Problem with `--search` command line option
I often launch Firefox from the command line and make heavy use of the `--search` option. Recently, the `--search` option has only been working when a Firefox window is already open. Basically, when there's already a Firefox window open, `--search` works exactly as expected, but when there's not a window open, Firefox ignores the `--search` command and opens my homepage instead.
I'm using Firefox 67.0 on Fedora 29. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Do you see error messages in the console if you use that to do the search? Does it help if you specify the profile as well via -P profile ?
I tried `firefox --search "test"` and `firefox -P default --search "test"` in a console just now. Both opened my homepage without searching, and neither produced any console output.
