Test some of the other search engines in your Firefox. Any problem?

Hi sandraanny, there are so many possible bars that I need to first ask you which one you're using. For example:

  • on Firefox's main toolbar, the address bar (where the address of the current page usually appears)
  • on Firefox's main toolbar, the search bar (a shorter bar with icons for different search engines)
  • on the built-in Firefox home page, a bar in the middle of the page
  • on the Google home page at https://www.google.com/, a bar in the middle of the page

Usually you don't need to interact with the drop-down unless you want to select a particular suggestion from the list (the currently selected suggestion should be highlighted).
