Can't find google in Firefox add-ons

Posted

Hello, yesterday I tried to install an update on my computer that caused the computer to shut down. When the computer restarted my settings in firefox had changed (although I don't think Firefox updated or anything). My search engine options are now just Bing, Amazon, and Ebay. I know how to add more search engines. I went to the preferences page->search-> find more search engines. But when the list of available search engines comes up, google is missing. There's search google images, google translate, every other country's google you can imagine, but default US Google is not there. Where did it go? Why can't I find it?

Chosen solution

To reset the search engines, remove these files in the Firefox profile folder; search.json + search-metadata.json + search.sqlite + search.json.mozlz4

search.json.mozlz4 ==only== (v45+)

New files are created when needed.
