I've been into the tools option to check I have other several other search engines checked, like amazon ebay twitter etc. but no drop down menu appears from the one-click search engines bar when I click on it...only the option to change my preferences. I have checked all the engines displayed in the tools, then options, then search window section and restarted firefox but still nothing when I click on the search bar. How can I fix this please?
