Changing Flock's Search engine

The easy part is to select google as your default search engine but that only changes the search in the upper right corner. If you right-click on a word to do a search, you will be using yahoo until you change this about:config variable.

Type about:config in the address bar and filter by 'search' and double click on the key shown below.

browser.search.defaulturl
http://www.google.com/search?start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=flock&rls=FlockInc.:en-US:official&q=

or just

http://www.google.com/search?q=



Just a quick note: Taking screenshots on Linux (Ubuntu for me) doesn't work the same as in Windows. In Windows, you just need to do PrtScrn or Alt-PrtScrn and ctrl-v (paste) into the blog post. Under Ubuntu, I have to PrtScrn or Alt-PrtScrn and I get a dialog box to save my screenshot to the desktop. I can't then drag-and-drop the picture into the blog post but have to invoke the Flock photouploader to get the picture into the photobar and then drag it into the blog post.
