Mozilla FireFox

(compiled from PEG messages by Gordon Robertson and Scott M Dulecki)

When you use Mozilla FireFox as your browser, you can teach it so search in Proogle.
Here is how:
Locate your FireFox installation directory; on my PC it is "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox"
This directory already has a subdirectory "searchplugins".

Attached to this topic is a file "", it contains two files "proogle.src" and "proogle.gif". Save these two files in the "searchplugins" directory.
The Proogle search plugin will be enabled when you restart FireFox.
