    Just select it from the drop down menu to the left of the search box. Firefox should remember.

    That's once you've added it to firefox of course.

    Re: duckduckgo

    click on the "search bar" -> "Manage search engine" -> "Get more search engines" , and you get the page of "ADD-ONS" for firefox, so in the search field enter "duckduckgo" -> in the first result , click "Add to FIrefox"

    if you already have the "duckduckgo" in the list:
    click on the "search bar" -> "Manage search engine" -> mark "duckduckgo" and press "OK"

    Or if you mean from the address bar you'll have to edit about:config and put
    Code:
    http://duckduckgo.com/?q=
    as the value for keyword.url
