I like to search stuff with different search engines which I choose by typing their shortcuts. And sometimes I want to add several shortcuts for some engines. But right now I can specify only one shortcut (or two if it was added via "add" button (that is available after changing field in about:config) or via extension).

Thus, it would be great if there is an ability to add an unlimited number of shortcuts to each search engine.

Add ability to set multiple keywords for one search engine

Currently it is possible to set only one custom shortcut for a search engine in settings.

For example, default Wikipedia search provides "@wikipedia" shortcut, and you can set one more — for example "wiki". But there's no option to add more shortcuts, like "w", because if you change custom shortcut to "wiki, w", it will be stored as a single shortcut, not 2 separate shortcuts for the same search engine.

Yes, please. I've been wanting this feature for literal years. And it's crazy that the default duckduckgo search works exactly like this (@duckduckgo, @ddg), so the feature is mostly there. We just can't add them manually.
