The link does bring you to this page, but to the post where I give the Google add-on link. Just go ahead and install it - it should work with TB 45.

Zenos, are you sure you do not have the Google Search add-on installed. Googe search is not a choice in the normal install. At least not mine.

Wesgas, I know you said you are not a geek but try and find the caps lock and turn it off.

I ALWAYS USE HIGH CASE SO I CAN READ WHAT I AM WRITING. THANK YOU. I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT A GOOGLE ADD-ON. WHAT I HAVE SEEN WAS FROM 2012 AND PRIOR VERSIONS OF TB. NOTHING FOR WIN 10 OS.

I haven't been able to make the duckduckgo search engine work, despite following the advice in that same link that sfhowes gave us.

However I do have a Google.xml file in my searchplugins folder, so that will be why I have Google search. I do not have the Google Search add-on. (Much as I dislike letting Google own too much of my life, the only other search I had that seems to work is Bing and I absolutely refuse to have anything to do with that.)

So we need a brave soul to lead WesGas through the creation of a searchplugins folder and the addition of a google.xml file.

Wes, please try increasing your display font size. Block capitals are hard work for the rest of us.

The Google Search add-on certainly works, but it does so by providing its own searchplugins folder. If you add any other search plugin xml file to that folder, it can also be added into Thunderbird. So, glee unbounded, I can now use duckduckgo as the default search in Thunderbird. This is a purely hyopthetical win, since I can't remember ever wanting or trying to launch an internet search from Thunderbird.

sfhowes' link doesn't work for me because there is no list of search engines from which to pick an alternative. Indeed, the mention of a heart for favourite suggests to me a long-gone configuration where searches appeared in a vertical bar at the side of the Thunderbird window.

Wes, just install the addon.

If the duck.co instructions don't work (because TB no longer displays search results in a TB tab - it launches the default browser), the instructions I posted here should work. Another post.

No one else likes reading what you write. So consider it a formal warning. Turn it off or I will assist you in doing so by banning you.

The "works with" guidance is usually ignored, at least for recent versions of Thunderbird and add-ons. I have this particular add-on working, as-is, with no tweaks, in TB 51.0b2.

Even when an add-on is refused, it's usually possible to tweak it to make it lie about its compatibility. In some respects this is on a par with winding back the odometer on a used vehicle, but it gets the job done.
