Hello josephmiller052,

I presume you are talking about the Search By Image add-on, so I installed the add-on on my Firefox Android application to try it out.

To use the add-on, go to your webpage of choice that has an image, then tap the 3-dotted menu button on the bottom right of the Firefox app, then tap "Add-ons", and tap "Search by Image". In the "Search by Image" add-on's settings page, tap the drop-down menu on the top left, then tap "Select Image".

Note: There are a variety of ways to search by image, but this way seems to be the most intuitive to me.

You can then select which search engine you want to search the image with, in this case, I tapped "Google". You will then be brought to your opened webpage, with a pop-up saying "Select an image". You can then tap the image that you want to search. In my case, I tapped the "No Tech for ICE" image. The add-on will then load and show relevant results.

Attached are screenshots of me trying the add-on for additional context.

Kindly mark this answer as the solution (solved) if it managed to help you. If not, kindly report back so I can help!
