Enable or disable search engines on Firefox for iOS

While Firefox lets you set a default search engine, its quick search feature also lets you switch between different search engines on your list as you browse.

Disable search engines you don't need or reactivate them if you change your mind. Here's how to do it:

  1. Tap the menu button at the bottom of the screen (the menu will be at the top right if you're using an iPad):

  2. Tap Settings in the menu panel.
  3. Tap Search in the Firefox Settings screen.
  4. Tap the switch next to each search engine to turn it off switchoffios or on switchonios .

Your search engines will appear at the bottom of the screen when you search.
