yes guys, thank you all very much, I did all you say but nothing by the way in running the last version of firefox. But I really want to share with you guys that I found the reason of the problem. It was IDM. Internet Downloader Manager , I'd desinstall that program and it works fine just like before and redirect everything‼.I Noticed the problem when I uninstall that program (the other browsers wasn't able to redirect anywhere) I'm sorry for doubt about firefox‼‼ My mistake... but there you have it, for all of you having the same problem, that was the real solution.beware if you do not clean the registry you do not be able to run any browser because of IDM.

Could you clarify something about your question? There are three places to enter a search in Firefox, and since each of them could be broken for a different reason, it's important to know which one is not working for you. These are:

  1. The search box in the middle of the Firefox built-in home page
  2. The search box on the right end of the "navigation toolbar" (this has a small search engine which you can drop down to change between search engines)
  3. The URL bar, which also works as a search box if it recognizes that what you entered is not a URL

Thanks.

I think you clarified your question just now, so you can ignore my first reply.

Is Firefox able to load pages from bookmarks and links, just not the address bar?

By the way, if you are running Firefox 20.0, please upgrade to a later version. There was an address bar bug in Firefox 20.0 in some business network configurations that was fixed in Firefox 20.0.1.

Try to use the SearchReset extension to reset some preferences to the default values.

Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
