Update To New Google Favicon in Firefox Search Bar

You all know about the resent change of Google favicon, but Firefox users may have noticed that still the search box has the classic Google favicon. This search box comes integrated with the Firefox browser.

If any one of you are eager to update it to the new Google favicon then you have to make a small and a quick update as follows:

  1. You have to download this update version of the Google Search plug-in.
  2. On Windows Machine:

    Search the folder "Serachplugins" located in the Firefox folder in Program Files.

    Example:
    C:\Program files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins

  3. On Linx Machine:

    This might be the part
    /usr/lib/firefox-addons/searchplugins


    NOTE: Do keep a copy before changing the original google.xml file which came with the Firefox installation. So that you can change back to the old Google favicon in the search box if you want too.
  4. And then replace the file google.xml with the new downloaded google.xml file.
  5. Save the file and then restart Firefox.
  6. How cool does that look…smile_shades

Thanks,
And a Very Happy New Year to you too...

Yes I know my blog does not open properly on IE, that might be because of few plug-in's which I have used, which is only supported in Firefox. But thanks for the information
