after the update
Hi since I updated Firefox last night, I can't seem to use the search bar anymore, I'm talking about the usual one, the search bar in the middle of the page under the Firefox globe. As soon as I type the first letter in this search bar, it writes into the adress bar, and nothing is displayed in the search bar at all, it stays empty. It's like the only option I have now is the adress bar, the search bar is useless and though it's ok for an adress it is not for a proper research. I wonder how to sort this out. Thanks for your help !
Hi, the search engine has been merged with the address bar as they both do the same thing.
If you only want to use the search engine to search, you can add a search bar next to the address bar
How to activate:
Menu, Settings, Search. Choose the second option from the search bar and you're done.
How to include it:
Menu, More Tools, Customize Toolbar... Now just drag it to the upper right corner, next to the address bar and then click Done.
Thanks for your reply Felipe, that was quick! I know about the search bar that can be added next to the adress one but it's very small and not central, it's not working for me, I'm a researcher and I need to see what I'm doing. Too bad for me! Thanks again !
