Searching for specific words

How do I do that?

I see how I can use Google Search, like the below, but is there still no way locally from here on aquariumadvice.com?

site:aquariumadvice.com/ forum search specific word

What I mean is finding specific words in threads or posts rather than finding every post or thread with any combination of the words I use.

I am running foxfire and Linux all I have to do is go to a page and then go to the google and use the highlight feature. I am not for sure if it works with your set up.

Thanks. I too use Firefox but rather than Google, I use the 'search as you type' feature on the page.

Still, it's not the same as finding specific words. For example, if I search for 'tom and jerry' I don't want results for 'tom', 'jerry', and/or 'jerry and tom'. It's just more user friendly if I could do it from here directly rather than go to a Google Search page and type the following without the quotes: 'site:aquariumadvice.com/ forum tom and jerry'

Anyway, it's not a big deal.
