How to remove annoying location auto-detection by Google

If you are in some countries, when you search in Google, it may auto-redirect you to search results specified according to your location. For example, if you are in Hongkong, Google will automatically search from google.com.uk, which is undesired for many of us.

I just submitted a search plugin to Firefox community, you can install it to avoid Google to do that, i.e., it always search from google.com.

Please search "Li, Zhao", and install the plugin with id=16536 (when mouse move over, the ID will display) from:
all google's search plugins

It is indeed VERY annoying. Just because you are in one location does not mean you even speak the language.
AND, they can't detect it 100% correctly...
