Instructables Lookup Firefox Extension Answered

Does anyone here have experience with Firefox extensions? I think this would be useful.

When a word is highlighted and right-clicked, on the context menu, there would be an option of "Lookup in Instructables." When clicked, it would open a new tab for Instructables, and run a search for the highlighted word. It would be similar to Wikipedia Lookup, but for iBles, not Wikipedia. Is anyone up for trying this? I know nothing about how to do it.

. Yep. Plug something like 'Search Instructables for "$" ' in one of the Text: boxes and https://www.instructables.com/tag/?q=$&limit%3Atype%3Aid=on&type%3Aid=on&type%3Auser=on&type%3Acomment=on&type%3Agroup=on&type%3AforumTopic=on&sort=none in the matching URL: box of the Options for DictionarySearch (Tools:Addons after installing)

I just now got around to trying it, and it works. Thanks! Do you mind if I make a quick little Instructable, or would you like to do it, since you figured it out?
