I've defined a keyword bookmark in Firefox 3.6 (running on Windows Vista).

enter image description here

It's the same location as another one with a different keyword which works fine:

If I type google test it takes me to http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=test, but if I type g test it takes me to the first result from I'm feeling lucky as if there was no bookmark keyword there at all.

Any ideas?


Check if you don't have another bookmark with the same keyword, which would be taken before this one.

Or maybe it's simply reserved by Firefox for this keyword. (according to comment, it's not reserved)

    It's not reserved, I use 'g' for google. – Blorgbeard Apr 26 '10 at 10:07
  • Thanks a bunch, I ended up having a second bookmark for Google set to the keyword "g", only this one wasn't a search. I removed the keyword and it works again. – MiffTheFox Apr 26 '10 at 12:48
