@sgunhouse Is it Opera VPN specifically, or any VPN? Either way, changing address bar search to Bing works for now.

Searching with Google (address bar or google.com): Captchas or full blockOpera for Mac
Google has become very frustrating to use with Opera/VPN. Much of the time I either need to slog through several select-all-images-with-roads captchas, or get blocked straight away ("We're sorry, but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.") This may or may not be related to the fact that Google thinks I'm in the Ukraine, though I never have this problem with Opera/VPN for iOS.
VPN set to USA, Google presents results in UkranianOpera for Mac
When I use VPN (virtual location: USA), Google defaults to Ukranian and presents results in the Cyrillic alphabet. I've tried a few different virtual location settings, and some work (like Netherlands reverts to google.nl) but for USA (and several other location settings) it reverts to google.com.ua (Ukraine). Any idea how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
