You should rename the addon to SamSearch, it's not really a bookmark bar but more of a Search Bar. I'd love for it to be both.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3.1-signed).

What doesn't make sense to me is why a search parameter is required when just bookmarking a site. When we want to bookmark a site the URL should be just domain.com. The search function should be separated from regular bookmarks and put into it's own separate function. I notice when we go to url the address bar shows the search parameters when it really should just show the domain url.

Searching and Bookmarking are two different functions, with this addon, you have them combined the two which is not good.

New feature suggestions for the toolbar button. The ability to rename bookmark title and also the ability to move/delete bookmark. Actually if you simply made a better integration between samfind add-on and the existing firefox bookmark features, you would have the best of both worlds.

Update: found a serious bug, when you use the toolbar button to bookmark a site it uses a google address for url rather than the actual url you are bookmarking. Every site I bookmarked has a google search url, how did that happen ? Apparently the whole process of bookmarking and adding topics, etc is wacked. I'm going to have to disable this addon and look for an alternative, this one just isn't ready for prime time.

Hi,
1) samfind does allow you to rename bookmarks titles, and move / delete / add bookmarks.
2) One of the features that distinguish samfind is the ability to run searches using the websites built-in search systems. You can do this by specifying a search location for each website you bookmark, using a specific samfind-friendly syntax. If you do not specify the website search location, samfind creates a default Google site search location for you, so that you can still enjoy the feature, even if not at its full potential.

The topic customization doesn't appear to allow for subfoldering and the topic itself requires a website address so it is not technically a folder either. How to add our current bookmarks with many subfolders to the sam bar ?

Hi,

1) Real sorry, but currently samfind doesn't support subfolders, it allows only for top-level folders. This is a (huge) limitation we are aware of, and we are working hard to resolve it for the next major version, hopefully out before summer.
2) Just to clarify, a topic in samfind requires at least one website, hence the "website address" you mention is not for the folder itself, but for the initial website required at folder creation. Again, we are investigating how to remove this constraint.

without subfolders it's pretty hard to use this as an alternative bookmarks bar otherwise it would be 5 stars.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. You are 100% right, we are totally aware of the limitations caused by the lack of subfolder support, and that is why this is our #1 priority for version 3.0 (together with a couple of other nice features...).

Cheers
