    Hi! I want to say firstly that I don't speak english but I tried. I have a little problem with my Searchbar (linkbar) when I search something I'm automatically redirected to google.pl. I look everywhere in the settings and I find nothing. I just want to search my things on google.com or google.be. I hope that you can find a solution. Thank you

    What is your actual location (country)? Opera asks Google where you are and redirects you accordingly. It is possible to edit a file and change the location setting, if you change your location to say you are in the US you would get google.com.

      I'm actually in Belgium. It's a desk computer so he never change of place. When I go to google maps, he give me the good location. Where is the special file to edit?

      Thanks for all!

      Where is the special file to edit?

      It's 'Local State' in Opera's profile folder. You can find the path to profile in Menu > About Opera.

      You need to change the country code in the following lines:

      "location":{"country":"br","country_from_server":"BR","timestamp":"1516099273600000000"}

        The problem stay the same... When I change the code and I save it I don't have any problems. After when I open Opera, I see my mouse loading something and It doesn't work. The code change by him self...

        Sorry if I'm a bit confusing when I explain.

        Did you allow Google to get your location by chance?

          'Local State' workaround doesn't work anymore, for months.
