Change URL Search Engine

Many people use URL bar to query their preferred search engine. Internet url_searchengine Explorer makes it easy to change URL search engine by choosing a default search engine from search engine list box. However Firefox requires a little bit more to do.

In order to change URL search engine:

  1. Open Firefox and type "about:config" in the URL bar then press enter.
  2. In the filter text box type "keyword.url" then double click the result.
  3. By default it is set to Google search engine but if you would like to change it to your preferred search engine choose one of the following links:
    Live: "http://search.live.com/results.aspx?form=CHROME&q="
    Yahoo: "http://search.yahoo.com/search?p="
