1 problem tha needs addressing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have used this add on for a while and while i appreciate it a great deal there is something that really annoys me.

Say for example i do a right click context menu search with Google, ie. highlight a word > right click> "search Google for" it opens a new tab as normal, i click on the tab and the search term appears in the search box. which is fine...

The problem is that when you press the little black down arrow in the search box, the only history which has been manually typed into the box will show up. meaning that any of my numerous right click context searches will never be recorded in the search box for future use.

If this was resolved i would give it a 5 star rating, but as it is have given this add on a still very decent 4 stars...

Jonah PLEASE look into this small issue would make me a very happy person indeed!

Use the Googlebar Lite Context Menu

If you use the Googlebar Lite context menu items, your highlighted words will get added to the search history. I do not trap queries performed via mechanisms outside of Googlebar Lite.

While this is not a perfect replacement for my beloved Google Toolbar, it is a good substitute. I do wish there was a way to make my old Google Toolbar work with FF 11 though.

Run fine... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Run fine with FF 10.0.2 (and older).

@theCatman

Too limited Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Great idea - better would have been to leave the original compatability!

Where are all the other toolbar options like dashboard and movies?

Why does it need to take up a whole new line eliminating valuable screen real estate?

For me, unusable

Could be a godsend but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I installed this because I cannot live without the Google highlighter - however, following a reinstall recently (1) the highlighter no longer toggles* on/off when the icon is clicked, I have to refresh the page (a minor nuisance), and (2) although I've set Google.co.uk as the search site I get American results (a major nuisance). I'm sure these failings will be fixed eventually and then it will be a 5-star add-on. It's very neat 'n tidy.

*Yes it does, depending on site, so one star added on.

Make sure you have the "Use secure search where possible" option disabled, and the .co.uk searches should work. It used to be that Google only offered secure search at the .com address, so I force all secure traffic through that location. I see that they have changed their policy on that, so I will make this change in the next release.

I've started using this extension since the last version of Google Toolbar apparently doesn't work in the latest version of Nightly. I like this extension as a replacement pretty well, but it really needs a GMail button and Google suggest integration.

Vunedabar!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

SIMPLE & AWESOME!!! I am SO happy to have found this! My favorite and most used function of the google toolbar was the highlighter. It was the main reason to use google - I was lost without it and thinking of going Chrome. Now I don't have to. Thanks SO much Johah!!!

Great Tool to replace Googles Toolbar wihich is gone anyway. Love it!
I'm only missing the double quotes ("") around the Drag and Drop text to be searched. Would love this to be added in future.

Google translator Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would it be possible you add the option of google translate in a button?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this...but...seems to be broken in Firefox 8.0. The searches no longer populate the bar when a new page is loaded.

So...perform a search--click the link in the Google results...and...the bar is now empty.

Hopefully there will be an upgrade soon as not having the terms carry over negates the major functionality of this essential tool.

Version 4.8.2, which has been submitted here for review, will correct this issue.

Excellent apart from 1 thing... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It would earn an extra star if it could do the predictive search thing that the real toolbar did until its demise.

At the moment it only predicts your own previously entered searches, rather than the ones everyone has done through Google.

how to search highlighted words Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very handy addon.
But, can you add one more functionality? If I drag to select a word (or words) on a web page, right click, can there be an option to search the word inside this page or hightlight them.

suche auf seiten wie Wiki / Wissen.de Rated 3 out of 5 stars

ich vermisse die Möglichkeit auf anderen Seiten wie Wiki oder Wissen.de direkt zu suchen indem man den begriff in das Suchfeld der Toolbar eingibt, wie es bei der offiziellen Googlebar möglich ist. Sprich das Toolbar-Suchfeld wird z.B. zum Wiki-Suchfeld , ohne das man zuerst auf die Wikiseite muss ...

Add Gmail and Google Calendar Buttons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Fine add-on.

But..It would be perfect if it were able to log you into your Google Account and add Gmail and Google Calendar Buttons to Options for immediate access. Other customizable buttons would be an added boon of course..

Google Toolbar is no longer compatible with newer builds of Firefox. Above suggestions would allow this add-on to replace that toolbar entirely.

Highlighter only one word per Para Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The highlighter only highlights one word of search string in paragraph, and when u click multiple times on highlight ON/OFF, it highlight same words subsequently in the paragraph, Well this feature is very well working in previous edition of mozilla (in previous versions 4.0 or less), so i thought to bound to use previous non secure slow versions of mozilla, pls fix it..... i think it should work on both latest versions and for chrome
Pls make superfast highlighter version even option to disable other possible features to make its processing fast and user compatability....

Very very thankx in advance.......

Request to link with Google account Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If the addon can link with Google account, so that it can give search history and google bookmark suggestion, it will be great!! Also, the flexible length of the toolbar can cause some errors to toolbar placed following it. Please see can the length be fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic alternative to the now defunct Google Toolbar, since it seems there will no longer be support for FF5 and later.

I have a question regarding the search history. It appears there's no real logic as to how the search history queries are stored. For instance, a search I did a month ago is still at the top of my search history, and hasn't budged.

How exactly does the search history get sorted? By most searched? By last searched?

Would you be able to add an option whereby we can choose how we want the search history to be displayed? Such as option for sorting alphabetically, by most search, by last searched. That would be great.

One of my favorite features of Google Toolbar was how it stored my search history, so I can go back and forth looking for my latest queries. I believe the original Google Toolbar always sorted by last search made.

Anyhow, thanks so much for the continued support. This is a fantastic add-on I would be lost without.

Very Functional Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works with Firefox 5, is unobtrusive and fills a need. I used the official google toolbar previously and was disappointed with the incompatibility in Firefox 5. I am happy I found this add-on.

I would love to have the search function where as I type words into the bar, it can suggest things as I go. Made it a great feature of googles own toolbar, it would be great on here. You know. The search predictions as you type? I would love that on here.
