    on the upper right hand side of firefox, there's this search box with integrated search engines. when you use google with it, it displays search results according to your current location.
    i'm looking for a way to implement "/ncr" method to this search box.

    Yes, I forgot about telling about Add to search bar which was the tool I used to add the search engine to the search bar.

    thanks guys but neither the first nor the second link is about the issue i'm having. and i already did that about:config trick mentioned in the second link back when the new search box was introduced.
    here's what i'm trying to do:

    http://superuser.com/questions/817087/firefox-modifying-google-searchplugin-to-not-country-redirect

    the method in the first link is a no go for me because i don't keep cookies.
    and as for the one in the second link, it doesn't work for me.

    If you visit http://www.google.com/ncr just once, it saves the cookie and tells Google to always search the default Google not specific to your geo location. Make sure you aren't clearing your cookies though otherwise the saved setting won't last
