Adding Search Engine returns "Failed | Please fill all fields correctly"
Hello, I am trying to add the URL https://searx.org/search?q=yellow (omitting: &language=en-US&time_range=None&safesearch=0&categories=science) as my default search engine (when I type in the address bar of a new Firefox tab).
I have tried every combination of removing characters from the search (https://searx.org/search?q= and all the way to just searx.org) in Firefox iOS -> Settings -> Search -> Add Search Engine, I get the response, "Failed Please fill all fields correctly." It only gives two fields: 1) Title (searx) and 2) URL (and I filled many different ways as stated above).
Trying to do this on my Linux Mint desktop on Firefox too and am having even less luck! Seems like I don't even have the option to change my default search engine, or even my New Tabs (only if I open a New Window does it open with https://searx.org). New Tabs is only giving me the option for the MFirefox front page or a blank page (both that automatically search Google from the address bar).
- Even the option of adding a shortcut like "s" to search "searx.org" when I type a query in the address bar is not up for grabs in my Linux issue.
Anyways, if you can help with any of these, that would be great. I couldn't find anyone having issues with adding a search engine to Firefox with similar issues as to mine (I never had crashing issues).
P.S. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/search-searx/ MAY be a valid option, but the fact only 400 people have downloaded it and use it which is very phishy if you ask me. Sure, searx is not too popular, but I am not equipped to test random app (extensions) I find on the Internet. Trying to see if they are connected to searx at all, and I don't personally have the developer knowledge to tell if this is a trustworthy member of the searx community.
