Search bar not working

When I type something in the Search Bar and hit Enter, nothing happens. Nothing also happens when I click on the magnifying glass. I can type something in the Awesome Bar to search, and that seems to work fine.

Re: Search bar not working

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.


You can also try to delete search.sqlite and search.json in the Firefox Profile Folder

That happens when a Adobe pdf file is open in a firefox tab. Close down the pdf and try again.
