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/ea4bf0d593a2df9c0e15b0467918645c'
    + '/raw/f6c9fc6323c5cc01821be72e73f2177fc5d08a35/opensearch-aur.xml',
  null
)
