Version 3.25 48.1 KiB Works with Firefox 39.0 - 56.*

SmartSearch 3.25 fixes the problem with Firefox 39. It contains no other changes.

Version 3.23.1-signed 47.7 KiB Works with Firefox 31.0 - 35.*

SmartSearch 3.23 works with Firefox 31. It contains no other changes, so users of previous Firefox versions need not update.

Version 3.22.1-signed 47.7 KiB Works with Firefox 25.0 - 30.*

SmartSearch 3.22 fixes the slowness reported under Firefox 26.

Version 3.21.1-signed 47.5 KiB Works with Firefox 25.0 - 26.*

Version 3.20.1-signed 47.0 KiB Works with Firefox 4.0 - 24.*

SmartSearch 3.20 restores the ability to search in a tab without switching to it immediately, which was silently broken by the Firefox 11 upgrade. Thanks to all who reported the problem. I apologize for taking so long to track it down.

Version 3.19.1-signed 58.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 13.*

- Let users choose whether to open new‐tab searches in the foreground or the background
- Add Polish and Chinese (Simplified) translations

Version 3.18.1-signed 50.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 6.*

Version 3.18 contains all the features of 3.17 with none of its locale bugs:

- Display searches in the order they appear in the bookmarks instead of sorted. To restore the old behavior, visit the Add‐on Preferences. (Thanks, Yves Goergen, for the implementation, plus the German translation of the new menu items.)
- Finally integrate the work of several translators. I have been negligent in doing so. The current included translations are:
* Deutsche
* Español (ES)
* Français (FR)
* Nederlandse [new in 3.18]
* Português (BR)
* Svenska (Sverige)
* Turkce (TR)
* Українська (uk)
* 中文 (zh-TW)

Version 3.16.1-signed 33.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 4.0.*

Version 3.15 33.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.6a1pre - 3.6.*

Like SmartSearch 3.14, SmartSearch 3.15 is compatible with Firefox 3.6.

Version 3.13 26.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 3.5.*

- Allow the user to flag a search as "Do not show results" for use with web sites that will dial a phone number, etc. (thanks to James Bradshaw).
- Look for new bookmarks every time the user opens the SmartSearch menu. This used to work, but a change in Firefox broke it.
- Fix "search all in tabs" option when there are quicksearches in both the bookmarks toolbar and the bookmarks menu.
- Avoid single‐item "bookmark items"–level folder when there are quicksearches in both the bookmarks toolbar and the bookmarks menu.

Version 3.12 24.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 3.0.*

SmartSearch 3.12 fixes the broken "Display all quicksearches in a long list" behavior of SmartSearch 3.11.

Version 3.11 24.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 3.0.*

SmartSearch 3.11 correctly finds quicksearches in your bookmarks toolbar or under Unfiled Bookmarks.

Version 3.10 24.0 KiB Works with Firefox 3.0b3 - 3.0.*

SmartSearch 3.10 is compatible with Firefox 3 and 3.0.1, as well as the earlier versions Beta 3, 4, and 5 and RC1 and RC2.

Version 3.7 26.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.5 - 2.0.0.*

Ukrainian translation (thanks to Timothy Babych); search for text from clipboard if nothing else is available (thanks, Jared Abrams); handle %S as well as %s

Version 3.6 23.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.5b1 - 2.0.0.*

add a hotkey for the SmartSearch menu; obey the browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick option (available in about:config) for middle-clicks on searches (thanks, chris); truncate search text in the menu item to avoid making the context menu very wide (thanks, shimmon)

Version 3.5 22.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.5 - 2.0.0.*

SmartSearch 3.5 fixes two minor bugs and uses the updated extension-preferences system. The two bugs are:
* "No quicksearches installed" menu item did not work properly.
* When the user right-clicked on names/acronyms with numbers in them, SmartSearch believed that the number was not part of the word to search for.

Version 3.4 24.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*

SmartSearch 3.4 includes internationalized support for searching for the word under the cursor. For example, with the new version, you can right-click on "España" and search for it without having to highlight the word, just as previous versions of SmartSearch allowed you to do for unaccented English words. Also, you may now middle-click on a menu to search using all the quicksearches in that menu at once. (This functionality was already available through the Search All in Tabs option, but middle-clicking may be a more natural method for some people.)

Version 3.3 22.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.*

SmartSearch 3.3 is Firefox 2.0 compatible.

Version 3.2 22.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

fixes the bug that causes SmartSearch 3.1 under Firefox 1.5.0.7 to open two tabs for each search

Version 3.1 22.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Version 3.0 21.0 KiB Works with Firefox 0.9 - 1.5.0.*

Submenus -- SmartSearch can now display your quicksearches in submenus, based on their organization in your bookmarks. As a result, you can now run multiple searches at once by choosing "Search All in Tabs."

(You may turn submenus off in the SmartSearch extension settings if you wish.)

Version 2.8 17.0 KiB Works with Firefox 0.9 - 1.5.0.*

Improvements for SmartSearch 2.8:
* Shrink any large bookmark icons to the proper size (thanks, Timothy Babych)
* Proper internationalization, including German localization (thanks, Bang)
* Set about:config defaults explicitly

Version 2.7 9.0 KiB Works with Firefox 0.9 - 1.5.0.*
