- by Noxanne, 8 months agoRated 1 out of 5I tried putting in "https://images.google.com" and all it did was send me to the default Google Image page, effectively making the whole add-on pointless. Then I put in "https://images.google.com/search?q=%s" as the address for the search engine and Firefox would not even react to me pressing Tab.
On top of that, developers should refrain from using programmer jargon when developing add-ons such as these. Extensions for web browsers should never require the user to manually type in things like "addons:extensions#search". There should be a button for when the user wants to check their list of installed search engines.
- by roodley, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Not working as intended. When I manually enter a search engine and press "Add custom search engine" I get sent to the "Adding a new search engine via the URL bar" page, showing how to add a search engine with the 3 dot menu, but the option in the 3 dot menu never appears for the sites im trying to add. I'd like an option for the manual input to not take me to the 3 dot instruction screen.
Will update rating when this is resolved because this app is really vital for me.
Developer responseposted a year agoIf you open an issue on https://github.com/evilpie/add-custom-search-engine/issues with the Open SearchXML preview (under advanced options) I might be able to help you.
The option in the 3 dot menu might not appear if you already have a search engine with the same name installed!
- by Firefox user 14450542, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Doesn't seem to do anything.
There's no options button for it in the addon menu.
There's nothing in the search options.
How are you supposed to use this addon to add a search engine?
And why dafuq you don't tell us how?
