How to Firefox Custom search engine for the address bar browser.search.default.url


By default, if you type in a phrase that is not a web address into the address bar, Firefox sends the query to Google for a web search. You can change this so that it uses a different search engine if you prefer.

For Windows Live search:
http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=

For a Yahoo search:
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=

To go back to the default:
http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

keyword.URL

Change to any of the following above to use a different search engine.

You can also check out the Mozilla page for a complete list of configurations that you can change with descriptions at about:config wiki page. Any other about:config changes that you like? Post a comment!
