Spurred by the pain of highlighting a product name, copying and pasting it in to main bb.com store site I decided to do a little research on a tool.

Go down load this *****://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1399

Upon restarting FF get to the options page using either method below.
(highlight text > right click >find using... > Options)
(Tools up top > Add-ons > Advanced URL Builder > Options button)

At this screen place bb.com (or any name you want to fit) in the Name.

In the URL spot add this;
http://search.bodybuilding.com/search?q=#*#*#&btnG=Search&site=wwwbodybuilding&output=xml_no_dtd&client=wwwbodybuilding&proxystylesheet=wwwbodybuilding&getfields=description&filter=0
(right click, copy link location)
Don't forget to click add

Next, go to the Misc tab of the options and make it look like this.

First, the green dot on "new tab" will open the search query in a new tab.

This add-on will only place the highlighted text at the end of a specified URL enless there is a Variable Substition text string present in the box and a match text string in the sepcified URL from the URLs tab.

By adding #*#*# to the bottom spot and then in the proper spot of the URL(Variable Substitution) firefox will now fill in the #*#*# with your highlighted word/words. This is because bb.com has other variables at the end. Filters and such.

Once you get all that done click ok highlight the text on the next line
RPM
Right click it now, roll over find using, then click the name you put for bb.com

Wiki is very very simple.

Add the name
Add this url http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
click add, click ok.

Somethings like bb.com forum search I could not figure out, but its not a big deal seeing as we are in the forums as it is.

I hope everyone can make use of and enjoy this tool =) feed back if you do not mind.

Last shameful bump :(

I'm new to these forums and supplements (beyond whey protein) and I think it's a very helpful tool.
