Firefox Search Bookmarks

In Firefox you can add a search keyword to prepared bookmarks to use tags for searching specific sites.

For example, you can store https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Search&search=%s as a bookmark Wikipedia Search with the keyword w, you can then type into the address bar w Test and it will redirect you to the Wikipedia search page searching for Test.

In the URL, the %s is the search text placeholder. You can use any URL and prepare it as a search bookmark.

Search Links

You can drag and drop these into your bookmarks, or open them and then store them, adding a keyword.
