  • One of the best Addons. But with the actuell update not to use. Very very pity. Hope there came a update.
  • Does not work at ff 56.0 64bit
  • Adress bar not working,Firefox ver55.0.3(32bit)
  • Digitando apenas uma letra na barra de endereço do seu navegador, você poderá utilizar um mecanismo de busca específico. Isso é, para cada letra que você configurar.
    Com este add-on eu busco muito mais rápido em sites específicos, como youtube, google tradutor, wikipédia e todos os outros que configurei.
    Dica: Para adicionar a busca de algum site, utilize a URL gerada pela busca do site e substitua direitinho como o InstantFox ensina.
    Recomendo InstantFox para todos!
    Se você ainda não usa InstantFox ou não sabe usar, está perdendo tempo.
  • Add new search engine from this extension, give a shortcut (mine is go) and write %q to Search Url, now you can use it like this;
    'go mybeautifulwebsite.com'
  • This add on is abandoned for years! Now Days if you have problem with adress bar ...dont worry. Just type your address or words on search bar. Works for me.
  • Great idea and great "half"-made app! However typing in address bar not working at all, you can actually type in address bar, but when you press Enter the page will not respond and will stay as nothing happened and making address bar totally useless). Once fixed, deff will donate if possible and will change my raiting to 5*
  • Firefox has built in support for this now, you don't need any more addons.

    Right click a search field and select "Add a Keyword for this search"
    Enter the title and the keyword. example. I use 'g' for google and 'a' for amazon.

    These are saved as bookmarks and you can edit them in the bookmark menu, that also means they're easy to transfer from computer to computer.

    You can also add a keyword to any other bookmarks.
    Posted from Firefox version 52.0
  • I can't get it working in FF 50.0.2+. Does any of you have it working in FF 50.0.2+?

    I still have to use this fix for InstantFox http://www.pand.li/fix-instantfox

    I hope someone fixes this plugin soon! :(
  • This plug in is broken! use fastest-search as alternative:

  • Hello, I´m using your add-ons for years maybe even from first version and I like it! It is primary add-on on all and any computers.

    Could u please update it.... because Search Bar is not useful at all and I never use it Disabled by InstantFox :)

    I will still give you 5 stars is/was I hope not awesome add-on!

    "Fastest Search" Is not very good no right click search I will use this addon even if my url doesn`t work a lot better then "Fastest Search" Who will need only one page in that small window this is youtube no one!! What ppl need is own page with simple right click menu and page names.
  • Ребята смотрите и допиливайте, дополнение очень удобное и хорошее, но с недавних пор перестала работать адресная стока. И судя по отзывам не только не у меня одного и значит баг не профиксен до сих пор. И посим 1, за невнимательность к пользователям.
  • Здравствуйте, пользуюсь давно, очень полезное дополнение, появилась проблема: в адресной строке не работает поиск, не работает переход по ссылке вставленной из буфера или набранной в ручную, при отключении дополнения всё нормально, пробовал на чистом браузере. Спасибо.
  • This has been my favourite and most used add-on for many years ... what a HUGE shame that it has (apparently) been abandoned and it messes with Firefox functions. To the devs: I'd happily pay a sizable software fee for a fully functional copy!!

    Fortunately a workaround is easy enough, see below., so it's still worth 5 stars!
  • This is a great add-on, but sadly since approximately one year of FF-versions, it deactivates the history of visited (or open) websites. It would be really great if this was fixed, then i will upgrade to 5 stars :-)
  • Firefox50.1.0ではロケーションバーへURLを貼り付けても移動できなくなる
  • При включении дополнения перестает работать адресная строка. Исправляется только отключением дополнения.
  • Здравствуйте. При включённом InstantFox Quick Search не работает переход по введённому адресу.
  • FF 50.0.2 it working again // у меня заработало
  • I abosulutely love this idea of a feature in firefox. But I can't live without suggested bookmarks/history for the sites I regularly visit. Disabling and hoping for future update fixing this.
  • Thank you for this addon! Definitely changed my life after all those years..

    For everybody out there seeking an alternative I want to tell you mine:

    * Install addon: Search Engine Creator https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/search-engine-creator/
    * Visit duckduckgo.com
    * Set your preferences on top right and copy the link from "Show Bookmarklet and Settings Data"
    * Create a new search engine with this url in the addon. You can search e.g. `foobar` and then replace `foobar` in URL with `{searchTerms}`
    * Set as default in Firefox Preferences → Search
    * Now just enter !bangs in urlbar/searchbar to get a list of duckduckgo BANGS (it must have approximately a thousand of keywords, like !gat for Google-Austria, !osm OpenStreetMap, !we English Wikipedia, ........)

    Have Fun, rock on & on
  • A great extension but it no longer works.

    Thank you to the developers for maintaining it as long as you could.
  • I have used instantfox a lot in the last couple of years. It made my surfing experience way faster and efficient. Unfortunately development has stopped (apparantly) and the number of bugs has increased to a level where I cannot use it anymore.

    For everybody looking for an alternative addon. I have moved to fastest search (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/fastest-search/) which is a bit more complicated but more customizable and offers a lot of functionality.
  • Can not move page by entering URL in address bar

    Address bar paste and go can not be done

  • Thank you for the years of support. My web browsing with this extension saved me many hours of typing/copying/pasting over the time I've used it. As a power-user, I cannot 'live' without such a convenience and increased productivity.

    So, thank you for developing it and supporting it all this time. :)

    But...life moves on and now there's another solution I'm using. This info below is to help other refugees looking for the perfect replacement (IMO). Have no worries, there's a savior for us power-users.

    Behold: Context Search X (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search-x/)

    *Based on Ben Basson's Context Search: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search/

    CSX brings a bit more customizations/tweaks to the table.

    My current configuration- screencaps:

    How it looks for my Context menu: http://imgbox.com/m6Ewcizm

    Managing Search Engines List option box: http://imgbox.com/X8TNW5Bi

    It's very easy to use/setup. Just install, configure as needed. Here's some help: At http://mycroftproject.com/ - you can click to install the search engines you desire. CSX will pick them up and add to your Context menu. :)

    You can re-arrange the engines as needed, show on the Context Main menu rather than Sub-menu (or not). Add site search with a particular installed search engine even.

    I cannot at this time find a fault with Context Search X. I think it is a perfect replacement for Intantfox.

    I hope the above info helps for those looking to migrate from Instantfox.

    Again, thank you to the developer. And thank you as well to the dev of Context Search X. :)
