What does it have to do with Firefox?

Nigel, it's not very efficient if you just guess and copy other people's
code without understanding.  HTML forms are well worth learning.  I
suggest you go through a tutorial, such as
http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutorials/forms/article.php/3479121 .
Anyway, what you want is:

<form
   action="http://www.google.com/search"
   method="get" id="google_general">
  <p>
    <input type="hidden" name="sitesearch"
value="lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-users/"/>
    <input type="text"   name="q" size="31" maxlength="256"
id="google_general-input" />
    <input type="submit" value="Search" />
  </p>
</form>
