When I first built Find All, there was nothing like it for Firefox. Since then, Firefox has changed and so has the add-on ecosystem. I've decided not to maintain Find All beyond Firefox 24. For Firefox 25+, I recommend installing FindBar Tweak instead. It has more features than Find All, like the ability to find matches in all tabs, and the ability to search PDF files using Firefox's built-in PDF viewer.To all who have supported Find All in the past, thank you.(Original description for Find All:)
This add-on replaces the find bar's Highlight All button with a powerful Find All button, which highlights all search terms found and displays them in an easy-to-view list. The list displays a few words before and after the search term so you can quickly see the context of each match. It also shows a total of how many times the search term was found on the page. As of version 3.0, you can perform separate searches in different tabs.
How to use Find All:
Once it is installed, start Firefox and click on Firefox menu > Find...
In the Find bar at the bottom of the screen, type in a word or phrase to search for and then click on the Find All button. A list will appear underneath the Find bar with the results of your search, and all matches will be found on the web page. Also, the total number of matches appears in the Find bar status area. You can scroll through the list to easily see the context of each found result and jump to the part of the web page you want by clicking on a list item. The list may be made larger or smaller by dragging the separator bar above the Find bar.
By default, the Find All button replaces the Highlight All button on the Find bar. If you would like to have the Highlight All button back on the Find bar, you may set this preference in the Find All add-on options dialog (Firefox menu > Add-ons, click Options button on Find All).
Other options include:
- Don't show the list of found results when the Find All button is clicked (only the total number of matches will show in the Find bar status area).
- Change the font size of the results list
- Alternate background color of rows in results list
- Select matches on the page instead of highlighting them
- Show close button on right side of find bar instead of the left side
- And more...
Find All also works in the browser's View Source window.Note:
Find All may not be compatible with other extensions/themes that modify the find bar or the add-on bar. Also, Find All may not work well on web pages that contain lots of dynamic (i.e., frequently updated in real time) content.
