Not sure if it's in the stable version yet, but it recently became a lot easier in the betas. I really like how Firefox has been shaping up lately on mobiles.

Yep! FF 26.0.1 just got pushed to my tablet and adding ddg to search and setting as default is very easy. just go to then long click on the search field and you'll get the option to add ddg as a search provider. Then go to FF Settings\Customize\Search settings to set ddg as the default. Finally!!!

Nice! Will add this to the Firefox help article.

NP, glad that this feature is now available. BTW, I should have said "long touch" instead of "long click on the search field", since we are talking tablets here, which pretty much eliminates "clicking".

Haha, that's right! : P
BTW, it seems that the short domain ( doesn't support connecting over SSL/HTTPS, just in case someone wondered why it won't load. : ) It that something that should be fixed? : )

That's good news! I've been avoiding Firefox on Mobile because hard-to-ignore rendering glitches keep on popping up for me, which is unfortunate because I like to use Mozilla products.
