    Securing Firefox is hard.

    Hi.
    I want to secure my Firefox by installing "Startpage" as my preferred search engine. However when I try to click "Add to Firefox" it does not work.
    Here is the website where I tried to get the engine for my Firefox bar: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rc=userprofile

    Why does it not work and how can I fix the search engine in to my Firefox bar?

    Try installing from this page: https://startpage.com/eng/download-s...ge-plugin.html and then follow their instructions. It works fine for me.

    I installed "Startpage" from the website you linked to. It's installed and working.

    Don't want to spoil the fun, but installinig the Startpage search won't secure Firefox in any way.
    Be as it may, glad it worked for you.
