Great concept, but wish it was more flexible.
I'd prefer the the tabs on the left, and URL on the right, as I'm more often looking at the tabs than the URL.
The deal-breaker right now is the search-button going to the google-default; I regularly search directly on wikipedia, amazon, ebay, and custom-search providers [and expect them to open in a new-tab, as per my configs]. While I love the condensed look of Prospector, the loss of specific-search-in-new-tab was a big disappointment.
it would be even better if one could get rid of the search button next... we use the address bar for searching.
This is a very useful addon for extracting screen space. I use it without any major hitches on Windows. But I face a problem while using it on Linux machines. On Linux machines, the Fx/Nightly button shifts to the right of the combined url bar. Is there a way to fix/get around this?
Keep the good work!
It's mysteriously simple but there some tips i would give to you to make this effect. Some other addons installed might damage this addon or probably changing modifications in about:config. Hoping for this addon to be protected from other addon's who's scripts might change its variable. But when i restart the settings of all addon it work fine.
This is a good add-on. Here are some changes that I'd like to see:
- In Chrome you can search with an engine that's not your default by typing "google foo" or "bing foo". That'd be helpful here.
- With the search button and selecting text and right clicking to search, both default to Google even though Bing is my default. The latter of these in particular is a bit jarring.
- It'd be nice to have an option to keep the new tab button. When there's empty space I can double-click that for a new tab and I can usually Ctrl-T for a new tab, but that's not always the case and it's just nice to have that option. Same deal with Panorama.
I think that's it. This is a really neat solution; these changes would make it even better!
Keep it around! Make it default. Better than customizing it ,myself. Using australis redesigned theme works beautifully combined with personas.
Prevents use of multiple search engines.
One of my favourite addons. Just need to get rid of that little spy glass for the search. or at least give the option to remove if we use a omnibar.
Location bar should be on the right side of the tabs instead of the left.
Really nice, but one point. We won't see search icon on the bar. Plaese let me delete it.
Running Ubuntu 11.10 and Firefox 8.0 and it looks fantastic. The new design saves a lot of space without losing any functionality. Though I would have chosen Google anyway, I think there should be an option to choose a different automatic search engine. Other than that, nearly perfect.
Very good. With all the addons moved to the side-bar this addon helps save a lot of screen space.
Needs to change the full screen mode to hide the one line like how it is done in normal firefox full screen mode. Besides that this is great.
Here's a bug. Open a *new* tab. Press ctrl+l (or cmd+l for Mac) to enter the url field. Type 'ha'. Watch the 'ha' become replaced by 'wa'.
One workaround is to make sure every search engine has a non-empty keyword, even the default one. Then use that first, and follow up with the 'ha...' string so that it doesn't convert it to 'wa...' Of course the keyword can't start with 'ha'!
If anyone is having a problem with "icons" missing, please transfer them to the bottom "add-ons" bar =)
This is a great exercise in minimalism. The back and forward buttons only display when you need them- the address bar expands when you need room to write. There are only two criticisms I'd give, and they both come down to how much horizontal space you have.
The address bar shoving the tabs over can be jarring when you open a new tab and want to switch back to an old one (the predictability of this is still somewhat upsetting to me- perhaps if the URL being typed is longer than the smaller space, then the address field?).
Also, if you have a lot of tabs, you have no choice but to use the titlebar to move the window if you're on OS X or Windows.
That said, those problems are hard to avoid in any design, and I think this is a great layout for people who aren't crazy about toolbars and extra widgets to distract them from their content. I would love to have this as the default in Firefox 9, but until then, it's my favorite addon.
Good one for laptops and other small screens, but needs a better solution if u have more than 1 row of tabs, cause then lots of space under the adress and search bar is just thrown away.
And thats really bad for an addon which wants to save space ;)
Nice space saver, and functions great for me, aside from a few aesthetic rough edges (because still experimental).
Great add-on! But i want to know, how can i disable auto resize address field?
Sometimes when I launch Firefox 7, the "Prospector - OneLiner" add-on is disabled. I have to open "customize" drag the "location" and "back/forward" buttons to the "Navigation Toolbar" then go to the "Add-ons Manager" and enable the "Prospector - OneLiner" add-on. No where does it say the the "Prospector - OneLiner" add-on is incompatible with Firefox 7. I like the add-on when it works, but it is a pain to have to do this. There is no pattern as to when it decides to "not work". So I go thru this exercise to be able to use it. When it is working correctly it is great. Is anyone else having this problem, if so what am I doing wrong or is this a bug?
pair this with https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/smallringfx-darkorange/?src=collection&collection_id=f37f1f7e-6d82-4420-b300-1f69df47e59a presto instant awesome
It's much better than LessChrome HD, I've been waiting for such addon !
Muy buen complemento, recomiendo reiniciar la Interfaz a por defecto antes de aplicar el complemento..
Lo único malo que vi hasta ahora que no es compatible con múltiples barra de pestañas (No múltiple tab bars.. u_u )..
In general, I find that the toolbars at the top take too much space. I was excited about LessChrome but it did not work for me since the movement of the toolbar obstructed the reading space. OneLiner is much, much better. I do like the feature that the awesome bar changes its size when you access it, because sometimes I want to see the whole address to make sure that I am not on an illicit webpage. However, I can understand that some users find this distracting and would like have an option to switch this feature off.
The only improvement I could think of would probably quite difficult: At lest on the mac, the first line of the top toolbar section contains the 3 buttons (close, hide, increase window) and the title of the web page. The latter takes most of the space and is redundant as the title is also shown on the tabs (full name if you hover over them). So I would propose to drop the redundant title and to merge this line with the OneLiner toolbar. Of course, this should be an option as it would not be compatible with the UI-recommendations of the OS vendor.
In reply to other reviewers:
goso321: Full screen works perfectly with my OS (OSX 10.7). (Shortcut: shift-command-F)
Skittle LA: Customization works for me, though it is not very intuitive: I see the standard toolbars but not the OneLine toolbar. In order to add an icon to the OneLine toolbar you simply add it to the tabs toolbar.
Thanks for this great piece of work!
