Re: [R] R-2.1.0 search engine works with mozilla browser but not firefox

It works with Firefox 1.0.3 for me on Fedora Core 3.

Please consult the appropriate manual as linked from the search page: this is a configuration issue local to you. One irritating part of FC3's updates is that they do not (at least for me) copy the plugins across, so I had manually to fix up my Firefox 1.0.3 update yesterday. Sounds like your plugin is not set up correctly.
