When HTTPS Everywhere 2.0.2 extension is active, searches in the built-in Firefox Search Box go to https://encrypted.google.com (instead of https://www.google.co.uk as desired). This means that I can't get UK results without having to go to https://www.google.co.uk manually and type my search term.

Is there any easy way to get the Firefox Search Box to send searches to https://www.google.co.uk?

Using Firefox 11.0 on XP SP 3.

Thanks for your comment. However, I'm using my work-around below for now. –  Goto10 Apr 25 '12 at 12:03

I resolved the issue by going to the HTTPS Everywhere Preferences. In the rules, search for "Google". There is a rule called "Search www.google.com", which is currently unselected by default. Select this rule and press "OK". Searches in the Firefox search bar now show results from https://www.google.co.uk as desired.
