Firefox Question by Rolando on 04-12-2010 at 05:00 AM
How do I add another search thing? I don't want another toolbar, I just want it next to the current one (which is next to the web address)... I want one that searches whatever I put on google, and the other one in youtube (so just different search engines). I can't find how to do this? Surely it's simple enough?

many search engine pages will add an entry to the drop down (when you click on the Google g) For example, WDZ added the forums as a searchable item. Also there is the "manager search engines' option on the dropdown and a link to mozilla's site to find more

I know this, I want to add another box though. So I don't have to change the engine of choice every time if you get what I mean..

cant you just search google in the url bar and have youtube as the search bar? or does the url bar go to what ever the search bar is?

I've google as my homepage, so that isn't that bad, but I wanted an additional searchbar so I can have my torrent site to search and youtube. But meh, I just added icons.. guess it'll have to do. I thought there might be a simple way of doing it and I was missing something.

Get Chrome. The URL bad is one big search bar, type the adress of the site - ie: I type 'msg' it fills in msghelp.net, press tab and it turns into a search bar for that website.

if you are using firefox 3.xx then your url bar will google... just setup the search bar for youtube and when you want to search google open new blank tab and type what you want

In firefox, rightclick in any searchbox on a site, for example the searschbar on http://www.msgpluslive.net/scripts/. Select 'Add a keyword for this search'. It will ask you for a name and location to save it in your bookmarks which won't matter much, just pick a good short keyword. Let's say you use 'scripts' as keyword, you can now use the url bar to search scripts, just type 'scripts psm', hit enter, and you are on the results page for 'psm'.

In Firefox I use bookmarks with keywords to do most of my common searches, I don't remember if some of them are configured by default still, but I think they used to be.
