I'm using Firefox. Whenever I go to Hotmail, Yahoo, Google, etc. I get myself thrown to hotmail.mx, yahoo.mx, google.mx and so on.

This of course is not what I want, and yeah, the same page gives me the option of "cancelling" the redirect – just telling it not to and marking the option of not asking me again.

Firefox doesn't save my pick though. I get redirected every single time because apparently Firefox isn't saving my preferences as it does anywhere else in any other equip, yet somehow seems my computer has a lock in this thing.

Any ideas how can I fix it?

Is this only in Firefox, or every other browser on this computer? – evan.bovie May 20 '12 at 23:17

I'm guessing it's not really a Firefox problem. Various websites automatically redirect you to country-specific pages by geolocating your IP address. For example, here's Google's page on the topic, including some possible workarounds:

Change the primary language of Firefox to English, then tell us if you keep getting redirects.

For google you need to go here
http://www.google.com/ncr
so it will stay on google.com

for other services (yahoo, hotmail...) I don't know
