One of the great features in the latest browsers (like Firefox for example) is the address bar which is able to guess what the user is typing or looking for. No matter what you type and how many mistakes you make. The address bar will always return with the correct web address, automatically redirecting you to the website you were presumibly looking for. If you prefer to see a complete list of search result, matching the keyword or the website you were typing in the address bar, here is a nice hack to apply.
- Open your Firefox.
- Type about:config in the address bar.
- Click the button “I’ll be careful. I promise!”
- In the filter field, type keyword.url
- Double click it.
- By default the value of such a stroing should be something like: about:neterror?e=query&u=
- If you want to display search result replace the above string with http://www.google.com/search?q=
- Click OK and restart the browser for the change to take effect.
