Remove @keyword search for Google/Bing/Amazon etc

Veröffentlicht

I am trying to remove the some default search engines from Firefox. I can remove them in settings yet if I type @ then a number of search engines I don't want including Bing Google and Amazon are still there. I think I have found the json that makes them visible:

   resource://search-extensions/list.json

Which contains:

"default": {

   "searchDefault": "Google",
   "searchOrder": ["Google", "Bing"],
   "visibleDefaultEngines": [
     "google", "amazondotcom", "bing", "ddg", "ebay", "twitter", "wikipedia"
   ]
 }

Is this file in my profile? Can it be edited to remove the @keyword searches. If not, is there another way to get rid of them?

List.json stores the default search engine for each locale.

The map of ENGINE_ALIASES is hard coded in this file:

Only a few search engines are included and I'm not aware of a way to modify this list.

So in conclusion Firefox has @bing and @google hardcoded? This seems a huge backwards step compared to being able to add and remove search engines in the search bar. Why would anyone even consider that this might possibly be a vaguely acceptable idea?

In Firefox 69 and later, the @ alias for a search engine will not show up if you've removed that engine from the one-click search engine preferences - so if you update it will work better.

We also have bug on file for adding more options here.
