A keyboard key got stuck down and made things go haywire. When I rebooted, Firefox no longer started with Google at the home page. I changed it in Settings to Google.com, but it doesn't look like it used to. I believe I previously had another URL for Google that had letters after it, but I can't remember what that were exactly, it was something like Google swl or swr, maybe with a slash somewhere. Does anyone know what Google URL is?

BTW - is there any advantage using the gws re=ssl extension over just google.com? Someone must have suggested it to me, but it's been so long I forgot why.

Don't know if if gives an advantage but here's a site that explains what it means:
