Forum Response - Changing the default search engine

Hello,

You can choose from different search providers such as Google, Yahoo or Bing when you search the Internet using Firefox. For more information, see the article Use the Search bar in Firefox.

If you want to change the default search engine that Firefox uses, use one of these methods:

  • Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose either Options (on Windows) or Preferences (on Mac or Linux), then select the Search settings panel.
  • Click on the magnifying glass icon in the Search bar, then click on Change Search Settings, as shown here:
search prefs 34

In the Search settings panel that opens, select a different search engine from the drop-down menu:
