I have Brave Version 1.37.111 Chromium: 100.0.4896.79 (Official Build) (64-bit) installed on Windows 10. I am trying to add a Searx instance as my default search engine but I can’t seem to achieve this.
To do this in Brave I:
- Went to brave://settings/searchEngines
- Clicked the ‘add’ button in the ‘Other search engines’ section
- Set Search Engine as ‘SearX’, set Keyword as ‘:x’ and URL as ‘https://searx.tiekoetter.com/search?q=%’
- This successfully added Searx to my list of Search Engines in the ‘Other search engines’ section.
However, when I click on the 3 dots icon for that entry, ‘Make default’ is greyed out and unavailable. Edit and Delete are available. Please see this pic (hosted on imgur) to see what I have done.
I have also tried performing a search on the SearX instance page and then checking the engines list. This also does not work. I have also tried restarting the browser.
Is there something I’m doing wrong? How do I resolve this?
