Use Google's "I'm feeling lucky" from Firefox' address bar [OpenDNS]

This trick enables you to regain the ability to use Google’s “I’m feeling lucky”-functionality on the fly from Firefox 3’s address bar, as was natively possible in Firefox 2. To accommodate this, we’ll use OpenDNS’ network shortcuts. Once configured, you’ll be able to type stuff like “goto drupal” and be taken to drupal.org right away.

image Note: As advertised, you need to be using OpenDNS for this hack to work. If you don’t know what OpenDNS is, you may want to read up on it, since it’s a great thing to have.

  1. @TravisYou should be able to download FF2 somewhere on the Mozilla website. Otherwise, try Googling for it, since many download-sites hold on to files for a long time.

  2. @TravisCheck out http://www.filehippo.com/download_firefox/. In addition to the latest release of Firefox, Filehippo also gives you the opportunity to download any of the previous versions of Mozilla’s browser.Be aware that Mozilla’s support cycle for FF2 won’t last for a long time. If I’m not mistaken, Mozilla is planning to actively support [and patch] FF2 for 6 months after the RTM of Firefox 3. After that, you’re left with an out of date browser, after which you’ll be compelled to upgrade, or move to another one entirely. Kind regards,Ace
