Lemme start off with some small flock 0.7.0.10 hacks. All the hacks below are related to search engines so to get the search options : Type in about:config in the location bar and then in the Filter bar type search . A list of options containing the term search appear. Now its the time to tweak..1. Changing the default search engine to Google
I have already dealt with this topic in an earlier post However i will mention the hack again just for the sake of completeness ;) So here is how to proceed. Double click the browser.search.defaultenginename and set it to Google. Similarly set the browser.search.defaulturl to http://www.google.com/search?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q= Thats it..too easy :) 2. Showing the Other search engine results
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
</p> </b>This hack involves changing the *flock.search.excludedEngines* parameter. The default values are of the form : <i>NC:SearchCategory?engine=urn:search:engine:[engine name].src <p> </i>Engine name can be Yahoo! or technorati etc etc. So if you don't want the Yahoo search just put in *yahoo* in place of *engine name.* The \*.src files are in the "searchplugins" directory in the parent flock directory. All these stuff can be changed from the Tools -\> Personalize Flock -\> Searching tab.
- You can also reorder the search engines appearance in the search menu by changing the specific parameters browser.search.order.1 etc.
