When I start a new Kagi session, by visiting kagi.com or searching from the location bar, Kagi resets my region to the default set permanently in preferences.
It should continue to use the region that I have manually set in my previous search, until I change it back
E.g. My region is set to "Australia" in Kagi preferences. I start a new search, and set the region to "International". I click on a result and navigate away from the results page. I then start a new search from the location bar. My region for this search is set back to "Australia". It should continue to be "International" until I explicitly set it back.
This is the Duck Duck Go behaviour and in my opinion it is more likely to align with what international users want than the current Kagi behaviour
