How do I remove bundled search engines?

Posted

I can't remove or disable search engines associated with companies that commit grave human rights offenses through the Settings menu on Firefox for Android. What are my other options? Firefox has become literally offensive. Alternately, what are some free open source browsers that don't force these on me?

Sorry to read that you're strongly against the companies associated with the providers of our pre-bundled search engines. There is currently no way to disable each individually but we are planning and investigating into that for a future release. In the meantime, if you don't like the provider, don't search with it.

So tell me, how do I avoid searching/autosuggestions from Yahoo, Bing et. al. when there's no way to remove these providers?
