Switching Search Engines

Firefox enables you to easily switch between search engines. For example, when first installed, Firefox uses Google to execute searches when the Search bar is used. To switch search engines, click the change search engine button at the left end of the Search bar (see Figure 3.4). This icon has a down arrow symbol to signify that this is a drop-down control.

When the Change Search Engine button is clicked, you can select any of the search engines listed (see Figure 3.4). (If the search engine you want is not listed, refer to the previous section.) Clicking a search engine makes it the new default for searches.
