Fix for Addic7ed's broken search

It's been a while since addic7ed's search engine got broken (you have to search twice which is quite annoying).

Today i finally decided to find a workaround and found this nice little add-on called "Redirector". You can redirect the broken search link to a correct link which solves the issue.

Instruction

1. Install "Redirector" addon

Firefox

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirector/

Chrome

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/redirector/ocgpenflpmgnfapjedencafcfakcekcd?hl=en

2. Create new redirect with following details.

Description: Addic7ed Search Fix

Example URL: http://www.addic7ed.com/srch.php?search=Wentworth

Include pattern: http://www.addic7ed.com/srch.php?search=*

Redirect to: http://www.addic7ed.com/search.php?search=$1

Pattern type: Wildcard

3. Save

Enjoy searching on Addic7en :)

Thanks for the info, but it was not working, unless the parameter are changed to:

Example URL: https://www.addic7ed.com/search.php?search=Wentworth

Include pattern: https://www.addic7ed.com/search.php?search=*

Redirect to: https://www.addic7ed.com/srch.php?search=$1

I've been using the search plugin for Firefox but it's not working anymore and cannot even be found in the mozilla store: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/addic7edcom-search-engine/

Fortunately, after a lot of research to find how to fix that, i've found this page where are uploaded and stored custom search engines, and the third one (from 2019, by Daltux) is working like a charm !
