Q: When I try to add a search engine to the list of engines in firefox, it doesn't get added.

A: This is because firefox writes the files to /opt/mozilla/lib/firefox/searchplugins, which is, by default, readable only by root. You can either chmod o+w this folder, or run firefox as root when you want to install a search engine.

Q: And how do you remove an engine?

A: 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.
