The firefox search box has stopper working? How do I activate it?

When I open the home page there's a search box in the middle under the Firefox logo. When I enter a search term and hit the blue "Search Button" nothing happens.

hello, please try installing the search reset addon & see if it can resolve the issue: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/ (a restart of the browser is necessary afterwards).

Also check the browser.search.defaultenginename pref on the about:config page and make sure that it is set to the default value Google after having run the SearchReset extension.

You can also 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.

  1. Open the about:config page via the location bar
  2. Type in the Filter bar: mstone
  3. Right-click the browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone line and select: Reset
  4. Close and restart Firefox
