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.
