Firefox comes with a number of available search engines by default. You can add or remove the search engines that Firefox uses in just a few clicks.

Add a search engine

Many websites offer search engines that you can add to Firefox. This allows you to search with that website's search engine, directly from your Firefox address bar or Search bar.

  1. To add a specific engine, visit the website for your desired search engine. (We'll use youtube.com as an example.)
  2. Click the magnifying glass on the Search bar addsearch 40 , then click Add "YouTube".
