Hijacks default search and other settings Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Like previous reviewer Mark pointed out, this plugin changes the default search-provider without first asking the user to a horrible skin upon google with a layer of their own ads. You have to go into about:config and search for "search" and revert it back to default to make it work like normally again. It also adds a search provider to the search-field on the top right side (also making it the default). Not sure any of this is allowed by the extension guidelines provided by Mozilla. Please ban this extension until they remove these felonious and sneaky methods to take advantage of less knowledgeable users. Shameful behavior from a property owned and operated by amazon.comThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.0).
Hi Johan - thanks for pointing out this bug! We have submitted an update; this page will update as soon as Mozilla approves the fix. Until then, find Sparky version 1.7.1 under Version Information, below. Click on "See complete version history" to access the patched Sparky. Thanks!
