Is there a program that will allow me to use Spotlight to search my Firefox bookmarks and open the browser window?
First, download this file to your desktop: ffmd.sh
Open a terminal, and run the following:
sudo mkdir /usr/local
sudo mkdir /usr/local/bin
sudo mv ~/Desktop/ffmd.sh /usr/local/bin/
sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/ffmd.sh
sudo chown root:wheel /usr/local/bin/ffmd.sh
- Now, schedule the task with crontab. The following line will schedule for 10 minutes:
0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /usr/local/bin/ffmd.sh > /dev/null 2>&1
This script is in the public domain, and intended for those with a little experience with UNIX.
Here is a proof of concept ffmd_sqlite script that uses the Firefox places database. Webloc docs are created that will be found by Spotlight and can be opened with Firefox.
