    Default Firefox4 builtin keyword searches are gone?

    This used to work by default in previous versions of FF.

    imdb $movie
    wiki opensuse

    now they don't.

    My personal favorite was
    man $page
    sadly that's gone too.

    Here's how to fix it...
    Open about:config and search for keyword.URL - it should be blank.
    Double-click to edit and enter
    Code:
    http://google.com/search?btnI=1&q=
    withOUT the quotes. (This is the code at Google to press the I'm Feeling Lucky button)

    This will restore the previous Firefox keyword search behavior.
    No restart necessary.

    Enjoy.

    "withOUT the quotes." was correct until I put code tags around the string.
    Sorry.

    Enjoy.
