Check to see if you have the Ghostery extension installed. It appears to have recently added, by default, blocking of the Google search API. MDN uses this API for its search functionality. If you disable this block in that extension’s settings, searching MDN will work again.

  1. Well, having an ABP filter set to “.google.” has had that effect for me for a good long while, I’m guessing years. Along with “googleapis.com,” it turns rather a lot of websites into static or wholly blank pages, but of course that only affects such sites as allow themselves and their users to be controlled by Google (like MDN), so it’s no big loss.
