Firefox with MSN icon The Firefox web browser is now available in an MSN-customised version for users who prefer Microsoft's Bing search engine and want MSN as their home page. The new version comes a year after the Mozilla and Microsoft partnership produced Firefox with Bing.

Firefox with MSN is available from and offers two options: one is a custom version with Bing set as the search engine and MSN as the home page, while the other is an add-on which configures an existing Firefox with the same settings. Both versions include a MSN theme, add msnNOW as a Firefox AppTab, and have quick links to MSN sites for "real-time" news, entertainment and sport updates.

Firefox with MSN joins the nearly 20 customised versions of the open source browser that are distributed by companies; AOL, Twitter, Yahoo, and Russian service Yandex, for example, all have custom Firefox versions.
