Smart Address Bar

Use Google Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The search function works great and feels a lot like the Google Chrome functionality that I want (but in Firefox), HOWEVER, I don't like being directed to some third party no name search engine for the results. Add the option to customize the search engine it uses for results, or at the very least, make Google the default, otherwise this add-on is going to continue to bomb. I guarantee you that's why it is not doing better than it is. People feel uneasy about using unknown search engines...makes them feel like there's some kind of phishing/malware thing going on (regardless of if it is or not). Change it and I'll definitely be using this over InstantFox, as I don't like typing in a "g" before my searches.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0.1-signed.1-signed). 

Fingerfox (SE)

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't know if this is just because I'm using Digital Persona or what, but it's just not doing what I need it to and it's pretty laggy. If I set it to automatically pop up, then it's pretty obtrusive when visiting sites that I don't want to log into that have a login section, as it pops up over my navigation bar every time. If I turn it off, then manually activating it usually results in me sitting for 10-15 seconds waiting on it, which, by that time, I could have already typed in my login information manually 3 times. I really think one thing could fix all this: make it to where there is a small version of the login screen that fingerfox pops up and allow the user to place it on the screen where they want. Currently, it pops up over the navigation buttons at the top left, and that just results in me getting frustrated when trying to get around the web quicker, as I have to close it out/minimize it like every 1 or 2 minutes. You can move it, but the next site you log into puts it right back in the default position. By making a smaller pop-up box and allowing users to move it and leave it where they want it to always be, the auto pop-up feature wouldn't be obtrusive. Just a suggestion that I think would garner you many more 4 and 5 star reviews. Unfortunately, for now, I can't do any better than a 3 (probably more like a 2, but I'll give you the benefit of a doubt that you might implement a change like this). Appreciate your effort to provide a fingerprint reader for firefox 4 though!
