There are Firefox plugins out there that do search on stackoverflow using stackoverflow.com search engine. What I would be interested in is searching from Firefox search box using Google for only stackoverflow.com content.

Bookmark a Google search where you have used site:stackoverflow.com,
e.g. CPU site:stackoverflow.com.

Then edit the bookmark (menu Bookmarks/Organize Bookmarks.../Bookmarks Menu/<select the bookmark - it is at the end>):

  • Fill out the keyword field. E.g. with "so".
  • Replace the word you used in the original search (CPU in the example above) with %s.

Now searches in Stack Overflow can be done directly from the address bar, e.g.:

so wix installer

(F6 toggles focus to the address bar.)
