Query String for Use in Firefox? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have set up Firefox to send highlighted text upon use of a right mouse.

    For example, the query string for Bing search is: "http://www.bing.com/?q="

    And the query string for Bing maps is: "http://www.bing.com/maps/?q="

    And the query string for Google translate is: "http://translate.google.com/?q="

    I have tried a number of query strings for Bing Translate, but can't get any of them to work.  The text to be translated is correctly carried through to the URL, but the search box is not populated with it.  I have tried both: "http://www.bing.com/translator/default.aspx?q=" and "http://www.bing.com/translator/?q=" and both failed.

    How can I do this?  Thank you.
