I run Firefox 28.
I changed the Hotkey setting - unchecked it so that Alt+m does not activate this add-on.
I changed the Key setting from 'm' to 'n'.
But after restarting Firefox, Alt+m still runs this add-on.
But Alt+m MUST be the Menu shortcut, you cannot hijack it for your add-on.
Doesn't work for me with Firefox 28.
"Conform Searchbox" add-on does what this add-on is supposed to do.
Thank you masahal.
Many times I use the Google web page to do searches and then want to search for a particular word in my search string. When this happens I regret not entering the search string in the Searchbox.
But this add-on fixes that problem - the search terms go into the Searchbox after I do the search from the Google web site.
Also, this add-on is working with the SearchWP add-on - so all my search terms in the Google page become Buttons in the Searchbox and I can click on a button to search for a particular word.
When the AIO Sidebar is displaying Add-Ons, you can click on an Add-On and then click on its "More" link to read more information about it.
After reading the "More" section, you can click on the "Back" icon, but AIO Sidebar always goes back to the very top of the list of Add-Ons.
This is OK if you have only 20 or so Add-Ons installed, but I have 94. So it is unhelpful having to keep scrolling down the list of Add-Ons to get back to the one I was just looking at.
I would like the Back button to remember which Add-On I was previously displaying.
I am writing this here because if I try to go to your support forum I get a "404 Not Found" error.
I use "Malware Bytes' Anti-Malware".
The executable file is:
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
After a download, mbam.exe runs, but it looks as though it is not being passed the file name.
So mbam.exe does not scan the file, it just waits for me to select the type of scan - which I don't want to do.
If I open a DOS window and run:
"C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe " <filename>
- the file is correctly scanned.
The previous version of "Download Statusbar" ran mbam.exe with no problems, so I don't think it is a configuration problem on my part.
I'm running S3.Download Statusbar v. 1.7 on Firefox 27 on Windows XP.
Thank you Oleksandr!
The virus check is now working perfectly in version 1.9.
Your efforts are much appreciated.
All the best,
So many other search extensions don't quite do what I want - this one is just perfect.
Thank you, Mr. "Quicksaver". ;)
Deservedly "Mozilla’s Pick of the Month!"
I have 600+ passwords saved in my Password Safe (http://pwsafe.org/) and yet Firefox doesn't present me with username/password options on some sites.
This add-on fixed that problem by allowing me to add the necessary details to Firefox's password manager.
And if you want to watch the best ever tutorial on how to use an add-on, just click on "a video demonstrating this workaround" in the "About this Add-on" section above.
Yes, FF 26.0 breaks this extension, so I've reverted to 25.0.1 because this extension is far more important to me than whatever little tweaks Mozilla have done in their race to get to version 100.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.8).
I just read your reply to "frascati" and was happy to see that there are "Global Settings"!
I think you should give more prominence to this feature as it has made my Firefox experience so much better on my tiny Netbook screen!
I used "7zip" to extract files and "Notepad-Plus-Plus" to edit a file.
1. Use 7zip to extract everything from "searchwp-2.6.2-fx.xpi".
2. Leave the 7zip window open.
3. In extracted folder "chrome", use another instance of 7zip to extract everything from "searchwp.jar".
4. Leave this 7zip window open also.
5. In extracted folder "content", use Notepad++ (the text editor) to edit "searchbox.xml".
6. At about line 402, change this line:
var fastFind = window.getBrowser().fastFind;
var fastFind = gBrowser.selectedTab.linkedBrowser.fastFind;
7. Save the new "searchbox.xml".
8. In the 7zip window that is open for "searchwp.jar", click on folder "content" so that the original "searchbox.xml" is displayed in the list of folders and files.
9. In Windows Explorer, drag the new "searchbox.xml" onto this 7zip window. This will update "searchbox.xml" in "searchwp.jar".
10. Close this 7zip window.
11. In the 7zip window that is open for "searchwp-2.6.2-fx.xpi", click on folder "chrome" so that the original "searchwp.jar" is displayed.
12. In Windows Explorer, drag the new "searchwp.jar" onto this 7zip window. This will update "searchwp.jar" in "searchwp-2.6.2-fx.xpi".
13. Close this 7zip window.
14. Install the new, updated "searchwp-2.6.2-fx.xpi" in Firefox 25.
The only problem I have found is that the "minimum length" option doesn't work - all words of any length are searchable.
It's because of add-ons like this.
You get a really annoying problem with Firefox, for example it crashes, and when you restart it, every Youtube video then starts playing simultaneously with every other!
What a racket! How fast can you find every tab that has a Youtube video on it and turn the <expletive deleted> things off?
So then you think: "Well, someone else must've had this problem and come up with a fix". So you search the add-ons and "Yippeeeee! There's a fix for it".
Except, the add-n doesn't work for the latest version of Firefox!!
Why can't Firefox get stable, stay stable and just take a rest for a change? Every week there's a new version and half my extensions have to be updated. OK, slight exaggeration.
Hey, Mozilla! It's not a race to get to version 583, y'know. Nobody cares what number it is, and the bigger it is does NOT mean it's better. In fact, you just annoy people with all these updates.
I was quite happy when it was version 3.6. But instead of 3.7 it jumped to 4. Then 5,6,7,8,9...
<expletive deleted> will you slow up? Give the poor add-on writers a chance to catch up?
I have a feeling that if you - Mozilla - haven't got the basic core of Firefox sorted out by now, then you never will.
And remember this, Mozilla, Firefox was written for the add-ons. End of. If people don't use add-ons then why are they running Firefox. They may as well use Chrome.
End of rant.
PS. Dear Nikola Kovacs, if you can't find the time to update this add-on, can you please let someone else do it?
Thanks for the small icon option!
PS. Just for the record, I don't see any "Info notifications" or "Closing Warnings".
I haven't tried - and don't want - the "Keep Current Tab" or "Open Home Page" options, so can't comment on them.
Thanks, Michael. I missed this function for the last couple of days!
I don't know what the "Amp Your Firefox Contest" was all about, but I do know that Mr. Piro produces some of the best Firefox add-ons and should get an award.
This add-on - Tree Style Tab - makes sense in so many ways:
1. Don't use precious vertical space for your tabs - put them on the left side.
2. How many tabs can you put at the top? 5 or 6 before you can't read them? So put them on the left and have 20 or more, fully readable.
3. How can you tell which tabs were opened from another tab? Easy - the indentation tells you at a glance.
4. And many more features and options.
Such a good add-on. Thank you Mr. Piro.
Thank you, Piro. Another great add-on from you.
The name of the XPI file "Video DownloadHelper".
The name used in this web page is "Video DownloadHelper".
But the name of this add-on as listed by Tools/Add-ons is "Download Helper".
So why don't you spend just one minute changing the name in install.rdf to "Video_DownloadHelper"?
Alll you have to do is change this line:
JUST DO IT!
I have 90 add-ons installed and this is in my top 5, with All-in-One Sidebar, Multiple Tab Handler, Research Word, and Tab Mix Plus.
I have used it for over 6 years. Mr. Piro, I salute you.
I tried to register at "http://quickfoxnotes.sourceforge.net/forum" to report this bug, but got this error:
Could not open socket
Please notify the board administrator or webmaster: email@example.com
So consider yourself notified.
Meanwhile, the bug:
I use the All-In-One sidebar to view my add-ons. I click on the Options button as displayed in the sidebar for the Quickfox Notes add-on version 2.8.1.
When Quickfox Notes is the only tab open, and I click on the Options button, Firefox exits. It doesn't crash, there's no "Tell Mozilla about it" window. It just disappears.
When Quickfox Notes is not the only tab open, after I click on the Options button, the Quickfox Notes tab disappears and a smaller Quickfox Notes window opens with the "Tools" drop-down menu already visible. This is what is supposed to happen.
My Firefox is set up to not close when the last tab is closed. When I click the Option button, it looks as though the Quickfox Notes tab is closed and this causes Firefox to exit. It shouldn't.
This bug happens on both my desktop and my laptop - exactly the same problem in the same circumstances.
I hope you spend time perfecting this add-on as it looks really useful and saves time right clicking on selected text to choose which search engine to use.
However, it only works on a new profile for me. It does not work in my default profile which has 92 extensions installed.So it is clashing with one of the other 91 extensions.
If you want, I can list them all!
Possible enhancements required:
1. Make the size of the tabs configurable.
2. Make the position of the tabs configurable - top, bottom, left, right.
3. Make the number of tabs configurable.
4. Make the appearance of the tabs configurable, e.g. always present, pop up fully when text selected or pop up 50% when text selected.
Keep up the good work!
Thank you for clarifying where the data is stored.
I had searched previously for "MaskME" and found no data files in my profile. But, as you now report, the data is in a file called "idme_data-db.sqlite" which I have found and examined using the SQLite Manager add-on.
However, I found that this add-on interferes with the way Firefox already remembers log-in data for web sites. Before I installed this add-on, after I clicked on an empty log-in box, Firefox would suggest a name. After clicking on the name, Firefox would add automatically the password in the password box. This add-on appears to stop that happening.
So this add-on may be useful for people who always want to log in with fake IDs, but it's not for me and I have uninstalled it.
So thanks again for the information, but I have given this add-on a "neutral" rating.
