Search option not working after updating Firefox. How can I correct this? Don't want to use Explorer, but will have to if we can't fix this.
An automatic update ran this morning. Noticed when I started up the computer, a message came up saying that Firefox was running, even tho' it wasn't. Update finished, and now I cannot get the search tool to work. Help!!!
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).
If there is a problem with searching via the default about:home page then try to reset the search engine used on the about:home page.
Reset the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone pref via the right-click context menu to the default on the about:config page and close and restart Firefox to restore the about:home page to its default.
Right-click the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone line and select: Reset
Close and restart Firefox
If this didn't help then delete the delete the chromeappsstore.sqlite file in the Firefox Profile Folder and repeat the above.
You can also check for problems with preferences and try to rename or delete the prefs.js file and possible numbered prefs-##.js files and a possible user.js file to reset all prefs to the default values.
