Welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set the default search engine on Mozilla Firefox while using a Windows 7 computer.
Start by opening the browser.
To open it, double-click on the icon and wait for it to load.
Once it's loaded, open the "Options".
To go to the options, first click the 3 lines in the upper right corner of the screen.
Then, click on "Options".
Once the new tab opens, click on the "Search" section on the left side.
In this section, click on the drop-down menu and select from the existing search engines.
There are several options to choose from. In this example, it is set to Google.
If "Provide search suggestions" is selected, when anything is typed in the search bar, it will show suggestions.
For example, if "VisiHow" is searched, there are suggestions.
If "Provide search suggestions" is not selected, it will not show suggestions.
There are also several other icons for different search engines when typing in the search bar.
To remove those search engine icons, uncheck the box to the left of the search engine.
In this example, Bing has been removed.
To add a search engine, click "Add more search engines" in blue at the bottom.
A new tab will open.
In this tab, choose another search engine and click "Add to Firefox".
In this example, "YouTube" will be added.
The system will show a confirmation prompt.
Click "Add" to add it, or "Cancel" to cancel. Set the search engine as the default by checking the box to the left of "Make this the current search engine".
If the search bar is selected, YouTube is now added.
That concludes the tutorial on how to set the default search engine in the Mozilla Firefox browser on a Windows 7 computer.
