minor bug... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The "Empty searchbar when a query is submitted" feature no longer works in latest 21.0a1 nightlies (even tried the 2.0.15 version from SourceForge).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed.1-signed).
Thanks for letting me know. I opened a bug report for this issue https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/33/ and I will get to it as soon as possible (I am a little busy right now).

The ability to auto-remove text from the search bar only is worth it, while the screen real estate it saves is really useful. Suggestions: 1) An optional "X" overlay to empty the contents of the search bar (if one has not opted for the automatic clearing) 2) Right-click on the search bar to go to the options. 3) Make the searchbar resizable by drag-and-drop (e.g., the minimum if the option is set to make it enlarge with typing, or as the fixed size if one has opted for the fixed option)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed.1-signed).
Thank you for the suggestions and the donation is highly appreciated.
For 1 I believe it is out of the scope of this addon and is best handled by a separate addon. If you have a reason why it should be in this addon feel free to open an enhancement request.
I have created tickets on our issue tracker for 2 and 3. I am not sure about 2 and I would have to look how to implement it but I really like 3 and will implement that when I get a moment.

Search Suggestions Bug Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It was a great addon...
But now search suggestions popup fixes above search icon, not above search engine icon, so it jumps to the right over Firefox window, that is very unuseful...
I'm sorry to hear you are having problems but I can't quite understand your issue. If you open a bug report at https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/ you can attach a screen-shot and that might make it clearer. I hope we can resolve this issue.

I am having trouble with the combination of SearchLoad Options and Searchbar Autosizer. When a search is completed, I have the settings revert to the default search engine and clear the searchbar after 15 seconds. The searchbar clears and reverts to the default engine, but it does not shrink back to its minimum size. This is even with all other addons disabled. Help please.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed.1-signed).
Thanks for letting be know. This looks really easy to fix, I will just have to contact the SearchLoad Options developers.
I have opened a bug in our tracker to keep track of this issue: https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/27/

2.0.15 is perfect, now, for both ordinary computers AND netbooks.
I added some missing strings to the german local files.
If you would like to have these files, please tell me,
how to send them to you.

Fehlermeldung bei Version 2.0.13
XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: Nicht definierte Entität
Zeile Nr. 5, Spalte 1:<dialog
I am sorry for the error, we had a hiccup in our release process which blanked several translations. This went unnoticed and causes the error described. A new version has been uploaded and is awaiting mozilla's approval. You can roll back to an earlier version or download the new version from https://sourceforge.net/projects/autosizer/files/Packages/
2.0.12 not working on Mac OS X Rated 3 out of 5 stars
version 2.0.12 breaks the compatibliity with Mac OS X, please fix it ! . thank you very much in advance.....This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed.1-signed).
I don't have a OS X machine to test it on but if you can submit a bug report we can try to figure it out.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
nice one, thanks. :)
but in 2.09 the localization is broken. now it is all in english.
Yes and no. What it is is that the strings were changed around and I don't speak any other languages. The addon will need to be retranslated in these areas. There are a small portion of translations that can be saved and I am currently working on those. The reason the English is there is because you get an XUL error if a translation is not available so the english ones are put there as a fallback and a reminder to translate.
If you could help translate that would be awesome, see https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/wiki/GetInvolved/ and contact us via the mailing list for help (https://groups.google.com/d/forum/searchbar-autosizer) Please don't be afraid to ask //stupid// questions.
**Edit:** I have finished moving the strings that I could. There are still some parts that need to be l10nized though.

Does everything promised except for one thing... if you use the Assistant, it will not keep the setting "Enlarge searchbar on first strike". It will work just after you first set it, but after restarting Firefox, it reverts back to "Size incrementally, to each letter". Is there a way I can make it keep the enlarge on first strike option permanently? It used to work in earlier versions prior to 2.0. Also, this option cannot be selected without using the Assistant, to the best of my knowledge.
UPDATE: Yes Mr. Cox, it does seem to be fixed in v2.0.8 (even after restarting Firefox), as long as the minimum searchbar width isn't set at -1. Thank you.
Yes, I should have this fixed soon. I have created a bug report for you. https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/19/
an option... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
"shrink to smaller than the search engines title" should have an option...
Re: Mean it can like v2.0.5 or v2.0.6.
Re: YES v2.0.7 minwidth(int) Values -1: The searchbar will fit the search engine title.
I don't quite get what you mean. If you set the minimum size to smaller than the size of the search engine title it will become that small. Please note that there is a minimum that firefox will allow us to make the searchbar (approximately 10-15px).
Feel free to open a bug report or feature request so that we can discuss this further. https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/
FULLY customizable once again! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It used to be that you could customize it to be very small and expand as you started typing. It was beautiful. Not anymore???? There's no need to see the name of the search engine and don't like the shrink to button feature (which you have to click on before starting to type your query) -- like seeing the search engine icon (and little else). So, if you like to customize, you may not care for the new version.
WOW! LOVE IT! Works beautifully -- Like the first time I fell in love with Searchbar Autosizer. Perfect for saving space, yet still have the "eye candy" of the search engine icon and expands as you type your search query. Thank you for the update/fixes!! Great work!
This was fixed in version 2.0.6. See the bug report for more information http://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/13/. I have just recently uploaded this version and it will update once approved my AMO staff. You can also grab it at our sourceforge page http://sourceforge.net/projects/autosizer/files/.
Empty searchbar doesn't shrink to 1 pixel Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The searchbar no longer shrinks to 1 pixel when it is empty. The empty searchbar now expands to the width of the search engine name, which I have no need to see. This is new behavior starting with version 2.0.0.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed.1-signed).
This is intended behavior. Feel free to submit a bug report at http://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/ so that we can discuss it further.
What you might be interested is the shrink to button feature, a way to use minimum space while keeping the seachbar one click or keystroke away.
Location of the suggestions Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've noticed something strange. When I type into the searchbar, which is on the right side of the URL bar, the suggestion showed up under URL bar instead of searchbar. I am using everything latest. How do I troubleshoot? ThanksThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
This is a known issue on windows. I have submitted a bug for Firefox and am waiting to see what Mozilla is going to say.
I also hope so that the short cut of Web Search may operate again. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
" Command + K " was able to be used till version v1.5.7.
However, it is not possible to use it by a present version.
Therefore, I return to v1.5.7 now and am using it.

Still buggy.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The latest version 2.0.3 is still buggy.
Clicking the button "Assistant", the options panel goes off but the
assistant does not appears.
In error console i get the following error entry:
Timestamp: 28/6/2012 2:00:05 AM
Error: asw is not defined
Source File: chrome://autosizer/content/wizard.xul
Extension's description does not shown in localized instances.
This is due to the lack of file \defaults\preferences\prefs.js and
its corresponding entry which points to extension's description.
However, i suggest to developers to put extension's description
in install.rdf, since the localized method currently used applies
to very old Gecko versions (prior to FFx 3).
Today i noticed another problem:
I have enabled the option "Shrink searchbar to Button if empty".
When i click the button, the search field appears, but clicking
on the icon to show the list to pick another searche engine, the
searce field shrinks to buton again. This is very annoying..
To overcome this behavior, after clicking the button, i have to
type first something in the field to not be empty. Only this way
i can click then on the icon to show the list of search engines.
Thank you for respond Kevin.
I hope and i wish you fix all these issues, because this extension is
really useful, especially in cases of netbooks-laptops that most
people used to use today.
So, Good Luck..
Thank you, I have created bug reports for these issues:
latest patch broke a few things for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Love the add-on, it's been working perfectly - until the latest update, now the search bar doesn't hide anymore when leaving it empty without searching for anything, the icon on the bar is kind of wrong (it seems to be the wrong type of button or something) and its tooltip says "&autosizer.button.tooltip;". Additionally, searching overrides the currently active tab instead of creating a new one like before.
Re-installing the current version doesn't help, but reverting to the previous version solves any issues.
The option dialogue still works either way.
You are right, version 2.0.0 didn't shrink to button when you emptied the search-bar, only on submitting a search. This is fixed in version 2.0.1 which should be out soon.
Problem with Customization Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Firefox 12, no assistant, no way to customize. Can someone please just let me know if I'm missing something, or does this not work with Firefox 12? I would like to use this extension; it was just what I was looking for. I cannot figure out how to choose the modes (tried both 1.5.7 and 2.0 in Firefox 12).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed.1-signed).
I'm sorry but I can't reproduce your issue. If you could file a bug report at http://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/ we could try to figure it out.
