Why is the address bar not allowing search anymore?

I have always searched on Firefox by just typing what I want into the address bar. It would bring up the Google results automatically. It just suddenly stopped working-like I did it while searching for one thing and ten minutes later opened a different tab and it didn't work anymore. When I do try to search from the address bar the screen says "Unable to Connect...Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 'search term'. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

Did you try to close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer?

Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.
*Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
*Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

You can consider to use a keyword search and add a keyword to the Google search engine via "Manage Search Engines" in the search bar search engine menu.
