Firefox 65 - Address bar search not working

If I type something in the address bar to search and press Return (or the green arrow at the right end), absolutely nothing happens. Ditto if I click on the top entry that comes up in the list below the address bar. Other items there will work but they're not what I'm searching for! And I do have the correct setting in Preferences-Search I believe.

I've also tried using the FF search box (after making appropriate change in Preferences-Search) and that doesn't work either.

I have DuckDuckGo as my preferred search tool, but I've tried changing to Google and find the same problem.

I know the alternative is just to search from a new tab but it's a pain and I don't understand why the address bar has stopped working like this (at least for me).

Thanks!
