Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: firefox
The recent change in Karmic means that the functionality of using the
google search bar in Firefox is reduced. No longer can you click on the
"images" link at the top, etc etc.
Generally, when I Google for something, I'll type in the phrase in the
search box. Then, if I am looking for images/videos/whatever, I'll click
the corresponding link at the top of these. Because the system is now
using a custom google "Partner" search, these links do not show anymore,
thus reducing the flexibility.
I do not agree that the change that has been made is worthwhile. It adds
no extra functionality, and makes using the web more frustrating.
