As always, this add-on is great, in principle. One of the most important add-ons in my view anyway. However, and sorry for having to say that again, FindBar Tweak makes user editable text boxes on webpages almost unusable.
As soon as you highlight any text in an editable text box, FindBar Tweak goes completely crazy highlighting stuff all over the place. Even if you highlight one single letter only in a text box, every single occurrence of that very letter gets highlighted not only in the text box, but in the entire current webpage:
Sorry but this bug is pathetic, and I will continue to moan about it until it gets finally fixed -- still hoping that FindBar Tweak does not turn into abandonware after all because it seems that there has been no significant development and bugfixing since January.
Hoping for a fix which will make me donate a significant amount.
First of all, reviews are not the place for bug reports or support requests, which is why your reviews keep being deleted by moderators, and this has a simple solution as I keep telling you: disable the preference "Fill the findbar with the selected text".
However, that is the intended behavior by default when using that preference, if you select some text anywhere, the findbar will find it, everywhere, it doesn't distinguish between the places where the text is in a webpage.
I have already told you (repeatedly) that I will add the option to restrict this to text boxes or to wherever the text selection is. But this relies on the current rewrite of the add-on I'm doing, because as the add-on is written now, it's next to impossible to add what you want.
I've also already told you I have not abandoned development! Last month I spent over two weeks almost full-time just on the FBT rewrite and I'm not even half-way done. Yes, it is that drastic, but I'm surprised you keep complaining to be honest, you've been to the support page and you've seen the amount of work I still have to do on FBT (and not everything is listed in the issues there even, there's more!).
I do understand that for you the current behavior is not optimal, but that's not even a bug, it's the expected behavior. Again, if you don't like it, disable that preference, it's really that simple, that preference wasn't made for those (like me and apparently you) who select text all the time in their browser while writing, or even just reading.
And you must also understand that I don't live for (or of!) FBT, I will add this option you ask for but it will still take time, as there's a lot more that I have to do before it. Honestly, using words like "pathetic" and "abandon" won't help with this task at all, if anything they only take away my will to dedicate to it the little free time I have...
