Wrote a quick "How To" for the FAQ section then realized it's been closed for 5 years. Anyways... still good info for those that don't know about this Firefox configuration.




How to add shortcut searches to Firefox
  1. Go to Newegg.com.
  2. In its search bar, type a word ("intel" for example), and search.
  3. Click Bookmarks->Bookmark this Page or press Ctrl+D.
  4. Click Done.
  5. Click Bookmarks, find the bookmark you just made, right click it, and select Properties.
  6. In the Location box, find your search term ("intel" from #2) and replace it with %s.
  7. In the Keyword box, create your shortcut keyword. In my animated gif, I use egg for my keyword.
  8. Click Save to close the Properties window.

Now anytime you want to search for OCZ Vertex 2 at Newegg, you can simply type in your location bar "egg ocz vertex 2." This method works with virtually any search engine, including Amazon, YouTube, Best Buy, Google, and more.

Syntax in Location Bar: <keyword> <search term>

Very simple process but it works wonders!

Other helpful shortcuts:
Ctrl+L for quick use of the location bar
Ctrl+K for quick use of the Firefox search bar
