Add search engines to Firefox for iOS

Does your screen look different? You might be on an old version of Firefox. Get the new version from the App Store!

While popular search engines are already built into Firefox, this update gives you more choices. You can now add search engines from your favorite websites (for example, shopping, video or news sites).

Here's how to do it:

  1. Tap the search box on the website you want to add. (We're using Wikipedia for this example, but these steps apply to many other websites.)
  2. Tap the add search engine add search icon ios 5 icon that appears above the keyboard.
    add custom search ios 5

The next time you enter a search, your new search engine appears among your quick search choices. You can even make it your default search engine.
