ImageSearch with Bookmarks v1.4.5


Description: . Allows you to search any text selected on a website using your bookmarks in context-menu.
It's faster than using the address bar, and very convenient to use on multiple computers if you already synchronize your bookmarks.

AMO page: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/search-with-bookmarks/

Compatibility: Firefox 44+

License: MIT/X11 License


Main Features:

  • Automatically detects searchable bookmarks saved into your library and adds them into the context-menu.
  • Picks up favicons of websites and shows them on the context-menu when you do a search using the add-on.
  • You can re-order your bookmarks menu via Advanced Settings. ( They are sorted alphabetically by default. )
  • You can display search results on a new or currently active tab.
    If you go with the new tab option, you can additionally decide on displaying search results in a background or immediately activated tab.

Here's what it looks like:

Developer's Comments:

As I specified above, the current version 1.4.5 is only compatible with Firefox v44 and newer versions.
If you have to use an old version of Firefox for some reason, you can install version 1.3.0 version of the add-on which is compatible with old versions down to Firefox v38.


Here's a few sample bookmarks to get you started:

You can add any other websites that come with a search option.
All you need to do is; search on the website with a specific word, copy all the text in address/location bar,
create a bookmark with it, and change that specific word to %s before you save it.
