Just last week I learned the old default feature for typing in a word in the address bar had changed.  I liked the old system better where if I typed in the name of a store it just sent me to that store's website than the new default which sends me to a search results page. I learned how to change this by going to about:config and changing the keyword.url value.  I learned what the old default was and set the value to that.  However, it doesn't save.  I find that if I close Firefox it goes back to the new defaults instead of the one I overrode it with.  I am not sure why it won't save but I would like the value that I place in keyword.url to stay.
