Re: How to get get real, custom search engines on Firefox Mobile
The search plugins from addons.mozilla.com can be installed directly in Firefox mobile, but - to my knowledge - not the ones from Mycroft. The advantage of using the self-made Shortmark search plugin it that it allows adding any search engine - not only the ones from addons.mozilla.com. Furthermore, you can import all custom search engines from an existing Desktop Firefox version to Shortmark, and access them directly by using the familiar abbreviations in the Firefox Mobile search bar - e.g., gb for Google Book search.
The process of creating this very useful function would be far easier if www.shortmarks.com was added as a downloadable search plugin from addons.mozilla.com. As said, search plugins cannot be imported to Mobile Firefox directly from Mycroft.
