Cash is Good!

I have taken a part-time job, and it's definitely affecting my blogging time. I'll continue to post here as I am able.

Set Search Bar Default in Firefox

Does your preferred search engine in Firefox sometimes revert to one that you don't want to use all the time? This can easily happen when an update is performed, or sometimes if it locks up and has to be shut down by the system.

This is an annoying little problem. It's easy to pull down the list and click on the one you want, but how do you get it back to being the default search preference?

Using the picture above as a guide, you will notice that at the bottom of the list is a choice called Manage Search Engines. Click on that and you will see the box as below.

Then you can select the search engine preference you want and move it to the top of the list. That will make it the default search engine choice. You can order any of the others as you wish, too.

This is very simple, but it's difficult to find the instructions for how to actually do it.
