When I tried to launch Firefox this evening, I got an error message saying "Could not find Mozilla runtime" (even though it worked fine this morning). Following a suggestion on the help forum, I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. That solved the problem, but now I have no search engine; clicking the spyglass icon gives me nothing, and if I type a search term into the search bar and click the arrow (or hit Enter), nothing happens. When I open the menu and go to Options:Search, there are no search engines listed -- not even a default! When I try to add one, nothing happens. Also, I am unable to do a search from the address bar; when I type or paste a phrase or URL into the address bar and try to search, nothing happens. I am reduced to going to the Google home page and typing in a search term or a URL in order to do any web browsing. Help!
P.S. I am a senior citizen and admittedly ignorant as to anything but basic computer terminology and operation, so please (if possible) keep it simple! :-)
