Firefox 13 new homepage search - help!

Post by Condorman »

I have Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon 64 bit installed. Today I got the update for Firefox, taking it to version 13. I love the new homepage, and it seems much faster to me, but for some reason the search bar in the middle of the screen doesn't work. No matter what I type into it, when I either press enter or click "search", nothing happens.

What did I miss? Cheers all. :)

Same problem here ! I think it has something to do with the default search engine . Alse the new tabs feature is a little buggy . The picture for each tab does not always show .

Ah, at least I'm not on my own in this! I'm sure they'll come up with something to sort this out, or maybe a skilful user will have a simple workaround for us. I tried looking in about:config, but I wouldn't really know which parameter to adjust to fix this.
