Hello, ellzeena!

Starting in Firefox 34, you can use one of these methods to change you default search engine:
Note: The following may not apply to localized versions of Firefox.

  • Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose Options on Windows or Preferences on Mac or Linux, then select the Search settings panel.
  • Click on the magnifying glass icon in the Search bar, then click on Change Search Settings, as shown here:
search prefs 34

In the Search settings panel that opens, select a different search engine from the drop-down menu (see this screenshot).

For more information, see the article Search with the Firefox address bar.

Let us know if this answers your questions. If you have any other questions, we are happy to help.
