I know this is possible, how though? I don't see it in the options, or anywhere else for that matter. I am however able to get Google as the default search provider, but for some reason, that only applies to the search bar in the upper right corner search box.

Firefox ver: 5.0


You can choose the default search engine. Go to "about:config", and search for: "browser.search.defaultenginename" Then edit it to say Google.

With keyword searches, you have more options. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_keyword_searches
