Although mozilla has not said when, the likelihood of the feature being built into the beta means it may come out with the next iteration, probably Firefox 34.

With the new one click searches, you can instantly find what you are looking for across the web.link [blog.mozilla.org]
When typing a search term into the Firefox search box, you will notice two new things: first, we improved the design of search suggestions to make them look a lot more organized. And second: there is an array of buttons below your search suggestions. These buttons allow you to find your search term directly on a specific site quickly and easily.

Suggestions is an area I feel Chrome has outdone Firfox. Would love to see Firefox team up with Bing, Yahoo, etc and match Chrome in this area.

Just got this "upgrade"

This is a very unintuitive implementation and I wish I could uninstall it. This makes it difficult to switch between search companies. Search choices are not displayed until I start to type a search term, so I then must move down, choose a search company, then move back up and finish typing. Gee, how fun!

Booo Mozilla... Why can't you leave things alone?

These sort of things are why I prefer to stick with FF28 ( with auto update blocked ) until I know if I want the "improvements" that browser ( and other software ) manufacturers foist upon us ..

I'm tired of the constant Firefox upgrades, I use it all day as my regular browser. They're always coming out with these "great" upgrades but I don't care about any of it. Just keep things simple would ya!? Give me one upgrade per year and that's all I need LOL.

This is what happens when techies run out of legitimate problems to address.

there might be a revenue motive.

those ebay and amazon buttons are likely to be affiliate-linked.

Oh absolutely they are. Just like Google gives them a kickback for searches using the old Google/Firefox home page, and probably the search bar too.
