Try this from Gooogle... It's forgotten where you are ... http://www.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=873

On firefox - if you go to the Manage Search engine option on the menu bar, you can click on New Search Engine - then search for http://www.google.com.ncr an add-on will come up for google in English and it will alway take you to the default google US site. Just move this google to the top of the menu search list and you will always be able to search the default google from the menu bar. After you've performed your first search - the open google window will stay US based - even if you do a different search

Thanks for the reply but after 2 years, I doubt whether the OP is still monitoring this thread.
