Nothing happened. All that is in my toolbar search dialog is a magnifying glass. I have gone so far as to remove Firefox from my computer and tried reinstalling - it still does the same thing. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.I wish I did know how to reproduce this problem, I'd be able to fix it then. 2. 3. Expected Results: I expect Google to be in my toolbar and I expect to add search engines. I can't do either and I suppose this is an unfixable bug??
The localstore.rdf file in your profile might be corrupted. Removing it with probably solve the problem. http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/edit#profile
I have exactly the same problem since upgrading to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/184.108.40.206 I am running xp professional i have also tried adding engines - but google as it a preinstalled version doesnt appear on the list, but additional options to add other engines also fails. strangly though google does appear in the search toolbar i run firefox in safe mode.... I tried the localstore.rdf fix as suggested - hasnt helped
