I have Firefox 2.0.0.13.
about a month ago I installed AOL AIM and now when I type a key word in to the address bar of firefox, it searches with AIM. I changed the the about:config page back to what it was beforehand, however nothing happend. Is there something that I'm missing.

Type about:config in Firefox location bar and press Enter
Type keyword in Filter textbox
Double-click on "keyword.URL" and change the value to:

http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

and if that doesnt work try:

http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky&q=

if you want to just go to the first page returned for the search

edit- if you type "browser.search" into the filter you will also find some settings that may need to be changed like "browser.search.defaultenginename" , "browser.search.defaulturl"
