How do create a website shortcut in Firefox?

Stupid question, must have been asked, sure shot. Read to get flamed. No probs.

How do I create a shortcut for a website using Firefox? For eg. I frequently visit the search engine http://foo.com to search for meanings of terms I don't understand. I'd like to create a shortcut so that the next time I only need to type something like "Foo" in the address bar, and my browser is directed to http://www.foo.com, and when I type "Foo bar", the browser takes me to something like http://www.foo.com?q=bar and the meaning of bar is displayed.

Thanks!

Use Manage Bookmarks, find the bookmark and select its properties and put the Shortcut you want to use in Keyword.

Then when you type the keyword in the URL entry it will bring up the bookmark.
