- by circcc, a year agoRated 5 out of 5In FF83 beta8, when I select search.json.mozlz4 file in "Export all search engines to a json file" menu, "The selected search.json.mozlz4 file is not valid" error message is displayed. mozlz4-edit extension don't have this problem, it works well, so it is not my search.json.mozlz4 problem.
Edit: bug fixed. thanksYou are very welcome, and thanks for the heads-up! If you wish, you can also open issues directly in the github page: https://github.com/soufianesakhi/firefox-search-engines-helper/issues so that I respond to it more quickly :)
- by Nikita, a year agoRated 5 out of 5Doesn't work anymore in Firefox 82.0.2
When adding a search engine, a dialog box shows up with following error:
Firefox could not install the search engine from: https:// file.io / ZUvgReF1ioWH
File.io file is an xml file with HTML for the search engine.
EDIT: Developer already fixed this issue. I was worried this extension was dead as well. Thanks. :)

As if it can set the keyword when adding search engines, it will be greater!Sadly the keyword can't be specified when adding search engines because it's not supported by the OpenSearch description format. It's more a user-defined browser configuration. You can however export/import search engines with their keywords offline starting from v3.1.0.
- by hipsterlynx, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I was just looking at the new API to figure out how to rewrite my old add-on for Firefox Quantum, and came across yours. Uploading and then downloading the engine data doesn't look like the most elegant solution, but if this is really the only thing you can do now, what you gonna do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'd consider checking whether the downloaded file is the same as the one you uploaded though, just to be sure that you are getting back the same thing and the file host is possibly not trying to do anything funny.
