Is there a replacement for keyword.URL?

Posted

I know it was remove sometime around version 20.

(For gods sake why springs to mind. I am genuinely curious if someone can answer that question.)

Since then I used the "Keyword.URL Hack!" to bring it back.

Now I find upon a clean install the addon has been removed. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/keywordurl-hack/)

What I want to achieve is having the search bar use the duckduck go search as normal and the address bar use "I'm Feeling Ducky" ("http://duckduckgo.com/&q=! "). I used to be able to do this like this: https://duck.co/forum/thread/1910/i-m-feeling-ducky-firefox-address-bar

Now I can't

I've had this function since firefox version 1.5 or so with google and google I'm feeling lucky and I have edited the keyword.URL since version 4 to keep it.

Seriously it's brilliant. Type ebay > go to ebay, Type facebook > go to facebook etc. for any common site. If I want to search I use the searchbar and get a list of results. Perfect.

Can anyone help me get this back?

Thanks

However I couldn't find anything related to I'm feeling ducky.

Hope it helps though.
