Significantly improves text search functionality! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Shows hits relative to page location in the scrollbar like chrome, and the "find all" feature (press "Find All" or Alt+L after a search) is awesome!

"3 hours spent in last 90 days". Thanks for no regex work.

This user has 4 previous reviews of this add-on.

Going beyond the fact that regex search is a highly complex feature to implement correctly, quoting only the time I spent on FBT is unfair, and very disheartening honestly, because if you can see that counter then you surely must also understand in what context it is being shown... Taking it out of context like that is just wrong. For instance, I have spent over 500 hours across all my add-ons (granted a lot was for Tab Groups) in the last five months. Considering the support I've received for FBT has been far below enough to justify my *full* time and dedication to *just* implementing regex, to reply to your statement, you're welcome.

There is a lot going on in the world of Firefox add-ons; for instance before anything else I must ensure FBT keeps working in future versions of Firefox, as attention and development efforts are shifted towards WebExtensions. This means possibly having to rewrite the whole thing even! That is a huge task to undertake, which I will not complicate further by bringing extra (overly complex!) features into the mix at this time. Ensuring the add-on keeps working takes precedence over absolutely everything else.

And that includes deep changes to the find and highlighting mechanisms that are coming in a future version of Firefox (possibly 50). I am not looking forward to integrating those with FBT (which of course will be necessary, otherwise the add-on just won't work at all), as I foresee having to dedicate days on end, possibly weeks, to *just* do that.

Not to mention I haven't had a proper workstation for a couple of weeks now, where I can properly work on things, so there's that too.

All this to say, I do appreciate your continued support for this long, but you must understand that, despite my best intentions, FBT or any of my other add-ons is not my life, so making sarcastic passive-aggressive demands like that really helps no one, not me and definitely not you. ;)

Actually works, and is delicate Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pretty much was aiming for find bar on top, found couple of other things too

Great, but can't search in tab titles Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In v 2.1.10 it can't search in the *titles* of tabs.

Often the title text is in text of the page, but not always. Eg, for my roundcube email, the string "Webmail" is in the tab title and not on the page and FindBar didnt find it.

The other usage (even bigger) is re-load firefox and restore tabs, and unloaded pages (in tabs) have titles but no page content. Very important for me personally to be able to find these tabs without having to load all the corresponding pages.

I submitted a request for this feature:

Criticism aside, searching content in all tabs on page, or all tabs in all windows, works GREAT with this addon. Most tab-searching addons are limited to only searching the tabs in this one window. FindBar has a mode where you search all tabs in all windows. Very helpful!!!!

Also The "sighting" visual circle zeroing-in thing (kinda like a GPS maps location circle) is very helpful to see where on the page it is.

we need a Chrome version, pls Rated 5 out of 5 stars

could you develop an extension for Chrome as well, although we can highlight the search term on the scroll bar, we need hightlight at least two words on the different scroll bar simultaneously.

I don't make extensions for chrome. Even if I did, something like this is just not possible there.

Addon and the developer are both awesome. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great customer support and a phenomenal product!

Makes the search bar look nearly identical to the one in Google Chrome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While I much preferred to use a style to achieve this, changes within Firefox itself made it break. This extension fixes that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

Slow on large pages Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's dead on 9MB pages. 100% cpu time.

Tried with 2.1.10. Pretty much same thing. And it's not "thousands of matches". On 0 match it works around 2 minutes. If I write 7 letter word, I guessing it will work at least 14 minutes, because it does something after each keypress.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

It's not so much the size of the page, but how many matches it has. If you search for text that has thousands of matches in a page... well, yeah it's going to be slow.

The latest update (2.1.10, uploaded today) introduces a few improvements to memory and processing handling of tabs.

If that update doesn't help with your case, or if you think that's not what is causing the slowdown, please either e-mail me or open an issue in the support page about this, so that we can communicate properly as I'll need more information, otherwise there isn't anything I can do about it.

Nice work ! But ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Real great addon. Just lack either regex search ability or compatibility with 'Regex Find' addon (in fact, when Findbar Tweak is enable, regex search won't work but if I disable it, it works again).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

Adding compatibility with that add-on is just impossible because of the way it is constructed (not multiprocess friendly). On the positive side, that is a feature that's already planned, but it's far from simple to implement (correctly).

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A rather powerful tool, Findbar tweak has been my default "finder" for half a year now... I don't even know how to find things on my "regular Chrome" session.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

It works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it and its great settings. Options – this is very good.
After the update search does not work until you reboot – norestart does not work. But it is predictable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

EDIT: Starting with the next version, this should no longer happen.

Yep, that's a known bug that I hope to fix for the next update.

Work flawlessly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does just what it promises, and the visual hints are something I can't believe I lived so long without!

Awesome addition to search tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love two features of this addon. First one is creating animated circle around found phrase that helps to focus on it. Second feature I like is painting marks on scrollbar of approximate position of found phrase.

Very useful and well made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks a lot for this very important add-on.

旧バージョンのFFとの互換性がない点について Rated 5 out of 5 stars



個人的な原因で FF ESR を利用することになりましたが、
ESR は最新バージョンが 38.6 となっています。

FindBar Tweak をインストールすることができず、非常に
苦しんでおります。旧バージョンのFF についてもご利用

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.8). 

As you seem to have realized already, the next ESR version 45 will be released sometime next month, and I will ensure that new versions remain compatible with it until the next major ESR release. For now, you'll have to use version 2.0.6 of the add-on, which is the latest one compatible with Firefox 38.

Супер! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Классное расширение! Как раз то что я искал, я уж и не надеялся что найду что то подобное) После оперы поиск на странице в мозиле сильно не понравился, неудобное уг, и вот наконец нашел не просто замену, а хорошую замену) даже думаю что нет особого смысла смотреть/искать альтернативы (ну если ток из интереса, и если они ваще есть, хотя бы стоящие).
Функционала и настроек вполне достаточно чтоб обустроить себе удобный поиск по вкусу (да, поиск по умолч. меня лично не устроил, ну пройдясь по настройкам сделал такой поиск какой хотел). Кста настройки симпатичные и удобные. И да все на русском, что не может не радовать)
Конечно не сказал бы что оно идеально, например кнопки направления поиска такие как по умолч. - маленькие(нет возможности поменять...), ну и настроек/возможностей поиска можно было бы еще побольше (ну это уже не критично).

Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would love to see the option to change the roundness of the corners of of the search field box when it's set to stick to the top. Just like in your other addon: Beyond Australis. Otherwise, it's a great addon! 10/10

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.8). 

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :)

I have wanted to do that forever, but there are a few problems with that kind of corners (you can surf around Beyond Australis's support page to find a few if you want) which I'd like to resolve before that. And some of those require some changes in Firefox, in particular e10s to finally arrive, in order to work "better".
