### Firefox Import Custom searches
We can import most of the custom and advanced search we have seen here by doing a direct import, this way we won't have to manually each each one of them.
To do this first we will need the file with the custom search as bookmarks, you can download it from [here](/handbook/tools-and-tips/searching/GitLabSearchShortcuts.html), download that file, and we will use it to load the bookmarks.
With the file download from the [previous tip](, complete step 2 and continue with the following steps.
| Step | Image |
|Click on the import bookmarks from HTML. | ![Firefox Import Bookmark](/images/handbook/tools-and-tips/searching/FF_Import_bookmarks.png)|

| GitLab Handbook | gl | Handbook search |
| GitLab Documentation | gd | GitLab documentation [] |
| Issues by author | author | Search for issues open by given author (username) in all projects |
| Merge Requests by author | mr | Search for merge requests by given author (username) in all projects |
| Google Drive search | dv | Simple google drive search |
### Firefox Search
Similarly to the Chrome instructions above, you can add a custom search engine into Firefox to allow you to search the handbook (or issues etc) from the address bar.
