Firefox Search Plugins

I created 4 simple search plugins for Firefox for anyone who is interested.

  • wikiubuntutext.src – This searches text at
  • wikiubuntutitle.src – This searches titles at
  • ubuntuhelptext.src – This searches text at
  • ubuntuhelptitle.src – This searches titles at

Download the archived file to a directory and then extract it. After extraction, copy the files to /usr/share/firefox/searchplugins and enjoy!

    Very cool!

    Oddly enough I just created a search plugin for SAP’s Developer Network Forums (before I read your post, honestly). If any of your readers are interested please check out

    I also put a link to your post from my blog as well.

  • You might want to note for the future that there’s an Add to Search Bar extension which can programmatically create new search plugins for any search box.
