Typing in address bar not working at all (Firefox 53, you can type in address bar, but when you press Enter the page will not respond and will stay as nothing happened) Waardering 2 van 5 sterren

Great idea and great "half"-made app! However typing in address bar not working at all, you can actually type in address bar, but when you press Enter the page will not respond and will stay as nothing happened and making address bar totally useless). Once fixed, deff will donate if possible and will change my raiting to 5*

Replacement is built into firefox Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Firefox has built in support for this now, you don't need any more addons.

Right click a search field and select "Add a Keyword for this search"
Enter the title and the keyword. example. I use 'g' for google and 'a' for amazon.

These are saved as bookmarks and you can edit them in the bookmark menu, that also means they're easy to transfer from computer to computer.

You can also add a keyword to any other bookmarks.

Адресная строка. Waardering 1 van 5 sterren

Ребята смотрите и допиливайте, дополнение очень удобное и хорошее, но с недавних пор перестала работать адресная стока. И судя по отзывам не только не у меня одного и значит баг не профиксен до сих пор. И посим 1, за невнимательность к пользователям.

Поправте пожалуйста Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

Здравствуйте, пользуюсь давно, очень полезное дополнение, появилась проблема: в адресной строке не работает поиск, не работает переход по ссылке вставленной из буфера или набранной в ручную, при отключении дополнения всё нормально, пробовал на чистом браузере. Спасибо.

Great but it disables essential Firefox features Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

This has been my favourite and most used add-on for many years ... what a HUGE shame that it has (apparently) been abandoned and it messes with Firefox functions. To the devs: I'd happily pay a sizable software fee for a fully functional copy!!

Fortunately a workaround is easy enough, see below., so it's still worth 5 stars!

Great, but not working properly Waardering 3 van 5 sterren

This is a great add-on, but sadly since approximately one year of FF-versions, it deactivates the history of visited (or open) websites. It would be really great if this was fixed, then i will upgrade to 5 stars :-)

History/bookmark suggestions broken Waardering 2 van 5 sterren

I abosulutely love this idea of a feature in firefox. But I can't live without suggested bookmarks/history for the sites I regularly visit. Disabling and hoping for future update fixing this.

Years of Joy - but does not work with FF 50.0 (see comments below) Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Thank you for this addon! Definitely changed my life after all those years..

For everybody out there seeking an alternative I want to tell you mine:

* Install addon: Search Engine Creator https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/search-engine-creator/
* Visit duckduckgo.com
* Set your preferences on top right and copy the link from "Show Bookmarklet and Settings Data"
* Create a new search engine with this url in the addon. You can search e.g. `foobar` and then replace `foobar` in URL with `{searchTerms}`
* Set as default in Firefox Preferences → Search
* Now just enter !bangs in urlbar/searchbar to get a list of duckduckgo BANGS (it must have approximately a thousand of keywords, like !gat for Google-Austria, !osm OpenStreetMap, !we English Wikipedia, ........)

Have Fun, rock on & on

InstantFox was great - but does not work with FF 50.0 Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

A great extension but it no longer works.

Thank you to the developers for maintaining it as long as you could.

Thanks for the great addon - time to move on Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

I have used instantfox a lot in the last couple of years. It made my surfing experience way faster and efficient. Unfortunately development has stopped (apparantly) and the number of bugs has increased to a level where I cannot use it anymore.

For everybody looking for an alternative addon. I have moved to fastest search (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/fastest-search/) which is a bit more complicated but more customizable and offers a lot of functionality.

Thank you Instantfox Dev... Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Thank you for the years of support. My web browsing with this extension saved me many hours of typing/copying/pasting over the time I've used it. As a power-user, I cannot 'live' without such a convenience and increased productivity.

So, thank you for developing it and supporting it all this time. :)

But...life moves on and now there's another solution I'm using. This info below is to help other refugees looking for the perfect replacement (IMO). Have no worries, there's a savior for us power-users.

Behold: Context Search X (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search-x/)

*Based on Ben Basson's Context Search: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search/

CSX brings a bit more customizations/tweaks to the table.

My current configuration- screencaps:

How it looks for my Context menu: http://imgbox.com/m6Ewcizm

Managing Search Engines List option box: http://imgbox.com/X8TNW5Bi

It's very easy to use/setup. Just install, configure as needed. Here's some help: At http://mycroftproject.com/ - you can click to install the search engines you desire. CSX will pick them up and add to your Context menu. :)

You can re-arrange the engines as needed, show on the Context Main menu rather than Sub-menu (or not). Add site search with a particular installed search engine even.

I cannot at this time find a fault with Context Search X. I think it is a perfect replacement for Intantfox.

I hope the above info helps for those looking to migrate from Instantfox.

Again, thank you to the developer. And thank you as well to the dev of Context Search X. :)
