Hi! I can't find a setting to select a region for the New Tab page, so I assume this is a bug or feature in development.

 

Whenever performing a search in the search box on the New Tab page, the results are always returned in US English. This is especially a problem when looking up products to buy (pricing from US suppliers in US currency).

 

Compounding this, my default country for Bing is then set to United States, so I have to manually switch back to United Kingdom. As this happens each time a search is performed on the New Tab page, I tend to avoid using it completely for the moment!

 

Hopefully this is in the pipeline to be fixed in a future build. Cheers!

 

(Currently affecting build 76.0.182.6 - but it did affect previous builds too. Under Settings, only language listed is "English (United Kingdom)" but this seems to have no effect for search issue.)

@Stanley Yau This happened to me too.

I've got the same issue.  Hopefully, it will be resolved soon.
