Isn't there a drop down menu on the search box? Been a while since I used FF last and since it defauts to google I never checked.

not the boxon the right, the address bar, i used to be able to type OSNN and it would know to go here, now when i type osnn it takes me to damn YAHOO..i hate yahoo

fixed


  1. In the Firefox address bar, type about:config
  2. Then, in the Filter box at the top type keyword
  3. This should show up a Preference Name called keyword.url. Right-click on this and select Modify

Type in address bar "about:config".

Search for "browser.search.defaultenginename"

Change it to "Google" and restart your browser.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
