How do I add a 'You Tube' search engine to the drop down box on the right side of the address bar?

This is no longer available and I cannot find it on the You Tube website as is suggested in one of the Help pages. I have got lost looking through them.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-bar-easily-choose-your-search-engine?esab=a&as=aaq

I am using Firefox 22 with Windows 7 Operating System.

Please advise if there is a solution, what I need to do.

I was rather surprised not to see one myself.Possibly because it is now regarded that Google an using the video option is the same as a you tube search.

You could checkout the listings in

Brilliant - Thank you very much - I spent ages trying to sort that out and now I've got the answer in seconds and about three clicks!

As I get older I do not get more knowledgeable about using computer technology - it is a good job I don't have to write the programmes as well!

Glad it worked. Thanks for posting back.

You may note there are some changes coming up with Firefox's searches. In Fx23 whatever you set in the search bar is also used for other searches, so you may get unexpected videos showing up from the address bar.

Further in the future, probably Fx25 the navigation and search bar are being combined. Then there is talk of a new concept of search tabs.

Computer technology always changes. Moore's law gives ever more computing power but someone always finds a new feature or facility that becomes a must have essential and eats up all the power.

Interesting - but I don't really understand it all! Thanks anyway.

I still see a Add "<search item>" item if I click the search engine icon on the search bar (on this forum page: Add "Firefox Help") and on www.youtube.com I get Add "YouTube Video Search".
