Yesterday I installed Ask Ubuntu lens in unity but when I open it dash opens, but I never get any search result.

Dash always stays empty even searching for "firefox".

Right clicking on the lens in the launcher only gives me the option Ask Ubuntu, nothing more. What can be the problem?

For 12.10: It looks like disabling the Amazon shopping results disables all lenses that use Online information. I got this working after enabling it the 'online search results' at 'System Settings'>'Privacy' – Elias Oct 23 '12 at 21:28
