    I made a minor edit to add Firefox to the search summary. The old summary was:

    Access your favorite search engines, including Yahoo, Google and DuckDuckGo, directly on the Search bar.  Add, remove and change search engines within seconds.
    

    I changed it to:

    Firefox has a built-in Search bar where you can access your favorite search engines like Yahoo, Bing and Google.  Easily add, remove, and change search engines. 
    

    Also, the current title of this article is: Search bar - add, change and manage search engines on Firefox

    It appears in Google Bing and Yahoo search results as Search bar - add, change and manage search engines on ...

    I think this article should be renamed so that "Firefox" appears in search engine results. My suggestion is to change the title to something like: Use the Search Bar in Firefox and manage search settings Use the Search Bar in Firefox and manage search engines

    Something else to consider: When you go to the Search panel in Firefox Options, the Help link now takes you to this article. This was fixed in bug 1102398. Related discussion: /forums/knowledge-base-articles/710900 New Search panel in Firefox 34 Options - Help link goes to 404

    In other words, this article now describes the options available in the Firefox Search panel, not just the Search Bar itself.

    Sounds correct to me, can you make the edit ?

    I made another edit to change the title to Use the Search bar in Firefox and manage search engines

    (Search Bar to Search bar. No change in the slug).

    For the record, this article has been renamed again, from "Use the Search bar in Firefox and manage search engines" to Use the Search bar in Firefox. It's also been shortened, with new articles created (Change your default search settings in Firefox and Add or remove a search engine in Firefox) for the removed content (see /kb/use-search-bar-firefox/history). Background here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-or-remove-search-engine-firefox/discuss/6177

    This article is still an in-product link from the Search panel "Help" link in Firefox options/preferences.
