Mozilla Previews New Search Interface for Firefox
Mozilla on Tuesday previewed the upcoming search interface for Firefox, featuring an improved search suggestion design and a new 'array of buttons' below search suggestions in the search box.

"When typing a search term into the Firefox search box, you will notice two new things: first, we improved the design of search suggestions to make them look a lot more organised. And second: there is an array of buttons below your search suggestions. These buttons allow you to find your search term directly on a specific site quickly and easily," notes the Mozilla UX blog post.

In other words, when a search query is typed in the search box located on the top of the browser, it will allow users to directly search the same query from different options like Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Twitter and Wikipedia, as demonstrated by the company.

With the new Firefox, users will be able to easily add an additional search engine to the list of selected search engines. 'Change search settings' replaces the current 'Manage search engines' at the bottom of the auto-complete dropdown. Tapping on the magnifying glass in the search field on the top of browser will also give an option to add the website that is currently open on the page (see below).


Last week, the company had announced that it is switching from Google to Yahoo as the default service for online searches done through the Web browser in the United States. The deal between the two companies will start in December and is set to last five years, Yahoo said. Notably, Google has been the default option for Firefox searches since 2004.
