes to ebay.com
I have right clicked on the button menu and typed in ebay UK to no avail.
I can of course get there by typing 'ebayUK' into google but with IE8 I simply clicked on ebay in the google toolbar.

Thanks for reply, yes clicking your link takes me to UK site, but clicking the ebay icon on my PC takes me to .com and dollars.

To get the ebay button on the Google Toolbar you have to

If you go to the UK Ebay site, drag the Ebay symbol from the address bar to your desktop, then when you double click it you will be taken to the UK site.

Start again:
To get the ebay button on the Google Toolbar you have to add it through the Google Toolbar Button gallery. There are 2 options ebay and ebay.co.uk. You appear to have chosen ebay instead of ebay.co.uk.

You can also add ebay to the favorites bar.

Thanks all - have added it to favourites bar as suggested by Woolwell.
Strange though as I have definately got co.uk in the google buttons menu but the button will not change in the google toolbar, it just remains as .com

In case it helps anyone else I have received help from ebay saying that IE9 is not compatible with ebay, they sent me instructions on reverting to IE8.
Thanks to all.

I don't use ebay but have you tried running IE9 in compatability view for that site ?

Although I don't use ebay as such it all seems to display correctly (I'm using IE9 and Vista) on ebay UK

Only telling what the expert at ebay said.
I had no problem with IE9 or googling & using ebay, but I could not have ebay UK in the google toolbar.
It was a backwards step to have to type ebay.co.uk into google every visit.
All is well back in IE8 where "ebay uk" & "my ebay" are on the task bar.
