@desgas2, a social bookmarking & ranking system.
@markus, a toolbar is an extension. either adapt it yourself ( you want to use it ) or ask its devs but do not ask the k-meleon devs.

To search Stumbleupon only for pages containing topics
of your special interest, you can always go to

http://www.stumbleupon.com/tag/

and select one of your favourite tags or enter a
search term into the searchbox on top, to find
"stumblers" having the same interests as you,
where you can follow their links.
An advantage of this method is, that you can also
follow their links with javascript disabled,
by selecting and highlighting the given URL, and
go there by the right click context menu > GoToURL.
You can avoid in this way the existing risks of all
Ajax using methods, where you will not know, what
unwanted effects the javascript of unknown called-up
webpages will have.

Another possibility would be to use the demo,
starting with the sites of recent popularity at

http://buzz.stumbleupon.com

P.S.

You can also create a search box for Stumbleupon Tags
containing a nick for a shortcut.


Go first to for example

http://www.stumbleupon.com/tag/k-meleon/

and bookmark that by Bookmarks > Add/Edit

In the opened bookmarks box click on the
new bookmark and in the line of the URL
replace the word k-meleon by %s
and add in the line for nick for example st
to create a shortcut for the search.
Give the bookmark the title StumbleUpon - SearchTags
Click OK.

Clicking on the bookmark "StumbleUpon - SearchTags"
now opens a search box where you can enter a keyword
for the desired tag.

or :
Writing into the URL address bar :

st k-meleon (or any other keyword)

and pushing Enter

would start the search for the tag as well.

Hey MyProblem cool down - this is not that kind of forum, people here help each other and if they can't, then they say so that's all.
If you want to insult people go elsewhere to do it.

The search string for stumbleupon is pretty straightforward:

http://www.stumbleupon.com/search?q=

You can add that to your list of search engines in: Edit - Preferences - Browsing - Finding Websites - Search Engines tab.

You can then use it directly from the URL bar after setting it as your default engine by using CTRL G instead of ENTER after typing.

If you want to use ENTER instead, Edit - Preferences - Browsing - Finding Websites - URL Bar tab - Keyword Autosearch at the bottom. Make sure the checkbox is checked and then choose Stumbleupon as your search engine.

Finally, another option is to setup a keyword for it like Fred suggested in bookmarks, or you can use the Search+ extension to setup a keyword for it if you've added it to your search engine list. That way you don't have to keep it as your default engine to use it from the URL bar.
