That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

Sorry, I'm just sure this question has been posted already, but after failing to find it with a BGG Forum search* I have to ask anyway.

I use Firefox's feature to right-click in any search box, and "Add a Keyword for this Search..." to make a quick searches a breeze. Open a Firefox window (or tab), hit Ctrl-L to highlight the location bar, and then just type "bgg Race for the Galaxy" to automatically go to Boardgamegeek with a search for that game. I have the same for ebay, for Amazon, etc. They all work, but a few months ago the one for BGG stopped working for search terms with spaces in them. In other words, I can still enter "bgg Dominion" and get what I want, but "bgg Dominion Intrigue" comes up empty (as does my RftG example).

Multi-word searches with spaces still work on those other sites, ebay and Amazon--the problem only exists on BGG. I've tried deleting the keyword search bookmark and re-establishing it, but that doesn't fix the problem. Any ideas?

* I have a tough time finding relevant discussions such as these in the BGG forums. Maybe I need to learn better ways of searching BGG, too.

Hey Mark --
That works for me. WinXP FF3.5.1.
Have you tried it on multiple computers?

Works fine. And F6 is a snappier quick key for location bar. But SmarterFox add-on makes this search pretty much obsolete imo.

Yeah, I have the same trouble on two different computers. But now I'm off to learn about SmarterFox
