vBulletin search plugin for Firefox

Couldn't find it via the search engine here, but has anyone created a search plug-in for Firefox (like these) that would search a specific vBulletin-powered message board from the browser itself? I'd think once you had the original code in place, modifying on a per-forum basis would simple.

Download this one here and modify it. It's very easy.

Change the logo to what you want and open up the .src file in wordpad and make changes. Voila!~

I think you can do one up for your site, submit it there, and get users to just install it from their site.

Here's how

Thanks for the example. Unfortunately, doesn't seem to work as easily with vBulletin... namely, passing the search variables right into vB's search engine.

I switched out the search URL to vBulletin's search URL, however when used, the Firefox plug-in just brings you to the main search page in vBulletin. I'm looking for a way to populate that search and execute it directly from Firefox (like other search plug-ins). Am I just not including the right path here?

Here's the code to the plugin:

I think the path is right, but not the <input name> portions ...

One of my mods (pentapenguin) made a customised version that's really easy to install and users just need to click on a link to install it to the quick search (and we haven't had any problems with it).

Instructions:
1. create a folder in the /forum/ directory called mozillasearch e.g. yoursite.com/forum/mozillasearch/

2. in the attached aboho.src file, replace all of my urls with your own forum urls and then upload the files to the mozillasearch folder.

3. Edit Styles & Templates->Styles & Templates->Edit Template->Footer

Find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

add after

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's all, Mozilla/firefox users will see the link in the footer, other users wont. Of course you may want to rename the files to suit your forum and you will want to use your own icon, just remember to update all instances of aboho.png and aboho.src
