Works nicely here with Firefox 37.0.2 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Though difficulties to use the add-on's settings' assistance (the "virtual" Searchbox resizer is blocked). Also I had slight problems a week ago which I have no more once I refuse assistance after install ("Cancel" button) and restart Firefox immediately, even if the add-on is built to run without restart. I think many so called "No Restart" add-ons integrate better to the browser after a restart, but that's only my opinion.

So, I do hope the developer continues focusing on this add-on because it's really helpful, well thought.

Ive used it since 2006, but FF isn't what it used to be, the great ones are falling everywhere. PaleMoon ftw.

Great for FireFox 33 and older - no good in FireFox 34 and newer. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on used to be at the top of my "must have" list. Unfortunately, changes in FireFox 34 and later have caused this add-on to no longer work correctly, and the developer has stated he is no longer maintaining it.

long time needed!

Great, but in need of an update! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This simple, but effective add-on has always been one of my favorites. Unfortunately, it doesn't play well with Firefox 34. When set to resize "on every keypress," the new dropdown box jumps left and right with every keypress. I do hope there will be an update to fix this, although I have read that the original author (Kevin Cox) is no longer maintaining this add-on.

It's a great add-on, but it's veeery broken with 34b11.

Strange behaviour with Firefox 29.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,
since updating to the newes Firefox, Searchbar Autosizer shows a strange behaviour while typing searches. The suggestion popup doesn't stay under the searchbar. It moves to a position under the second tab and jumps back when I add a space in the search.
In former versions of firefox there was no such issue.
Can you fix it?
Edit: issue has gone since Firefox update 30.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.1.1-signed). 

Thanks for letting me know. If you report your bug in our tracker I can work to fix it.

Dosn't work anymore after update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm not sure if it is cause of the new version of the add-on or by the update of Firefox from 29.0 to 29.0.1 but when I started Firefox today the searchbar was gone, after adding it back it just behaves like the normal searchbar – the addon has not effect.
I hope this is gone be fixed, since I love this add-on!

I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble. With the new versions of firefox there is trouble when the customize toolbar menu is opened. Try restarting firefox and see if autosizer works then.

If that does not fix your problem please submit a bug report so that we can help fix this issue.

What happened? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I love this addon, but now it doesn't work. In place of the search field is just a long string of gray icons. Please fix it and I would love to revise my review.

The latest update 3.0.1 broke the addon. Why is testing not done before something is released as production version? Else if this is beta, it should at least be marked so!

Have submitted a bug report on GitHub. Fix and earn 5 stars.

To be fair, the addon is otherwise great, especially with not requiring a restart.

Hello Hash,

I'm sorry that the update broke your setup. I don't know where you submitted the bug report as we don't have a github tracker but if you could create an issue on launchpad I would love to fix it.

在FF29下关键功能失效 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

感谢作者,很好的扩展。但在FF29下,设置搜索栏最小长度的参数失效了,求解决求更新。

Excellent idea, works well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Only found out about this yesterday after submitting my own script to userstyles, doing a very similar thing, but this' still a smart solution to have more room for the urlbar.

My script cant autoresize, but has expand on hover and is still partially compatible with this, if you choose clear search query after submitting, which isnt the best trade off cause checking last search query is why youd want expand on hover most of the time

Anyway added instructions to use that script with this addon installed if anyones interested to try it. In practice the main difference other than the trade off is when its shrunk, you see the active search engine icon instead of this addons Go button. Can check it out here http://userstyles.org/styles/96225/search-and-url-bar-tweaks

Perfect for what I need Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With this addon I'm able to use just a single bar at the top of firefox, saving vertical space. Very helpful.

Thank you for a great addon!
There is also a suggestion. It would be great to have searchbar enlarged when the cursor is just placed there without entering any letter

Thanks for the suggestion. I have created an item in our tracker (https://bugs.launchpad.net/autosizer/+bug/1253719) so that I remember to get around to it. Hopefully I can get around to it soon.

minor bug... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The "Empty searchbar when a query is submitted" feature no longer works in latest 21.0a1 nightlies (even tried the 2.0.15 version from SourceForge).

Thanks for letting me know. I opened a bug report for this issue https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/33/ and I will get to it as soon as possible (I am a little busy right now).

works! also with sync Rated 5 out of 5 stars

it was and is a bit "strange/tricky" to set up, because imho, some important information are missing on the options-page itself (maybe not at the wiki, but i never checked...), but it worked in a few minutes to set up as i needed it. thank you!

The ability to auto-remove text from the search bar only is worth it, while the screen real estate it saves is really useful. Suggestions: 1) An optional "X" overlay to empty the contents of the search bar (if one has not opted for the automatic clearing) 2) Right-click on the search bar to go to the options. 3) Make the searchbar resizable by drag-and-drop (e.g., the minimum if the option is set to make it enlarge with typing, or as the fixed size if one has opted for the fixed option)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.14.1-signed). 

Thank you for the suggestions and the donation is highly appreciated.

For 1 I believe it is out of the scope of this addon and is best handled by a separate addon. If you have a reason why it should be in this addon feel free to open an enhancement request.

I have created tickets on our issue tracker for 2 and 3. I am not sure about 2 and I would have to look how to implement it but I really like 3 and will implement that when I get a moment. The links for 2 and 3 respectively are https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/29/ https://sourceforge.net/p/autosizer/tickets/30/
