I like the new Google search results layout, but it has killed the Greasemonkey script I use to display results in multiple columns. Is there another script or plugin I can use that is compatible with the new layout? [more inside]

When I search for something by typing keywords into the Firefox address bar, it directs me to Yahoo search results. It used to function more like Google's "I'm feeling lucky" option, and I'd like to get that functionality back instead of these incessant Yahoo search results. [more inside]

I absolutely love Firefox Smart Keyword Searches.
Beyond just the default preinstalled ones,
I also use custom ones for easynews, rottentomatoes, metafilter, etc. Here's my question: Is it possible to launch these from the command line in OS X? For example, ideally I would enter (into a bash prompt) rt apple
to open a new tab in firefox with a search result for "Apple" in rotten tomatoes, like this.
. Similarly, I would like to be able to enter easy creative commons
to have it launch the keyword bookmark "easy" which searches easynews global for "creative commons"
. Is this possible to do, preferably without using Applescript or Automator?

Why do my Firefox quick searches not work anymore? I used to be able to to type "keyword + search terms" in my Firefox address bar to do quick searches, but now all it does is the "I'm feeling lucky" search instead. I can't see any options to turn this on or off, and can't find anything on Google that looks relevant to this problem.
Any ideas about why this has gone? I'm running Firefox 18.104.22.168 on Windows XP Home SP2, if that's of any use.

Do you know of any Firefox search plug-in that will "search this site" (being the current *websitesite*) for text entered in the search box? [more inside]

I'm using FireFox 1.07 for Windows XP. Previously, when I typed "dict [word]" into the address bar, FireFox would take me to the dictionary.com definition for [word]. Now typing in the same command just takes me to the first result of a Google search for "dict [word]," the same as if I typed anything into the address bar. Recently all my Firefox bookmarks disappeared as well. I haven't updated Firefox or changed anything that I know of. What happened, and how do I restore the old functionality?

Firefox won't let resize the search bar. I've followed these instructions
, and nothing. Any ideas? I'm on XP using 1.0 Preview.
