Check your profile folder for a user.js file and try renaming/moving it.

I just checked and there is no user.js in any of my profiles.

EDIT: I also searched a bit and found this setting is locked with lockPref("keyword.enabled", false); by the admin...

Make sure keyword.enabled is default true in about:config.

When I go to about:config I have keyword.enabled set to false but I cannot change it because it is shown in grey with a lock on the left side... Might be related to a system lock?
