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.Code:# Mozilla/Google plug-in by email@example.com <search name="Google" description="Google Search" method="GET" action="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&q=+" update="http://www.google.com/mozilla/google.src" updateCheckDays=10000000 queryEncoding="utf-8" queryCharset="utf-8" > <input name=" " user> <inputnext name="start" factor="10"> <inputprev name="start" factor="10"> <input name="ie" value="utf-8"> <input name="oe" value="utf-8"> <interpret browserResultType="result" charset = "UTF-8" resultListStart="<!--a-->" resultListEnd="<!--z-->" resultItemStart="<!--m-->" resultItemEnd="<!--n-->" > </search>
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.
