    • Make Firefox Search work for you
      Firefox Search Engine comes with many searches, like Google and Wikipedia

      One search engine I suggest you all add is Shmoop
    • Add-ons: more than search engines
      Firefox also has
      Add-ons that can allow you to do almost anything you’d want your browser to do.
      Add-ons are created by users, and currently there are over 12,000 of them.
    • Add-ons: more than search engines
      To find your Firefox Add-ons, go to Tools, Add-ons
    • Firefox Add-ons
      To find more Add-ons, just click the Get Add-ons tab and then the “Browse All Add-ons” link
