Add Engines... not working with Firefox
The Firefox package included with Fedora Core does not allow non-root
users to add new search engines to the Web Search bar in the
upper-right hand corner of the browser. This is because the searchplugins
directory is only
writable by root.
ls -ld $(rpm -ql firefox
searchplugins | head -n1)
2 root root 4096
Nov 13 20:52 /usr/lib/firefox-1.0/searchplugins
To be able to Add
make this directory writable by your user or group; it is a good
practice never to make a directory world-writable.
