Why can't I search in address bar?

Whenever I try to search in the address bar it says " The address isn't valid" 'Not a URL." I did the about:config thing and reset the keyword url and keyword enable, but it still will not let me search.

Please update to version 19.0 which should fix this issue.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

I have the same problem but my Firefox is the most up to date. It happened after I deleted Ask.com from the address bar search.
