Hello, Is it possible to remove the little box (arrow in blue box) when I select a word. I know I can search by word selected with right clic but until firefox 3.6.10 there is this blue box wich allows me to choose a search engine directly by clic. It's practical but sometimes I would prefer not to get it... Is there an option in about:config to remove it? Thanks a lot

That is not a built-in option in Firefox, check you add-ons to see if one of them has added that feature.
