Search the Web quickly with Firefox's convenient, built-in Search bar. Control your search options easily by adding, removing and switching search engines in just a few clicks.

Using the Search bar

Enter search into the Search bar at the top of the browser or on the New Tab page. Firefox will take you to the search results page for the search engine that's currently selected.

Switching search engines

The icon next to the search field tells you which search engine is currently active. This is Google by default but you can change it at any time.

  • From the toolbar: Click on the arrow next to the icon and select your preferred search engine from the list:
Search Bar - Win3 Fx8 Search Bar - Lin3 Search2 29 - Win Search2 29 - Mac Search2 29 - Lin switch search 33
  • From the new tab page: Click on the logo and select your preferred search engine from the list:
change search tab 31 search new page 33
Note: Any changes you make to one of the search bars will also apply to the other one.

Firefox comes with the following search engines by default.

  • Google for searching the web via Google
    Note: The default Google search is encrypted to prevent eavesdropping.
  • Yahoo for searching the web via Yahoo
  • Bing for searching the web via Microsoft Bing
  • Amazon.com for searching for products on the Amazon.com retail website
  • DuckDuckGo is a great choice for users who don't want to be tracked when they search
  • eBay for looking up items for sale or auction at eBay
  • Twitter for searching people on Twitter
  • Wikipedia (en) for searching the English Wikipedia free online encyclopedia
Note: The new search engine you select will remain active until you change it again.

Add a search engine from a website

Some websites offer search engines that you can add to your Firefox Search bar. This allows you to search that specific website directly from your Search bar.

  1. To add the site-specific engine, visit the website that has your desired search engine. (We'll use youtube.com as an example.)
  2. Open the search engine list and select Add "YouTube Video Search". Firefox will add it to your list and make it the active search engine.

Note: The Mycroft Project gives you access to hundreds of different search engines all in one place. For example, this page lets you add any of the language specific Google search engines (like google.ca, google.ch or google.fr).

Add a search engine through the search engines manager

In the search engines manager, you can add new search engines that have been released for use with Firefox. Perform the following steps on the Search bar on the toolbar or on the new tab page.

  1. Click on the search engine icon and select Manage Search Engines....
  2. To add a search engine, click Get more search engines... to launch the Mozilla Add-ons Search Tools page.
  3. To add one of the displayed search engines, click the Add to Firefox button. The Add Search Engine dialog is displayed.
  4. To begin using the search engine immediately after you add it, put a check in the box next to Make this the current search engine.
  5. To add the selected search engine, click Add.
  6. The search engine is now available through the search engines list in the Search bar.

Remove a search engine

You can remove search engines you don't need by performing the following steps on the Search bar on the toolbar or on the new tab page.

  1. Click the search engine icon and select Manage Search Engines..., to open the search engines manager.
  2. To remove a search engine, select it from the list, and click Remove.

If you accidentally delete a default search engine, click Restore Defaults to recover the default search engines.

  • If you accidentally delete a search engine that you installed, you must re-install it.

Re-order search engines

  1. Click the search engine icon and select Manage Search Engines..., to open the search engines manager.
