Ah, pipilika! Yes, I've heard about that. It's a new search engine in Bangalesh. Unfortunately, it's not available to be added at the moment. I visited the website and couldn't add it using the add-on link cor-el gave OR able to find it using the MyCroftProject link

A workaround, since the engine is new and not widely known, is to set your new tab to open up this search engine.. If you would like to do that you can do so below

  1. Go to about:config via the Address Bar (Ctrl + L)
  2. Press the button saying you'll be careful
  3. Search for browser.newtab.url
  4. Right click it then click Modify. Erase the existing string (default is about:newtab) and replace it with
  5. Click OK then restart Firefox.

There are three URL types Firefox supports:

* type="text/html" is used to specify the URL for the actual search query itself.
* type="application/x-suggestions+json" is used to specify the URL to use for fetching search suggestions.
* type="application/x-moz-keywordsearch" is used to specify the URL used when a keyword search is entered in the location bar. This is not supported on Internet Explorer.

    The URL to go to to open up the search page at the site for which the plugin is designed to search. This provides a way for Firefox to let the user visit the web site directly.

Reference and Plugin category are for the Mycroft Project site, so they know when you update a search engine and in what categories it to place.
