Early this morning I searched for a particular game and found it.  Later
on I did a similar search with no result at all.  No dropdown with
possibilities, NOTHING.  Restarted FF, restarted X, rebooted the computer.

Imagine my joy to discover over 200 blank pages that I had to delete
individually.  Ran FF in safe mode.   Still, no search capability.
Chrome works fine.

I'd like to blame somebody, but I really don't know where to point the
gun :-(

First, run Fx with Add-ons disabled. If the problem still exists, try
creating a new profile (after saving your existing one) and see if the
problem still occurs.

"Safe mode" but I've added stuff via the .css and prefs files, as well
as changing a lot of preferences.

Report back with findings.

New profile, no alterations at all (it REALLY hurt, though!).  The
playstore worked properly, but Facebook still refuses to show some
videos.  The only one I've tried so far said "Something went wrong.
We're having trouble playing this video.  Learn more"  which gives
options:  (1) Restart your browser;  (2) update your browser;  or (3)
use a different browser.  Zuck should rot in hell.

It did suggest that I update libavcodec.  Something suppressed that
message before.  Hmmm.  The one I have is from 2012.

No ad blocker or anything else. Wired still won't show me articles unless I disable my adblocker. Stupid Wired. I can only assume that they don't understand linux, which should be humiliating for them.
