Windows 7: How to add "Find" to right-click context menu?

17 Oct 2017   #1

How to add "Find" to right-click context menu?

I want to add "Find" (Ctrl+F) (Menu bar > Edit > Find) to the right-click context
menu of my Windows 7 Pro pc.

I want to be able to select some text, right-click on the selected text, and have
"Find" appear appear as one of the options to left-click on.

And after I've left-clicked on "Find" in that context menu I want the actual "Find"
popup window to appear (i.e., what happens when you press the Ctrl+F keystrokes)
with my selected text pasted into its search window and the "found" numbers of text
indicated and highlighted in the body of the page. All I need do is press either mouse
to the up or down caret or press enter to move the focus to the next found text.

My goal is eliminate the tedious, repetitious, keystroking of (after selecting the
desired text) pressing Ctrl+C to copy the selected text, Ctrl+F to open Find,
and Ctrl+V to paste my copied text into the Find search field.

I'm using Firefox 56.0 (64-bit).

Anyone know of a way to accomplish adding "Find" to the context menu?
