    Is there any way to turn off shortcuts for an entire network?
    The current behavior for shortcuts makes it come up with an openDNS search page, and I'd prefer it to keep using the Google search/I'm feeling lucky.
    Thanks in advance

    Huh?

    If you set shortcuts, the shortcuts go where you point them. Irf you don't set any, they are "disabled".

    If your problem is typing a word into an address bar and you expect search results, try typing into the search bar instead.

    Oh, sorry,
    I guess what I'm talking about is the openDNS search page overriding the default behavior for the Firefox adress bar.
    Is there any way to disable that?

    And also, it's all browser configuration and not really OpenDNS related. The forum has many useful hints on how to configure browsers to get what you want. Just use the search function.

    That's the problem, Firefox is already set to use the default search, but the openDNS search page still pops up for me.
    Has anyone encountered this issue before?

    I think that's enough. But you must do it yourself now... :devil:

    Edit: "That's the problem, Firefox is already set to use the default search..."
    Ah, I think I understand now. I was not talking about the FireFox search function, but about the FORUM search function to look for the solutions regarding your FireFox issue.

    The one search is far nothing to do with the other search.
