Hi.. I just upgraded my firebird and lost my settings in "about:config"

In my previous installation I had edited the browser.default.searchurl so I didn't have to use "I'm feeling lucky" . If I wrote something that didn't look like a URL google took care of it and Firebird displayed the SEACH RESULTS. I've tried every diffrent possible setting for that row.. firebird still thinks that I'm feeling lucky =(

What is the correct line for browser.defailt.searchurl to get the search results, not the "I'm feeling lucky" result? I've tried and none work =(

put this in your user.js or change it via about:config

Code: Select all
// Change to normal Google search:
user_pref("keyword.URL", "");

This does not work for me either. Neither user.js nor about:config makes any difference to Firefox's behaviour, it still loads up the first result. I have also tested this exiting Firefox and confirming it is not on the process list before restarting it. FWIW I'm running Win2k SP4
