Quickly search Java documentation in Firefox

Firefox Quick Searches have become an ingrained habit for me after a lot of repeat searching. Recently I’ve been working on a Java project and I’ve found myself needing to look up classes in the Java online documentation quite often. To that end, I’ve set up a quick-search bookmark that will take me to the relevant documentation page by typing java [keyword] in the address bar. It uses Google’s I’m Feeling Lucky search:
The Javadoc quick search bookmark
Just add a bookmark with the string “http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I%27m+Feeling+Lucky&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=Java%206%20%s“.
