Regards!! After firefox update 90.0 the web search bar not responding i type in, but is going to search bar thanks!

Chosen solution

Do you mean on the Firefox Home / new tab page? Does this preference from Firefox 89 still exist in Firefox 90?

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false

Success?

I'm not sure why they added that new behavior. Maybe it is to urge people to search from the address bar instead of the page??
