Installing YubNub in Firefox - detailed instructions

Someone wanted instructions for installing YubNub in the Firefox search bar. Here's how:

1. To install YubNub, first go to: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=yubnub&opensearch=yes

2. Click "YubNub". You will be prompted to add YubNub to your search bar.

3. Click OK.

4. Click on your search bar to change the search engine from Google to YubNub (the blue "y")

5. And you're done! Now you can type the various YubNub commands into the search bar: g turtles, gim turtles, tec turtles, yim turtles, etc.

The search URL changed. This one now works: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/download.html?name=yubnub&sherlock=yes&submitform=Search

WARNING! At the moment, this link will find a search plugin that looks like yubnub, behaves like yubnub, but is from a site called anonymouse.org and ads adverts to the pages loaded.

If you search for yubnub on the mozilla site, you can still find the real one

Thanks for spotting that. I've updated the link.

I thought I'd note that there's a couple of minor changes at Mycroft:
1) plugin is now by Jason Karns
2) it uses Yubnub's mascot, not a blue "y"

Kudos to everyone that has created versions of the plugin -- it has been the first thing I added to new Firefox installs since very early 2006!
