Default How to activate voice search with Firefox

I like using voice search on my phone by clicking the little microphone symbol and speaking my request. You can do the same on a PC using the Chrome browser.

However until recently, it was not possible for Firefox users on a PC.

Now it is, thanks to Voice Fill. I have tried it out and it works fine, and allows you to voice search on Google, Yahoo and DuckDuckGo search pages. After installing, it adds a little microphone symbol to Firefox menu and also to the side of the Google search box. Give it the relevant permissons, hook up your microphone and you are good to go!

You can also search for Voice Fill on the about:addons page in Firefox.
