Recently downloaded the most recent version of Firefox. I then attempted to use the "search" function. I can type the subject into the search bar space, but when "search" is clicked, there's no response.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
- Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
- Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
- Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
- Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
Further information can be found in the Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems article.

hello, please try to install the search reset addon & restart firefox afterwards: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/
Is this happening with the search bar on the Navigation Toolbar or searching otherwise?
- searching via the location bar (pref: keyword.URL)
- search bar on the Navigation Toolbar
- search bar on the about:home page (pref: browser.search.defaultenginename)
- other search bar (e.g. added by extension)
You can also check the browser.search.defaultenginename pref on the about:config page and make sure that it is set to the default value Google.
Thanks, folks! The "reset" fixed the problem.
