Updated Firefox Search Plugin for WoWArmory.com

I've got a new update for the search plugins I wrote for the World of Warcraft Armory. Blizzard changed the search results URL slightly and that broke my old version. While I was at it I added a general search (all realms) that might work for Taiwan and Korean realms.

If you're a new user, the basic idea I've used is that sometimes people want to search all realms for a character name but usually you want to look for a character only on a specific realm. Looking on a specific realm is a lot more useful since most of us only play on one realm or at most a few. You can install the realm-specific search for each of the realms you play on and the name shows up when you pick which you want from Firefox's search box.

The search plugin shows up on the top right corner of Firefox. It might also work on Internet Explorer 7 since it's written as an OpenSearch plugin. It doesn't add anything to the browser except this new search engine provider - it's not as big as a normal Firefox add-on.

If you've installed a previous version of my search plugin then you might need to uninstall the old one before getting the new one. To remove the search plugin just click the little arrow drop-down near the icon for the search engine and chose "Manage Search Engines..." This brings up a list of all your installed search plugins and you can pick one then click the "Remove" button to get rid of it. Installing and removing search plugins is pretty quick and painless. You can install the new one right after removing the old one.

Now on to the regions...

I think the Oceania realms might be included with North America. If you know differently then leave a comment and let me know.
Taiwan and Korea
These two are experimental. I just kind of guessed at what I'm seeing on the site and I think I have working search plugins to search all Korean realms or all Taiwan realms for a character.
