Non-legacy version? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Hi Mingyi, thank you for writing such a great little addon. However, with the change to add-on compatibility in FF 57 going forward, will a non-legacy version of Fastest Search be released? I can't imagine browsing without Fastest Search, to be honest! Cheers, I certainly hope so. Thank you again.
*edit* Smartbox disappearing and not displaying despite using the keyboard shortcut -- pretty disappointed with this and the continued silence from developer. I tried the fix that Leonel suggested but it didn't work; CTRL + ALT + L didn't bring up any sort of notification or refresh.
*reply to author* Fair enough, Mingyi and sorry if it came across as patronizing when I said 'little addon' -- that's more on this user not utilizing its full capability, I'm sure, and it can't be easy to constantly re-write and edit each time for every iteration of FF. So I guess FS is not going to work beyond 56? That's really disappointing to hear. Would a compromise be possible at all? For instance, is it possible for the smart searchbox functionality to be ported over in some fashion?
I wish it was a "little addon". Most of the addons out there are tiny compared to this one. That's why I'm far from being able to port this one to webextensions, which despite all its progress, just won't support a number of FS's features.
Highly Recomended Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Its very nice to have such a great Tool!
Best addon I've tried Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It will be updated. I'm just incredibly behind schedule.

Superb Addon but it seams to have stopped working on FF54 64x (2017-06-24) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Superb Addon but it seams to have stopped working on FF54 64x (2017-06-24)
I hope one day they make this the default standard.
Thanks a lot for your time.
Did you accidentally enable multiprocess?
FS works fine with FF54 64bit (I'm using it now), but not with multiprocess.
As for multiprocess support, I found myself gasping for free time now (really drowned with work and also many things in life too), so really not making much progress in addons. But I'll keep it working as I use it daily as well.
Adds so much functionality! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you take the time to learn a bit about this add-on, it can do just a plethora of things for you! Try it out for sure.

Very good addon... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Fastest Search is one of my favorites addon. Congratulations! Only one thing: the last month, I have problem with the "SmartSearchbox": the icon in the box is not corrispondent to the address in the serchbox setting. I try to reset and restart the settings, uninstall and reinstall the addon but nothing, the problem persist. I think it's a problem with the new FF vers. (from 50 and on). Can you fix it please? Many thanks!This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Not useful Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Sorry but this addon is not useful at all. I think I will stay with Instant-Fox is not up to date and url doesnt work, but at least I can add my own pages. I can open page in same tab or new etc, I like to click on word and with right click search on more than only 3 not even popular pages. Firefox use google by default so why would I use this addon? The second useful page is youtube thats all about pages in this addon.
When u do option so we can add our own pages and right-click menu maybe I will use it but for now is only one addon InstantFox
I remember InstantFox only added customizable engines AFTER Fastest Search had it for a year. Last I checked InstantFox only has a subset of FS's features. If you'd only spend time to learn FS you'd see. Watch the intro video. What you want it's already there.
FS users are among the smartest (and fastest) web users for a reason.

Top Shelf App!...Only One Recommendation.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's been years since I've had such an app (the other one was abandoned).
The only thing I can add is if when you highlight a word and the box floats above, if the icons could be more SPACED in between and also given an option to have the icons on ONE ROW or in multi-rows as it's currently set up.
Other than that. A God send for pwoer users like myself! I'm glad I found this!!

Brilliant! One Of The Best Firefox Add-Ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I was looking for a replacement for the once excellent but now defunct InstantFox (which no longer works... no fault of the developer). I thought I would have to sacrifice some power because InstantFox was an excellent search add-on. I was wrong. Not only is Fastest Search even more powerful than InstantFox was, but I agee with others who commented that it is easily in the top 5 Firefox add-ons of all times. The only word I can think of is brilliant because I don't know any word that is more superlative than that! OUTSTANDING piece of work! Keep it up!

Best Multi Tasking Tool Ever!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Let me honest....I am one of those netizens that use 25+ addons and have used a lot of extensions but this one easily takes up in my top 5 list....The miracles it can achieve is overwhelming but just to name a few: Search suggestions with result right from the addressbar+autocopy text on selection+middle click to paste+find text across multiple tabs w/o regex and list them+Right click and drag images in 4 diagonal direction to save them in 4 customizable location+Do simple maths calculation right from the location+...............
The list is endless (literally speaking) ;]
One of those addons u find complicated at first but cannot live without it after getting the hang of it...hats off dev
Thanks a lot for the kind words!!
The very best search addon in the world Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I'm afraid there are still compatibility issues even with Version 3.39.2 and e10s manually enabled, and all other addons disabled: I still cannot export/import searches, and the right click to preview in Smart Searchbox does not open the preview panel either (Switching to "Default preview" does nothing either). As soon as I manually disable e10s, they both work perfectly. (W8.1x64 and FF49.0.2)
Could you please look at it?
Yes. FS doesn't support e10s. It'll take a while b4 I release an e10s version. It's a big big rewrite unfortunately...
One of the best add-ons. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is one of my favorite add-ons, especially for the Smart Search Box, but recently the Search Panel stop working. It doesn't show when I hit Ctrl+Shift+F. How can we fix it?
Congratulations to the author for his great job.
Hmm, did some other addon take that shortcut? What happens when you do Ctrl-Shift-F? That might give a clue as to which addon took it. Or you can disable other addons one by one to figure it out. It's pretty much certain it's due to other addons interfering.
If you go to FS's Options -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Use Ctrl-F to open ..., then press Ctrl-F, would that work? Another alternative is to use find-as-you-type. You can activate it on-the-fly by typing an '/' in front of your search phrase. Give it a try. I almost never use the Find/Search Panel myself. Always FAYT.
Add on Incredible !!! The developer deserves a Nobel Prize! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I feel really inspired with such work, while never commented on an extension so far.in all extensions of the type is the most powerful to add extreme possibilities, which have helped me walk through the web (whether working or not) more efficient, fast and accurate way. So complex in all the features offered takes some time to know well and adapted to get as much as possible, but once achieved worth the effort, friend, I'm really grateful You deserve a big applause !, you send an email with an idea that will surely seem useful.
For those who have the problem that they will not show the Smart SearchBox, had the same problem, and I could not fix it, fix it with in a way, first press Ctrl + Alt + L, then go to the menu of FS, press on Smart SearchBox not show, press Ctrl + Alt + L, re-activate the Smart SearchBox, and then again press Ctrl + Alt + L, verifies and displays, but restarts.
Thanks for the lavish praise! Glad to be of help. Also thanks for the suggestion of fixing SSB not showing, I was never able to reproduce SSB just simply won't show, so I never knew how to fix that. I'll suggest to anyone who has same issue.
