Re: when I type key words and click search it does not open

hello, i'm not entirely sure if i understand the issue correctly, but you could try to install the search reset addon (&do a restart of the browser afterwards) - it will revert the most common search related settings in firefox back to their defaults: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

Where are you searching?

  • searching via the location bar (pref: keyword.URL)
  • search bar on the Navigation Toolbar
  • search bar on the about:home page (pref: browser.search.defaultenginename)
  • other search bar (e.g. added by extension)

Thank you but I clicked the addon but I am not sure how to restart browser. I typed in the search bar on the homepage - nothing opened and the browser had about home in the address.
