I'm looking to migrate from IE8 to FF3.6 but dearly miss the following scenario: Highlight a text the right click on it and chose from different search providers ie amazon, ebay, google.

For the moment, I only have Search Google for and it doesn't work in forms.

Appreciate any help, Josh

Thank you, TXGuy!

I've installed the addon Context Search 0.4.5 and no only it searches highlighted text but even text from forms can be used as well, thanks a lot! Sorry for being such a noob, am not that familiar with extensions in FF.
