Two separete searches for Wikipedia

Posted

So. My first language isn't english, and I would like to add search to firefox that takes me to the english version and another that would take me to finnish version of wiki. Is there any way of doing this? I lose the "add search" button for fin if I add eng version and vice versa. Pyro F.

I have both of them bookmarked and one of them in search. I know there is a way to exploit, hack something in Firefox so I can add both. it will be just one of those days when mods say "Look away normals it's just one of our tech savy firebirds helping it's youngling. Oh good look away now it's about to get messy."

Firefox does not keep those search addons but they just fade away. Latest update did this.
