How do I change the search engine in the awesome bar to IxQuick? Here's IxQuick's search engine website. https://ixquick.com/ I know how to change the search engine I just don't know what URL to use to change the awesome bar search engine to IxQuick.

Chosen solution

When I change the IxQuick settings to "GET" (turn off "POST") the URL for a search for firefox looks like this (all one line):

https://ixquick.com/do/search?lui=english&language=english&cat=web&query=firefox

To set keyword.URL, just make sure the URL ends with query= and Firefox will add your search terms on the end.

Does it work?

It works but the only problem is that for example, I'll write yogurt in the awesome bar and search that; but it will add firefox before yogurt. So overall it will search firefoxyogurt. I fixed the problem by deleting the added firefox at the end of https://ixquick.com/do/search?lui=english&language=english&cat=web&query=firefox Thank you for your help! Have an awesome day and happy holidays!

Glad you figured it out and apologies that I wasn't clearer about that.
