MSN Search's Deskbar and Firefox not always opening
I have been using MSN's Desktop Search and Firefox as my deafult browser. However I have been irritated that sometimes my search was not being opened in Firefox. I did some spelunking and found that it was related to searching for more than one item at a time. For example searching for 'foo' would work but 'foo bar' would not. So I changed the Other search service text from http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=$w to http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q="$w" Note that i placed double quotes around the $w parameter that contains the search text. It now works great.
