There are 7 search engines listed in the Firefox browser.
They are Google, Yahoo,, Wikipedia, eBay, Amazon and Creative Commons.
So I want to remove a few. How to do that? Thanks.

It is really easy to do that. Then follow these steps:
1. Click on the g icon that is the search drop-down button in the toolbar
2. Click "Manage Search Engines" option
3. Select the search engine in the "Search Engine Management List"
4. Click "Remove". Click OK to close the window.
The search engine will have been removed from the list now.
Please let me know if this worked for you. ;)
