In the little white search box, top right hand side, with the drop down list of search engines, whatever I type into it there is no response at all for any search engine. The main Google search box in the centre of screen still works. Any ideas please?.

That glitch was known about at beginning of this year and has been fixed in latest version. Or it could be one of your add-ons causing the problem.

Try updating to latest version and if that doesn't fix it, try 'Restart with add-ons disabled' (on the Help menu)

Thanks lotvic, checked that I had latest version, did uninstall, reinstall, ran CCleaner, result was no change, still not responding. Then reset Firefox which did the trick. Thanks again.

Done that now Jock1e --- I didn't know that -- I live and sometimes I learn. Thanks. Good to get help on here and to find that there are still samaritans around.
