I am currently using Firefox 24 and keyword.URL no longer exists in about:config. Is there another way to possibly customize the awesome bar's search engine in Firefox 24?

  • UPDATE*

I figured out how to customize the awesome bar search engine in Firefox 24. However, I'm not a big fan of how to do that because I can't customize it to the search engine I want. You have to pick either Bing, Yahoo!, or Google... I use Ixquick as my search engine and when I install their search engine to Firefox it doesn't automatically make it the awesome bar search engine when selected.

If you don't know how you select a search engine for the awesome bar in Firefox 24 then you do this... In the top right hand corner of Firefox where the small search box is, select the search engine of your choice to search with. This will automatically become Firefox's awesome bar search engine and the main search engine if you're using the default home page on Firefox.

In Firefox 23+ the search engine used in the location bar is the search engine that is selected in the Search Bar.

You can consider to use a (one letter) keyword search for searching via the location bar.

You can set a keyword for an installed seach engine via Manage Search Engines (click the search engines icon on the search bar).

Search engines aren't all equal. Install a search engine from the Mycroft pages at MozDev.

The Search Bar is now completely useless :/

The only use for the Search Bar was to be able to easily use 2 different search engines : in the Search Bar I used wordreference and in the Address Bar I could use google.

What is the use of having 2 search bar that search in the same place ?

A possibility is to disable keyword search (keyword.enable = false) and use a (one letter) keyword search for searching via the location bar.
That way you can search using any search engine.

Doesn't the Keyword Search extension work for you (there has been an update)?

I'm not sure if you're talking to me or amanteaux Cor-el, but if you're talking to me then I personally don't mind both my address bar and search bar being the same.

Cor-el, if you are talking to me, yes the Keyword Search extension works fine.

Thanks for the advice B-Dubs. It is indeed not the best place to express my opinion about this functionality.
