I decided I wanted to add Instructables to Firefox's Quick Search bar. Which I guess gives me the perfect opportunity to post my first Instructable.

I'm running Firefox v33.0 however I'm sure this will work with later releases, and possibly earlier releases.

NOTE: I've only tested this on Windows 7/8/10 & Ubuntu.

Step 1: Add Instructables to Quick Search

First: Go to Instructables.com

Second: Add Instructables to the quick search bar.

It's that easy to add it in.

Then all you have to do from there is...

Step 2: Start Using Instructables in Quick Search

It's that easy!

Disclaimer:

When you search on Instructables you'll go tot he search bar at the top and search something like, "free energy".

The url should look something like this...

https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/?sort=none&q=free+energy

But when using this Firefox search option you will get...

https://www.instructables.com/tag/?q=free+energy&limit:type:id=on&limit:type:forumTopic=on&limit:type:comment=on&limit:type:forumComment=on&limit:type:guideComment=on&limit:type:user=on&limit:type:group=on

One thing I noticed is I got a lot of unrelated results of that in which I was searching with this search option; however it's still pretty handy, and I hope this has become a help for you.

This is a very useful idea. Soon, the editors at HQ will be using this exclusively.
