google search in address url bar in mozilla Firefox

Like ChromeBrowser of google, Firefox has also integrated google (and any other search engines and that’s configurable) search in their urlbar commonly referred as address bar. Now recently all my firefox settings were destroyed thanks to a awry installation of Pearltrees. I found my urlbar search feature no longer works. Here is how i restored it.

1. i went to the urlbar and typed about:config.. confirmed my sanity and there’s a nice page full of many options (keys and values)

2. i searched for keyword.URL key. Double clicked it to change the value tohttp://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=

3. i searched for keyword.enable key and made the value TRUE
