Canonical is the company that produces Ubuntu as you are using a third-party build of Firefox from Ubuntu based on useragent in your More System Details and not Firefox from www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

Perhaps the Search page or search engine you are using is a modified one.

You can change your search engines as there are some at https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/extensions/search-tools/ and much more at https://mycroftproject.com/
