Search Selected Text


I would like to operate Firefox by Menus.
Because, from the point of view of cognitive science, I beleive keyboard operation is faster than mouse operation.
Therefor I create this addon to perform search selected text from Edit menu.

You can create your own customized search engine(plugin) by Creating OpenSearch plugins and store it into your "searchplugins" folder.
