    Yes, this is possible.

    But does you mean F-Secure Search (toolbar) or just F-Secure Search as Search page (like search.f-secure.com)?


    If just F-Secure Search (as search provider) - so.. you able to use it with any of browsers. And able to set up as search provider - if browser supported javascript (and design for "support providers").


    if F-Secure Search for desktop installations (toolbar including) - so... you able to use it too.

    If your browser is Internet Explorer (as default one browser / system browser for opening web-pages) and Search configured there.  You have probably two workarounds to get it under Firefox:


    --> Manual install extension for Firefox (from F-Secure Online Safety folder about Safe Search).

    Like "extension"-file re-transfer to Firefox page about extensions. Should be trigger for installation extension.

    And enable it.


    --> Re-change default browser to Firefox. And restart system. It should to trigger F-Secure prompt for Safe Search installation automatically (with your setting).

    You able to re-change default browser back to your previous (after this steps).


    Troubles with this workarounds - potentially any updates for toolbar/extension should be upgraded manually.


    Sorry if you ask about something else.

    And sorry for my long reply.
