When I searched in the awesome bar in v22 it searched Google by default, but now it searches the selected engine from the search box. I want the awesome bar to search Google, and the search to be selected something else. I already use keywords.
I use the selected engine to mark text on a page, right click and select search from that menu. I never use Google for that, so I want that to listen to the selected engine, and the awsome bar to use Google.
How do I change that back?

A new extensions has been created to enable that. You can check it out here: Keyword Search.
Thank you jscher2000 for that extension tip. It made search work as I expect, but I would prefer a built in choice in Options or about:config.
Extensions use RAM and CPU power, and settings don't... And the extensions could do more than they tell you :)
If somebody have a about:config preference that would be great. If not I'll keep the extension.
keyword.URL was removed for Firefox 23, along with the internal code that supported that preference. An extension is needed to restore the internal code behind that preference.
