Google removed nz page filter

really annoying you used to be able to click on tools, search options and select NZ pages. Now they have removed it.

Really annoying when you are trying to find things based in NZ.

Been gone for a long time. Just type "NZ" at the end of your search, works the same.

I seemed to remember that was removed about 10 years ago?

I think there were ways to fix it, but they kept changing.
Now I just add site:nz

Works fine for me, using google.co.nz search from chrome address bar.

No they moved it to a drop down menu. Was working for me earlier this week

nzoomed, Apr 21, 7:38pm
Thats what was visible to me. Not any more

andrew691, Apr 21, 8:03pm
Tools drop down menu

Still there.

I still have tools>New Zealand in the dropdown.

Just checked still there for me.

OK, this is weird, as ive just realised its only one of my computers that has this missing, its OK on this computer, but my other computer with a fresh install of firefox has it missing.

Check the address bar if it's google.com or google.co.nz. Google.com won't have anything under the tools dropdown. Google.co.nz will have Any country or Country:New Zealand as options.

If you're using firefox are you searching using the quick search box, or typing the search directly into the address bar to search? I think the search box hardcodes google.com.

I use it all the time, it's under tools, country New Zealand.

Firefox is an easy fix:

Just click the Highlighted plugin to install google.co.nz as your default search engine.

Yeah I just realised, onthe same PC chrome still has it firefox does not.
