Yahoo Search Results from Address Bar of Firefox Searches





Possum
Hi

When I do a search from the Firefox Address bar it goes to Yahoo. How can I change this to Google.?


Thank you..

Copied from http://www.technipages.com/firefox-change-address-bar-search-provider.html
1. In Firefox type about:config in the address bar and press ENTER.

2. Locate and double-click the entry for keyword.URL

3. Set the value based on which search provider you would like to use for your address bar searches. Here are a few search strings you can use.

Yahoo: http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=

Ask: http://www.ask.com/web?q=

Bing: http://www.bing.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=navclient&gfns=1&q=

DuckDuckGo: http://duckduckgo.com/?q=

Google: http://www.google.com/search?&q=

Works perfectly thx

I'm not too sure when this started. Do you think Firefox made the change or did one of those many apps I install do it.
