I edited the torrc-defaults file and added the line ExitNodes {GB} to get a UK exit node. (I myself am not in the UK.)

However, other sites, like whatismyip.com seem to disagree on where I am and what my IP is.

Google also thinks I'm in France. If I go to google.com, I am redirected to google.fr.

This is all within a single session. This happens even if I go to all these sites at the same time.

Why is this happening? I'm looking for a technical description of it's possible for different sites can think I'm in different places. (A solution to the problem would be cool, too.)

By the way, I'm using Tor Browser 5.5.5 on OS X 10.10.1.

Update: I've tried to add StrictNodes 1 and ExcludeNodes {fr}, but it didn't change the output of whatismyip.com. Google.com did stop redirecting me to google.fr .
