I just upgraded to FF 4, and I noticed that I no longer get google results (or google ‘i feel lucky’ results) when I type something in my address bar that isn’t a full web address. Like I might type just sluggy and that would go straight to sluggy.com. I basically use my address bar as an extra search bar, and have forever, so it’s a hard habit to break.
But it’s an easy fix to get it back to that functionality.
Just type about:config in your address bar.
It will give you an ‘are you sure’ warning. Say you are sure.
Then find Keyword.URL, and double click on it.
Set it to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=
if you just want it to return google results.
Set it to
if you want it to try to go to the most likely site.
