How to search for something with "site:website.com" prefix?

Posted

I often use Google's feature to limit my search to one website. Sometimes I Google for "something site: website.com" and it is okay. But when I Google "site: website.com something" Firefox search nothing (I assume it tries to treat `site:` as a protocol).

Is there any workaround to fix this?

Hmm, on Android, or on Windows/Mac/Linux?

Windows is working fine for me. However, on Android, I need to use the ? workaround if site: is the first thing in the bar. I mean:

?site:firefox.com

Oh, sorry. It's on Android.

'?' workaround works, thanks! Is it the only option? (I mean, it's not hard to type '?' every time, but it's quite annoying as I use 'site:' quite frequently.

The other options is to tap on the search icon you want to use. This will force the text to be treated as a search.
