It was very useful for changing default engine, but it is broken now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It would be very nice to return an ability to change current search engine using an icon in the location bar. It seems that there is no alternatives for this feature.

Only Mozilla would "Feature" a broken addon Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Its most useful feature was the ability to click the icon in the location bar and change search engines before searching. Can't even be be maintained to keep it useful.
And this is what is to become of Firefox.

Obsolete Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great for older Firefox versions. For those looking to replace it, I suggest Beyond Australis. On the options for that add-on, you can activate the Awesome Bar and check "show search engines in the location bar." It will give a similar feel to Omnibar. If you do not want the bar to auto-hide, under the slim chrome panel on the left, you can also uncheck "also hide navigation bar".

Great addon but do not work on 47.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great add-on so far, but with the new Firefox 47.0 it does not work... I will but 5 stars when it is fixed! Is the source code released somewhere? Maybe I can give a hand debugging.

Source code is available at https://github.com/ajitk/omnibar. Thanks!

Печально, очень печально! ( Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Хот и были проблемы с дополнением на последних версиях FF, но оно работало! А теперь? Теперь с приходом FF47, полная лажа с этим аддоном!
Жаль. Отличное было расширение. Я в печали(
p.s. может ли кто посоветовать аналогичное дополнение для объединения строки адреса и поиска?

Addon is broken, but there's no need for it anymore Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The functionality of the addon has been integrated in the latest Firefox.

Great, but the "Manage Search Engines" bug desperately needs fixing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is great and its features need to be natively implemented in Firefox. The bug mentioned in the title is a major problem, however.

Great add-on normally, but a big bug Rated 2 out of 5 stars

opening the "Manage Search Engines" menu causes firefox to lock up and become unresponsive

Great addon but recently broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent addon but it seems to be broken of late (previously rated at 4). Press manage seach engine freezes firefox in Linux. Try to go to prefs and managing the searches from there yield no better results.

I've gotten around the bug by unhide mozilla native search ui and managing the search engines from there. not ideal/

It would be my pleasure to review my rating should this bug be fixed.

FireFox 43.0.2 bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In FireFox 43.0.2 in simple url bar mode, enter not work on first item in drop-down list and when caret at the end of URL. In previous version I use (most likely 42.0) enter key worked fine. See image: https://img-fotki.yandex.ru/get/6425/8555553.0/0_129226_c59e3411_orig.png

It should be implemented as a core feature Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely great add-on. Some time ago I was thinking about moving to Opera but it seems it's impossible to get Awesome Bar in Chromium (there is Fauxbar add-on which is not continued so it's already not working great and will be dead in the future). As I'm really used to this feature in Firefox, I started looking for a way to combine address bar and search bar and I'm happy I found this add-on.

It has everything I need and even more. I really like being able to disable searching in internet to look in bookmarks and history first and then adding search operator and change standard Awesome Bar into search bar.

Must-have add-on for me.

PS: I don't have problems with "Manage Search Engines" - maybe it was a bug in FF itself?

love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the bomb, especially once you customize your search engine shortcut keys because the vanilla firefox requires you to use the shortcut keys in the address bar, which defeats the purpose of the search bar. Anyway, @Morcas, I am experiencing the same glitch you are describing and I believe it may be because Firefox has moved where the search settings are. Currently, you can manually go to the settings menu > Options > Search and get what you normally would see.

Manage Search Engines broken Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Because of the awful changes Mozilla made to the search engine management, going forward, Omnibar is broken. When selecting Manage Search Engines the whole browser freezes and has to be forceably terminated.

I hope we'll see a fix...

Thanks for reporting the problem. Will check it out.

Must have for me Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Must have for me, with New tab homepage, one of the first I install on fresh Firefox. I wish to be able to customize this bar. I want to move the "refresh page" arrow in a more convenient place.

To those who have unwanted results Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First instal its perfect companion
Omnibar Plus
Then use the settings to re arrange how you wan the suggestions to show and if you enable autocomplete or not, you can have it back like firefox have as default or your own like.
All the low star reviews are because of this so STOP, install Omibar Plus, fix the behavior, then enjoy life again.

This add-on makes what Mozilla refuses to do despite being copying and copying Google Chrome UI
