However, a Google-like keyword search would be far more useful. For example, sometimes I want to recall a recent Google search. I can press Ctrl+H and type "google" into the quicksearch bar, but I may need to narrow it down further. Say I want a search about Linux. So I type in "google linux", expecting to see all Google searches related to linux. Instead I get Zarro results. The HTML title of the Google result page is "Google Search: search terms"--in this case, "Google Search: linux image organizer"--but when I type in "google linux", I get nothing. Instead I have to type in "google search linux". That, obviously, is counter-intuitive. A keyword search would be far more useful here. Then I could simply type "google whatever" and get all recent Google searches that included the "whatever" keyword, and I could also narrow it down by adding another keyword.

I believe that the Enhanced History Manager may offer this ability. You can get that at http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=504 . Either way, this will probably be covered by bug 208795.
I hope not. That bug wants a lot more than a simple change from an exact phrase search to a keyword search.
(In reply to comment #2) > I hope not. That bug wants a lot more than a simple change from an exact phrase > search to a keyword search. That bug covers a lot, so odds are this functionality will probably be included. Either way, I simply marked it as "depends on". One could argue it may also be a "blocks" relationship... but it all depends on which is fixed first.
Apparently Firefox 3 fixed this.
