    Okay, so whenever I try to go to Google I am redirected to Google UK...
    This is happening in every browser..
    So I'm just wondering what I can do to fix this? (I don't know what I did to change it in the first place?)

    Yeah thats normal.

    Google will redirect you to the national website. The main search will still be the same thing.

    You either are running a UK OS or downloaded a UK English firefox instead of US english firefox

    They normally redirect you based on your IP's location.

    But you can click on "Go to Google.com" on the UK site, and it will bring you back to the Google US main site. Once you clicked that, it will save the setting in a cookie and it will always bring you to Google US automatically until either you cleared the cookies or you click on "Go to Google UK".
