We have a content search webpart in our masterpage. Since the application is developed by third party .. i dont have any clue how to edit it :( I want to edit the query of the webpart and change it in such a way that it points to my new url.

When i try to edit page , those webparts are not in editable format.

Please guide how to edit it.

How it looks like in SharePoint Designer editable mode? Whether there is in masterpage file any similar tag <WebControls:ContentBySearchWebPart/>?
