I frequently use this web site for searching movie subtitles. What I do is to open the page, navigate to the relevant search box, and type in the movie name in it.

I want to speed up this process by defining a new search provider to achieve this from Firefox's built-in search box.

How can I add this search to Firefox's built-in search engine list?

You can use the add-on Add to Search Bar for this purpose.

Thanks and +1 for your answer. One more question: This does not work on cdcovers.cc. I click on "Add to search bar..." but nothing happens. Any clues? – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Feb 1 '11 at 10:09

Looking at the source, the search on that site seems to make heavy use of javascript, which may be the cause of the problem. This ( developer.mozilla.org/en/… ) may help you in writing an OpenSearch plugin for that site, otherwise there are some search plugins for cdcovers.cc listed here (mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=cdcovers ). – Matthieu Cartier Feb 1 '11 at 10:23
    
The links you gave seem useful. Thanks again. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Feb 1 '11 at 11:44
    
I used this link and it created cdcovers.cc search provider properly. Case closed. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Feb 1 '11 at 11:48

You might also consider smart keywords search which is built into firefox. Essentially you right click in the search box on a website and select "add a keyword for this search". Set a keyword. Now you can search that site using the keyword followed by your search term in the address bar of the web browser.

Thanks and +1 for your answer, but this does not work on cdcovers.cc. When I right click on the search box, "Add a keyword for this search" does not show up. Even though I add a keyword from the "bookmark properties" window for this site, it performs the search on Google. Any clues? – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Feb 1 '11 at 10:10
    
@Mehper I wish I knew ): – James T Feb 1 '11 at 11:01
