Awesome - Thankyou! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

The find button is a thing of beauty. I can now locate any text on my Firefox screen without having to hunt through the Mozilla menus.

A massive productivity gain.

This is a must-have add-on for anyone using pale moon Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This add-on does exactly what it's supposed to do. Firefox added a find button to the optional icons. However, I'm currently running pale moon as my default browser, because it has a stable 64-bit version and, in general, a more intuitive user interface than the australis revision of Firefox. It doesn't come with a find button by default, and I use that feature all the time, so I was extremely grateful to discover this add-on. Thanks.

Perfect !!! :)

Just wanted to assure you that your add-on is still very, very useful. Because with Firefox 29.0.1 the Find Button is not available when using not the Standard skin but for example Winestripe Realfox 4 (which I use).

That means that without your add-on I would not have the Find Button.

Thanks a lot. :-)

Simple but useful Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

That is what I look for because I don't like to remember shortcuts.


I hope it has been useful to you. Makes it all worthwhile!

Good basic functionality; better options available Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Dear author: this is a nice feature but the icon appears to have an 8 or 16 color palette or something like that, which makes it look out of place compared to the original Firefox icons. May I suggest a new icon made with a "true color" palette, anti-aliased, with support for alpha channel transparency. This will make custom icons look smooth even when you install themes which change the background color. Im sure you can find something in PNG format which meets all of these specifications.

Thanks for the feedback

I must admit I was never very happy with the icon either! I always meant to update it, but can never find the time! It seems this add-on has been superseded now anyway. It could be a long while before I get the time to update it again, but would like to. In the meantime, thanks for your suggestions.

Simple, does what it says Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

My apologies to the developer, I couldn't find any way to contact you about this. If you feel this review is unnecessary, just let me know and I will promptly remove this.

Find Button provides a nice easy way of quickly accessing the find bar.

I have written my own add-on, called "FindBar Tweak", which also has a similar find bar toolbar button and keyboard shortcut toggle. I would invite everyone to switch to FBT; the button has better integration with the browser (it checks itself when the find bar is open) and the keyboard shortcut has several improvements over the default firefox behavior, which I have plans to further improve in the future to make it more intuitive to use.

I'm sorry for the spam, but I believe my add-on is a good alternative to Find Button, but since Find Button is functioning just like it promises, I will remove this review if the developer wishes it like I said.

I recommend Findbar Tweak too!

Your comment is welcome, FBT is a great add-on and I have added a recommendation to this add-on's details. When I made this I made sure it worked okay with Findbar Tweak, but I think at the time FBT did not have toggling. It certainly does now, plus this button is unnecessary in the latest Firefox builds. I am leaving it here for those still using it and hope to add more features one day when I have the time!

I have long wished for a one-click way to toggle find on and off. This is exactly what I wanted. Thanks! I think you need a little more info in the topmost description so that people see what this addon is about: "Can drag button to other locations." Many people may not make it to the details in the "About this Add-on" if they do not understand that it can be moved around.

Thanks for the suggestion, this has now been done and will hopefully make it clearer.

Exactly what I needed. Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Long awaited addon. I couldn't delete heavy Toolbar Buttons just for Find button. Now I can delete it. Moreover unlike Toolbar Buttons Find button, you don't need other addon like Toggle Find Bar to toggle by button click because this addon support it natively. But you still need other addon like Toggle Find Bar or FindBar Tweak option to toggle by Ctrl-F key.

Thank you x 10000.

Thanks for your kind comments and feedback. Still awaiting full approval for the basic functionality; once this is approved I will add a few features. I have added toggling to a future version, but being cautious about overriding the default Ctrl+F handling and testing it thoroughly in the meantime! Hopefully the next version will get full approval and the version after that will get extra features.

Edit: Ctrl+F toggling now implemented, hope that is more convenient for you. Sorry I left it so long!
