== 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 <tt>/opt/mozilla/lib/firefox/searchplugins</tt>, which is, by default, readable only by root. This means users cannot add search engines. You can either <code>chmod o+w</code> 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.
