I used to open a new tab and in the URL bar type whatever I wanted to google search. I had some adware toolbar that screwed with some settings and now when I open a new tab there's a search page and when I start typing it goes into the webpage's search field instead of the address bar.
What I want is to press ctrl+t and type in what I want to google and press enter. Now I have to take my hands off the keyboard and use the mouse to select the URL bar at the top. How can I fix this?
If my question doesn't make sense feel free to say so and I'll upload screen shots. BTW I technically have Waterfox, not Firefox.
