How To Sync Search Box Content In Firefox


SearchBox Sync is a small add-on for Firefox that updates the search box content every time you make a search on any popular search engine(Google, Yahoo, Live, Amazon, Wikipedia, YouTube, eBay, etc). You must be thinking how it’s helpful? But once you get used to it, you will find it very useful in certain circumstances. It saves us from typing the search terms over and over again.
