Replaceing OpenDNS Search With Google In Firefox Address Bar

Found a helpful article over on guidingtech.com that details how to send searches to Google instead of open DNS search page.

Anyone else note that if you enter a single word search it’s still redirected to open DNS? So “airway” returns open DNS search result but “jet airway” returns Google results. One workaround is to append single word searches with a “+”.  So, “airway+” or “+airway” returns Google results.  I know it’s not a perfect workaround having to remember to add a plus sign to your search query, but hey it’s a small price to pay for the speed of open DNS and the power of Google in the Firefox awesome bar.

About Brett

I live in Jacksonville, Florida USA where I ride my bike and run a small PC and network repair biz. I consider my self extremely lucky to earn a living doing what I love. I have been earning my living in this way for several years. Alas, my personality doesn’t allow me to rest on the successes of my past. Entrepreneurs are cursed that way. I started SpyandSeek while still in college but never finished it. (slight ADD another curse.) After a two years in the PC trade I decided it was time to finish what I started and so SpyandSeek was born. SpyandSeek has analyzed thousands of HijackThis logs from around the world since it’s launch in late 2005. It still amazes me how a tiny site like mine can touch so many far off places.
