all the search engine options offered by firefox are now very censored, how can I add an alternative search engine such as gibiru.com to the search bar?

Most if not all the search engines offered for addition to firefox are now highly censored. How can I add an alternative search engine such as gibiru.com to the search bar?

What do you mean "Censored"?

You can add or remove search engines easily, Add or remove a search engine in Firefox

Many websites that present alternative points of view are either completely censored from Google, Yahoo, DDG, etc., or are buried so deeply in the results that no one will ever see them. Take for example, the website http://vidainstitute.org. This is a website containing scientific theories and articles that has much content and has been on the web for several years. It has no links to porno or piracy or anything that should be of concern to anyone. Just as an example, one of the articles on the website is entitled "Universal Lattice Theory". In Google and other search engines offered in Firefox, this article is either completely censored or very deeply buried in the results. However, when I do the same search for Universal Lattice Theory" on Yandex.com, it comes up first on the list. If I do the same search on gibiru.com, it comes up fifth. Apparently there is some kind of conspiracy to eliminate anything that is contrary to mainstream views, or views that influential people would like to be mainstream views. This is crushing the internet.

P.S. I can add Yandex, but I cannot add gibiru, because no add icon appears on the search magnifying glass.

Hi, there is instructions in the list at the very top of the page text http://gibiru.com/ and it will install a Toolbar.

If you do not want a Toolbar there is these ways : 2) http://gibiru.com/ unless go to the site and bookmark it, 3) drag from the Address Bar to the Bookmark Toolbar for easy access or 4) make it your home page or have it 5) open in a 2nd tab when you open Firefox.

So those are your choices.

Still trying to find info for adding it to the list

The page also suggests getting this add-on : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/reload-skip-cache-button/
