I've added a custom search engine in Firefox, but then realized that its name/title was too long.

How do I edit a custom search engine's name in Firefox?

I tried going to 'Manage Search Engines...', but it only allows me to edit the keyword, not the name.

You can do that with the Organize Search Engines extension.

It will replace the "manage search engines" dialog with another one which has way more options to, well, manage your search engines :)

You can find the Search Providers in your Firefox Profile (search.json)


Replace user and profile with your profile names.
