Firefox Search Bar Plugins

Mozilla Firefox comes with some pre-installed search plugins and some websites provide their users with a plugin for firefox search bar. However, there are also lots of websites on the net that don’t give you any plugin to make your search easier. Sometimes I have to use Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary to look up a word that I don’t know but copying the unknown word and putting it into the search box of Cambridge Dictionary seems too painful to me, especially if I am reading a long sophisticated text. So I created some search plugins for different websites using a perl script. (See Screenshots below) Below you can find some of them. In order to use them in your firefox browser, you need to right-click and save them to your computer. Then, Windows user should put them in:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins\

And, Linux users should put them in:

/home/YOURHOME/.mozilla/firefox/YOURPROFILE.default/searchplugins

Then, you need to restart your browser.

By the way, all the credit goes to ccn. Without his script, these plugins would not exist.
