  • Position bottom right calls the right default context menu when opening the Quick Menu using holding right-click
    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.
  • 👍
  • for me one of the best addon here on firefox......thank you so much mike b :)
    god bless you!
  • Works straight out of the box. Double thumbs up.
  • There are a few add-ons that offer similar functionalities, namely:

    Selection Context Search
    Context Search
    Context Search Origin

    But as of May 2019, ContextSearch web-ext by Mike B is my choice.

    - Highly customizable, way more than others
    - Uses search engines registered for Built-in One Click Search Engines. So if it works from search bar, it should work for context menu as well.
  • Thumb up,pretty good!
  • Good job Mike

    Absolutely perfect! Thanks a lot.
    I have in mind 1-2 more useful options to suggest.
    Is here a proper place or I might use your support email address?

    Thank you for your response and effort.
    I can understand the possible technical limitations, but I would only like to stress the importance and usefulness of such an “Open in SideView” CS added option:
    In this way, one could easily lookup for any selected words/phrases, in a multitude of resources like encyclopaedia, dictionary, translation, TTS, etc. sites, WITHOUT having to leave one’s current tab/page.
    Now, this is possible only by using “per resource/site” specialized add-ons like QuickDictionary or by opening the wanted resource/site in the SideView through existent bookmarks and then copying/pasting the looked up words/phrases.

    * By “Side Bar” I meant that of FF, not the “Side Bar” of CS. In resent versions of FF opening links/bookmarks in its Side Bar is possible using the SideView addon.

    Great addon!
    What about an additional option “Open in Side Bar” in the Search Actions settings?
    Thank you!

    Open In Sidebar option added to Search Actions in v1.9.9. There are limitations, however.

    1. No POST engine compatibility
    2. Sidebar must be opened manually by the user to see results

    There are likely more issues but I haven't tested much.

    (edit 4-4-19)
    I can give it a shot. If you have a github account and are familiar with sideloading, you can start a thread at the support site and help test the progress.

    I tried that a while back but the sidebar isn't handled like a regular tab and some things simply won't work. POST engines fail completely as a result of the limited back-end. I'll give the API another look, but I think it's intended more for as a UI for the add-on, not an alternative tab for browsing or search results.
  • This extension does NOT WORK AT ALL when the profile folder is at different driver of firefox.(66.0b)
    I always use the -profile in the shortcut to split the browser and the config apart.
    For example, it works when Profile is in C:\ and failed when Profile in D:\ no matter the characters in the path(Browser is in C:\ in both case)
    However, the job is really very well done I have to say, 2 stars is just to draw the attention and will changed after reply
    Issue should be resolved in 1.9.6+. Thanks for the help

    1. 爆炸丰富的触发操作

    2. 爆炸丰富的后续操作

  • Well, everything works right from the start. Even importing my search file from previous Firefox version. Yes, it has a lot of advanced settings and I like it. Thanks to the developer for this great addon!
  • This extension has a very unexpected side-effect! Viewing a website's code via Fx developer tools (but not 'View Page Source') shows code added by ContextSearch. That makes website development difficult. A lot of head-scratching before locating the cause of the bizarre looking stuff that I didn't put there. Disable ContextSearch web-ext and it disappears. Switched back to ContextSearch web-ext Lite.

    Update: Did not occur with the lite version. Emailed author, and quickly fixed in 1.9.5. Addon has a ton of options; I use only the added context menu search items. If you encounter this issue in 1.9.5, try turning off some options.

    The ability to import one-click search engines from Firefox makes setup a breeze. I really like this ext as long as it doesn't interfere with my web dev.
    What you're seeing is called a content script, and it's how addons using the new webextensions API interact with web pages and provide a user interface. It's not a bug or some malicious code.


    The Lite version is going to do the same thing but it's been depreciated and no longer receiving updates so I wouldn't recommend using it.
  • Wonderful
    That's no good. I'd like to troubleshoot that bug with you if you wouldn't mind. I've tried importing several old search.json.mozlz4 files and can't duplicate the error. If you have a github account, I'll open an issue there.

    What platform, FF version are you on?

    There's a 15s timeout for the import function while it tries to download icons. Does it hang after the timeout?

    Are there any errors in the developer console when you try to import? (url bar -> about:debugging -> Enable Add-on debugging -> ContextSearch web-ext -> debug )
