Question Firefox keyword shortcuts + POST data

In the location of a keyword shortcut bookmark, "%s" refers to the string that was entered after the shortcut string itself, eg. "" would go to if "y the matrix" was entered (assuming "y" is the keyword shortcut).

Because that data is part of the location, it is submitted as a GET request. Does anybody know of a way or add-on where one can specify to send the query as POST data instead? I've looked around but didn't find anything that worked.

I believe you can send a post with Tamper-Data:

I don't know of a way to make a shortcut send POST data though.
