Quick search from address bar no longer works

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of FF2.0. I really liked the quick search
function, where you type some words in the address bar, and get
redirected to the first Google link. This doesn’t seem to work any
more. If I enter only one word, it tries to go to www.<word>.com or
some other ending. If I enter more than one word I get the message ‘URL
invalid, could not be loaded’.

Is there some preference/about:config entry I should switch on in order
for this to work again?

Cheers, H.
