Firefox : Google search options (language & region)

Posting this on Vista forum only because I could not find the forum to post question about Firefox regardless the OS. (and I use Vista)
You know on Firefox you get Google/Wiki/Amazon etc search engines on top-right. Looks like mine is set to Hong Kong Google and give me loads of Chinese web sites as a search result.
But I am not a Chinese speaker and only the reason I can think of why this is happening is my time zone setting (in Control Panel) is Beijing/Hong Kong time. Or I bought this PC in Hong Kong. (as I live in Hong Kong)
Is that the reason?
Other possible settings that could affect to this are:
Control Panel ---> Regional and Language option --> Formats (Japanese)
Control Panel ---> Regional and Language option --> location (Japan)
Control Panel ---> Regional and Language option --> Keyboard (Japanese/Microsoft IME) & (Default US English/Chinese Hong Kong)
