Why has 'Google custom search' come to ruin my life?

Posted

I have used the nifty little thing in firfox's about:config called keyword.URL to search for things on google's 'I'm feeling lucky' feature. Recently, instead of going to the usual search results, it takes me to this thing called 'Google custom search' which reminds me more of Bing than Google.. I hate Bing.. At the beginning when I first started using keyword.URL I got it to take me to the top result of a google search. After a while that stopped working and I had to click on it myself, which was fine, I guess. But now, it literally sucks ass with this custom search! I realize it's not a fault at your end but I still need help with it and I am lazy and I am desperate. PLEASE HELP ME FIX THIS!!!!!

All Hail Gaben, Our Lord And Savior!
