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 would suggest using two different bookmarks/search engines.

Le sigh. Same search engine. Wikipedia. EN and FI.

I do know that I can add both in Waterfox.

en.wikipedia.org and fi.wikipedia.org have the same search engine so ho the heck am I going to change that? Different bookmarks. Please. "Have you tried turning your computer off and on again?"

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.
