Fantastic plugin using it every day, sadly not available with Firefox Quantum.
Can you please re-code this plugin for Firefox Quantum
Thanks great tool for media libraries and linking to content providers, there is a tvdb but not working on watefox 54.2.2
Conisdered making one for tmdb? There is one in addons but 3years out of date
You have to modernize it. Please.
I have used this addon for years.
As a movie junkie I use it all the time. Higlight text, rightclick, search IMDB, done
Sadly it is not compatible with multiprocess so I have had to disable it
Please fix it :)
This is a handy little plug-in that's useful to me since I use right-mouse click a lot.
I hope with the changes coming up at the end of the year, this becomes a Webextension and continues to be supported.
add-on yould use option to open imdb tab in the background. Other then that, okay.
i recommend the Add-On "Add to Search Bar" instead.
Just wanted to mention that imdb is NOT NEUTRAL!
" In 1998, it became a subsidiary of AMAZON.com who were then able to use it as an advertising resource for selling DVDs and videotapes."
IMDB is the best overall entertainment related information site on the Internet, worldwide. The search works perfectly well. How do I start... there is just so much available on the IMDB site. Virtually everything is hyper-linked and searchable. For what I want to see, it's all free.
I can search for a particular show and I may want to find similar shows or find the name of one of the actors. If you're on the movie display, you will see the cast members and then you can see others that had anything to do with the film and its making; release dates around the world, other names the film is called. It will display 12 small thumbnails for "similar" TV shows or movies. Now if you click on one of the cast members or search directly for an actor, the actor's IMDB site will have an historical bio which may include how the actor got started, plans for personal and professional, and famous family members. There is one or two pictures which, if you click, you can see all (that you don't see) the pics as a slide show.
The actor will have a list showing virtually everything he or she has ever appeared in, is currently filming, or is going to be filming or appearing in sometime many years in the future.
If you watch a moderate amount of television, movies, or like gossip and you are not using IMDB regularly, then you are really missing out, literally. IMDB is just one of my most important sites. Oh, the site also has news, and excerpts from articles from other site related to whatever is on the page you looking at. You can click on "read more" or something like to that effect to link over to the main site with the article. I rarely write reviews and I've spent quite some time trying to review the site because it has "given me" so much that I want to give something back to IMDB. I hope I've done that. I realize this review is about the search so I will copy and paste this over on IMDB.
Maybe it's something to do with a new Firefox update, but it won't add to the list of search engines in the search bar. I've tried downloading it 3 times and still nothing.
Usually I have to find information about some celebrities and give my opinion on something connected with the star. I used to search google, bing, yahoo, imdb for all kind of information but with this extension I can see the entire IMDB info and only pick the interesting parts for me.
I cannot say that is useless but I think you can copy a name and paste it in IMDB. Yes it's easier to click the right button and see the result loaded but still think is some kind of pointless.
IMDB searching hasn't been so easy as it is now.
Fast, easy to use and very helpful.
Харесва ми, не е нужно вече да има продължително търсене по други сайтове. Само едно маркиране на име (на актьор или филм) е достатъчно и информацията е намерена. Много е удобвно и бързо.
Just one click away of the desired info. You need to select something and there you got it by IMDB. It's very helpful for fans like me.
It's great idea. You'd love it. If you are interested in some actor or movie or cinema thing you can find what you need in a click.
So, you´re reading an article and it talks about a movie, or a movie star, or a movie character. Or, you see a list of new movies, and don´t know which one to rent/download. And you think to yourself: "I should look this up on IMDB". So you highlight the text, and right-click. Alas, your search box engine was last set to search on google. So now you have to go through google´s results and find the imdb link. Or, if you know you're going to search for a lot of movies, you change the search box to search on IMDB, knowing that you'll have to change it back to Google.
No need for all this. This adds an IMDB search for your highlighted text that is ALWAYS there, independent from your search engine box, available with just a right-click, and one that opens on a new tab.
Select text, and right click, and click search IMDb, easy as pie.
Here's an idea:
The search function at IMDb is not as good as Google. So how about making an add-on that adds the user's selection to a Google search: site:imdb.com "movie title gets put here"
If someone could do that, then that would open the door for other Google searches as well, such as:
intitle:index.of "movie title gets put here" mkv OR mp4
Seems I cannot install it after download and restart search engine is not available.

Makes it a lot easier to search IMDB. This is a very useful tool especially for torrenters. Right click on text on any page and hit Search IMDB icon. A new tab (page) will open.
