How To Change Firefox Right Click Search Option Tutorial


This is a short tutorial on how to change Firefox right click search option of your own choice.

By default, most of us set our Firefox right-click search to Google.

The other day I installed DuckDuckGo add-on to my Firefox.

Then later I found out when I highlighted a text and right clicked on it, the menu search is now set as "Search DuckDuckGo for". (see image below)

Currently I am still setting it to DuckDuckGo is because I am regularly using the ProxyFoxy.
