    I have several browsers loaded on my pb but mainly use the stock browser. I have google.com set as my homepage and the pb set to start in my homepage.

    Last week I noticed that the browser opened the google page as normal but the words were in french. Everything is identical so I have just been pressing search without reading the language because I know it's the search button. The other day I noticed it and checked all the settings on my pb. Language settings are correct, time zone is correct but when I open the stock browser, even though the homepage is set to Google.com it loads google.fr?

    I then set the homepage to yahoo.co.uk and it's perfect again but when I reset it to google.com it loads the Google.fr page.

    Now as I am new to the pb I would appreciate some CONSTRUCTIVE help, which I already know I won't get but one has to try doesn't one?

    Please help a complete newbie with this problem.

    Don't know if this applies to the Playbook stock browser. but this is what you would do on a desktop browser: Force Your Browser to Load Google.com instead of Google's Local Domain
    Oh, I forgot, I would never try to help you again...

    Deleting all existing cookies beforehand
    might be a good idea also...

    I had that happen with the old Uzard (Korean) browser using Windows Mobile. I would type yahoo.com and it would go to the Korean website. I'd be interested if the "ncr" switch works or not, as I was no where near Korea at the time and should never have been redirected. I attributed it to them interacting with their own servers somehow. Where in the world is Matt Lauer when it happens? Surely not Flodira...they don't speak French down there...not even S_O_M-ese.

    That's the wrong question at this point. Correct: how's the weather in Katmandu? It's sad_old_man we're dealing with
