Can't use Search Tools in 'Google search'

When I search using Google, on Firefox 18 Beta 4, I get a list of hits.

All good, but when I want to customize the results, for example to restrict the hits to the last 24 hours, I click on 'Search Tools' - which should list the options.

But I get nothing.

The page title flicks between 'Redirect' and 'Connecting' repeatedly.

The address bar shows the following: data:text/html,<title>Redirect</title><a href="" style="color:blue"></a><meta http-equiv=refresh content="0;url=">

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Was not cookies. Must be an add-on, as Firefox Safe Mode works fine.

If it does work in Firefox Safe-mode then disable all extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one extension at a time until the problem reappears.

Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
