Even better way to enable older add-ons with FF 5 can be found here: http://www.reecreate.com/blog/2011/06/22/howto-enable-incompatible-add-ons-in-firefox-5/
You will still be able to see which of your add-ons aren't 'officially' updated to FF 5, but this gives you the ability to enable them anyways and test for yourself (you can always disable and wait for updates if they do cause a problem). IMHO, this is how add-on compatibility should have been handled by Mozilla IN THE FIRST PLACE!
why is it always google?
I wrote this extension to use Google's Custom Search api because I was familiar with it. I was mostly unfamiliar with the competing products available at that time, namely Microsoft's Live Lab's search macros, and Yahoo's custom search product. I don't know if either of those products still exists. As far as I know, those products have never had the "on-the-fly" custom search engine generation capability of Google's Custom Search product.
Note: I was a developer on Google's Custom Search product, including the on-the-fly search engine creation features.
is it possible to add a toolbar icon instead of just the statusbar? Useful for people who disable the statusbar.
I just now tested against Firefox 4.0, and saw that the icon appears in the Add-ons toolbar. I also noticed that the Add-ons toolbar is not displayed by default. I need to figure out where the correct place is for the icon, which might just be the Add-ons toolbar.That said, ctrl-alt-s will still toggle the Search Everywhere search bar, no matter where the icon appears.
The new version of Search Everywhere, which works with Firefox 4.0, is currently under review and should be available soon.
Thank you Norman! It works fine. The 5 stars are for you ;-)
Hi johnspac -- I've officially updated the add-on. It is in the "sandbox", awaiting editor's review. I suspect you will get an auto-update from addons.mozilla.org once it is reviewed. Thanks for using Search Everywhere, and let me know if you have any requests or find bugs! You can post bugs & feature requests (or submit changelists...) at http://code.google.com/p/searcheverywhere/
I like this Add-on very much but unfortunately the original author didn't update this jewel for Firefox 3.5 so I decided to just edit the "install.rdf" file, and now it seems to work again:-)
I uploaded this version here:
Feel free to try this, but please on your own risk.
Hi NormanBates. Thanks for your help while I was slammed with other work! You can look at my reply to the fellow that thanked you via the review page for this add-on, but in short I have uploaded the new version 0.4.0 and you should get an auto-update once an editor at addons.mozilla.org approves my changes.
Again, thanks! And please feel free to add bugs, feature requests, or code via http://code.google.com/p/searcheverywhere/
Will it be updated for firefox 3.5?
The update for Firefox 3.5 is in progress. Personal events are slowing me down (all good events, thankfully), work events (yuck), and problems with working from code.google.com for the source (I'm having some weird xps installation problem, perhaps with file permissions and mercurial/hg. I hope to get back to it soon
This works very good!
After I am getting tired about going to google each time to search within a particular site, I find this valuable little addon.
Simple, clean, easy-to-use, user-friendly UI...
If this addon can be rated as 10 stars, I will definitely do it.
Excellent. (I am already using the newest version - 0.3.2 :D)
I love the SiteSearch. It works so much more reliably than bookmarklet solutions.
This is a great tool for when one wants to search a particular site regardless of whether that site has a search function available.
It also goes one step further. It searches other sites that the particular site links to, on the premise that the site is a reference/lead to additional information on a particular topic.
When searching from sites with topics ranging from sports, SEO, celebrities, pets... this extension helps focus the search so that the query matches the intent of the searcher.
For example, [matt] on searchengineland.com will show results for a different Matt than on eonline.com
When Paul told me about this firefox extension, I immediately installed it and started using it while browsing wikipedia pages and found it very useful to search pages linked form that wikipedia page. This is cool! Everyone should install this!
This little add-n harnesses the power of CSE's in an incredible way. Personally I don't have time to build a fancy CSE for all of my interests, so with this I just go to a bookmark with some good links, click the search bugger and happiness flows directly from the web to me. :)
