Every modern browser has default search engine settings. In some browsers, there are separate settings for the initial search page, the address bar and also for the search box in the toolbar, if the last one is highlighted as a separate element. However, in Firefox for all the places where you can enter a search query only one setting is valid. In this article, we are going to explain in a step-by-step guide how to change the default search engine in Mozilla Firefox.

How to change the default search engine in Mozilla Firefox

Changing browser settings

So, in order to change the search engine in the Firefox, you need:

  • To run the browser and click on the menu button on the toolbar. This button is in the upper-right corner of the window (three horizontal lines)
  • Select “Options” from the menu. In the window that opens, go to the “Search” section.
  • In the “Default search engine” box choose from a list the search engine that you want.

Note. Remove the “Defenders”

If you see a notice that the changes have been canceled, or if the previous settings, after you restarted the browser, were restored again, it is likely that you installed some add-ons, with the search toolbar integrated, which does not allow the users to make changes to Internet settings.

To disable add-ons that cause the problems, you need to do some simple changes. Go to “Menu”, click on “Add-ons” and on the list find the add-on with toolbar included and click on “Remove”. After that, restart Mozilla Firefox.

If nothing happens, run Mozilla Firefox in Safe mode. Click on “Help” button on the top of the screen, click on “Troubleshooting Information” and click “Restart with add-ons disabled”.
