  • I can't thank you enough for this extension.
  • This is a lifesaver if you've come from Chrome, which is much better for search engine customization. It works very nicely, and unlike another add-on I tried, it will find the appropriate favicon for the search engine on its on.

    Only real flaw is after you add a search engine, when you add the next it will by default continue using the last favicon. You have to always delete the current custom favicon url before entering the next search string if you want the write icon.

    If you add a different url it should find the proper favicon. Short of that, there should be a "clear" button so I don't have to select and delete.

    Also it won't let you add a nickname, but I'm assuming that's a limitation of Firefox.
  • It does exactly what it should do. The search engines even stay after removing the extension. Only four starts because the usage of file.io. Firefox Send or something local would be better if possible.
    Firefox Send needs decryption with JS and does not serve raw files. We can't host a server locally, but need a http(s) URL. I am open to practical suggestion on github.
  • Could you please tell me how to add a search engine using payload of JSON or XML format?
    I am not sure what this means. You can see the documentation at: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/OpenSearch. "application/x-suggestions+json" can be used for suggestions when entering you search query. In general we can only support what Firefox supports.
  • Easy to use if you know a little about search engines. It worked on criticker with https://www.criticker.com/?search=%s It does what I needed, add the search directly into the search bar as Wikipedia; Duck, etc.
  • Great extension! Did exactly what I was looking for.
  • Perfect.

    Thanks a million!
  • Hi here.
    Taking into account the following news what is the future of this extension?
  • Great add-on, but it would be nice if it had an instruction. What exactly am I suppose to type in suggest url to get suggestions in search bar?

    Edit: Oki thanks, I've found what I was looking for and it works now.
    I am afraid I can't help you directly. You just have to know where to get that information. Most search engines don't actually support suggestions, but for example DuckDuckGo uses https://duckduckgo.com/ac/?q={searchTerms}&type=list as seen in their OpenSearch XML: https://duckduckgo.com/opensearch.xml
  • Thank you,
    I think i had a virus which made amazon my default search engine and trying to restore to default would only bring back amazon, none of firefox's reccomendations on solving the problem worked,( whi did they fucking remove the manual management of engines).
    thx u saved me a lot of time.
  • An awsome plug-in BUT I can not find a way for changing the sequence of the custom search engines I've made.
  • Works like a charm. 👍

    I don't know why Mozilla still has not added this basic functionality to Firefox. 😕 It's been available in even the first version Chrome. ¬_¬

    Thankfully this add-on provides this necessary function and is compatible with Quantum (a previous add-on that did this was not and was remove).
  • Very nice easy to use !
