Windows 7 Firefox 57.0.4 The instructions in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-or-remove-search-engine-firefox#w_add-a-search-engine don't work. I want to add www.ebay.co.uk to the search bar. I open a tab in this website, but when I do, the green + sign over the magnifying glass in the search bar disappears and then there's no way to add this site to the options in the search bar.

Sorry, I didn't find a search plugin coded into this ebay home page. https://www.ebay.co.uk/ No green + for me and I looked at the source code for that page and didn't see the coding for a search engine for that web site.


You could install an ebay-UK search engine from the Mycroft Project, which was hosted and supported by Mozilla for many years before is was spun-off to its own website somewhat recently. http://mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=ebay+UK
