I noticed that you are using OpenSearch for Firefox in URL

However, when I try to install it on my computer, I get an error message.

I searched on the web and found the following

Please make it work soon because it will be very helpful

Thanx a lot

    I have created this file to be able to add Search forum to the Search Providers of Internet Explorer 7. Don't know if the format used by IE7 is the same as used with Firefox.

    Firefox 2 has a similar functionality.

    The correct xml file for firefox (does not apply for ie7!!) is
    <OpenSearchDescription xmlns="" xmlns:moz="">
    <ShortName> Forum for Firefox</ShortName>
    <Description>Search the Forum</Description>
    <Image width="16" height="16" type="image/"></Image>
    <Url type="text/html" method="post" template="">
    <Param name="search_keywords" value="{searchTerms}"/>
    <Param name="search_fields" value="all"/>
    <Param name="search_terms" value="all"/>
    <Param name="show_results" value="topics"/>

    Mind you that there can be more than one xml files for a site. Firefox will display both, but only one will finally work.

    I tried it at home and it works like a charm.
