User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:57.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/57.0
Build ID: 20171019140425

Steps to reproduce:

There is no support for webextensions to change the default (or add a new) search engine using the manifest API.

"chrome_settings_overrides": {
    "search_provider": {
     "name": "DefaultSearch,
     "search_url": "https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}",
     "is_default": true
    }

I can confirm that this feature is not yet implemented on android, it is only on desktop. 

As you can see, it is registered only at browser level https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/components/extensions/schemas/chrome_settings_overrides.json  

The extension used for testing was: https://addons.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtubesearch/ 

Please see the attached video.
