It used to be when you went to "Find more search engines", the list was only search engines. Not now. is there any way to bring up a list of just search engines. For instance, I'd like to add Reddit, but the only thing I can come up with it a Reddit search engine addon.

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?

Hi there,

I'd like to use ecosia and support the cause. Though I'm getting the message that an ad blocker is active. I'm using AdGuard and the ecosia page is whitelisted. Could any other of the standard addons cause this?

Sadly ecosia didn't reply to my inquity, sad that they don't seem to be much interested...

How not to cycle in the search bar using keyboard shortcut

Earlier, I focused the search bar with ctrl+k, type the researched words, and used ctrl+up/down arrows to select the search engine. Let's say I wanted to use the first search engine: I had to press ctrl+up arrow until I select the first search engine. Pressing again ctrl+up arrow did not change the search engine.

This was useful because to select quickly the first search engine I didn't have to focus and read the search engine field: I just had to see when the search engine field didn't change upon subsequent ctrl+up arrow key stroke. (The same happened with the last search engine using ctrl+down arrow)

Now, if the first search engine is selected, pressing ctrl+up arrow select the last search engine, so I cannot quickly select the first (or last) search engine without focusing on the search field.

Is there a way, apart from adding a keyword to a search engine, for quickly selecting a specific search engine in the search bar?

I recently made Firefox my default browser and in the search bar or the address bar, matters not, any topic typed in renders a result of "error. " To locate anything, I have to resort to either Safari or Google within their browsers. I like the Firefox browser but with this kind of glitch I may have made a mistake in using FFF as my default browser. Any help would be appreciated. thank you.

The search function in the browser redirects to https://www.gogote.com (instead of www.google.com), which uses the Google logo but delivers different results. Is this function hijacked by malware or did I miss something? I installed firefox 1 week ago. I found 2 add-ons, which I deactivated. How can I get rid of it?
