Limit search to only use words provided

Veröffentlicht

I want to search for information on a specific product Steca sewing machine. Unfortunately Firefox displays every permutation of Singer sewing machine and I've spent hours trawling for the information I'm looking for, without success. Google (yuck, need to wash my mouth out) has a feature which limits the search to only search on the search criteria I request eg only to show websites/pages that have the word Steca in them. How can i do this on Firefox?

I really like Firefox although it is heavily skewed to USA - pity as I live in Europe, my preferences and location are set to Europe and I would prefer to see fewer USA websites and pages and more from Europe.

No problem. It's a little search engine trick that a lot of people don't know about. Glad I could help.

It would depend on what search engine you are using in Firefox. Firefox doesn't actually handle any searching, it just loads you into the search engine that you have specified in your settings.

In most cases, you can get the behaviour that you are looking for simply by encasing the search time in quotes.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Wesley for super speedy response. It hadn't occurred to me to use parentheses (quotation marks) but that worked brilliantly. Thank you.
