Consider using the search box next to the address bar in Firefox to search on Wikipedia directly without explicitly having to go to the search box within a Wikipedia page. Within the Firefox search box, change the provider to Wikipedia

Access Wikipedia Search Engine within Firefox

For subsequent searches, click Alt+Enter after you enter a keyword within the search box instead of just Enter, to view results in a new tab.
