Firefox Search Engine Default

  • MX-16


  • Request


  • In Progress


  • 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


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).
