Update 20030929: This URL searches for E2 nodes via Google (less taxing on E2's server): http://www.google.com/search?q="%s%40Everything2.com"+ site:everything2.com&btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky

You can search Everything from a Mozilla location bar by using a feature known as Custom Keywords*. Here's how to set one up:
  1. Create a new bookmark in Bookmarks.
  2. Access the new bookmark's properties, and set the location field to http://www.everything2.com/?node=%s and set a keyword to, let's say, e2 in the keyword field. Title of the link can be anything.
  3. Press OK to apply changes.
  4. Be careful of bug #144875 - A keyword name cannot be the same name as a bookmark name for this to work.
Once you've set this up, try typing this into the location bar (without the parenthesis) and hit ENTER:
e2 (your search query here)
You can conveniently select the location bar without using a mouse by pressing the Ctrl+L keyboard shortcut for Windows (Alt+L or Command+L for other platforms).
