I'm trying to use "Search Bar" and "Address Bar" to search in Google (my default search engine). But after the recent update, I'm facing a problem that searching something by means of "Search Bar" and "Address Bar" is not working and ends up with "Server not found" error message sometimes. Sometimes it works and sometimes it fails. But typing something directly in Google.co.in is always giving the results. Please fix this issue, I have verified the same in other machine's Firefox also.

Members,

Here's my dilemma:

When I type a new word in address bar (a word that I've never search for before or opened any website with) the only option I get is to go to search engine page

I want Firefox to show me complete url of words that I type in address bar, irrespective of that word being searched for in past or not.

For example: I never searched for or opened www.yahoo.com, when I type Yahoo in search bar I get option to go to a search engine. I want Firefox to give me option to go to www.yahoo.com

Also, if I type Yaho (not Yahoo) for the very first time in browser, it should automatically give me options like www.yahoo.com

Is this possible?

I updated firefox recently. My search bar will only use what I have set for the default. when I click on the "change search settings" button, all the search engines I had checked before to be on the search bar list are STILL checked. so for some reason they aren't showing up in the search bar when i go to search..just the default search engine. Please help!

Before ver 52 Firefox (and now in Win10), there was some obvious way of doing it in Options (I think "custom" on the drop-down list). Now selecting from list of default searchers in Options gives only search names, not what their URLs are or what options they may include, and no "custom" to add your own. I need to include a parameter in a Google search that includes verbatim, and the paramater has been the same for many years, I only have recently found no way to include it, although it does work fine for home page, new tab, and other places where a search engine is called up. The address bar is the only place I see no way of entering it. I have searched "about:config" for every instance of googlea and inserted the URL with the verbatim paramer, and still no success. It is everywhere correct, except for searches from the address bar. The URL Firefox puts on the address bar appears to now be inalterable for any given searcher choice. Although not relevant to the problem, the exact URL I prefer is (which most serious searchers love once they use it):

  https://www.google.com/? newwindow=0&pws=0&num=100&safe=off&tbs=li%3A1

The most critical parameter for "verbatim" is &tbs=li%3A1 plenty weird, but works. Much appreciation and "golden buzzer" for solution. BillBailer

Lately I have not been able to search in google directly from address bar, which used to work flawlessly earlier. It gets stuck at "connecting" and nothing loads for ages. Tried clearing cache and cookies, and also tried in safe mode. I changed search engines and it worked in bing,yahoo, etc. The problem is only with google. I installed "google SSL" search from firefox addons and even that didn't work. However, I can easily visit www.google.com and search. Moreover, I have no problems using google search/sites using chromium browser. I am using firefox 50 on ubuntu linux.

Version 50.0 Win7 64bit

Search configuration has stopped working as it used to since the last 2 or3 versions of Firefox.

I have always had "provide search suggestions" tick box blank in search options

and under privacy options only bookmarks ticked under location bar suggestions

This always had the effect of only offering suggestions from my bookmarks

History is always cleared and is not ticked in the suggestions box

Now everything I type is being tracked by my search engine and I get lines of dropdown search suggestions. Why has this changed and how do I stop it? Is this just a side-effect of Firefox spying on me?

Palemoon still behaves exactly as I expect and require.

Normally in Options, Search, you'd right click the Search Engine and click Edit and input your keyword. Then type in that keyword before your search word for that search engine to work. But in Firefox there seems to be no way to add a keyword to any search engine. Did I miss something? Is it there from before and they've neglected to remove it even though there is no function? I'm perplexed. Call me weird but I don't like wasting time clicking the search bar, typing the thing I'm searching for, then clicking some icon. What a waste of time. You should be able to just go Alt_D (you're at the address bar), type your keyword and search word, hit Enter and its searching. Takes about 2 seconds with reasonable keyboard proficiency. It seems like software is getting dumbed down year by year.

For some time now, probably weeks (?), I've noticed the default Google searchplugln is giving me localized suggestions when I try to search for something.

For example, I'm currently in Mexico, so when I start typing "a", "aeromexico", "amazon mexico" among other localized suggestions in Spanish are the ones that come up. With "c", "computrabajo", "cinepolis" and the like are the suggestions I get. This was not the behavior of the searchplugin in the past, as far as I remember.

The results do take me to the google.com not google.com.mx, though, but I'd really like to know how I can (re)set the searchplugin for English-only or non-localized suggestions.

In Firefox 38.7.1, I know I can remove one-click search engines in:

chrome://browser/content/search/engineManager.xul

- except for the last one. How do I remove the last search engine? I could go to great length explaining why I don't want my browser to automatically perform searches in any circumstances, but suffice it to say that unwanted, automatic functionality will by definition hamper the way a person works. I am sure it is possible to disable this, or better, completely remove it, but how?

I've been having a great deal of trouble with Firefox lately on my MS Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10. It began with my passwords not automatically filling in. I tick the check box and next time I start Firefox, it's unchecked. I tried all of the troubleshooting ideas I could find here and none of them worked. I tried refreshing. I tried safe mode. I even uninstalled Firefox and deleted the Mozilla folder in %appdata%. Reinstalling a fresh version of Firefox with no add-ons, no extensions and sync turned off still didn't fix the problem. To add to my woes, today I am unable to search from the Firefox start page. When I type a search term, the progress indicator just swirls away and nothing happens. The same goes if I type the search in the address bar or the search box in the new tab page. If I open up a Google page, the search works fine. There's obviously something on my system that is interfering with Firefox, but for the life of me, I don't know what it is. The only thing that comes to mind is my antivirus, Trend Micro, but disabling it didn't help. The issue with the passwords started a little over a week ago (at least, that's when I noticed it) and I only noticed the search problem today.
