User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0
Build ID: 20180427210249

Steps to reproduce:

There is some cretical bugs in current nightly build (09.05.2018).

If you type address of new web-site into address bar and then push "Enter", there is no reaction. Firefox Nightly does not attempt to download web-page from entered address.

And simultaneously, Firefox shows no rearch engines in search bar, which is in right side from address bar.

I am sure that it is not related with my profile, because I made Firefox Refreshment, then launch Nithtly with new file, then reinstall Nithly with Geek Uninstaller.

And finally I installed stable version of Firefox (59.0.3).

I don't remember current Version branch of Nithtly (09.05.2018), therefore version number which I point out in this request "61 branch" could be mistaken. Please check version of today Nightly.

There is no screenshots or videos, because I am happy that stable version of Firefox, which I just installed, works fine and I don't want to perform procedures again.

I cannot reproduce it. I do not know anything that landed in necko recently that could cause this. This may be address bar issue. Let's ask there.

Component: Untriaged → Address Bar
I've seen that behavior when we broken 52 ESR for Italian (bug 1445278). There were no XML files in the build.

A change that centralizes the search default (bug 1352539) just landed, no clue if that could be related.

@alexandr
Was that an English build, or a different language?
Flags: needinfo?(buhler.av)
Looks like this affects only localized builds. An user on a Russian support forum have posted following workaround for this bug: about:config -> change "browser.search.countryCode" to "EN" and change "browser.search.region" to "EN".

EN is an invalid code for both region and countryCode.

I just installed the Russian nightly and search is working fine for me and defaulting correctly. 

I even changed my codes to RU and readded search and everything works.

What I need is to know what browser.search.countryCode and region were before they changed.

And if someone could look on the console to see if there is an error.

Hm, I can not reproduce it with new profile, but I can reproduce it with my current profile:
1) Download http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central-l10n/firefox-62.0a1.ru.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
2) Start browser with not-new profile
3) Open about:preferences
4) In about:preferences you can not select "Search" pane with mouse click. In browser console there are following messages:

Interesting. Would you be willing to send me your prefs.js (I just need the browser.search.* sections) and the file search.json.mozlz4?

That would help me debug this. I don't know what could be going wrong here.

I use Russian x64 build.

I performed the following steps to fix problem with my Firefox:

1. I performed profile refreshment https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings . It gives no effect.
2. I tried to backup profile and perform couple of cycles of uninstallation/installation Nightly with CrystalIdea Uninstall Tool and Geek Uninstaller. It gives no effect.
3. I tried to clean system with Auslogics BoostSpeed, Reg Organizer, CCleaner, and then installation of Nightly. It gives no effect.
4. Finally I download installer of stable Firefox version. After launching it detects some traces of previous Firefox installations, performs uninstallation, and finally install Stable version of Firefox. And only after launching this stable Firefox installation I recognize that address bar loads web-sites and search bar has list of search engines.

I am really apologize, that I did not save Nightly Installation with bugs, because I am afraid that my attempts to fix problem erase evidence, which is responsible for bug.

It was really old Firefox profile and Nightly installation with a lot of everyday update cycles. I had another bug Bug 1368974 . But it was finally fixed.

You should design special tool for users. If user detects bug, he launches special utility, which collect all parameters of firefox and system itself. After that user can send report to developers and perform reinstallation/refreshment procedures with sureness, that all bug evidences are collected.


There is file uninstall.log in folder C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall 

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XwlbR9R7jBt_vGviW1m-wtGGly59TWdo

And install log in folder C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1aBfAB9Vum1JOBIYlf31wsF03u-2WYuTe


New messages arrived in the meantime with writing of this message by me. I will read them and make updates.

Does installer of stable Firefox collects any install/uninstall logs in other places? Where I can find it and forward to you?

I will try to plug initial, not refreshed profile into my current firefox. It it will shows bug, I will report to you.

Looks like your mail provider has blocked my message, cause "its content presents a potential 552-5.7.0 security issue". I've put these files in archive on https://yadi.sk/d/14zYyxV63VdD4A

Note that I'm aware of. In case, the issue is within the profile, and it's not removed by uninstalling.

At this point, I don't think your profile is useful, because the data was already "fixed" by installing Release.

zhCN locale have the same problem.
Given the patch, I'd expect the following locales to have the issue: be, kk, ru, tr, zh-CN.
I am using firefox nightly 62.0a1 (2018-05-10) (64 bit)

duckduckgo as default search engine and my locale is 'tr'

I have the same issue

Wait wait wait, is this really only a problem related to search engines?  Typing a URL and hitting enter doesn't have anything to do with search, right?  There may be multiple problems here.  We've had problems recently with the urlbar not responding to enter keypresses that didn't have anything to do with search.

Mike, can you reproduce this part of the bug?

Based on experience from bug 1445278: empty list of searchplugins makes the browser basically unusable. Not only the address bar is completely broken, even the context menu was acting strange.
Hello
I have to add this information

as well as the search from address bar issue
I have a problem with search tab in settings. 

When I click search on settings it gets highlighted but options doesn't change.

i have reproduced the bug and it is definitely a search bug. And the folks that are seeing it are exactly the ones I would expect based on their location. 

If anyone besides adw wants to review the patch, feel free so it goes in faster.

I am using nightly zh_CN 62.0a1 (2018-05-09) (64-bit) on Arch Linux x86_64 and macOS 10.13.3 on a MacBook Air, both builds have the following problems.

1. typing text into address bar and hit enter gives no response, and the 'search suggestion' list didn't show up;
2. typing text into search bar has the same behavior as above;
3. the search engine selector menu lists no search engines;
4. in Preferences, clicking the 'Search' section didn't do anything;
5. BUT, you can open search preference by directly going to 'about:preferences#search', and there is no search engine in the list at all;
6. ALSO, in the address bar, you can actually go to websites by completing the URL scheme, e.g. use 'https://www.google.com' or 'mailto:abc@example.org' or 'steam://...' will open the website or corresponding program.

Both 'browser.search.countryCode' and 'browser.search.region' are "CN".

By this far, I've tried several methods...

1. replace zh_CN nightly with the same version of en_US nightly. This gives back the normal behavior, and I checked that search countryCode and region are still "CN";

2. fully quit nightly and open Firefox stable 60.0, this also gives normal behavior;

3. quit Firefox stable, install and open zh_CN nightly (the same version used above), the address bar and search bar malfunctions again.

I have all this problems. Also can't google search some text using pop up window.
I'm from Russia.
Hopefully this will land this morning (CET time) in mozilla-central, and will be available before the end of the day in the Nightly update.
