Yes, there is. The best way is to make a personal wrapper for the script:


#!/bin/sh perl $1 $2 > ~/.mozilla/firefox/YOURPROFILE/searchplugins/$1.x +ml


REM windows batch file perl %1 %2 > PATH\TO\YOUR\PROFILE\searchplugins\%1.xml

[holli]: it's not always possible to do a complete rewrite without cutting off some pigtails
[Discipulus]: indeed! new firefox seems poorer: many tab crash, and you open this link in FF?
[Discipulus]: problem scrolling even main page..;=(
