Chrome allows me to search from the address bar using a search engine's keyword. How can I do the same in Firefox?

Open the Bookmarks Manager in Firefox and Add a New Bookmark. Add the URL as:

Now select the entry in the bookmark editor and click the Properties button. Now enter a keyword, for example: gg.
The %s in the URL will be replaced with the text after the keyword.
Alternatively, right-click on a search field and select the menu option "Add a Keyword for this Search...". The subsequent dialog will allow you to specify the keyword to use.
