What's exactly the point of this extension?
It appears to do exactly nothing a simple keyword can't do.
Even in bare Firefox, you make a bookmark with URL http://bugs.debian.org/%s
and keyword "bts", then typing "bts 654896" or "bts bash" gets you there.
And keywords don't take up screen space a series of buttons does.
