can I put two search bars in the Mozilla search tab?

I just noticed I can select Wikipedia in the search engine bar. I'd like to do that as a quick way of looking things up in Wikipedia; but I also want to keep my search engine ready and Wikipedia is not a search engine. Is there any way to display two search bars?

Maybe check the man page for your browser(?).

Open a tab and navigate to,
Right mouse click in the search box on that page and select "Add a keyword for this search".
Name it something descriptive and clever (or not)
and use they keyword 'wiki' with no (single) quotes.

Close tab.
Open a new tab and type "wiki" with out the quotes and press enter.
