[fedora-india] Searching Google using Firefox Awesome Bar

Hi all,

I'm facing an issue with the search feature of the Firefox awesome bar. 
Typing text on the awesome bar shows me the bookmarked and visited 
pages, but submitting the text on the bar does not shows up the google 
results [google is the search engine defined against 'keyword:URL'], 
instead it tries to load the page using the search text as the domain name.
e.g. as if i'm typing in "fedora" in the bar and submitting the same, i 
was expecting the "i'm feeling lucky" feature of google to come to my 
rescue and open up the "http://fedoraproject.org/" but ironically 
firefox opens up a page with URL "http://fedora/" and the content from 
UnitedDomains probably a page from the DNS [not very clear about 
this].Attached is the screenshot of the same page.

It was working fine as i remember a recent copying over of the profile 
seems to have corrupted some thing. Is there any solution to the problem.
Tips and tricks that i have tried till time to resolve the issue  :
1. Removing firefox using YUM and deleting the profile folder from the 
home directory.
2. Changing the advanced settings [about:config] of Firefox for the 
values of search engine against 'keyword:URL'

Any help is welcome.
