nURL suffix makes it super easy to get to different subdomains of my institutional website (or different subreddits) with a quick keyboard shortcut. (The default fixup behavior is clearly doing something with different shortcuts, and I don't understand why you can't change it up in about:config for anything other than Ctrl+Enter, which is the one I actually don't want to change). With FF Quantum, the lack of my usual shortcuts is driving me crazy, because I keep going to X.net or X.org. I would really love to see this updated to a web extension for FF57 if that is at all possible.
Thank you a lot for your extension that I have been happily using for a while without any problem.
Do you plan to update your extension to make it work with firefox 57?
Best regards, and thanks again for your time and effort
Hi, I've looked at it briefly, but it's not clear how much work will be involved in making this a web extension. I will investigate further but at this point I'd say it's 50/50 whether this extension will continue working past Firefox 57
When I enable nURL Suffix, URL Alias stops working (I'm using FF 51.0.1 and won't upgrade because Mozilla broke plugins). Can it be fixed? Thanks in advance!

"test test" didn't work
Please try the new version, 0.53. Thanks!
Now working perfectly. Not sure why it hadn't updated itself to the latest verion 0.52, I had to manually update.
Sorry to hear that. Are you running addon version 0.52? Which version of Firefox are you using?
am getting into Google search instead of opening the requested URL. What can I do, please ? (am on OSX 10.11.6)
Further: I am on nURL 0.52 - and FFox 52 beta 1 - it is still not working
Please make sure you have updated to the latest version of the addon (0.52). Thanks!
Further: what shortcut are you trying to use, and what have you set prefix and suffix to be?
What i do: I use the extension as hotkey-search. So - i enter a searchterm to the urlbar - hitting enter will give a google-seacht, hitting ctrl+enter a search in Wikipedia and so on...
This works by adding appropriate prefixes and suffixes. Example wiki Prefix: ...index.php?search=
This works like charme for single words - but wont work for adding more than one search-term.
Both used to work for the extension URL-suffix before FF50...
Works as designed, and works for macOS.
I'd like to say thank you to the developer for getting lots of us out of a pickle!
Being a Brit, I use ".co.uk" as a suffix for perhaps 70% of the websites I visit and with URL Suffix being broken by the move to Firefox 50, I'd downgraded back to version 49.xx because I'd surprised myself just how useful these tools for adding the suffixes are and how much they are missed when broken.
It's not a criticism which affects me (because I only ever really used ".com" or ".co.uk") but there were, in addition to ctrl-enter, shift-enter & alt-enter, loads of other key combinations which could have been programmed too. Perhaps the developer at nURL will look back at what was in URL suffix and add these for other people who were making use of them too moving forwards.
Once again though a big thank you to the developer for his time sorting this for us in 'Firefoxworld'.
The trailing slash cause I can not connect to some website. And it is added automatic if I leave suffix having blank value.
was using URL-Suffix until FF50 broke it, though even nURL didn't seem to work at first?
Seems ok now and good for .com and .co.uk etc
The basic functionality works, but subdomains are not supported:
Typing "mail.example" and pressing Ctrl + Enter won't append .com in the end.
The interesting thing is that more complex addresses are resolved correctly:
Typing "builtwith/startpage.com" and pressing Ctrl + Enter will successfully resolve to "builtwith.com/startpage.com"
Thanks for your review. It's unfortunately hard to handle subdomains - because of the large amount of new TLDs (eg .xyz, .guru, .coffee) it's almost impossible to tell which is a subdomain that should have .com appended to it, and which is a TLD that should not be modified.
Does what it is supposed to do perfectly. Thanks to the dev for the quick reaction when it stopped working after a FF update.
Thanks for letting me know. I have uploaded a fixed version which is currently in review. It should be rolled out to you shortly.
v0.4 working fine. Thanks for the update.
Hopefully this will be fixed, but no updates for a while so perhaps not ?
Thanks for your note. This bug is now fixed and the update is awaiting review. It should be to you shortly.
Needs some improvements, but it's a good start! Works great on FF 3.5.
When the URL is created there's automatically added a slash (/) to the end of the address.
In a special case this can be problematic:
I am using the extension Enter Select which is great but breaks typing a quicklink e.g. like ac for calling about:config. So I have set the Ctr+Shift fields blank which allows me to call the URL directly with that shortcut.
So I type ac and hit Ctrl-Shift-Enter but instead of about:config nURL converts that to about:config/ (note the slash at the end) which isn't valid.
Summarized: when leaving a shortcut blank, instead of calling what I typed I get what I typed plus a slash. Could the slash be removed?
Works fin with FF 3.5
I need prefixes and suffixes with "Enter"
at least an alternative to dotCOMplete that works on 3.5 (need to force the compatibility though). Nice work
Need an update for 3.5b99! =/
With three options is sufficient, at least for me. It works fine with Firefox 3.0.7
does exactly what its meant to do.
(and i had no installation problems btw)
Firefox reports that the checksum is not correct.
not compatible with Tab Mix Plus for me
