I can't add search providers from website and I can't find search providers on the add-ons site
I'm using Firefox 3.6.3 and I removed the Google search provider (I was trying to figure out how to get it to default to using the new SSL search site), but now I can't re-add Google from their website and when I select the "Get more search engines..." link I get taken to the Firefox Add-Ons site where the searches do not actually return search providers, just plug-ins.
Every time Firefox opened
== Dunno, this is the first time I've tried to add search providers in Firefox 3.6.3

You can restore the default search engines if you click the search engine icon on the Google search bar and open "Manage Search Engines".
You can add your own search bar by using https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3682 I use this all the time it is very simple and easy to use
Add Google SSL (still in beta testing) to the search bar (click the first item): http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=google+ssl
If you want Google SSL (still in beta testing) to search when typing in the URL/location bar, you need to change a preference, keyword.url: -Enter about:config in the address/URL bar and press the Enter key -If you see a warning, accept it (Promise that you will be careful) -Filter = keyword.url -Below the Filter, right-click on keyword.URL and choose "Modify" -Enter or copy the following into the value field: https://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q= -Restart Firefox (File > Restart Firefox)

- NOTE: On Vista and Windows 7 you may need to run the plugin installer as Administrator by starting the installer via the right-click context menu if you do not get an UAC prompt to ask for permission to continue (i.e nothing seems to happen). See this: http://vistasupport.mvps.org/run_as_administrator.htm
- NOTE for IE: Firefox and most other browsers use a Plugin. IE uses an ActiveX version of Flash. To install/update the IE ActiveX Adobe Flash Player, same instructions as above, except use IE to download the ActiveX Flash installer.
