    1> I’m unable to see the new interface using this way. Though, javascript (as suggested by engadget) way is working for me.

    2> Using Fx 3.5.5

    3> I understand that the typing something in the addressbar and then hitting return key takes you to Google results by Fx defaults (Mozilla gets money for this default settings)

    4> I guess that once you have tried JavaScript way to see the new interface – cookies are set for the new interface. That may be a reason that you are able to get new interface. Please, clear the cookies and try again, and let me know if you still get it.

    Is something wrong with me??
