I am constantly getting search results from outside the US

I have been using brave for a few years now. I use it for search all the time. I’m constantly getting search results from outside the US. I have the local search zip code entered, etc. filled out correctly. It would be a very rare instance that I would want to see an Australian or UK website. I generally only want to see results from the continental US.

How can I fix this? I am about to have to switch search engines.

Windows 11
Brave Version v1.62.162 (Feb 7, 2024)

Thanks!
Chris

is local results enabled?
