Enable search suggestions in Firefox for Linux Mint

Unfortunately, 'out-of-the-box' Firefox under Linux Mint doesn't show suggestions when you type in search box.

How to fix:

  • download Firefox from mozilla.org
  • find google.xml in archive (firefox/browser/searchplugins)
  • copy this file to local firefox setting directory (in my case it was ~/.mozilla/firefox/mwad0hks.default/searchplugins)
  • restart browser
  • enable 'Provide search suggestions' box in search settings
