back then, my firefox's address bar's default search engine is dynamic, it's always following the preferred search engine on the upper right search bar
but I clicked some ads in accident, and everything just go wrong
my default search engine in address bar will always use google, back then, it search in wikipedia when I use wikipedia search engine on the upper right search bar even when I'm just typing "firefox" in adress bar, it will automatically redirected to wikipedia search of "firefox"
tl;dr how can I make default search engine in address bar follows the search engine preferred in the search bar?
thanks for your attention

You can 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).
I've done that, but nothing changes, it still redirect to google when I search in address bar while I prefer anything other than google in the search bar
Firefox 23 versions and later will on longer support the keyword.URL pref that current Firefox versions use, but use the arch engine that is selected in the search bar, so you will have to wait a few weeks until this version gets released.

You can upgrade now to Firefox Beta that is Firefox23 already.

Not sure exactly what your old setup may have been, but whatever it was and in the near future it still should be easy to change the right hand search bar to use different search engines.
At some stage in the future there are possibilities the search and address bar may be combined, and there is also the possibility of a new search-tab system being developed.
I upgraded it to FF 23 and it works again like normal
thank you guys! :)
Worked for me! [Solved]
