  • Excellent!
    Edit: the bug is fixed in version 2.3


    Edit: I see the problem when trying to move a row in an empty folder. I will fix that.
    A workaround for now is to create a new row in the folder. Once the folder has a row you can move the other rows in, then remove the first row. To add a new row to a folder, the folder needs to be selected then press "Add a row".


    Could you please detail more about this issue? I do not understand what do you mean with the "parallel structure". Maybe an example?
  • Great extension with a little bug: The bookmarked searches only work when the browser locale is set to en-us.

    It would be nice if you could add a placeholder for the complete URL and an option to use searches without a selection in the page and link context. Ex: https://web.archive.org/web/*/~$U$~ could open an archived page.

    Edit: Thanks a lot for the quick update. 5 stars now. :)
    The placeholder is implemented in v2.2. Also the bug is fixed.
  • Searched a long time for an extension with this functionality. Works flawlessly.
  • if only were a way to use the already existing search engines instead oftrying to build from scratch
    Unfortunately the new API does not allow the add-ons to access the search engines.
  • The Best!
  • When enabled, Firefox starts to increase CPU load for about 40%. Even when I have Firefox window on background. I had to disable it and restart Firefox and my CPU load is back to normal.
    It could be from the Firefox add-on installer. Please let me know the outcome in case you will try to install again.
  • 真的很不错,关键是自定义方面足够强大。希望以后能支持多重搜索!就是一次打开多个标签,每个标签使用不同搜索引擎。
  • Для новой версии Firefox лучше не найти добавления поиска в контекст меню
  • Works like a charm !

    Searched an add-on like this for a long time (used one similar on Chrome) and finally found this one.

    Easily 5 stars.
  • Bonus points for customization of the text and of the folder name.

    It doesn’t read the bookmarks in my case though, and I cannot debug this because of obfuscated source code.

    At least my security concerns are lifted: I forgot that Mozilla Team reviews the code of extensions.
    We have to provide the source code and the method of obfuscation to Firefox team. They review the code for each version and also ensure that the obfuscated code is generated from the source code.

    The folder should be located in "Bookmarks Menu". Not in other folders such as "Bookmarks Toolbar", "Other Bookmarks", ...
  • Last night a DJ saved my life. Awesome, very customizable and intuitive, 100% user friendly. Some searches as Rottentomatoes or Metacritic do not seem to work. I have done it manually too and nothing happens. A 5 either way. EDIT: after a week I found the way to add the searchers by myself. Just thinking; maybe add some hotkeys to automatize and do faster the searchers so we do not have to actually right click on the selected word.
  • Nice, but:
    1) Is it possible to cache favicons? It's not too smooth to see and wait them loading.
    2) Why it is necessary to duplicate engines? I must add an engine both into Firefox and this addon. EVERY TIME!
  • Exactly what I needed and nice and easy to use.
  • I really miss context search x and add too searchbar prior to 57. Please add Newegg.com Best Buy and Micro Center to search options.
    The default list of search pages is meant to be an example of how the add-on could be used.
    You can add them manually in the Options page for the add-on or by using the add-on button from the Firefox menu bar.
    If you wish to add them manually the addresses are:

  • Nice extension. Would it be possible to add open selected text in a new tab?
    Something that just opens the highlighted text
    (whatever it is and however it is formatted) in a new tab.
    This could be quite difficult because the formatting could be inherited from different places in the page and also from different files.
    Otherwise it is simple to show the text with generic formatting.
    I will think about it.
  • Good Add-on!
  • I was always using 'pastego' for the old search bar:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pastego/

    I don't like the new search bar.
    You need to make a right click > paste > select engine.

    With the old old search bar and 'pastego' you also need to select the engine first.

    If your Add-on would have a button we could click and then select the engine like we do in the context
    menu and search for what is in the clipboard it would be perfect.

    It also means there would be less work because adding all the engines only to your Add-on and no need to add them also to the Firefox 'one-click search engines'
  • Would you add an option to open the new tab next to the current one? Thank you.
    Done in version 1.19
  • A marvelously designed extension! Thank you.

    Can you put your extensions on GitHub so that issues can be raised there?

    Also, can you have the extension store the favicons? Loading them each time is fairly slow.
  • Display the context menu and do not move the cursor to the breakdown of the search engine and click on Find '· · · · ·' using ... Please do it with the top search engine of breakdown.

    contextSearcher.uc.js
    https://firefoxfan.us/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/contextSearcher.uc.js
    It is perfect if you can do the same kind of action.
    I am not sure if I understand your request. I assume that by breakdown to refer to the context sub-menu.

    Would you like to start searching just by pressing the "Find 'keyword' using..." in the context menu? If that is right then it cannot be done in Firefox. It is a technical limitation.

    If you mean something different then please let me know.

    Edit: That kind of context menu customization is not possible anymore with the new API. The code you listed uses the old API which will be obsolete soon.
  • This is a very useful addon.

    One minor feature I'd like to suggest is trimming trailing spaces from the selection. You get such spaces in the selection when you double click on a word.
    Thank you for the suggestion.
    I added trimming to version 15.
  • ...In the context menu. Is it a method to remedy it by myself? If not could you please put a look? Thanks for the work.
    Edit: you can specify now (in version 1.18) an address for the icon of each search website.


    This website does not have the icon in the standard place. It sets the icon in the code. I am not sure how to automatically obtain the icon in this situation.
    Other solution will be to optionally specify the icon location for each website in the list. I added this to my to-do list.
  • on Firefox 57 beta, cannot export settings
    can you fix it?

    edit:
    setting export is ok on version 1.12, fx 57 beta 6
    I have just tested the export/import in Firefox 57 and I could not find any problem. I also added a website with Chinese characters in the domain name and it worked. Maybe the problem appears only under certain circumstances? Please let me know if you find a clue.
  • Icons can be gotten. I asked the same thing of another search context menu developer and he found a way to do it. Check his add-on here:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/contextual-search/?src=search
    Thank you for the tip.
    The API was updated and the icons are allowed now. I uploaded version 1.10 supporting icons.
  • I replaced my old not correctly working context search plugin with this one and have no problems. The only thing I would kike to see as an improvement would be syncing the search sites list thru Firefox Sync
    I added the sync feature on my to-do list. I never used sync and didn't thought about it.
