Question I need help with Firefox...

I have just installed Firefox on my computer to replace IE7, and I need help with adding your own search engines.

I read Creating OpenSearch plugins for Firefox but I can't understand it. Can anyone help with with (hopefully) step-by-step instructions...

Thanks a lot

You can change or add a search engine for the search toolbar in Mozilla FireFox by clicking on the button to the left of the search field, and clicking Manage Search Engines.... You'll see a list of installed search engines. You can add a new search engine by clicking on the Get more search engines... link below the list.

Alternatively, you can go straight to the following FireFox Add-on page to add a search engine:



|Desktop PC| |Macbook Air 13" (Mid 2013)|
|Windows 8.1 Pro (x64)| |AMD FX 4100 Black Edition 3.6 GHz @ 4.0 GHz OC| |Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 PRO| |Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Super Overclock 1GB| |ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 Motherboard| |Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD SATA III HDD| |Kingston HyperX 8GB PC3-14900 DDR3-1866| |OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular PSU| |NZXT Vulcan Micro ATX Case|

I know that (I'm not entirely stupid)
But Firefox only supplies the basic search engines. If you read in my original message, I wrote: "I need help with adding your own search engines."
I want to create my own search engines.
