Search bar entries not working

Posted

When I enter something into the search bar to use the search engine, it does not search. I can press Enter on the search, but nothing happens. (Defstore ault Google keyboard). I can still enter website addresses and that works.

I am having another problem, potentially unrelated, posted elsewhere. Links from other apps do not open in firefox. For example, I go to the Google Play store entry for Firefox, click the link for patch notes, a pop-up notification says that a tab has been opened in Firefox. When I click on the pop-up, Firefox opens but the tab is not there (it's not open in the background or foreground, its not there).

Let's focus on the search issue in this thread.

When you type something that looks like a query, Firefox should display search engine icons on the drop-down. If you tap your preferred/default search engine icon, does Firefox send the search? Do any of the others work?

No. None of the entries work.

Strangely, turning off "Tab Queue" seems to have solved the problem.
