        --Firefox on OS X--

        /Users/echobinary/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/kqc9bm9n.default/extensions/pavel.sherbakov@gmail.com/chrome/content/include/sd/livesearch.js:
        Line 3: //const URL = "http://flashvideodownloader.org/addon_search/?type=instant_search&from=ff_fvdsd&q=%query%";
        Line 4: const URL = "https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1#complete=1&q=%query%";

        /Users/echobinary/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/kqc9bm9n.default/extensions/pavel.sherbakov@gmail.com/chrome/content/include/speed_dial.js:
        Line 5262: //parent.document.location = "http://flashvideodownloader.org/addon_search/?q="+encodeURIComponent(searchText)+"&from="+key;
        Line 5263: parent.document.location = "https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1#complete=1&q="+encodeURIComponent(searchText)+"&from="+key;

        --------------------------------
        I included the original line above (commented out) the lines I changed. It both auto-completes and directs to google now. there might be some cosmetic text lingering about in other places, but this is the basic functionality you want.

        I can not change to Google Chrome with Yandex quick search on Google, help me please

      • neyel8rneyel8r commented  · 

        in newer versions, it seems that Google is the default search engine if you click the search button, but if you, like me, don't like the annoying Yahoo live search that also pops up while typing in the search box, go to:

        "%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[your_profile].default\extensions\pavel.sherbakov@gmail.com\chrome\content\include\sd"

        and delete the livesearch.js file & restart Firefox to get rid of the Yahoo live search.

        i also want this, i dont use google i use duckduckgo.com

      • VoleVole commented  · 

        This extension would be about perfect, if I didn't have to go into the js files to make changes in order to choose a default search engine... as explained by Peep below.

        Thanks Peep :)

        Have no "CREATE DIAL" in FF 17 for MAC
        Tried everything can think of --- un & reinstalled several times
        Can not use Speed Dial feature at all
        WHY NO ADD TO TOP SITES BUTTON ? --- makes things very simple

      • neyel8rneyel8r commented  · 

        yes please, or perhaps the ability to change the search engine to whatever i like.... thanks!

        i DID find the comments below to be extremely helpful in the mean time....

        BTW it will change most likely with each update so just save the orig line and when it's updated you can search for it quickly and replace it again or disable updates.

      • drewdrew commented  · 

        Line 4378 http://www.google.com/#hl=en&; Just replace the current link in the quotation marks and it will be fine. You can change it to anything you prefer ;)

        Also save a backup of the file just in case you screw up. If it's not on line 4378 just use the search command on notepad++ and search for "search" it should be the 3rd result.

        Edit the speed_dial.js file located in "C:\users\***your_username***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\***your_current_profile***\extensions\pavel.sherbakov@gmail.com\chrome\content\include\ at line 4267, and replace the line after:

        if( searchText ){

        with

        parent.document.location = "http://www.google.com/search?q="+encodeURIComponent(searchText);

        That's google but you can use any url you like... Dont forget to restart firefox ;)

        I agree, please allow for an alternative of the users choice.
