Hi,

Before the recent update of the search bar, you could select your "current" search engine, and a search for the selected text (right-click on selection) would use that engine.

Now, it seems that you can only search for the selected text using the default engine. If that's correct, this is a major step backwards for me. For instance, I can't have Google as my default search engine, and search for a selected text on eBay!

Or am I missing something?

Thanks!

R.

I find this extension very useful for items selected on web pages. It offers all your search engines with select>right click. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search/?src=search

Thanks, that works! It's a shame you need to use an extension to use this functionality now, though.
