Changing search engine in IE9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to change to a different search enginge, that is not found in the add-ons gallery. I prefere to use imdb.com as i search for a lot of movies, and just type "? moviename" and get the result from imdb instead. Using that instead of default search engine used to work fine, but it seems like they removed the ability to change it to whatever you want...

    Anyone, knows how to change it?

    Regards, Thomas Jensen

    There was an omission.   I don't know if it has been fixed but in the meantime Eric Lawrence is providing a workaround.

  • Thank you soooooooooo very much!  I just complained to MS about run around I've have trying to figure out how to add ANY search engine I choose (not in the gallery) in IE 9.  I wasted over an hour  on this issue.  I know user worldwide (who read English) will be thrilled to find this answer!
