firefox won't allow me to make a search in the address bar anymore

usually firefox allows me to make a search in the address bar and it will take me to my search engine's results without any problems. Now, (i accidently clicked something that changed it) i get messages saying url incorrect or from my browser i get no search found. i restarted firefox and i want to be able to search with the address bar again

Re: firefox won't allow me to make a search in the address bar anymore

In the address bar type "about:config" without the quotation marks.

Then in the Filter field type keyword.

Then double click keyword.URL

and type or copy and paste the following: "http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=" without the quotations.

And there you have it. Your browser will use google to search.
