Hello,

The problem is actually explained in the title. However, I'll repeat it with some modification.

When I type something in my address bar, I'm expecting to be redirected to Google search results, if entered string isn't an actual web address. That's what I'm used to for quite some time in FF now. As opposed, when I now enter something in address bar, I get this opened: http://something/ Obviously, not something that's much appreciated.

Please check this link before you direct me to set keyword search via about:config, because I think that this is the way it was before, while everything was working.

Thank you, Dan

I'm using a samsung NC10 and upgraded firefox yesterday, since then no internet pages will load unless I'm constantly moving the cursor with the touchpad. IE seems to work fine.

It's particularly a problem with video streaming (eg 4od), the sound stays on but the pictures freeze until i move the cursor again

Hope you can help

Running 3.6 on Windows 7. I have deleted all cookies, deleted preferences.js, and do not know what else to do. This has been the status for about a week now. The only thing I can think of that I have installed at around the same time is Microsoft Security Essentials, but disabling its real-time protection did not change the behavior. It may be a system issue, since I have the same problem with Chrome and IE 8! I use ZoneAlarm, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11, Spybot as well, but I'm not sure how those would affect this particular setting. Thanks in advance.

If I open a new email from my inbox it takes a while to load then I can't read the email because this stupid Bing search bar pops up where the email would be and I can't see the original message. This same Bing search bar shows up in place of a new tab. I downloaded video viewing software related to bing from the internet yesterday and I think this is the source of my problem. How can I fix this?

I am trying to configure Firefox so I can use my CAC card reader with it. My problem is when I try to load a module under Tools>Options>Advanced>Encryption>Security Devices. When I try to load acpkcs201.dll (or any of the other alternate .dll files) I get an error message that says "Unable to load module".

When I try to use the DoD Configuration 1.2 add-on from forge.mil, it also is unable to make this configuration.

The CAC reader and software works fine under Chrome and IE. The only problem is the .dll wont load up in Firefox using the add-on or manually.

Does anyone know how to make this module load properly?

I am using: Windows 7 x64 Firefox 3.6.9 SCR331 card reader ActivClient 6.2

I have installed FireFox 3.6.9 and after while JavaScript has started to malfunctioning, although I have the latest Java installed (Java 6 Update 21) and JavaScript turned on in my Options menu. I have tried already several times to reinstall Java and Firefox as well, but nothing helps, the Firefox browser still ignores the installed java. I am running Windows Vista. I have had once the same problem long time ago, but don't remember, how did I solve it. Otherwise, I have been really satisfied with Firefox and would like to keep using it, however, without Javascript running it is useless.

I'm a programmer, and I'm using regExp's to simplify my life in a chat thing. Basically, ":blue:" in a chat will essentially be replaced with "". because there can be all sorts of colors, I can't use replace. Instead, I used regExp.exec(string). However, there is a major bug where every other time, the regExp.exec returns null even if there IS a match. If the chat is ":blue:", the response will alternate as :blue:,null,:blue:,null,etc. If the chat is ":blue: :red:" (e.g. two color blocks) the response will go :blue:,null,null,:blue:,null,null and so on. Basically, if there are 'x' color blocks defined, the .exec will work every x+1 times, and the other times it will not find a match. this also happens with regExp.test. I have gone through my code hundreds of times, and finally, I decided to run it in Opera. It works PERFECTLY fine. even in IE, it works. So i had to assume it was some bug with Firefox.

I hope this question catches the attention of the MOZILLA DEVELOPERS, as this is huge.

I'm not sure if it's just me. However, I have uploaded an html file onto http://jsbattle.tablocks.com/Untitled-1.html (the subdomain had a different purpose, but i figured i would put it here), and it will alert :blue: and null (at least for me). You can view the source code. An important note is that this .exec and .test glitch only happens inside functions. for example, regExp.exec twice just in a script tag will run fine, but while in a function abc() {regExp.exec} and executing abc(); abc(); it'll glitch out. I have not run extensive tests to see when this glitch occurs, this is all I know. Please help, Mozilla Developers. And if anyone knows how to contact the Mozilla Developers, tell me, or address them of this issue.
