  • I missed Opera's trivial search of google (Mozilla requires you to click out of the location bar then hit 'search', piece o' crap). This is nifty. Thanks!

      > Mozilla requires you to click out of the location bar

      Mozilla->Preferences->Navigator->Smart Browsing

      check Enable Internet Keywords

      click "More Information"

      it will explain how to edit your user.js to have google as your "keywords" server (basically, type some words in the URL bar and enter to search google)

      Note: this fails when Mozilla thinks your terms include a URL. Due to but 79655 [mozilla.org] a search for 'Mr. T.' will fail because Mozilla sees the dot and thinks you're looking for some domain name. However, all is not lost.

      Mozilla->Preferences->Navigator->Smart Browsing

      check automatically complete text in location bar

      click advanced

      check show search engine (and whatever else you like) click OK

      go back to Mozilla->Preferences->Navigator->Internet Search

      select Google from the menu, click OK

      Now if you know Internet Keywords won't get triggered because you have a dot in your query, you can just arrow down to search google. You don't have to take your hands off the keyboard :)

      (searchling is still cool to have, but the location bar is easier for me when I'm already in Mozilla)
