In an earlier article on Firefox 4 we discussed how to add the search functionality to Firefox 4 address bar. Now that Firefox comes with address bar search as a default option, we have created a new guide on How to change and manage default search engines in Firefox 5 and above.
Here is the step by step tutorial.
Step1: Load Firefox
Step2: Type “about: config” in the address bar and press enter
Step 3: Ignore the warning and click “I will be careful, I promise!”
Step 4: In the filter text box at the top of screen type “keyword.url”
Step 5: Double Click on the keyword.URL. It will open a pop up window asking you to “Enter String Value” . You can also right click on keyword.URL and click Modify
Step 6: To display search results, you need to replace the String with one of the following strings as per your favourite search engine.
Google Search (I’m feeling Lucky): http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I%27m+Feeling+Lucky&q=
AOL Search: http://search.aol.com/aol/search?s_it=searchbox.webhome&q=
6: Click OK when you are done.
