Can I create commonly used text webpage searches and save as individual toolbar buttons?

Posted

I do my local golf club bookings for my groups and we have specific time slots we like to book on Wednesday and Saturday but competion is really fierce and just opening that webpage booking day and scrolling down the page to our preferred time to click is so competitive that someone else often grabs our time slot. First come first serve.

Is there an add-on or extension that would make this search task quicker, like being able to create toolbar buttons that I can click the desired time button that would search for say 11:16, 11.21 etc. ?

We tend to play at different times on eaxch day we play.

Easy solution, I just click on the top RoboForm icon and it removes RoboForm toolbar at bottom, enable Find Bar, search page as required, then click RoboForm top icon again to show bottom RF toolbar.

You can possibly create a text file with the required data and open this page in a pinned tab for easy access. Then you copy the time data you need to the clipboard and go to the tab with the bookings page and open the Find bar (Ctrl+F) and paste the text you previously copied to the clipboard in the find bar search field. If you know about JavaScript then you can possibly create a bookmarklet to show this data in a prompt pop-up and copy it there to the clipboard. I'm not aware of a way to open the Find bar with a specific query although Firefox will use a query used on another tab if the Find bar hasn't been used yet. In that case you can select the text on the pinned tab and open the find bar. Then you can open the booking page and initialize a search via F3.

Hi,

Thanks for responding, appreciated.

After opening the golf time booking sheet, I do have a few minutes waiting for the day to be booked to count down to 0:00, then it opens that day and shows the time slots available.

Just wondering with the standard Find Bar (Ctrl+F), would it be possible to display the bottom Find Bar toolbar at all times.

The other issue that I have is I usually have RoboForm toolbar displayed at the bottom, if I enable Find Bar (Ctrl+F) , it sits under RoboForm toolbar so I have to disable RoboForm toolbar to access the Find Bar.

I believe there's no way to reposition either Find Bar or RoboForm toolbars.
