Getting a (very long) “Waiting for www.google.com” message in your status bar when doing a Google search in Firefox?
A few suggestions on how to resolve:
1. In your address bar, type “about:config” and hit enter
Under Preference Name: look for Keyword.url
double click keyword.url and paste: google.com/search?&q=
2. For Mac users:
Disable IPv6 in both Firefox and Mac network preferences:
a) Mac: System Preferences > Network > (Connection – e.g Airport) > Advanced > TCP/IP > Configure IPv6 -> Off
b) Firefox: type “about:config” in address bar. Filter with ipv6. Double-click network.dns.disableIPv6 so that Value -> true.
Restart your Mac.
