Leo, while running the latest 1.1 build:

Gecko  http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-b2g18/rev/1433d653b701
Gaia   5cb67ea419b0a642ea11b6c8f93c3ee50318e90a
BuildID 20130808041202

STR:
1. Search for Vancouver
2. Observer the attached results.

I would not expect to see a NYC app come up in the search results for Vancouver.

Search for Taiwan in the search bar

Searching for Taiwan shows both NYC and Tampa Bay.

Hi Marcia, 

Can you please where you were located when you searched for these queries? Because you seem to be getting US localized content. 

Thanks in advance

Was in the Mt. View, CA office when I got these results. Are we supposed to be getting that info only when we are in the actual location?

Hi Marcia, 

At the moment you will be getting US content due to your location. We are working on narrowing the results (so in the future, you'll get NY results, for example, only in NY) 

We are doing the necessary changes so you don't get these irrelevant results. However, take into consideration that your location will affect your results greatly. 

Thanks and kind regards
