I created a Firefox search engine 'plugin' for SolarWinds. You can search your SolarWinds nodes (by description) from the search box or address bar, just like you search with your favorite search engine.
- Open this XML file and put your SolarWinds server name on line 6 - what you normally see in the address bar when you open SolarWinds.
- Drop this XML file in: application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\**your profile**\searchplugins
- Restart Firefox, and you should be able to add "SolarWinds" as a search engine if you click the icon on the left side of the search box.
- Assign a keyword (like "sw") so that you can search even faster!
If someone wanted to, they could modify this file to search interfaces, or other node properties...
I'm using Firefox 10.0.2
