I'm currently using a friend's PC and it's been customised a bit but one of the thing I really liked was this:

Where highlighting a certain text shows up a blue box which you then click and then it takes you to several search engines. Google throws up too many suggestions but which one has this one?

Why not just check his Add-ons menu? It will definitely narrow down your search. Hell, why not just ask him?
Add-ons menu is fairly bare and only has Adblock and Downthemall.

That said, I did try out Fasterfirefox and it didn't appeal to me.

If you click the popup window's "option...", don't you have the add-on option showing with it's name ?
"preferences for xxxxx"

my addon has it's name written here

Another way to do it :
type in your address bar : about:config
then search for "extensions", this will show all the preferences for the extensions, with their names.
(of course that is if the developer registered the option in the right place, he could have registered it to "my.extension_name.option_name" instead of "extensions.extension_name.option_name")

extensions.dta is for downthemall
and
extensions.addblockplus for ... yes

so
the other one should be the one you are looking for.

Again, another way : (maybe need a little knowledge, and an additional add-on installation)

Install DOM inspector (it's a debugging/dev tools)
Open your popup's "option..." window
Open the DOM inspector "tools/DOM inspector"
select "File/inspect chome document" and pick the option window.
You will have the path to the window option written in your DOM inspector, like "chrome:///content/option.xul
or the path to the real folder it is located if it's an external addon (fille:///c:/user/etc.)


This is just weird there's no other add-on in the addon manager, maybe it's a plugins ? (like cooliris)

It does it in IE8, so maybe it's something to do with bing?
What is bing ? (I didn't google it, I admit)

Think it's safe to say that it definitely isn't an addon.

The option window when I highlight and click it just shows a dictionary and that's it.

thanks for bing things.


@Harsky: It might come from somewhere, if it's not in firefox it must be installed in his computer to interact with firefox (or with any navigator ?)
did you checked his list of installed software in "add&remove" from control panel?


Too bad, there's no picture searching engine (google might create it, upload one, search the web for identical one

)

Ohh, thank you for TinEye

That's what I needed

I tested the logo from Harsky's first post, but TinEye doesn't work with pictures less than 100*100px.



I tried this one, I'm quite content of the result ^^
My sister reproduced it in oil paint, but didn't know the original name.

The search engine correctly removed the borders and found this image being a part of a bigger paint. good !
(search result available 72H)
