How do I restore "I'm feeling lucky" search to the firefox url bar?
I used to be able to type in the name of a webpage in the firefox url bar, and I would go straight to to the website. For example, I would type in "rotten tomatoes," hit enter, and arrive at www.rottentomatoes.com. Now, instead of going directly to the website, it takes me to a google search page. This used to be set in about:config in keyword.url, but it's not working anymore. I have firefox 27 for windows.

Brings back the keyword.URL preference on Firefox 23 and up.

So, this worked on my work computer, but not at home. It's the same version of firefox. At home, I installed keyword hack, but can't find keyword.URL in about:config. Other ideas?
Hmm, create new thread for this issue, More contributors can help!
Okay, I miraculously figured it out on my own. You can add keyword:URL back if it's missing. In case anyone else is having this problem: Go into about:config, right click where it says "preference name", select "new", select "string", for the name type "keyword.URL", for the string use this: http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=
You also have to have the keyword hack add-on installed or it won't work.
