== 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.
