Firefox for Android: specify default search engine

You can specify a default search engine other than Google in Firefox for Android. I’ll take the DuckDuckGo as example:

Once you have installed your add-on, write about:config in the address bar. There you can Add a New Setting:

  • Select String as type;
  • Enter as name;
  • Enter DuckDuckGo as value.

Otherwise, you can also tap the menu button, go to Tools, Add-ons, select your Search Add-on and tap on Set as Default.
