Doesn't work anymore in FF 41.x Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This was a good add-on, but the current version (22.214.171.124) breaks the awesome bar in FF 41.x. :(
Broken in FF41.0 [Edit - unofficial fix available] Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The AwesomeBar popup is broken in FF 41.0. Please see https://github.com/estivo/Instantfox/issues/115 for details.
I am putting this up here (too) in the hopes that somebody might have a workaround, as apparently this wonderful addon is no longer maintained.
Edit: FF 41 users, if you can't wait for the official fix, please see the same link [https://github.com/estivo/Instantfox/issues/115] for fixed versions.
Amazing !! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I tried to switch from Chrome several times and always failed and missing search from address bar was one of the major reasons. Now this extension makes the feature even better than what Chrome offers. I can't believe I missed this extension all this time! Really nice work guys.
It has some issues. Is brilliant but please fix them. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It has some issues, the last letter does not recognize and you put space or repeat the last letter to search properly that thing (This is happening about 1 year ago). Also, adding custom search does not show properly the thumbnail of them. Anyway is one of the greatest add-ons for firefox, but please fix those issues.This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Works just fine, but Adw Cleaner detects it as including malicious ware? (searchy.xpi)
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I like it first because I can add sites my self, and of course shortcuts to. Very easy to use and search that for sure :)
Anyway I only "hate" import/export it will be alot better if it was import/export from/is file and not from clipboard. If you made now update please fix this and make import/export to/from File.
Perfect Addon now I can search alot faster and alot easy with this addon. What me do without you guys Addon Developers :) I will tell you the truth I can`t use my browser without addons is impossible realy impossible. Addons make Browser alot better and for sure alot easy to use it!!
Please keep up to date :)
Great, with a few glitches Rated 4 out of 5 stars
InstantFox has been one of the first extensions I install on any Firefox setup for years. Lately I've encountered two glitches that make it annoying, though not unusable.
- cutting off the last character of search queries. As suggested below, this is fixed by turning off the instant feature or just remembering to put a space after every query.
- unable to select a search suggestion/autocomplete using the mouse. Clicking on a suggestion simply searches for whatever is in the address/search bar and does not select the suggestion. Only arrow keys + enter will select a suggestion.
Other than that I've had no trouble with it and it makes browsing a lot easier.
Not to crazy about it Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Not to crazy about it if you have a color themes it get all white out and you really can't see your search Engines
Great add-on once getting through small glitch Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a great add-on, something Firefox really needs.
If you are having issues with your search term being truncated or misinterpreted (specifically with Google), try turning off Instant Page Loading as mentioned by WindfallProphet.

Annoying bug with last character Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This bug exists for more than 6 months... shame on you!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works great! Best feature from Chrome now on Firefox!
10+ for this one ! :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very, very good tool ! You can fully customize it from instantFoxPlugins.js file inside firefox profile folder located in \AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles !

inverted setting Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for this great addon that I'm using for quite a while now...
With v3.0.0 and FF37+, the setting "launch search in new tab" seems to be inverted : if checked, stays in current tab, if unchecked opens new tab.
Favicon Fix? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Ver. 3.0.0 still not grabbing the favicons from engine sites. Is there a fix available, or possibly coming in next version?
InstantFox is Instant no longer Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you are finding InstantFox is ignoring the last character then try disabling instant preview.
Overall this is a great addon, despite that bug. I generally find Instant Preview to be overrated though, so if you are one who likes it then you may want to try another addon.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
last character keeps getting ignored, which is annoying. I don't always remember to add a space after my query. But overall still can't live without this addon!This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
2 annoying bugs Rated 4 out of 5 stars
1. Last typed character doubling on Tab press. Ex.: "g cupc" + Tab = "g cupccake".
2. A mouseclick on any of the dropdown results behaves like an Enter press without selecting a particular result. Ex.: "g cupc" + click on any of the results = search for "cupc". This bug was cured for me with reinstalling the addon.
The first bug isn't fixed for me.
abandonned by developers Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Has lots of VERY ANNOYING bugs that are ignored by developers.
Developers however blame mozilla (aka crapzilla) and they are partially right.
Muy recomendable, esencial para todos. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Uno de los mejores complementos de Firefox para la productividad, muy útil para realizar más rápido las búsquedas.
