can't add Yippy.com as default search engine
Yippy.com search engine recommends mozilla firefox and has a large button in the corner to make it default search on mozilla. This does not work and this search bar does not appear to be an option on mozilla? It is a search bar by IBM powered by Watson. Anyone know whats going on?
I got it. The three dots on the URL bar let me add it.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Yippy.com is using a strange method to attempt to allow you to install a search engine - it is using sources and relying on data from mycroftproject.com. Unfortunately for them, that method of installation is not longer supported which is why it doesn't work.
It is a bit strange that they chose to rely on a third-party site, rather than offering the search engine description themselves - which they can do themselves via OpenSearch or Add-ons.
Yippy responded to me this morning:
To: E M Giasson:
We just updated the site to allow the direct OpenSearch installation of the Yippy search engine within Firefox this morning. Please let us know if it is working for you.
I still can't find it. How shouldI be adding this?
