Hi.

In Firefox, is there an addon or other method to search for a line that contains for example 2 keywords?

If I understand your question correctly, then won't typing ctl-F on the desired page in FFx do what you want? That opens up the search bar and you enter what you're looking for.

Question

Say I'm on a web page or viewing a saved web page offline. There are many lines and I am looking for a line that contains both the words rabbit and cat. Ctrl+f won't do this unless the words are together e.g. "rabbit cat".

i dont think the / search in firefox allows for grep-able search.

i would save the webpage and do something like this on the command-line:
Code:
grep rabbit linusstallman.html | grep cat
