Great addon. But... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have problem. Sometimes when I write queries, suggestion list shows up for 1 second and disappears leaving behind only a 1-2px height white line going across the search/address bar. Sometimes it comes back after I write (or delete) another letter. It's random but it happens quite often. Anything I can do about it? Thank you.

Good work but with Firefox 37beta the drop down list of most visited web sites doesn't appear.
Please fix and then is perfect.
Thanks.

Bookmark keywords still not working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FF36, Foobar 2.1.1. I tried recreating a bookmark with keyword as suggested here, http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2908241&p=14041535. I also always use a space after keywords as suggested in the thread, but neither worked. 2.0.1 still works on FF36 so I'm using it. Bookmark keywords are working with it.

Indeed, was working nicely on FF 35.
Still runs on FF 36 but completion is no more working (aka no drop down list with relevant choices)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

Fixed - Thanks for using Foobar! :)

Great addon but it's not working with Firefox 36. It's as dead as a dodo. Fix it ASAP please!

Hello encoder,

Being paranoid with online privacy, I'd like to know if Foobar sends any queries if the option "perform search suggestions only when keywords are used" is checked and I'm writing an address without any keywords.

Other than that, great addon, certainly one of my essentials.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

Great Question

Hey - I'm sorry it took me awhile to answer this question, but I wanted to re-check the code to be sure of the answer...

And the answer is: Foobar does not send any search suggestion requests if:

- You've turned suggestions off
- You've selected "perform search suggestions only when keywords are used" and you have not used any keywords

To repeat: No requests are sent (none at all) in these cases.

Thanks for the great question - and for using Foobar!

Suggestions not working on Firefox 36 + (Firefox Beta and higher).

I can't imagine myself using Firefox without this addon anymore. So it would be a pitty if Foobar will not be fully capable when Firefox stable gets the update to ver. 36.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

I don't generally test against beta versions - I wait until the release; which, I know, means fixes come a little later than they strictly need to... But, this is fixed now, anyway - Thanks for using Foobar!

Keyword bookmarks won't work after installing this addon. ( http://lifehacker.com/196779/hack-attack-firefox-and-the-art-of-keyword-bookmarking )

Update:
Yes, the bookmarked site appears in the dropdown results. But it may be not the first one. The default behavior of Firefox is that whenever you type a keyword bookmark and press enter, the browser goes directly to the mentioned website. But after installing foobar I have to select it from those results.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

I've been unable to reproduce this issue. When I type text into Foobar that matches a bookmark keyword, I get said bookmark in my results as expected. This works even when the keyword has nothing to do with the bookmark itself - like a keyword of "xxxx" for mozilla.org.

I've done some searching, and it seems Firefox itself may have recently made some changes that effect how bookmark keywords work - perhaps that's the issue? See this thread, for example: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2908241&p=14041535

Issue about blurred favicon persists. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi, just so you know that the 2.1 version doesn't fix the problem of not displaying favicon of default search engine at HiDPI.

Besides, I also observed that when creating a new window (Menu bar -> File -> New Window), the favicon is the icon of this plugin, rather than the one of my default search engine. Here is a demonstration: http://d.pr/i/1hSfG

Great add-on. I made an improvement to it so it can mimic even more the defunct Google Toolbar. The diff file is available here : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B57mZRKGfNrnWW5qbG1PUUhZeDg/view?usp=sharing

A kiss excellent addon =)

Here it won't work anymore with addon's default prefs and 'Organize Search Engines' addon installed. It's like it was simply bypassed, see:
1. If 'browser.search.showOneOffButtons' = true, search field doesnt show at all
2. If 'browser.search.showOneOffButtons' = false, search field shows and cannot be hidden.

In v2.1 keyword searches from the address bar do not work. Also I don't know if it is intentional or not but the foobar icon is shown instead of the search engine provider icon in the address bar.

The latest version, 2.1, stops cybersearch from working and prevents speed dial numbers from working in the address bar

Suggestions not working properly Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems like no matter what I try, it only gives me the default Google search suggestions (or DuckDuckGo in the case of 2.1) for all of my search engines. The built-in search box gives me the proper suggestions however :s

Great add-on overall but unfortunately proper suggestions are my top priority.

This Add-on always uses Google suggestions, even if the search engine is not google. This bypasses privacy measures, e.g. when the default query is sent to DuckDuckgo - the suggests are still from google

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

If a search engine provides a suggestions provider, that provider is used by Foobar. If not, I use a default provider - which used to be Google's, but is now DuckDuckGo's (as of v2.1).

Great extension. Seems the author is no longer reachable and no update in almost a year.
Would like to have the ability to resize the search/address bar in the options.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

New update (v2.1) has been submitted for review, and should be out soon. I haven't included a way to resize the address/search bars, however, as I don't think this particular feature fits with Foobar's goal, which is simply to combine the 2 bars together. Thank you, however, for the suggestion - and for the great review :D

Max number of URL suggestion broken Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Even I made it 50 it shows 13.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

The maximums are now 10 each for both search and history/bookmark suggestions - for a total of 20. I chose these numbers for a few reasons, like search suggestion providers only returning a max of 10 suggestions, and Firefox's UI really only being able to handle displaying 10-20 results in the suggestions dropdown (10 for the 'Rich' style, 20 for 'Simple').

Note: this change has been made in v2.1, which is currently submitted for review.
