19 Maybe it's me being dense, and I see you are very determined, but: many
20 people in this 3d has suggested you *how* to google in English with FF.
21 I have no special love for FF (although I use it), but all the hassle of
22 changing browser, getting accustomed, missing extensions you liked etc.
23 shouldn't be solved by simply changing your homepage to an english
24 google homepage of those that has been suggested?
26 I just can't get it, sorry. :)
27 It seems to me you want to kill a mosquito with an atomic bomb.
