NO longer works at all using FF 16.0.2 on Mac OS 10.6.8. Nothing happens!!Tried trick by other user to also load "enhanced Findbar" add-on...helped turn on XUL/Migemo, so it seemed to work BUT the Highlight All and the Scrollbar markings do not work at all. Tried on fresh new profile but not go.
Going to try "FindBar Tweak" or "Scrollbar Search Highlighter" addons which can do the same as above/
Somewhat slow response Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Agreed with last reviewer...this does too much in one add-on. I find it can run very slow (on an iMac 24" 2.8GHz w 4GB, so this CPU is no slouch).
I would at least split the function to highlight and show like Safari as a separate add-on from the Language search facilities.
I find that after a while, the Safari-like features get a little confused and the Find field does not respond to the keyboard well. Hiding the Find field arbitrarily shows/does not show the search result locations. Type to start find sometimes no longer responds.
Otherwise, this is the only add-on I have found to provide these functions.
Combine this with the Find In Tabs add-on and this is a killer combination.
Because new useful APIs are landed, most of performance problems around the find toolbar will be gone on Firefox 4.0. If possible, try Firefox 4 beta with XUL/Migemo 0.13.3.
