Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an important search add-on for me but I often have a hard time finding it, partly because there are so many add-ons to search by image rather than search by text. I suspect more people would find and utilize this add-on if it were named something like "google image text search" or "google image search by text" if those names aren't too long.

Needs an Update! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Google changed their image search address so this works no more. It could probably be fixed easily. Please fix it, it was great to use! ... And thank you, Doc, for writing it in the first place!

Do its job perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add a search engine in the search engine bar. Probably people who said it doesn't work, don't know how it works. They should provide more info.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

There is a better solution... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Don't bother with this or any other search bar plugin.
Instead, install the "Add to Search Bar" add-on by Dr. Evil and you will be able
to add ANY search engine you'll ever come across to your Firefox search bar.
Just right-click in its search field and choose "Add to Search Bar".
Easy as that.

404 errors Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have just started getting 404 errors with every search I do with this add-on.
This is a new thing as it did work well before today
Will try with HTTPS Disabled thanks to another reviewer.

Can't live without it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know for how long I have been using this, must have been quite a few years and I cannot live without it. In fact this is the first or one of the first add-ons I install after getting a new computer. I got a new computer for work and I am still setting it up and now again this is the first search tool I am installing. I tried to find it in Firefox add-on page but couldn't find it and I was dismayed because I thought I lost it. Finally I Googled for "google image searchbar" and there it is, my good ol' reliable image search tool :)

I am loving it!

Recently stopped working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I thought the plugin had broken -- turns out it just currently conflicts with HTTPS-Everywhere. If you use both, you have to disable HTTPS-Everywhere for Google Images.

Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. I'm a graphic designer, and my google search is mainly images, so it helped me a lot. This made image research very easy and fast. Works perfectly. Thumbs up!

Good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although I find Google itself stinky this alternate search for the pictures is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really like this addon. 5 stars for how long I've used it and how satisfied I am. However, I have the same glitch as the last guy. Suddenly it fails to function. Upon pressing the enter key, little loading box appears in the status bar nothing happens.. for a fraction of a second and it says done; but no google images.

stopped working for me Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It stopped working for me recently .. will there be an update? Not sure if it stopped working because Google changed the way their image search works but what ever the reason .. I loved this add-on and want it to work again!

Meh. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The plugin Searchbar Autosizer will screw with your search settings if you have the "revert to default" option enabled - don't enable it.

This plugin works fine, but I don't like the icon and I want the old image format, so I'm not using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly. Even the auto-completion works.
The only minor annoyance is that the G icon is cut a bit at the bottom.

Google Image Basic Search Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good job.
I´m experiment with this add, if you put this parameter in your xml file <Param name="sout" value="1"/> you convert the google images search in basic mode and solve my problem with the new interface. I´m disapointed of the new interface of google images.
Sorry for my english.
