I probably should have said that the keyword "mhelp" should be in the keyword field, not in the field for the bookmark name. To verify: right click your bookmark and hit properties then check that the fields read as follows: Name: Mathematica Documentation Search Location: http://www.google.com/search?q=%s+site%3Adocuments.wolfram.com+inurl%3Amathematica&sourceid=mozilla-search Keyword: mhelp Description: Online Mathematica Documentation and Mathematica Book Search of Latest Version The name and description fields don't matter. Anyway, once the bookmark is set up like that, typing "mhelp NVariationalBound" into the address bar (not the search bar, just in case) should find the one page that has a reference to it in the current documentation.
