Which Search Enigne do you configured ? Have you tried to reset the search Engine ? (edit\preferences\Navigator\Internet Search BTW: You can also enter a search string and use the arrow up key + Return
At suggestion of matti-at-mversen.de, I changed the search preference from ASK JEEVES to GOOGLE and the search on location bar entry in the drop down line works as expected. Not sure if this is a defect with Mozilla 1.7b or the way it interacts with ASK JEEVES.
And if you switch back ? My "Ask Jeeves" search works as expected...
When switching back to ASK JEEVES the search function works properly in the drop down location bar.
This can happen if you upgrade, resetting the engine should always fix that
