It says:

“Firefox could not download the search plugin from: https://www.qwant.comopensearch.xml/

You can add a custom search engine to FF desktop if you don’t want an add-on or extension.

about:config -> create browser.urlbar.update2.engineAliasRefresh (boolean), set to true. Then go to settings there should be an “Add” button:

(There won’t be a favicon though.)

To have a full integration of that engine in Firefox. I recommend you the official addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/qwantcom-for-firefox/

on the desktop:
visit quant.com
you need the search bar toolbar that you may have removed from customizing the space next to the address bar. start typing something in. it says:“this time, search with…” and then there are icon tiles for engines. if its a new search engine then there should be an icon to add the search engine of the current page.
after you are done you can then remove the search bar if you prefer.

You can also right-click on the URL-bar when you’re on https://www.qwant.com and then there should be an entry 'Add “Qwant” '.

Just tried it, too, and I get the same error message. Seems to be a bug on their side. In that error message, there is a slash missing between “.com” and “opensearch.xml”, so that’s probably why it can’t download it.
I’ve tried to contact them via their Mastodon-account, but no idea, if they check that inbox (or if it even is their official account, since they don’t seem to mention Mastodon on their webpage).

I would recommend following the instructions of @blue_penquin@lemmy.ml or @mickie@lemmy.ml for now.

I just tried it. I’m getting the same error. You could try one of these, they seem to work for me: https://mycroftproject.com/search-engines.html?name=qwant

I don’t know anything about the website, but I believe I found it somewhere in Firefox settings, though it doesn’t seem to be there anymore.

I am using an add-on called “qwant basic”. With that I could also add it to my list in the search engine settings. At least, on regular desktop FF which I assume you are using.
