How do I fix my main browser so that when I type in certain keywords, they take me directly to a website?

Posted

On my Mac, I use Firefox as my main Internet browser. When I open Firefox and type in certain keywords in the browser bar, they used to take me directly to the website. For example if I just typed in "apples wiki" it would take me right to the Apples Wikipedia page. Or if I typed in the words "best buy" it would take me right to Best Buy's main website instead of having to type out the entire URL. Now when I do that, it just takes me right to Google's homepage.
