Mutual fund and ETF symbols are frequently used in forum thread posts, occasionally without the name of the security. To make identifying the fund, and providing a link to the fund's data page on Morningstar, two Boglehead forum members have created tools that work with the Firefox and Chrome browsers to do this.

Firefox: TickerDescribe script used with extension Greasemonkey. To use, add Greasemonkey to Firefox then use this link to add the script to Greasemonkey: https://github.com/mas-bogleheads/TickerDescribe/raw/master/tickerdescribe.user.js This tool was created by Boglehead member mas and the original thread describing it is here: https://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12692&p=2414441

Chrome: Mutual Fund Symbols is an add-on to Chrome. To install use this link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/oaioococfgnikdjhcjkoiealnikffcgg?hl=en-US This tool was created by Mark13 and the original thread describing it is here: http://www.bogleheads.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1161322
