Is a Great plugin but in last Firefox Version (53.0.2) not works
If I type a sentence to search for in the omnibar, and click enter, nothing happenes! I have to click on the arrow to the right. Yet, if I type a keyword like "apple" into the omnibar and click enter, it searches for it. I wish this could be fixed, and also with it was possible for omni bar to use google's im feeling lucky search.
Omnibar Lite is here! But read my review before writing your own review and giving it low stars just because you didn't customize Firefox, hid the search box and enable the search engine icon.
Works great in Firefox 45 ESR. I can't live without the ability to quickly switch engines in my url bar. I really don't want an extra search bar taking up toolbar space!! Why would Firefox force that on us??? No upgrading for me.
I LOVE the ability to add a custom search engine for some sites.
It would be very nice to return an ability to change current search engine using an icon in the location bar. It seems that there is no alternatives for this feature.
UPD: I'm using Omnibar Lite now: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/omnibar-lite/
Its most useful feature was the ability to click the icon in the location bar and change search engines before searching. Can't even be be maintained to keep it useful.
And this is what is to become of Firefox.
In lastest versions of ff the searche work directly in the adressebar... if not -> about:config -> keyword.enabled = true !
Great for older Firefox versions. For those looking to replace it, I suggest Beyond Australis. On the options for that add-on, you can activate the Awesome Bar and check "show search engines in the location bar." It will give a similar feel to Omnibar. If you do not want the bar to auto-hide, under the slim chrome panel on the left, you can also uncheck "also hide navigation bar".
Doesn't work anymore with Firefox 47.00
Does not work in Firefox 47.
Workaround: Disable and Enable in preference.
Great add-on so far, but with the new Firefox 47.0 it does not work... I will but 5 stars when it is fixed! Is the source code released somewhere? Maybe I can give a hand debugging.
Source code is available at https://github.com/ajitk/omnibar. Thanks!
Хот и были проблемы с дополнением на последних версиях FF, но оно работало! А теперь? Теперь с приходом FF47, полная лажа с этим аддоном!
Жаль. Отличное было расширение. Я в печали(
p.s. может ли кто посоветовать аналогичное дополнение для объединения строки адреса и поиска?
Doesn't work anymore starting from Firefox 47.0
Obsolete and abandoned by developer.
The functionality of the addon has been integrated in the latest Firefox.
This addon is great and its features need to be natively implemented in Firefox. The bug mentioned in the title is a major problem, however.
opening the "Manage Search Engines" menu causes firefox to lock up and become unresponsive
This is an excellent addon but it seems to be broken of late (previously rated at 4). Press manage seach engine freezes firefox in Linux. Try to go to prefs and managing the searches from there yield no better results.
I've gotten around the bug by unhide mozilla native search ui and managing the search engines from there. not ideal/
It would be my pleasure to review my rating should this bug be fixed.
In FireFox 43.0.2 in simple url bar mode, enter not work on first item in drop-down list and when caret at the end of URL. In previous version I use (most likely 42.0) enter key worked fine. See image: https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/6425/8555553.0/0_129226_c59e3411_orig.png
Solution from https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/oldbar/
Fix for this:
browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete = false
Absolutely great add-on. Some time ago I was thinking about moving to Opera but it seems it's impossible to get Awesome Bar in Chromium (there is Fauxbar add-on which is not continued so it's already not working great and will be dead in the future). As I'm really used to this feature in Firefox, I started looking for a way to combine address bar and search bar and I'm happy I found this add-on.
It has everything I need and even more. I really like being able to disable searching in internet to look in bookmarks and history first and then adding search operator and change standard Awesome Bar into search bar.
Must-have add-on for me.
PS: I don't have problems with "Manage Search Engines" - maybe it was a bug in FF itself?
This is the bomb, especially once you customize your search engine shortcut keys because the vanilla firefox requires you to use the shortcut keys in the address bar, which defeats the purpose of the search bar. Anyway, @Morcas, I am experiencing the same glitch you are describing and I believe it may be because Firefox has moved where the search settings are. Currently, you can manually go to the settings menu > Options > Search and get what you normally would see.
Because of the awful changes Mozilla made to the search engine management, going forward, Omnibar is broken. When selecting Manage Search Engines the whole browser freezes and has to be forceably terminated.
I hope we'll see a fix...
Thanks for reporting the problem. Will check it out.
Must have for me, with New tab homepage, one of the first I install on fresh Firefox. I wish to be able to customize this bar. I want to move the "refresh page" arrow in a more convenient place.
It looks nice and all, but there's one BIG problem and that's pressing enter. I can't press enter to reload a page, I can't type in a web address and press enter to go to that page, and I can't press enter to do anything. So I'll disable it and maybe I'll try again in the not near future.
