Works fine for me, i just don't know how to continue the search after the popup is closed.
When I reopen the pop-up window, it remembers to the previous text, but it doesn't work. Currently I modify and undo the modification to make the original search work again.
Is there an easier way to do this?
- by Glanzer, a year agoRated 5 out of 5It took me a while to find this add-on and I'm so glad I did. Seems to work well in my short 5 minute testing, i.e. I can search for regular expressions and jump through them using the up/down arrow keys. BTW, I'm not sure what Ckln was saying when he only gave this 2 stars because "On Firefox you can't have a shortcut to make the search pop up that's a shame." I use the default ctrl-shift-f and the search box pops up just fine in my Firefox.
- by Ckln, a year agoRated 2 out of 5this extension seems to be fine but I have major issues with it:
* On Firefox you can't have a shortcut to make the search pop up that's a shame.
* I'm unable to use built in shortcut as they conflict with my keymap ie Ctrl+Alt+R (on windows) is equivalent to Ctrl+AltGr+R which give me the char ™.
* Also the extention is using the «Access your data for all websites» which give this extention ability to read password and it could use the «Read the text of all open tabs» permission instead.
- by RBO, a year agoRated 1 out of 5It slows the browser A LOT when trying to find anything on a large web page (the most popular use case). It is probably because of "search as you type" functionality. It should be possible to deactivate it. The other possibility is to perform "search as you type" only for expressions longer than e.g. 3 characters. I dislike also a very broad permissions this addon requires. It can be a security concern. Addon named "Multiple Highlight" shows that it is possible to search RegEx without any permission requested.
- by The Voice Inside Your Head, a year agoRated 5 out of 5I love it after playing with it for two minutes, however, if I could code, my "find" tool would be a static search box [always present] in the toolbar, the search word once typed would remain until changed, the search word would auto highlight in all pages without having to constantly click to get to work. I do thousands of word searches on thousands of web pages, and my kind of "find" would be great for people like me, we spend thousands of clicks to get the "find" thingy to fetch, I'd rather have my "find" thingy always open and working always. I hope I was clear in thought. Your 'copy all incidences to clipboard' is useless.
- by jerobi, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Great enthusiasm, kudos. However, a couple of futures are lacking in all similar FF addons:
1. It would be great if you could implement virtual scrollbar with indication where matches occurred within a page. Something like developer of the "HightlightAll" addon achieved. I know this is hard to implement since I'm using FF on Kubuntu, but it is a game changing feature.
2. Another one (if even possible), would be nice if there is an option for search window to stay open when we change tab.
Nevertheless, great addon. Keep up...
- by srw, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Really useful extension and best like it that I've found for searching webpages using regular expressions. The one thing I will note for the developer is that the last update wiped all of my saved expressions, some of which were quite complicated. I have noted to myself to save them elsewhere for future updates.
- by vpamrit, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Fantastic extension -- exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately it was a bit hard to find, and it wasn't clear what hotkey could to used to access the search.
