Google country settings
I'm abroad for a while, using my old Lenny laptop, and doing some Googling this morning, I noticed I was getting results from google.com- not what I wanted as I was looking specifically for UK based advice pages on a certain topic and was seeing US pages. I remembered that I'd been able to set Firefox to use google.co.uk on my other laptop while abroad- fortunately I found the link again. The Mycroft Project has a page that allows you to set Google search in Firefox to get results from just about any country's own Google page.
