Doubling click a word open a search bubble - now gone

Hello, I recently installed a fresh FF 115.0.2 (after years of importing my old profile). I noticed a really nice feature, when double clicking a word, a search bubble would open with 4 icons (google, google maps, wikipedia and something else) and you could click one of them and it would open a new tab and search for the selected text.

Today I noticed it is missed. I didn't upgrade FF, I didn't install any new add-on and I didn't even close FF since the last time it worked.

Any ideas how to get it back? And how to add other providers to this very nice feature?

Thanks

It sounds like an extension like Swift Selection Search. Note that extensions need permission to run in private windows or permanent private mode.

It is very similar in looks but I am sure I never installed this extensions.

edit: another add-on I had did this. Selection Context Search
