When I type a subject into the main search box and hit search nothing happens, I have to cut and paste it into the search box on the address bar. I am running Mac osx lion and Firefox 10.
Go to Solution.
Please update to Firefox 18.0.1 Update Firefox to the latest version then Reset Firefox Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings
Try to delete the search.json file and a possible search.sqlite file in the Firefox Profile Folder.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:
Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
