How do I change the default search engine to dogpile which isn't listed in the default search engine drop down list box? Can this be done? John

Hi John, there are several options:

(1) When you are on a search site, click the Page Action menu button in the address bar (•••) to see whether the site provided Firefox a URL to install its search plugin. I'm not seeing it with Dogpile.

(2) Check the Mozilla Add-ons site. A search didn't find one that seems specific to Dogpile: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?type=search&q=dogpile

(3) Check the Mycroft site: https://mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=dogpile

When I test out the "(https)" one, it gives results on a different domain:

https://results.dogpile.com/search/web?q=firefox

But it seems to work (same organic results as www site; different ads).

(4) Create your own. This can be a bit of work, so if the one in #3 suits your needs, that would be much easier.
