Perfect for my browser!!!

Reply to "CTRL-F issue" Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Thanks. New version works almost great with Ctrl-F hits!

But there is a tiny flaw, something like an asynchronous problem. After hitting Ctrl-F, it needs some time until findbar appears (depending on current system load conditions). Until this happens, keystrokes wont be buffered and forwarded to findbar, but get lost. So, if you type "^Fsearchexpression" (where "^F" stands for Ctrl-F), it may happen that after findbar appears its search field is filled with "archexpression" only.
Of course, in most cases this leads to the same "find spots", therefore it isn't that dire.

Thanks – Peter

This behavior should be fixed in version 2.0.1, which I've already uploaded. If after you update it still doesn't work correctly for you, please let me know either by e-mail or create an issue in the support page.

Incredible time saving add-on Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

The ability to find and view text across tabs within a simple interface is a major boon for reviewing and updating content in some sites.

This is one of those essential add-ons. I can't stand not having automatic find bar closing and match highlights anymore, and the focus feature is gorgeous. And it works beautifully considering how much functionality it adds. Thanks for making this!

A surprising effort and feature-full add-ons Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

It was very surprising with the sudden release of version 2 with amazing set of feature, particularly;
- New: almost complete code rewrite, with many stability and performance enhancements across the board!
- New: multiprocess firefox (e10s) compatibility
- New: brand new preferences tab with a new "About" pane

The slow-down when using Sight and Highlight is no longer noticeable.
A beautiful new setting layout.
Excellent support considering e10s is still a work-in-progress.
Plentiful of option to play with and working right away, e.g. Highlight color. Furthermore having add-on that still being develop and support in 2015 is a great sight to see considering Mozilla recent (deserving) hatred/sadness cause by their marketing decision.

I truly liked the add-on's FindBar Tweak, however there was one annoyance that I believe people should be aware of and why I could not rate it 5-star. Whenever you open the "setting" or "option" of Find Bar tweak it does a "Phone Home" to "fasezero.com", even worse still is that it a HTTP link rather than HTTPS. There doesn't seem to be a built-in option to disable it, you will need to use some 3rd-party add-on or Firewall to block them.

Aside from that problem described above, it was difficult not to sign up to Mozilla to thank the developer in some way. Putting that aside, Mozilla sign up system is terrible, "8 chars password only", using Google's "Please fill in this house number captcha", however it was quick and easy to sign up.

Hope you enjoy the add-on and maybe my review will help you decide to use Findbar Tweak or support the developer Quicksaver's incentive.

Thank you for the add-on.

PS: It weird how this version did not get Signed.

EDIT: As of version 2.0.1, the Development Status information is only fetched when you access the About pane in the preferences. So if you don't want this connection to happen (which is harmless, as I have explained) you simply have to not go to the About pane.

I'm glad you like the add-on!

That "phone home" you refer to is an API, it only fetches the current state of development for the about pane in the add-on's preferences. It's true I could add an option to disable it, but there is absolutely no data uploaded, it only fetches an url in the same way you would type it in the address bar. That url returns a text document with the "hours" that are put into the little development box.

Because of this I didn't feel it was necessary to purchase an SSL package (I'm on a budget here, so the hosting package I'm using is very basic), since there is absolutely no personal data carried. An HTTPS connection would only put extra weight into the server and into the connection (and into my wallet) for just fetching a number.

Still you're right that it's useless to do this when you just want to open the preferences. I will make it so this data is only fetched when you open the "About" pane specifically, since that's what the fetched info is used for. That should be enough I believe. Although, like I said, it's harmless and very light (about 1kb transfer). You can confirm it yourself if you want, this is the url the add-on calls: http://fasezero.com/addons/api/findbartweak

Also, it is signed. The ".1-signed" suffix was added to already existing versions at the time a mass-signing event happened, to differentiate them from their unsigned equivalent versions. All versions uploaded (and reviewed!) after that, like the current version 2, are automatically signed so they don't have or need the signed suffix.

I love this Add-on, but this update niggles me for one reason; instead of Find All being under my Find Bar I have to click a button and a new "Window" appears. I use fullscreen so this is very inconvenient.

Would it be possible to change it back to how it was?

Edit: just read the patch notes; I will be going back to 1.4.18 until this more intuitive Find All feature is implemented.

Diese Bewertung wurde für eine vorherige Version des Add-ons (2) abgegeben. 

As you noticed, I am planning to rewrite the Find All lists into the window again as a sidebar that will be easier to use and less obtrusive than before.

It is your choice to go back a version of course, although you're likely to run into many existing bugs with it, so I don't really recommend it as I also can't give you an exact release date for the reworked Find All lists.

FindBar is a life saver for me. I won't upgrade to newer versions of Firefox until this add-on is updated to work with them because I refuse to have a find bar I can't open and close myself using just the keyboard. I need to do that both when I'm searching manually (I don't want to have to use my mouse) as well as when I'm running macros I've written in AutoHotKey.

Version 2 has just (finally) been released, so at least on the add-on's part it should be safe to update now. :)

I hope you can add this feature.

Back when this worked, it really had me feeling like I wasn't sacrificing anything to stick with firefox over chrome. Call it a hunch but I feel good that it will eventually work again.

Ctrl+F issue, and a suggestion Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

-Please fix Ctrl+F issue.

-Suggestion:
Can you add more than one search bar? Sometimes I'm looking for more than one string and don't want to clear search box, type something else and later clear again and retype the previous string. Would be nice.

Thanks

This issue should now be fixed in the latest version 2. Please give it a try and let me know through the support page or by e-mail if you still have problems.

As for your suggestion, a second findbar would bring an incredible amount of extra code to maintain. Instead, I believe a combination of some of the planned future features, such as a search history dropdown menu, together with multiple find queries (through RegEx for instance), should cover your case.

You're welcome to go to the support page and follow the respective suggestion threads and add your comments if you think they can be further enhanced.

Excellent Add-on and top-notch customer service. The developer answered my email question within minutes and gave a detailed solution. Note that the problem was not with the FindBar Tweak, but rather with a setting I had changed on my browser. A++ Add-on!

Could you add a x button inside findbar that clear the text inside of it. Also a paste button would be useful, it clears the findbar and pastes the clipboard content much easier.
