Googlebar replacement - Missing My Local search Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I'm still using googlebar and it works well but has some impairments with recent FF versions and no real support. Tried googlebar lite and it seems to work ok. What's missing is the googlebar My local search function where the user supplies a default address and the my local button triggers a google map search near that location. Put "paint stores" in search bar, hit my local and it shows paint stores near my address. A plain map search shows 1/3 of the country...far less convenient. Please consider adding such a feature.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Poor local search Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Tried to replace googlebar [sill works FF 12], With googlebar, I can input my address which is stored in the preferences..works great for localized searches. Googlebar lite has input on a web page...didn't accept my address or any variation despite my being able to find this address in google maps. I applaud this project because googlebar is orphaned, but it would be nice if local search worked the way the original googlebar did with the address stored in the toolbar.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
