Type about:config in firefox's address bar. Filter for this keyword:

Code: Select all

keyword.URL

Type your own search query. I use google, so mine looks like this:

Code: Select all

Some distros include a custom search, usually DuckDuckGo and Yahoo Search, in the default web browser. Whenever you make a search with that custom search, your distro will get a small money.

One trick I've learned with DuckDuckGo is that, if you want to use Google search on DDG, you just need to use "!g" before the search term. Similarly, use "!b" or "!y" if you want to use Bing or Yahoo search, and "!i" to use Google images search.
