Now that DuckDuckGo is reported to have started suppressing free speech I would like to move to the Brave search engine.  Can you add it to the list of supported search engines?  Thanks


Well, commercial search engines usually pay to be included in Firefox, so the desire would need to be mutual. If you want to add Brave Search (or many other search engines) to Firefox now, here's how you do it:

  1. Open the search site's home page
  2. Right-click the address bar
  3. At the bottom of the menu, click Add "Brave Search" (this only appears if sites include a header in the page pointing to the OpenSearch XML file with the necessary URLs)

I strongly agree.

This would be greatly appreciated. I love brave search but not brave browser and it would be nice to see this added to Firefox so that it could be used in downstream librewolf

I would love to see brave added to Firefox.

How difficult would it be to add the Brave search engine to the list of search engine options. I have been using Duck-Duck-Go until it was recently revealed they are not the privacy advocates the implied they were. Given the Firefox community's focus on privacy, this seems like a logical option.

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

Strollin' around

This would be a great addition to the Android/iOS versions of Firefox and Firefox Focus, you can add Brave Search via the custom search engine option, but search suggestions won't work, so adding it as a default would fix that.

Making moves

@ArchHughes I'd like to have Brave Search among the options, but for a different reason. You and other people concerned about the policy/privacy/ideas of DuckDuckGo, but, at the end of the day, DuckDuckGO is just a Bing frontend.

So, I'd rather add Brave Search because it's an option to to information you get from the Google and the Bing search engines as they are the only 2 real options on the market
