Add 110+ Searches with termBlaster

termBlasterIf just a handful of searching up in your search bar doesn’t cut it for you or if you want to remove your search bar to reclaim space, termBlaster is the super searching extention that will have you looking for things you never knew you could look.

Here is a little more about the Firefox extension from the developers:

termBlaster adds the ability to perform searches from your right-click (or context) menu using one of 110+ websites that range from search engines to encyclopedias to translators. Website lists are in XML format and can be modified in Places.

One would think that speed could come into play when trying to navigate through the search menus but you can do so quickly with little or no effort at all. All you do is highlight and right click the word you want to search and then select the search engine you want to use. They have shopping searches, review searches, torrent searches, map searches, too many to name.

Correct the Dictionary in Firefox

I have screwed up a number of times and have added words the dictionary that I wanted to correct the spelling of. Is there anyway to make sure this misspelled word doesn’t show up as a word any longer? Yes, you can edit your corrections to the dictionary. Just look here:

Documents and Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\.default\

Now find the file called “persdict.dat”. Open that up in a text editor, delete the words you don’t want in there, and then restart Firefox. You should be good to go.

Block the Naughty Words

A few four letter words got you down? I do not think you will have to worry about it on this Web site, but on others you might have a problem with curse words getting on your screen. If this happens to you and you don’t want it to, you need the Profanity Filter! This script filters profanity from Web sites.

To use this script you must have Greasemonkey for Firefox installed.
