i am trying to change FF's default url used when keywords are entered into the search box.

my attempts, so far, have not been successful. yeah, i've added this to user.js with no luck.

Code: Select all
// default URL (search box)
user_pref("browser.search.defaulturl", "http://images.google.com/images?btnG=Google+Search&q=");


any ideas? i'd like to use the search box for quick access to google's image search. using the string above, all i can achieve is defaulting to a normal google web search, which I normally just use the address bar for.

cheers,

scott

Code: Select all
http://images.google.com/images?q=%s&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&btnG=Google+Search

would be my guess
(it's untested though)

EDIT:
forget that.
what you should do is visit mycroft.
there, you should add the google-images engine.
just search for google on that page
I'm nice
