Hi there, i wonder if we can create a custom search bar only to add "keyword" (with quotation marks) before searched terms?

I am using address bar to search on google. Regular search result is coming like this:

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox&q=question

what i want is:

https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox&q="pre-defined+keyword"+question so pre-defined keyword will added automatically to the search

You can use a keyword search and create a bookmark with a keyword (e.g. 'g' or 'gp') set that has this term as a prefix.

Thank you for your answer cor-el, i beleive it's not what i need. I don't want to rewrite anything while searching this. Thats why i think i need a seperate search bar.

To use this keyword, you type the keyword in the location bar and append a space and your search term(s). The keyword is replaced by the text you have in the location field of the bookmark and '%s' is replaced by the terms you have appended after the keyword, so you do not rewrite anything.

If you want a search engine that appears in the row of icons (or can be made the default) instead of a bookmark, there is an add-on you could consider using to define your own:
