Broken on v27 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't seem to work at all on Firefox 27. Completely prevents me from even using my Search function, and never seems to report itself as installed to the Addons page.

Broken in Firefox 25 and above Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not only does the add on not work, it breaks the entire Find function in Firefox, starting with version 25.0. Author has apparently stated he will not update the plugin.

Add-on compatibility

I have updated the add-on to mark it as compatible with Firefox 24, hopefully this will prevent people from installing it on newer Firefox versions.

See 'Quicksaver''s review below and install 'FindBar Tweak' instead.

It was good in older Firefox. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It was good in older Firefox. Please update the maxversion so it won't install in the latest Firefox, it breaks the find function completely.

Will break completely in the near future Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am posting this review with the approval of the developer, who has kindly agreed to it and has confirmed by e-mail that he's unlikely to continue maintaining the add-on in the future.

Find in Numbers provides a nice informative way to let you know how many occurrences of a phrase the webpage has. However, it does have some issues in larger pages, and I agree with previous reviewers that the "current result" indication would also be tremendously useful. In addition, this add-on will break completely with the upcoming Firefox 25.

I have written my own add-on, called "FindBar Tweak", which also has a similar results counter. I would invite everyone to switch to FBT; it displays the wanted "current result", doesn't limit with a big number of results or has noticeable performance issues in large pages, and ensures it will remain compatible with future versions of Firefox!

I'm sorry for the spam, but I believe my add-on now becomes a necessary alternative to Find In Numbers, since it will completely break the find bar in the near future.

I love this addon but broken in 25.0b1. Find bar doesn’t show up if the add-on is enabled. Mozilla changed the way find bar looks.

Could use current result feature Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Like the other reviewers, I would like the current result feature but great job putting something out there that for some fucking reason firefox doesn't have by default!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I agree with Kira.
Show number of current find result and total.
Text can be any. The easiest e.g. - 1/25
1 - current find result
25 - total matches

Has conflicts with other Find addons Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works fine by itself but if installed with other Find extensions it will create problems. It causes the Find Toolbar Tweaks and Find All extensions to not work if this is enabled.

Still Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Here we are in FF 10 now, and as far as I'm aware, this simple feature still hasn't been integrated. I'm rather surprised. Like others have said, it would be nice to show which instance of the word or phrase you're on like in Google Chrome (I thought it did this?), but I still find this add-on to be very useful.

Works fine but would be more useful if it also showed which search number you were currently viewing. For example if there were 10 matches for a search word and you were looking at the 3rd one from the top of the page then it should say 3/10 or 3 of 10. I think that would be more helpful.

On Ctrl+F he blink "Increase Limit" text even is not increased?

Good add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Indeed simple, but useful add-on. Should be by default in any browser.

Find in Numbers 1.8 works in FF4 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon and version 1.8 works fine in firefox 4, I was hoping Firefox 4 will have it without an addon but it doesn't:{

Doesn't work in Firefox 4.0 nightly (4.0b8pre). "X matches" doesn't show up.

Also, "X of Y matches would be a more useful feature.

Speed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you! But can you not recalculate quantity on find next? (recalculate if search text changed only). Because it became very slowly when quantity more than 5000-10000.

Good but needs XML Support Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Has been quite useful for web pages, but what I was really hoping for was being able to count matches in XML. Hopefully this will be a feature in the future.
