My Reviews

Default Search Engine

Yes, It Works, If . . . Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After Yahoo hijacked my address bar during an upgrade, I searched for a repair and found this add-on. It worked for several days and then stopped. Thanks to a prior comment I discovered a conflicting add-on. When that was disabled, this one worked as stated again. As a professional researcher I need quick access to specific search engines of which Yahoo, Bing, and alike are seriously wanting. Maybe some day they will catch up, but for now I don't have the time to waste with their limited results.


Failed experience Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When Hootbar came out, this became the quick, easy, and preferred way to post to Twitter. Recent updates have broken something and it no longer works consistently it at all. I hope they let users know when it's fixed and working. Until then, don't bother.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.3).
