I use delicious bookmarks with the Firefox plugin and it works great.

My book marks follow me around from computer to computer, are easy to save and find (CTRL-D, CTRL-B), etc.

However, it would be great if I could add other people's booksmarks to my firefox delicious plugin so that when I search for bookmarks I search through theirs as well. Does anyone know if this is possible with the delicious plugin for firefox or if some other social bookmark service offers something like this?

This is addressing the highlighted part in your question.
You can search for bookmarks in your Delicious Network using

http://delicious.com/search?p=SEARCH&chk=&context=network|ID&fr=del_icio_us&lc=1

Where SEARCH is replaced with your search string and,
ID is replaced with your delicious user id.


Here is a raw version,

  1. Right-click on your toolbar and create a New Bookmark
  2. Give it some Name
  3. Copy and paste the string below in the Location
    • Replace the YOURNAME part with your Delicious username
    • And, remove the two newlines I have kept for readability
  4. Save the bookmark
  5. Click on it to try

javascript:UrlX1='http://delicious.com/search?chk=&context=network|YOURNAME
&fr=del_icio_us&lc=1&p=';SrchQry=prompt('Search%20Delicious%20Network','what');
location.href=UrlX1+SrchQry;

When you click on it, a dialogue box will appear with the default search term "what".
You can change this and click OK to fire the search.
It will run the search on the logged in Delicious user's Network.

You can tweak this further... I am not experienced with java scripts.
Would be glad to learn some corrections in this script.
