Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have set the keyword.URL field in about:config to https://www.google.co.in/search?q= but still when I type anything in the address bar it shows results in Yahoo! search.

How about you got to about:support then click the icon that says "Copy text to clipboard" then edit your question and add the information. –  Braiam Sep 30 '13 at 1:06

Enter yahoo in the search bar of about:config and check whether there is some value similar to the Yahoo search URL. Change this one to the Google search URL too.

BTW: This question doesn't seem to be related to Ubuntu

Here's the screen shot for the search result - docs.google.com/file/d/0B-TyP4sP9s_fb0VpcUdDRlNTWU0/… Sorry if I asked in the wrong section, I'm a newbie. Its just that I use Ubuntu, so I asked here. –  nisargshah95 Sep 29 '13 at 18:27
Try changing browser.search.selectedEngine, defaultEngineName and order.1 to Google –  the_Seppi Sep 29 '13 at 20:03
Thanks. It worked after changing those values. –  nisargshah95 Sep 30 '13 at 3:58
