Firefox add search engine: problems with

I want to add Web URL Wayback Machine as search engine with shortcut “arc”. is also a search engine for archived pages.

With Opera Browser this works easily in settings with adding:*/%s

But with Firefox it seems each page must have an allowance from FF with a “+” in the search field or 3 points “…” besides the address bar.
I don not see anything of that on

How can i manage this manually it there is no other way?
Please without FF permission or Addon :slight_smile:
Thank you.

A FF option to accept all sites with search function would be nicer :slight_smile:

For Firefox I should recommend extensions such as these:
