Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to like this add-on a lot but it stopped working some time ago. Has not been updated in a year and isn't compatible with latest Firefox.

I love this Add-on and I've been using it on multiple computers since it came out. Unfortunately, updating to Firefox 14 seems to have broken it (rather coincidentally since the version of this is 14). Removing the add-on, restarting the browser, and adding it again have no effect. :(

I find this add-on to be brilliant except for one critical flaw. Most of the time, on one particular computer I use, restarting firefox causes the address bar to stop working entirely. This means I have to disable the add-on and re-enable it to restore functionality.

Other than that, I love the fact this is a bootstrapping add-on, as it makes updating and installing and disabling, etc. completely painless. I also love being able to do searches for multiple services from the same bar with ease. It does also need the option to add search engines though.

If it weren't for the major issue I raised, this would be a 5/5 for me.

This is a very usefull add-on, but when type something to search on the internet, without selecting "search on the web", it uses the yahoo search engine. why is that, if the "search" category has GOOGLE as the default engine?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have add-on. It is similar to the "omnibar" in Google Chrome, but it has the potential to be even better.

However, it is missing customizations:
- Adding/Removing categories
- Adding sites to a categories
- Disabling the tooltip ("Press tab to search the web: …")
Also, the hyperlink color seems to be not adequate to the standard firefox theme.

Finally, I didn't find out how to "show" a category (after using the "hide this category").

It's a fantastic idea, but until the search engines can be customised, it's of extremely limited use. A for effort.

I miss the directly link like: I write 'facebook' and type enter and it loads instantly. Please improve it!

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon, is very useful and now I can stay wihout it.

Love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like the functionality, although i still use "tab <search quary>" most often. Having a single bar is an advantage imo.

Needs the option to NOT launch a new tab for the search results.

Some of my reason for using firefox: I want the search bar there.I wish I could rate this neutral as I don't have anything against it except that it is copying chrome, i havent used it so i dont know if it improves on chromes idea. So ill give it 4 stars, at least you guys are working hard and doing some awesome stuff! :)

OH so sorry Mardak I hadn't seen your reply to my comment (maybe AMO can have email notification somewhere)
I think the idea of combining of the search bar and url bar is google inspired. Although it's not too much of a deviation from removing the search bar. I think at the time I left that comment I was disheartened to see FF4 becoming chrome-like especailly with the resizeable textarea rather then the form autofill memory feature.

I like the idea of this addon, but had to turn it off due to several annoyances.
- If you click in the awesome bar somewhere after the url, it clears out the url. I wish there was an option to never clear the current url.
- It hides parts of the url by default. This means you can't directly select portions of the url. You must to click the url once to make the entire url visible, then you can select and manipulate the portion of the url you want.
- Lacks custom keywords and search engines.
I hope these behaviors become customizable in the future, I enjoy the tab switching and tab complete for search engines and would like to activate it again. Until then I am sticking with regular keyword bookmarks.

The idea of searching in Awesome Bar is good but this addon has a lot of problems:
1. I cannot manage the search engines, category and even the keyword of the search engines.
2. NO suggestions shown when I am typing the words in searching.
3. NO point to show the full website after i choose the search engine and the mouse leave awesome bar.
4. This is much more more difficult to copy the address of website that I am originally visiting.

This is really an awesome add-on! Will bring back many Chrome users (like me) to Firefox!

I really like this addon a lot. But it is useless to me if I cannot add my own search engines. Right now I use the 'add to searchbar' addon together with the 'scroll search engines' addon. Whenever I want to look for something I just type in the searchbar and scroll to the desired search engine. It's ver fast and very effective.

So my question is, can you add your own search engines? And if so, can you scroll through them, or use a similar technique?

Thanks!

Not a fan. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't like the AwesomeBar, and I am very glad it is an add-on and not standard. If it were to become standard, you would have to give me the option to turn it off.I don't use tabbed browsing, and any search opens the results in a tab. I have a massive screen and alt+tab is comfortable for me so that's what I stick to.I don't enjoy the partially hidden URL. I like to know exactly where I am without having to move the mouse to hover.I also like my search bar and URL bar to be separate entities. This is a really cool add-on for people who use tabbed browsing and like to simplify their interfaces, but I don't like to combine my stuff. It's just like having an mp3 player and phone. Sure, I could have two in one, but I like them separate quite a bit more. (I even turned on the menu bar again because I like having it all there opposed to hidden in the previous update).

EDIT: I would also like to point out that the Add-Ons button no longer works because of AwesomeBar. If anyone would like to know how to remove it, you may go to Tools > Options > General > Manage Add-ons...

Often, pressing Enter at the end of a URL, or clicking the "Go" button doesn't work. Especially if selecting from the AwesomeBar dropdown.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (13).
