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 the Web on Firefox.
