I'm in Australia, but use a macbook from the uk.

When I use the google search in firefox, it goes to google.com instead of google.com.au.

How can I change this?

Go to http://www.google.com/ncr. This will install a "no country redirect" cookie that avoids country specific search results (and no longer will forward from google.com.au to google.com. Now If you ever want to reset your browser to enable this feature, just delete your google cookies.
