It's an unnatural concept that is only controlled by the way it has been programmed and it certainly is able to be controlled by it's programmers and why they insist on making it only for an American market I have yet to understand.

I simply (despite many years of experience) cannot chage the default search setting from to any more. What have you done Firefox?
