Re: [Bug-gnuzilla] Default Search Engine

MetaGer still has the problem of prioritizing german results.

Example: Select language "español" (=spanish) and search the word
Madrid. Most results are in german, when first ones should be in spanish.
Another example: Select language "español" (=spanish) and search the
word Lleida (in catalan). Most results are in german, when first ones
should be in catalan.

This is not useful for me to set many people MetaGer as default search
