Question

How do I stop my URL bar(top center) from using the same search settings as my search bar(top right)

I want my URL/address bar(the space in the top center) to use google search when I type into it, and I want the search bar(the one in the top right corner) to search on wikipedia when I type in it. It was previously working like this, but suddenly firefox no longer is allowing me to use separate engines in the two spaces.

I've already tried setting the keyword.url to "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=" , but that setting is for some reason being ignored and is defaulting to whatever I have set on the search bar. If I set the search bar to wikipedia the URL bar uses that, if I set it to amazon the URL bar uses that instead.

Like I said, it was working the way I liked yesterday, and today it no longer is. I have no changed any settings between yesterday and today that would cause this.
