To add this search extension to Firefox:

  1. Navigate to about:config.
  2. Set the devtools.chrome.enabled preference to true.
  3. Open Browser Console.
    Caution: that’s not the Developer Tools console. It’s something entirely different.
  4. Paste the following code snippet into the Browser Console:
await Services.search.addOpenSearchEngine(
  'https://gist.githubusercontent.com/claui/e90302d820ec8800f9603abd1da11d7f'
    + '/raw/927918e6bc036f1f5a057b1752e244403c5584b5/opensearch-pep.xml',
  null
