Broken and Discontinued Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I can only assume from the lack of communication and updates, that the developer has ceased work in this add-on.

This add-on definitely provides a very useful functionality. However, not only it is already a bit buggy when installed with certain other add-ons, in the upcoming Firefox 25 it will break completely.

I have written my own add-on, called "FindBar Tweak", that provides a similar "Find in All Tabs" feature, which is both very powerful and easy to use at the same time. Unless work is resumed here, I would invite everyone to switch to FBT, ensuring it will remain compatible with future versions of Firefox!

I'm sorry for the spam, but I believe my add-on now becomes a necessary alternative to Find in Tabs, which will stop working completely in the very near future.

Great! Can you update for FF22 please?

Perfect - Should be standard in Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Long time I have been looking for such a function. Installed it on FF16 and it runs with endless other add-ons without any problems. Of course you have to increase the allowed FF version. But just look in other comments how to do it.

Hope the developers will come back and activate this add-on again by changing the allowed FF version. But until then it is easy to do it yourself.

Could be better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

..if it:
- searches in all windows
- searchers in titles

Be very careful! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Five stars it would definitely be, if only it didn't waste so much space without recovery. Don't even think to make the result list longer. It will stay to that length for ever and ever, and you'll have to live with it until you create a new profile!

Essential add-on for everyone who does a lot of research. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was heartbroken when this stopped working in Firefox 3.6 or 4 (don't remember). As the previous reviewer said, it's now just a matter of updating the max version in the install.rdf file. I have uploaded a new version here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/371872/find_in_tabs-0.4.0.7-fx-unofficial.xpi
This is identical with 0.4.0.6 except the max number is set to 20.*.*
If you don't trust xpi files from a stranger ;) here's how to do it yourself:
1) Unzip the .xpi file with a file compression software. Don't know how? Just rename the extension to .zip and click on it.
2) Open install.rdf in a text editor (like Notepad). If you don't know how to do it, change the extension .xpi to .txt and double-click on the renamed file.
3) Go to the line that says "<em:maxVersion>3.5.*</em:maxVersion>" and change it to a higher version as needed (my version is <em:maxVersion>20.*.*</em:maxVersion>, but of course it must at least be the version you're currently using). Close and don't forget to save. If you renamed the file to install.txt, change it back to install.rdf.
4) Re-zip all unzipped files and save as .xpi (or rename from .zip to .xpi after saving, if you changed the extension).
5) In Add-ons manager, click on the "cogwheel" icon next to the search field and select "install from file".

I wonder why Mozilla continues to treat this wonderful add-on as "dead." To anyone who can, feel free to upload my unofficial update to addons.mozilla.org.

There is no updated version of this addon at the web address the previous reviewer listed. I unzipped the XPI package and updated the max version to 13.0.1 in the install.rdf text file and it is working great for me.

Works great on FF13!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Спасибо большое NC, который выложил ссылку на Find In Tabs комментарием ниже! Скачал, установил - всё работает.
Внимание, кто будет качать - загрузку можно произвести только в определённое время - с 7 до 9 утра по среднеевропейскому.

Glitch!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I scrolled the 'find' up by half a page, Now it isnt going Down!!
What to do??

So now, when I click Find on tabs, the addon bar moves up taking 70% of the page

Nice Addon, just update the max version Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice! I always needed something like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice and speedy addon and does work on FF6 if you have addon compatibility addon installed.

But surprisingly it sometimes misses some matches - try searching for 'manual' on the all-in-one Emacs manual page (html_mono), FIT reports 121 matches while there should be 140.

There are other less critical issues too, but overall it's well designed.

Одно из моих любимых расширений. Плохо что разработчик прекратил поддержку. К сожалению альтернатив этому расширению нет.
ENG: One of my favorite extensions. Bad that the developer has stopped supporting. Unfortunately there is no alternative to this extension.

Fantastic tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this add-on but as it is on the site now, it will not work with Firefox 3.6.

However, I've found a way to get it to work (I'm using Firefox 3.6.15).

First, have the MR Tech Toolkit extension installed. Then you'll need 7-zip.

Save the XPI file from here to your computer. Open the XPI file in 7-zip (right click, 7-zip, open archive). Navigate into the directories defaults, preferences, find prefs.js, right click, edit (mine opens up in Notepad).

Find "checkcompatability" and change the "true" after it to "false." Then File, Save, File, Exit.

7-zip will say a file was modified and ask you "Do you want to update it in the archive". Click OK. Close 7-zip. Then open the XPI file in Firefox (File, Open file is one way) and click override maxcompatibility checking. Then install.

(Although I still get blank space if I try to drag the top window of the find results down.)

Great, useful functionality. Works as intended.

I'm surprised Firefox doesn't support this capability natively.
