Url Search not working

My question is about the url search. in the url bar...I type in a word eg. gmail and it would take me to the website now it doesn't. google images shows what I see:

All Star

Re: Url Search not working

Bring up about:config filter on keyword.URL and then right-click on the row the variable is on, and choose modify, tell us what it had and if not mozilla or google change its value to
as seen on the MozillaZine page Location Bar search for a Google search.
Also try filtering on nginx and on the ip address number you see when you bring it up.

Next check your hosts file with notepad, on Windows 7 via

notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
to make actual changes you would have to run as Administrator
  • Try using Find on nginx and on the ip address number you see when you bring it up

Re: Url Search not working
