    Default Firefox homepage reset - to firefox google japan

    When i start Firefox 3.03 this is the page it goes to

    http://www.google.co.jp/firefox?clie...en-GB:official

    Last time I used this machine it automatically went to

    http://www.google.co.nz/firefox?clie...en-GB:official

    Any ideas? as i haven't changed any settings

    It's just bizarre

    Have you checked in the Tools/Options/ Main Tab that the home page is set to the one you want ??

    Try also going to google.co.nz then under the main tab, select " Use Current" - see if it changes back OK.

    For google.com if you add /ncr it becomes a "no country redirect" google. Not sure about firefox start though

    The bizarre thing is that it has just fixed itself, I clicked the home button and it took me to the nz version

    I have not knowingly changed my IP address, nor have i used any proxies

    BUT my home page was set to

    http://en-GB.start2.mozilla.com/fire...en-GB:official

    Which i am guessing would normally automatically redirect me to the NZ version but owing to some glitch was sending me to the Jap version, anyway all sorted now i have set the home page to the NZ version
