    Hello jcimarron,

    Thans for the link but it just shows out how you can select the default browser search google in all browsers.

    I cannot set it to my local

    I think this is really strange because how many users don't want to change the to their local google. like (for germany) or (for france) I want to do the same (for Belgium)
    Because the search resluts are in local language and not in english.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, I had used this before. But it doesn't work because teh add-on is for french speaking part of Belgium not the Flemish speaking part :-)

    However I found the solution.

    The add on to fix this problem is add to search bar

    It can add any search box you find on the internet to the search bar of firefox.
    So I used in dutch
    then right clicked in the search field (of google) and select add to search bar.
    It then comes available.

    It's a pitty it is so hard to find. It took my like 3 weeks.
    Thanks for the help anywayS.
    The case can be closed.
