Integrated search

Is someone able to tell me why the integrated search feature on my PFF 1.5 works fine EXCEPT for the Google option. I select google search from the list and enter in a search string, instead of then displaying the resluts page it just takes me to Google's homepage. This is quite annoying actually since I find Google superior to all the others.
Also when it takes me to the Google homepage the page is in Chinese, I assume this is because I'm currently living in China, but I'm not Chinese. So how can I get it to give me English?

Cheers,
gabe

Hmm.

The Google site itself must have defaulted to Chinese, since your computer is located in China. You have to change the language setting on the Google site itself to use English. To do this, go to www.google.com, click "Language Tools", then select English under the section "Use the Google interface in your language."
