Firefox Search Engine Default

richb's picture

Version: 

  • MX-16

Tracker: 

  • Request

Status: 

  • In Progress

Priority: 

  • Normal

Additional Information: 

Firefox in Beta 1 defaults to Amazon as a search engine. This is an odd choice already panned by one reviewer. This should be changed to Google or some other legitimate search engine. I propose Google.

Kent and the packagers are working on it.  this is actually a firefox issue, rather than mx-16.  there appear to be new settings to configure, and our distribution.ini file isn't hitting them all.  

New deb of firefox in mx

Comment: 

New deb of firefox in mx repos fixes the problem by defaulting to google. Left status to In Progress since vegan is looking for a better way if possible so we can assign our own default search engine (as we did in MX-15).
