search engines

Post by puppyX » 2020-02-08, 12:13

How are new search engines added to the list ? I want to add 5 new engines but when 'manage search engine list' is opened it doesn't have the option of adding the engines I choose. How is that addition done ? Either I've forgotten or the options have changed because the old list on my other PC is still in place.

Sorry, unable to post a screen shot. Linux Trisquel only giving me png

Download a search plugin and it will be added to the list of search engines.
Look at https://addons.palemoon.org/search-plugins/ and see if there are the ones you are looking for.
And what's wrong about PNG?

If you go to a search engine home page, e.g.
https://www.gigablast.com/
there is often something like "Add Gigablast to your browser's search engines" and if you click on it then it does what it says.
Also if you press the arrow on the left of the Pale Moon search box you can click manage search engines > add search engines. But I guess the ones you want aren't in there.

Have managed to add a few more search engines, thanks.

As for the png picture I tried to drag and drop and load as an attachment. Nothing happens.

Have you tried the old method of clicking on buttons?
