URL fixup not working
I check the about:config and this option is enabled with appropriate prefix and suffix. let's just say everything is at default. however, when I type in "yahoo" , it gives me "http://yahoo/" instead of "www. yahoo.com"
this is a fresh new install FF19 on Android 4.2.2
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:19.0) Gecko/19.0 Firefox/19.0
If I enter yahoo, mine runs a Google search...
If I set keyword.enabled to false, then try yahoo, fixup works as expected.
In your about:config, do you have these (default values):
- browser.fixup.alternate.prefix = www.
- browser.fixup.alternate.suffix = .com
Edit: After posting, I noticed you said you do have those defaults.
Turning off the keyword service seriously reduces the usefulness of the awesome bar. There must be a way for these to coexist (as I think they do on the desktop version).

yeah, I agree those features are very useful. But it doesn't seem like Android FF respects the settings at all. I turned off keyword.enabled, fixup still does not work. Or if I turned off fixup and enable keyword, still does not work. I keep getting the "http://yahoo/" url
A version 20 was just released. Could you test and see whether it works any better?
Note that the Quit item was removed from the menu in Android 4+: where did the Quit button go?
thanks! the new version somehow fixed this :)
