CBM Manager

Firefox add-on to search for selected text (e.g. name, email address or phone number) in a web page using CBM Manager or your favorite search engines. A registered account is required to use CBM Manager.


Notifications, Downloads, History and Bookmarks are now optional permissions. They are disabled by default. If you'd like to show notifications and/or save your list of search engines to your local disk, or search your history or bookmarks from the Omnibox, then open the extensions manager, select Context Search and, under the Permissions tab, enable the appropriate permissions.

To open search results in a new private window, in the extensions manager, allow Context Search to "Run in Private Windows".

How does it work

  1. Select some text on a webpage
  2. Right click (or Alt-click) on a selection
  3. A context menu (or a grid of icons) appears, displaying the list of search engines chosen in the extension's preferences
  4. Click on the search engine with which you’d like to search for the selected text
The search results will appear as defined in the extension's preferences page.
