I got an e-mail from a reader of Firefox Facts, and they wanted to know how can you re-organize your search engines in Firefox’s search box that lives in most people upper-right hand corner of Firefox.
This can easily be done via the built in search engine manager.
Click on Firefox’s search box, as if you were going to change search engines, and look at the bottom for a menu selection titled, “Manage Search Engines”. Clicking it will bring up the Manage Search Engine List. From here you can:
- Edit Search Engine Keywords
- Move Search Engines Up or Down
- Remove a Search Engine
- Restore the Default Search Engines
- Get More Search Engines
- Enable/Disable the “Show Search Suggestions”
There you have it. Now Firefox has not always had this option. Back in previous versions, you had to do some heavy duty hunting and pecking to really edit and organize your search engine selections. This at least gives you a more user friendly interface, and I am all about the user friendly around here.
