4.8 Stars out of 5
- by nitestocker372, 3 months agoRated 3 out of 5I really like this add-on for Firefox, but I found out it makes my surfing lag and locks up some pages even when I'm not using it so I have to disable it from time to time.

Definitely one of my top extensions. Adds a lot of efficiency to searching. Unfolds it's real potential, if you use a lot of search engines for more specific searches. Very nice and competent developer, he always had an open ear for useful suggestions. Keep in mind: Mozilla is blocking several possibilities for such an extension, so there may be some quirks. Being a developer myself, I can assure you, the developer does his best to circumvent such problems.
- by Firefox user 12323397, 4 months agoRated 3 out of 5When this add-on is enabled, Speedometer 2.0 score will drop significantly
What's going on?
Developer responseposted 4 months ago(edit)
I took another look at how Speedometer 2.0 works and why the slowdown. It's not actually a content script loading issue. The page simulates a ton of click events. Every click event triggers a very light "menu close" event and method. When the addon gets flooded with hundreds of simulated click events per second, it bogs down the page. It's nothing you'd experience in a real-world situation. The Speedometer rating flat-out misleading.
This addon injects content scripts into iframes to maintain most if not all function when searching text inside iframes.
When testing using Speedometer 2.0, content scripts are being loaded into the iframe every refresh. If that iframe refreshes 480 times, or whatever the actual count is, it adds up.
For reference, I ran tests while injecting this addon's code into the iframe, or not -
with iframe injection: 29.41 runs/min
without iframe injection: 63.66 runs/min
- by tomncar , 6 months agoRated 5 out of 5Probably Top on my list of addons :o) Just love how you can just right click on any Site with a search box and add it to your list of search engines.
Hate that Google default is US ! Nothing against the US but by default a lot of the results are completely irrelevant to me .
Just so pleased . Thankyou
- by Firefox user 13599083, a year agoRated 5 out of 5This addon is great but is it possible to run all search engines in folder at the same time? Just like default in Firefox by "Search in all tabs". Similar solution in ContextSearch web-ext is missing and you must click again and again to use all search engines included in folder.
2nd thing is hotkey assigned to search engine. Is it possible to make not a single letter but e.g. 2-letter / 3-letter phrase?
Developer responseposted a year ago> This addon is great but is it possible to run all search engines in folder at the same time?
When using the popup menu, yeah ( context menu folders have no usable click events ). Clicking the middle mouse button on a folder will search all engines in the folder with the current search terms and send the results to background pages. You can change this behavior in Options -> Quick Menu -> Search Actions -> Folders column.
> 2nd thing is hotkey assigned to search engine. Is it possible to make not a single letter but e.g. 2-letter / 3-letter phrase?
Not currently. Be aware, the hotkeys only work with the quick menu opened. If you're looking to select text and press a key to immediately perform a search, you might want to open the qm using the keyboard method ( using CTRL for instance ) and then you can press your preferred search engine hotkey to execute a search. If you're looking for more functionality, consider opening a thread on the github support site.
- by maclay, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Now it works correctly. Thanks!
Position bottom right calls the right default context menu when opening the Quick Menu using holding right-click
Upd. Yes. It only happen when using bottom-right position. I uploaded the video with a demonstration https://youtu.be/mI-8WAEj7dU OS: Win 10x64, Firefox 68.0.1, ui.context_menus.after_mouseup set as true

New version 1.12 going up
Ok, got it. I had to change a few things to match your settings. It appears the deadspace in Tools toolbar isn't set to cancel the mouseup event, only the button tiles themselves. I'll get a fix soon.
I'm not able to reproduce that behavior. Does it only happen when using bottom-right? You may need to set ui.context_menus.after_mouseup = true in about:config if you're using an OS that opens the context menu on mousedown vs mouseup (mac, linux typically). Edit your reply with some more info if you see this or contact me using the support email.
