Where is my Thunderbird Google Search? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Finally! Noticed today Thunderbird did not list Google in Mozilla Search Engine (Bing and Yahoo AOL - who still uses AOL search engines?) then to go through the headache of researching and after editing Mozilla/ Firefox/Profile/ random#s and when that didn't work then found this add-on only for to it not to self install and had to do it manually...Seriously? But thank you as what would I do without Google and Thunderbird?

Still working on 52.6.0 on Linux Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just install and works. Yay!
Dirty tactics though. If Bing wasn't such a pile of junk we would use it. Microsoft is trying to own the internet as well as all the operating systems, by any means possible. Ugly stuff.

Installed manually after downloading. Had to Google (not Bing) how to do that but it's easy. Thank you.

Why there is no Google Search in Thunderbird... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

and why it has to be installed manually :

Thunderbird got MONEY from Microsoft to make Bing (the sound that your head will do against the wall when you use it) the default search engine, but apparently the deal must also have involved preventing Google to be used... Yuck.

The module works perfectly with Thunderbird 52.4.0 despite the mention "this module is incompatible with your version of thunderbird"...

Works fine v.52.3.0 (Windows 7) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've looked for a solution to this problem before and only found convoluted config solutions -- no mention of this extension until today when I've finally had enough. Registered just to submit this review and ask WHY this is even NECESSARY?!?!

52.2.1 (64-bit), Linux Mint. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works with said version. Mozilla should auto provide this. Get rid of Bing please.

Nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works. I don't know why Mozilla don't include Google search. In fact, I believe previous versions did include it, because on my older machine with an old installation of Thunderbird I can see Google in the drop-down list. One more nice thing, after installing this extension it's ok to remove it, the Google entry remains in the list. Nice!

Arbeitet sauber und zuverlässig Mann kennt es halt nicht anders.
Ein großes DANKE an den Entwickler. Ohne Euch würde das Netz nur halb soviel Spaß machen.

Thank you but WHY? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am grateful to the author for writing a plug-in to fill a glaring omission on mozilla's part. However, the real question is why this was necessary? It smacks of political infighting between mozilla and google. Why?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works. Save, then go to add-ons, click the sprocket and install.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This would be a better description, if:

In Mozilla Thunderbird, open Add-ons from the Tools menu.

I had a "Tools" menu. I probably do, but after chasing through a mess of menus and not finding it, I get tired and cranky. I know you are trying to be pure in spirit and true to the values of open source and all, but I just want to get my job done and this purity c**p gets in the way and instructions that don't work make it all the worse.

Works after tweaking and restart Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After installing the add on it was not showing Google as option to search. I resorted to opening the Config Editor and replaced Bing entries with Google as primary search engine before everything worked correctly.

All in all - a great tool to remove / replace Bing with Google.


Does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After downloading "Google Search for Thunderbird" I received an error message that Google Search does not work with Firefox 32.0.3!!!
So now what?

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine for me. Bye Bye Bing.
