How to set default search engine in Firefox for Android?


Hi. I want to set a non-Google search engine as the default in Firefox on Android. I have installed the search engine as an add-on and it is working fine, but I would like to use it as the default search, rather than having to select it each time.

Couldn't find the answer on here or anywhere else.

Please note this only relates to Android.
