- by Firefox user 7100302, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Coming from Context Search X I'm glad there's a worthy alternative.
I have a SUGGESTION regarding the url connection to the favicon service via proxy:
why not make a call ONLY if a new search engine has been added by the USER?
And store all favicon/pics so no further calls are needed.
And if you also include an option to disable all (further) URL calls to whatever destination (proxy or not), maybe everybody would be happy (I hope).
- by ADvi, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Is it possible to import my search engines that already presents in search box?Unfortunately, this is something we can't implement right now due to technical limitations in the webextensions API. If and when Mozilla developers give us access to the search bar, we will definitely provide you with the possibility to import your search bar search engines into Context Search. For the mean time, I'm afraid you'll just have to be patient as these things can take some time.
- by Firefox user 6328373, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Amazon search / all departments:
open preferences - enter above line at Amazon - save preferences
- by Anjelus, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This really streamlines my browsing. Is there a way, though, to modify the Amazon search to search all departments rather than only for books? That would be perfect for me (not that I don't appreciate the book-only search).If you delete the Amazon (book search) engine you can add a new search engine with the following URL:
That gives you all results on Amazon, not only books.
Thank you for using Context Search.
- by Firefox user 11478734, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5When selecting a text (left button key-up), and without clicking the right mouse button, there could be an option to show already the icons. In this case, right clicking would still show the menu list.Your idea about activating Context Search when making a selection is definitely a good idea. Since it will take quite some work and at the moment we have more urgent issues to tackle, this won't be available any time soon (if you know how to code you're welcome to submit a pull request).
Thank you for using Context Search.
- by Relven, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I am enjoying this addon but I am hoping you plan on adding this feature in the future. Is this function on your to do list? It would come in handy to process multiple searches without having to right click multiple times to use more than one search engine.
Update: The feature you mention is helpful but only to an extent i.e. allowing more than one set of multi engine multi tab searches? What I mean is I have a few engines I use for one type of search and then another few engines I use for another type of search. Is this possible and I am not seeing it in the settings?Your feature request will not be implemented. However, version 3.51 now includes the possibility to select multiple search engines to be used in a Multitab search. The search engines are selected by checking the check boxes between the keywords and the query string urls in the extension's preferences page. You must then not forget to save your preferences. Finally, carry out your searches by selecting the "Multiple tabs search" menu item from the context menu.
- by Firefox user 13346095, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5EDIT: Thanks to the developer for his answer and updates. I'm not fond of NC licenses, so I will stick with Context Search WebExtension (and I like their idea to directly use bookmarks).
The "Custom License" is completely empty, and there is no link to a source code repository.
Up to version 3.14 it was under GPL, which is great. Why did it changed? Where is the source code?
Is this now a closed source software which will retrieve and handle all our private browsing data with "care"?...Hi, we're now using Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. You can see that here: https://github.com/odebroqueville/contextSearch/blob/master/LICENSE.md
You can see the source code here:
I've added a link to the issues on GitHub as the support link and a link to the source code repository as the addon startpage link.
If you like my answer, please consider to update your review rating. Thank you for using Context Search!
- by Firefox user 5926074, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Searching within the site is also available, and I am thankful.
Can not you remodel below?
1. When displaying the context menu, please position Context Search at its top position.
2. Context Search breakdown (Search this site with google, Option, Google, Google Maps, Bing .........) is displayed, but "Search this site with google" and "Option" I want to move to the bottom.
3. Do not move the cursor to a breakdown and want to be able to search with the default search engine at "Context Search" position.
As mentioned above, thank you for your consideration.
- by antistress, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5Hi, I used to make use of Ben Basson's Context Search which is not compatible with Firefox 57+ therefore thank you for making this webextension alternative :)
2 suggestions :
- Having 2 search engine lists to maintain (firefox internal + context search one) doesn't feel optimum nor practical : it would be great if Context Search could make use of Firefox Search Engines
- Another extension that I use to complete Ben Basson's Context Search is Add to search bar, whic is not compatible ever with Firefox 57. It would be cool if your Context Search extension could propose it
Thanks again :)Due to technical limitations, we currently cannot integrate properly with the search engines stored in Firefox. We will integrate with your Firefox search engines when it becomes possible.
Good idea, we will consider your second suggestion.
Clarification: we're talking about detecting search engines on a certain website and adding those to Context Search.
- by Firefox user 10572342, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This works good in the latest nightly. It took some time but I got the same search engines exactly as I had them in previous firefox versions. Context search is a must feature for me.
One request: would it be possible to have an option that opens search results in the same tab? Context Search X is the only one that had it but it's no longer available for 57+.
Update: thanks for adding that same tab option in version 3.19, it works great when searching from a web page. Note: there is a bug if you try hightlighting text when searching from about:support, it won't search in the same tab but it does if you open a new tab.
- by U.C., 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5It would be great if the user could choose whether to see the search engine bar immediately or in the context menu. As shown by the Add-on "Selected Search". After marking a text passage a popup with your search engines will be shown. There you can select the search engine that will be used on the text fragment.
- by EffPeh, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great! A really well thought-out extension.
I used "Add to Search Bar" before I find this tool. But this extension is much more better. I love the possibility to use a JSON file to customize my list.
It's not that important, but it would be nice if I could determine the order of the search engines by myself. Maybe the way I created it in the JSON file. Thank you for this excellent extension. :)
Windows 10/64, FF 55.0.3 (64-Bit)Your feature request might eventually be implemented, but I can't give you a time frame for this right now. For now, the search engines list is sorted alphabetically.
- by Reggie, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Works well but doesn't seem to recognize characters such as # and &. If included in selected text, everything after it is ignored. Searching for them alone redirects to main search homepage.
