Five Simple Steps on how to select a default Search Engine in Mozilla Firefox
There are more than 200 search engines in the world, including general search engines, P2P search engines, metasearch engines, geographically-based search engines, accountancy, business etc.
According to ecloudbuzz, less than 20 of these search engines have been tagged as “the best search engines www.ecloudbuzz.com/top-10-best-search-engines-in-the-world/ in the World.
Some of them are:
- Excite msxml.excite.com
The question now is: how do I select a preferred or default search engine?
Step 1: Click to open Mozilla Firefox browser. On top of the browser you’ll see two spaces with options: to the left, search or enter address (meant for URL); to the right is “search” with a magnifying glass.
Step 2: Click the magnifying glass to display the list of search you already have. As for me, I have Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, Ebay, Twitter, Wikipedia, Web search by Google, DuckduckGo. Under it is “Change Search Settings.”
Step 3: Click on “Change Search Settings” which will take you to “Options”
Step 4: Under the “Default search Engines” click on the drop down menu to select your default search engine.
My most preferred search engine is Google. I mostly use Google because it covers wider areas of disciplines.
Step 5: If your preferred search engine isn’t on the list, scroll down to “add more search engines” to the list; and choose your default search engine.
So, what’s your preferred search engine?
