Programatically manage search engines

search

(Michal Stanke) #1

Hi.

I have an idea for an extensions that would allow the users to create custom search engines, or at least will add a search engined for a particular service, that will be customizable from the extension options. The only way to add a search engine I have found is “chrome_settings_overrides”, but that’s a static key in the manifest. Is there an alternative API that would allow to add search engines from the code and potentially change them?

There’s https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1268401 on that, I guess?
