Recently we’ve covered about Firefox Preview 3.0 beta where we’d told you Mozilla has turned on Enhanced Tracking Protection for all users, besides that, Quick Action bar has been removed and the functions in it have been moved to 3-dot menu, after that, more changes landed in Firefox Preview Nightly, as of today, you can create custom search engines and move navigation bar at the bottom to top by using the option provided for toolbar in Settings.
Currently, Firefox Preview ships with these default search engines:
Nightly version further allows to choose and add these search engines:
Besides these, if you want to add any other search engines that are not offered by Firefox Preview, you can create custom search engines in the browser manually, here is how that can be done.
1. In Firefox Preview Nightly, tap on 3-dot menu > Settings > Basic > Search
2. Under Address bar, tap on + Add search engine
3. Select Custom, type the Name and Search string to use in the respective fields,
For instance, to add Baidu, you need to type Baidu as name, and “https://www.baidu.com/search?q=%s” (without quotes) as the string.
4. Tap on the tick to save and apply the changes. Firefox shows the search engine added confirmation and lists it under the “Default search engine” to select and use.
One of the differences between Firefox Preview and Firefox for Android (Fennec) is in the former, address bar is located at the bottom, you can now move it to the top in the Nightly version.
1. Tap on 3-dot menu > Settings > Basics > Toolbar, select “Top”
Note: this change doesn’t affect the bottom position of the navigation bar in the Firefox home screen, as you start to type, you’ll notice the address bar on top rather than at the bottom.
