    Default Address bar search unpredictable

    When I enter a string on the address bar and press enter, which should search against the default engine, I get passed to google.de and all search results are in German.

    I live in Ireland and have my default search Engine set to the Google's Irish site (google.ie). In fact, none of the configured engines have any references to German sites.

    Is this something I'm going wrong? Is there some option I'm just not seeing? Or should I just report it as a bug to Google?

    Default Address bar search not using default engine

    I have the same problem. I am in Spain but use google in English.

    Whenever I use the address bar to do a search, the engine used is NOT the default but is www.google.es - this is not what I want as all results are in Spanish.

    I have tried changing my preferences to English but they always default to Spanish. My default search engine is set to www.google.com

    What should I do to fix this?
