Created especially for Wikipedia editors, this add-on makes it easy to find media on related to your article without having to laboriously open a new tab, then open wikimedia, then type in a search term ... simply highlight some relevant text in your editing page (either in the editing box or elsewhere in the page), right click and select "Search for media related to the highlighted text on Wikimedia Commons". A new tab will open in with your search results.
Risk impact

Wikimedia Commons Search is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Wikimedia Commons Search has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
