In Firefox I can select text and right click to search the selected text in the current search engine is use. This works only for static text; for example any text I select in the textarea (or whatever) box where I am writing this question in cannot be searched using the context menu. This can be done in Google Chrome.

Is there any add-on that makes this available?


Besides other useful functionality, I found that the add-on Context Search provides this as well.
