I want to add a search engine to the search bar from an XML file on my hard disk. "Manage Search Engines" from the search bar drop down list only appears to allow adding search engines from web sites.

Thanks.

Try to delete search.sqlite and search.json in the Firefox Profile Folder to make Firefox rebuild the database.

Place that XML file in the \searchplugins\ folder in your Profile folder, while Firefox is closed.

Hmmm. This didn't work. I even re-booted, and Firefox still doesn't show the search engine.

It was actually an update to an earlier engine, and I foolishly removed the old version rather than just updating it.

Is there anything elsewhere (eg. the registry) that might be preventing this?

Hey, that worked! Thanks a heap for that!

PS. Been on holidays for the past 3 weeks, so was eager to get back and try this.
