Make custom search engine the default one

Размещено

I added several custom search engines to Firefox on Linux by right-clicking their search bar and clicking "Add a Keyword for this search". Now I want to set one of them as my default search engine. However, despite the custom ones are working flawlessly with a keyword, I can't find them in the Firefox settings. I know that there are Plugins for several search engines available, and it is even possible to create an own one, but I don't want to install a plugin just for a search engine I already have. Any suggestions?

Hi userL, when you create a search keyword, it is attached to a bookmark, which is stored separately from the OpenSearch plugins (and equivalent extensions) listed on the Preferences page, Search panel.

I'm not aware of any way to use a bookmark as a default search engine, I'm pretty sure you will always need to use the keyword defined for the bookmark to send searches through the URL of that bookmark.
