Sounds like autocomplete is not working.

I was wondering if anyone can help me out. I use Firefox and love it. Lately a feature in Google (my default homepage) stopped working and I don't know where to get it back... Whenever I typed anything in the Google box Google guesses and suggests searches with the number of search results for each guess on the same line at the far right. Say I want to type "beyond". Once I type "be" Google lists (in a sort of dropdown menu) "bee" with the number of search results for that in a light green color next to it, and on the next line there's say "beethoven", and so forth. Once I get to say "beyon", Google goes on to suggest "beyonce", then on the line below it "beyonce bio", then "beyonce pics", and so forth. All of a sudden this feature disappeared... I suspect the DSL speed may have something to do with it because it always took longer when the Net was slow, but now even when it's fast the option doesn't show up. I really really want this option... I would really appreciate your help on this. Thanks a million!
