Previously, whenever I type something in Firefox addressbar and press enter, the search engine used is Google. Nowadays whenever I type something in the Firefox addressbar and pressed enter, the search engine used have changed to Microsoft’s Bing! I never recalled changing it so I did a search and found the following solution….
- Type about:config in Firefox’s address bar.
- In the Filter box, type keyword.
- You should find a few keyword entries. Make sure that keyword.enabled is set to true.
- Look for keyword.url and right click on it to modify. Copy this string value http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q= and enter it in the box.

Is anyone experiencing the same problem that I am having on this first day of 2008? Ran my favorite browser this morning ( Firefox 3 Beta 2 ) and I was having problems accessing sites that requires user id and passwords ( WordPress, Emails, etc ).
There wasn’t any problem when I try to access the said sites using Firefox Portable!
Please update me about this problem through your comments. Thank you.
Update: I would like to rectify the post I made above. It seems the problems occurs only on my office PC. I tried using Firefox 184.108.40.206 to login to WordPress on my home PC and it works fine.
