When we want to search from a page, we open the search page and type keywords in the search bar. It is annoying to repeat the process multiple times. Is there faster way to reduce the repeat?

Firefox bookmarks comes with a convienent function called keyword search. You can try a built-in keyword search now by typing google keyword in the location bar.

To use keyword search in Firefox, save a search page in a bookmark and, in the bookmark editing box, replace search word in url with %s. For example, http://en.wikipedia/wiki/linux becomes http://en.wikipedia/wiki/%s. Then, add a keyword for the search page like this:

bookmark!

You may add as many keywords as you need it. Sites like search engines, wiki pages or online dictionaries are good cadicates for keyword search.
