Yahoo Search engine.

Postby wyrdoak » 08 Jul 2015 18:40

Old habits die hard, I've been using the Yahoo search engine for quite a while and haven't been able to find it for Firefox.
Is not pretty but I grew my own.

Code: Select all

<SearchPlugin xmlns="http://www.mozilla.org/2006/browser/search/">
<ShortName>Yahoo</ShortName>
<Description>Yahoo</Description>
<InputEncoding>UTF-8</InputEncoding>
<Image width="16" height="16">"file:///home/wyrdoak/Documents/yahoo_icon.jpg"</Image>
<Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="https://search.yahoo.com/search?q={searchTerms}">
   <Param name="t" value="lm"/>
   <Param name="q" value="{searchTerms}"/>
</Url>
<SearchForm>https://search.yahoo.com/search?q={searchTerms}</SearchForm>
</SearchPlugin>
Instead of icon data I just used a internal link to an icon. Then just threw it in file:///opt/firefox/browser/searchplugins/yahoo!xml. It works :lol:
