Good plugin to defeat the new Yahoo default search engine. Mozilla, WHY OH WHY are you resetting my search engine every time you update! RESPECT MY PREFERENCES!
nice, i like
I tried to add it but it would not allow me to. Does anyone have a suggestion. Is it only for PC's?
Does what it says, adds Google to Firefox on Linux Mint and sets it as the default.
Hello Google search with suggestions.
Goodbye MINT search.
Somehow Ask became my default search eng. No matter what I did, I couldn't get rid of it. I had tried dozens of suggested remedies w/no luck. This add on fixed the problem in minutes.
I spent an awful lot of time searching for a way to change the default search engine to Google for address bar and search bar in Firefox that comes with the latest version of Linux Mint (17). Finally this add-on did the trick. Thanks.
A worthwhile add.on.
You could also try uninstalling the Mint Firefox build and download and instal the official Mozilla build if there's other things you are unhappy about.
I was trying out Linux mint and .... what the heck? No Google option? Even their 'add more' page just had Google Scholarship.
I kept catching myself typing a search in and wondering why it wasn't working right. Just a few clicks and Firefox works correctly again.
Google spies on your every step and then creates priority in search results based on the information they gathered about you. In other words they give you the information you would like the world to give you. That's not objective.. that's unwanted and evil. No more Google syware for me.
In these days, my Google search engine which integrated in Firefox usually redirect to Google.com.hk, and try to update the plugin google.xml code, but problem still not resolved.
After install this add-on, all the search result is searched by Google.com. So I am happy to let others know this add-on is useful. You can have a try.
P.S I use FF Version 16.0
