Firefox and Google Search
I had a little problem with my firefox google search bar, but it is nothing serious. I recently edited the search engine that it uses for default and the Google search bar so that you could use search preferences on google w/o a cookie. But after I did this, whnever I would use the google search bar it would add a "?=" (w/o quotes) to the beginning of any search term i put in. This would only happen once it got to the google and it would not effect the search because i dont believe taht google uses "?=" as part of its search anyway. But I was just wondering why it did this, as it would not do this if i put the same search term in the address bar (I also redirected that so it didnt do an Im feeling lucky search everytime).
this is my google.src file:
The only three lines I edited are in bold and as the first two are pretty obvious as to why I edited and the second one because it had a 'q' inside of the " " and previously it would also add a q to the search (which would screw up the search results) so I took it out.

P.S. sorry if this is vague as I am almost sure i missed a lot of points that seemed trivial to me but might actually be of importance.
