Newer Method

Visit https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:4/ and install.

If you want to custom one, take a look at : ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxx.default/searchplugins/ where xxx is you profile id).

Method for root user

Firefox writes search engine files to /opt/mozilla/lib/firefox/searchplugins, which is, by default, readable only by root. This means users cannot add search engines. You can either chmod o+w this folder, or run firefox as root when you want to install a search engine.

To remove search engines, remove the appropriate search engine files in /opt/mozilla/lib/firefox/searchplugins. Next time you start Firefox the engine won't be in the list.
