You can do this. Control + L, Tab, Down Arrow several times. I'm on FF34.

I'm upsed that in FF34 I cannot change search provider and keep the new one. For example Control+k, Control + Down Arrow Key until I switch to DuckDuckGo. After this all searches will use DDG. On FF34 this does not work anymore. Each new search uses the default search provider.
