Actually, there is Google to add. A whole lot of Google engines, starting on this page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... me&page=44
Still, I don't know why you insist on adding the Google search engine using that method and refusing to try out the one I suggested, via the engines list. I mean, you could at least try. New Firefox isn't causing any problems for me, but if it's really so bad for you, why not file a bug report?

Why did it all the sudden stop working? And why can't I get the official Google search box back in a straight forward manner? I don't know why I can't just click the "get more search engines" link, and be shown a list of official search boxes from search providers, and not something thrown together by a third party. This isn't hard, and I don't know if it is because the version of Firefox that comes with Mint is altered by them and they don't want to make it easy because Google doesn't give them money? Or if this latest version of Firefox just really messed this up? It's nothing personal against you. Thank you for your suggestions. But you must agree that this is a pretty ridiculous issue that has no business occurring either within Firefox, or Mint itself?

If you don't want to use an add-on, then read this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/989978
Which language is selected in your Firefox when you right-click on some text input box?
