Re: [tor-talk] Tor Browser and my location



You'll want that to be https://www.google.com/ncr?noj=0&gws_rd=ssl (note the lack of trailing slash)

But, it looks like it strips the query string when it redirects you to google.com though, so it may not be possible to keep the noj & gws_ssl.

Google will redirect you to a region specific version of Google based on
geo-location of your source IP. This the the IP of the Tor exit node you're
using, which is why it differs to your location.

If you set your homepage to https://www.google.com/ncr (append the query
string you want to use if desired) you should stay on the .com domain

I do like Tor Browser, but I'd like to know why the Tor Browser places me
(according to Google) everywhere except where I am actually located? I am
in central Arizona, but every time I open Tor Browser my start page (
https://www.google.com/?noj=0&gws_rd=ssl) changes to various other
countries, ie: sometimes Italy, Netherlands, Germany, etc. but never USA! I
would like to see Tor Browser open and load my home page(s) as I prefer all
the time!
