None of the keyboard shortcuts recommended for any system work with Ubuntu 17.04 on my current system, and there doesn't seem to be a way to start it otherwise. So, really no stars, as I can't even start it!
It's an extremely useful add-on! It helps automating things very easily, for example if you want to have a custom search command just put the cursor on a textbox and issue create-search-command SomeName, and boom! You have a new custom search command! I LOVE it and I'm glad it's alive again!
I think it is the best ever add-on for firefox. Unfortunately I cannot use it (firefox 41.0.2). The ctrl+space does nothing, the right-click menu is empty, the add-on option button freezes firefox. Starting with a brand new profile does the same. :-( Sorry, but I give 5 stars anyway. Waiting for the fix! Thank you guys for your great job!!!
When I first installed Ubiquity, I couldn't have been more excited about a program. I used the simple functions of the add-on effortlessly and I was excited to figure out what else I could do with it as future developments unfolded.
Fast forward to today and I am saddened that it is no longer supported for Firefox. I do hope that there are plans to bring it back. I still find myself hitting Ctrl+Space from time to time, just out of habit.
I followed others' instructions on installing it for the latest version of Firefox, and it worked just fine. There are a few bugs, but overall it works great! I really wish there was official support for this add-on again.
I used this add on on previous versions of Firefox and loved it!! Awesome add on that makes browsing faster, easier, and more fun. I especially love Wiki / Defining terms I come across while online and I want more background. I do not have to open a new tab or anything. CTL + SpaceBar and there is my info! @Tinsley thanks for the instructions on how to get it on the newest version!! Amazing!
I have been using this add-on for years now and it is the main reason why I pick Firefox over other browsers out there. I cannot browse without this add-on. It makes browsing more accessible and easier. I recommend it to everyone.
This may have been mentioned earlier, but to those that wish to have it to work with any FireFox version download the tip.xpi file from here: https://bitbucket.org/satyr/ubiquity/downloads and open it with Firefox. It will install it and it will work even if you update Firefox to newer versions.
I hate to see that people rate this add-on to oblivion just because they can't find a way on their own to make it work with newer versions of Firefox. Support from developers is important but this particular problem is no reason to rate this add-on in such manner.
I came across a working version of Ubiquity for FF12 here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mozilla-labs-ubiquity/versions/?page=1#version-0.6.2pre This site has links to the ubiquity xpi for various version of Firefox. For FF12 you'll want to try version-0.6.2pre. So far seem to work great!
Although is abandoned, for now. (I'm think in a moment If anyone do nothing I have to do something with this code) This is my favorite addon ever. Why? I'm developer and with this addon, I had shortcuts to do whatever I wanted. And I can do something with two shortcut and feel I'm fast and I feel like I'm in a rocket. Something like this :D
Ubuntu's proposed HUD concept has the base in Ubiquity. It is a great idea from Firefox but dont know what led it abandon such a great concept. However, I am glad to see it on Ubuntu in a new form that too for all the applications. No more hassles of menus.
