Using Search Bar
To search, click in the Search Bar (or press "Ctrl+K") and start typing. Hit "Enter" and your search will be run. You can use "Alt+Enter" to open search results in a new tab.
The Search Bar supports more than one search engine. To see the list of available engines click the icon at the left of the bar, and a list showing the choices will appear. You can also use "Ctrl+Up"/"Ctrl+Down" to to cycle between the available choices.
Installing search plugins
To add new searches to the Search Bar, click the search icon and then click "Add Engines...". You will be taken to Firefox Central page where you can install a few more search plugins. The most comprehensive collection of search plugins is available at mycroft.mozdev.org.
You can always uninstall search plugins you don't like.
Clearing search history
You can clear the previous searches from the Search Bar. Just right-click it and select "Clear Search History". You can delete individual elements by selecting them and pressing "Shift+Del".
