I went into about:config and have the following:
browser.search.defaultenginename Google browser.search.official true browser.search.order.1 Google keyword.URL https://www.google.com/search?p=
And still, when I type in the search bar, it pulls up Time Warner Cable Road Runner search instead of Google. It looks like only if I have more than 1 word does it decide to use google -- maybe using only 1 word means I type a malformed URL? How can I fix this to use Google as a proper search engine?
