Google Desktop and Firefox

Some may have figured this out already, or use the GDS install tool at (which also contains instruction on how to do it manually). There is an easier way than this (the files are actually part of the Google Desktop install):

  • Go to C:\Program Files\Google\Google Desktop Search
  • Copy the files GoogleDesktopMozilla.src and GoogleDesktopMozilla.png
  • Go to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins
  • Then paste the files into this folder

You can also create a batch script to do it as well:

@echo off
cd "%ProgramFiles%\Google\Google Desktop Search\"
echo Copying GoogleDesktopMozilla.src
copy GoogleDesktopMozilla.src "%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins\"
echo Copying GoogleDesktopMozilla.png
copy GoogleDesktopMozilla.png "%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins\"
