Change Default Search Engine in Firefoxby Deepanshu Goel on July 12, 2008
Every browser like FireFox or IE does searches on a default search engine set some where in its configuration. Changing this default search engine is a little bit tricky, but not anymore. Deepak, my friend, installed a chat software from RediffBol which also changed the default search engine as Rediff Search but he now wants to change it back to Google [my fav].
This is how you can get it done:
in the address bar of FireFox, type:
In the box markedfilter, type:
Double click the value field and modify that value, by pasting:
Then save that by pressing “Ok”.
Now, you can use your address bar just as Google search bar. Go nuts, since now you can search by entering the search terms in the address bar and pressing enter. This way you never need to visit www.google.com again!!!
