    I want to consolidate my Firefox search bar to just Google, Wikipedia, and LEO (translator). Any way to get rid of Answers.com, Amazon, Yahoo, etc.?

    Would you suggest using version 2.0? Its beta, so will it be even slightly noticably buggy?

    I can't answer that...I'm a Safari user with Firefox 1.5.0.4 installed only for when Safari won't work. I think people are having pretty good success with Firefox 2.0 though.

    Find your Firefox.app, right/ctrl-click it and choose "Show Package Contents", navigate to Contents -> MacOS -> searchengines and delete whatever engines you dislike... :)

    ...but do try Firefox RC3, it's amazing... ;)
