How to add a search engine? I don't want an Add-On or Extension. Just another search engine.

I see no way of doing this. You'd think there would be an ADD option somewhere in the search engine page. Instead it takes me to the Add-Ons page. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/extensions/category/search-tools/ What has this got to do with adding a search engine to the browser? Must be a mistake.

Is there really no way of editing what you just wrote? What? What forum does this? All I get when I click the 3 dots is "Quote". How useful!

Now, days later, I can edit this post. Something is not quite right. Great to see things are back to normal now.

Did you try to right-click the search field on this website and look for "Add a Keyword for this Search" ?
