Set or Modify Default Search Engine from Address Bar in Mozilla Firefox

Modify Default Search Engine

The eToolKit hacked my Mozilla web browser by setting its search engine on my address bar. It was so annoying so I found a solution to Modify Default Search Engine:

1. Open Mozilla Web Browser

2. In the address bar, type about:Config and press enter

3. You will get a security warning "This might void your warranty!", just ignore it and click "I’ll be careful, I promise!".

4. In filter box, type keyword.URL

5. Select the row that appears and right click on it and click Reset. You can also set it to something else by right clicking and clicking Modify. You can then set it to a search URL as required. However, check the details for the search engine URL to be used with their respective website.
