I am not yet using Brave browser, because Chrome based. How-To add Brave Search to Firefox Search Bar?

Brave, the browser which has gained momentum and popularity in recent years, is taking another leap forward in its quest to offer users a more private and secure internet experience. Starting today, Brave browser users will have access to Brave Search in beta, a completely new search engine that offers "unmatched privacy."

I know link only comment is bad but the primary answer is available here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-or-remove-search-engine-firefox

  1. Visit a website that offers an OpenSearch search engine (Brave Search supports it).
  2. Right Click on the search bar
  3. Select Add "Brave Search"

  • After trying to unsuccessfully to make Brave my default, I successfully followed these instructions and then, to make Brave search my default, went back to the Search tab in Settings, where Brave had been added as one of the available options.

    This way used to work, but has been removed in new versions of Firefox Aug 12, 2022 at 8:11
  • @EinoGourdin, I think you can add it back by setting browser.urlbar.update2.engineAliasRefresh to true as explained here: superuser.com/a/1756774
