Is there a SearchO add-on equivalent for Firefox?

I use Chrome and truly enjoy the ease of search the SearchO extension from Diigo allows. Is there a similar add-on available for Firefox? The ability to select a word or phrase, the right [control]-click for searching within any one of many search engines is sweet.

    Here is the addon compatible to firefox 9.Restartless context search :
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/restartless-context-search

    It searches from the context menu within the available search englines.So if you want more options, use this addon also:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-to-search-bar

    (Still, Research word is the best for firefox, and somehow I am using it on firefox 9. try portable version.)

    Research word :
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/research-word

    Works on older versions of firefox 3.6.
    Use portable firefox or epic browser to make it work.
    Or ask the developer to make it compatible with firefox 9.

    Hello, I do not think there is add-on similar to SearchO for Firefox.  If you are insterested, you could try the following workaround.  It works on Firefox 9.0.1:

    -- download the add to Search Bar add on for firefox:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-to-search-bar/

    -- restart firefox
    -- navigate to SearchO site:  http://www.searcho.com/
    -- on search bar of SearchO, right click on mouse and click
    -- on options that pop up, select add to Search Bar option
    -- click on ok
    -- now it is just a matter of setting searchO as your default search engine
    -- voila you can use searchO in firefox

    Let me know how it goes.
