- by Jose Martins, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks for this update (1.6.2) and its "Old Firefox Style" option. FF post 57 was sorely missing the good old search bar.
Just a couple of things I hope you'll add in future:
- close after search
- empty search bar after search
again, thank you.> - close after search
Ready for 1.6.3
> - empty search bar after search
The current behavior is to display the last search on a per-session basis. The last search should be highlighted, ready to be replaced with the first keystroke. Closing Firefox will clear the last search from the session storage. Adding the option is trivial but I'm not sure it's necessary. Specifically, what issue are you having with the default behavior?
(edit) This was not working properly under linux. Fix ready for 1.6.3
- by The Beard Below My Chin, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This one is brilliant. I tried a couple context menu add-ons and this one is like context menu on steroids. It supports GET and POST methods which opens opportunities to many other services. You can use any icons you want. And it's highly configurable, more than other add-ons. It also adds toolbar icon that acts as an alternative to the search bar which saves screen real estate.
One thing that bothers me is that modifying the default engines; removing tracking parameters for example, results in a 'name already exist' error. Which is bizarre. (edit: fixed as of v18.104.22.168... That has to be a record fast response)
2) Search button: Save search history / always show last query
3) Search button: Make autocomplete optional
4) Search button: Match browser theme
5) Search button: Support middleclick
Thanks for taking the time and listening.> One thing that bothers me is that modifying the default engines; removing tracking parameters for example, results in a 'name already exist' error. Which is bizarre.
That's a definite bug that must have popped up when I added the ability to change the name. I'll fix that today.
v22.214.171.124 should fix the problem
(edit 6-15) Ready for v1.6.1
Are you wanting to access bookmarklets from the context menu when using the option to manage search engines via bookmarks? If you have a github account, start a new topic at the support site so I can get more info.

(edit 6-14) Having some problems with this one. Can't seem to get color values for built-in themes like Dark. I'll keep on it.
> 5) Search button: Support middleclick
Ready for v1.6.1
- by marcos, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Voltei a usar o Firefox só porque consegui encontrar essa extensão incrível, deveria vir nativa no Firefox de tanto que facilita a navegação. Obrigado ao desenvolvedor!
I went back to using Firefox just because I managed to find this amazing extension, it should come native in Firefox so much that it makes browsing easier. Thanks to the developer!
- by Firefox user 14025605, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5What a beautiful addon. I use the tiles/quick menu which I find quicker to use. Took a few minutes to set up and import my existing search engines. Dev provides full instructions so even I could do it!! And it's all working perfectly! A great must-have extension. Many thanks to the developer. Your hard work is much appreciated.
- by giantmarmot, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Works flawlessly. Really useful extension. I'm hoping that the developer will consider adding support for separators and folders. Thanks. :)
Reply to dev: Yes. Thanks. :)(edit v1.4.2)
Subfolders and separators for the context menu are live in beta for this release. Search engines can be organized from a bookmark folder after enabling the option and granting the Bookmarks permission.
Do you mean a tiered menu and separators in the context menu? I'll check it out.
- by philrj, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I'm thrilled to see such a simple-yet-powerful context search extension for FF 57+ and similar to the old, unsupported Context Search plugin we all loved. Big props to dev for making this happen and thank you thank you! ;)
- by Firefox user 13493718, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Super impressive. This is not just another context menu search extension, it's more than that! Unexpected but much appreciated features and customization. Seems to have good support and active development.
- by Soraj, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Hi Mike,
Looks Great Add-on
I am not computer geek. I could not make it work.
Can you post a video on Youtube? or write a procedure to show how to add search Engines and use them.
RegardsIf you click the Search Engines tab in ContextSearch options, you should see the following options
Choose which one suits you best (I recommend Auto). This will show new details below. There will be a clickable link next to the header that says "How-To" (Automatic How-To or Manual How-To). Click this to see gif video showing the basics of loading your search engines. If that isn't clear enough, edit your post and I'll give more details.
(edit) If you use Auto, be sure to install the native app
- by e2li, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Отличное расширение.
Особенно хорошо сделали опцию для создания поисковой системы через ПКМ по нажатию на поле поиска-сайта, с автоматическим подхватыванием адреса-поиска.
p.s Quick Menu dont working in Firefox 59.
Sorry. Everything is working. It was necessary to simply reinstall.Hmm that's odd. It's been working for me in FF59. Would you mind answering a few questions so I can help you troubleshoot?
What OS are you using?
What website isn't working?
Is Quick Menu enable in ContextSearch options?
Have you loaded your search engines?
(edit) Good deal!
- by colonelq, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5reply thanks
I think good add-on because use in textbox
I'm sorry, my English is not good
"Selection Context Search"(add-on) has function
close the popup window when scrolling
close the popup window after ? seconds
these two config to addTry 1.2.4b2. Added a few options for closing plus a way to keep the menu open for clicking multiple search engines
Do you use the 'close after ? seconds' option in the other add-on? It's not difficult to add, but I can't think of a scenario where it's useful.
