Simple but great !

No Search Site popup menu at the one-off Search Engine buttons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've add several search engines (e.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/always-com-googlecom-in-englis/ , https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/startpage-ssl/ ) which are capable of searching sites, but they can't be right-clicked to show the Search Site popup menu at the one-off Search Engine buttons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4.1-signed). 

Fixed in Version 5.5 ...

This issue is fixed in Search Site 5.5. There is now a list of installed search engines in the Search Site Options dialog, and for each search engine you can specify whether it is capable of searching within a site. To be capable of searching within a site, a search engine must recognize the 'site:' keyword in the search terms.

Brilliant, versatile, but ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But nothing in fact as long as Firefox's Search Bar (new or old) is made available. And indeed Firefox (37.0.1 here) has the Search Bar on the browser by default. So no point to incriminate 'Search Site' which runs and performs flawlessly.

Nevertheless a little dream -- not even a suggestion because not legitimate -- a simple wish that 'Search Site' could handle a Firefox GUI scheme where the Search Bar has been integrated to the URL Bar.

Here I've opted for that urlbar/searchbar combination with an add-on called Foobar. Everything runs smoothly and if I've decided to keep this option and dedicated add-on it is for a personal taste rather than for an obvious universally recognized reason : users may and most likely may have another approach. But.. for those as myself who have abandoned the Search Bar and who wish nevertheless to have access to a site search utility such as 'Search Site', the issue is a pain, rather : I truly miss the ability to have a dedicated search site running without the Search Bar!

Therefor... (drums!) if 'Search Site' could provide an option to add its search icon to the URL bar (for those who have abandoned the Search Bar of course) then I'd say "Why not Santa surfin' USA?!"

You see, just a sweet dream. I understand this is no more.

Improvements in Version 5.3

The idea of a 'Search Site' icon in the URL bar will be considered for the next major release.

In the meantime, Search Site 5.3 will be released in the next few days. This version fixes several significant bugs that prevented some of the features working as intended with the new search bar,

Search Sites with Near Full Control Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this add-on without issue in Palemoon 25.x and Firefox 32+ (haven't upgrade to 34, yet) for quite some time. I tried all, but maybe 1 or 2, of the other site searches and this one had more of the options I wanted, than any other, including the unobtrusive design. This thing is pretty sweet and a must-try.

I absolutely love the ability to change domain and sub-domain on-the-fly.... the only thing this add-on is really missing, is the ability to alter the search, also, "on-the-fly" to be enclosed in quotes or not (as is, you have to go to options to change that). Other than that, the only other "minor" request that I'd make is for the middle-click to load a new tab in the background, as opposed to foreground, but that's very minor.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.1-signed). 

Good idea, but ....

Being able to change the "enclosed in quotes" option on-the-fly is a good idea, but finding a nice user interface for this feature may be difficult. The simplest way would be to add two more menu items, "Within subdomain (in quotes)" and "Within entire domain (in quotes)", to the popup menu, but this feels a bit clumsy. Using combinations of Alt, Ctrl & Shift keys would be awkward, because all the simple combinations are already used to redirect the search results.

Fantastic. Problem with FF34 Fixed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Has worked great since I started using it several versions back. Developer is responsive and clearly knows what he's doing ta boot.

New version coming shortly

Search Site 5.0 will be released shortly and will provide:

- full integration with the drop-down search panel in Firefox 34
- a powerful new feature in the drop-down search panel to add "search within site" to any search
- full backwards compatibiliy with earlier versions of Firefox (working like Search Site 4.4)

Works in same way as Firefox search box

In the search box, Search Site's (green) magnifying glass icon works in the same way as Firefox's normal (blue) magnifying glass icon. You can use modifier keys when clicking the icon to alter where the search results are displayed. For example, Ctrl+Click will open the search results in a new foreground tab. The same modifier keys can be used when clicking on the Search Site context menu item.

Great but the icons got to go Rated 3 out of 5 stars

like Rez1dent, i dont like where the icons put, having two virtually the same inside a tiny searchbox is too distracting, think it should just be moved outside the searchbox, made into a seperate icon like "Site Searcher 2.0" does it (going by the screenshots) and as this is a better addon, letting you use any search engine youve got, holding out for a update to improve the ui, and have it deactived for now

Good Concept Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A really good concept of one of the most utilized themes(searching within a site). Though i wud request one feature addition from author. I usually use search bar only for searching within a site using this addon, so can some feature be incorporated that on pressing enter in search bar the current site is searched by default (currently we need to press searchsite icon).
Thanks

Feature already exists

This feature already exists in Search Site. You can press Ctrl+Enter in the search bar to search within a site.

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Success!! Update version 3.4 makes Search Site addon work again for me with Ffox v 24(beta)!! Excellent.

Highly recommended addon (and developer!)

Recovered swiftly from being bust in Firefox 23 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Yup. Now fixed. Rating adjusted accordingly. (I never do 5*, just in case something earth shattering comes along, so that's as good as it gets!)Especially good to see a developer responding so quickly to comments.You don't realise how important an add-on is until it breaks. Like others, I found that Site Search broke my search functionality in Firefox 23. (Took some time to work out which add-in had done that.) It didn't take the developer more than a day or two, and a couple of iterations, to fix it. No mean feat given the number of add-ins that it could have clashed with.

Fixed in Version 3.4

Version 3.4 fixes this problem, which was caused by incompatibilities between Search Site and Tab Mix Plus or Tab Utilities. This version works with Tab Mix Plus or Tab Utilities on all versions of Firefox (3.6 - 23.0).

Worked well in FF22, but in FF23 makes Search Bar unusable! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Had to disable Search Site 3.2 when Firefox updated to 23, as it now prevents any searches from the Search Bar (nothing is clickable). Hope it gets fixed soon..!

(By the way, drop-down context menu searches are still possible, and the Address Bar could be used for searching instead - just that I prefer the Search Bar..)

Breaks FF 23.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon but it breaks the FF 23 search box in the official release. Everything seems to work OK until you press "Enter" or left click the magnifying glass icon, then nothing happens. With this addon disabled the FF search box works fine

Makes site searching so easy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Regarding the situation described below by david smith, I could not reproduce this error. I installed the add-on in two separate instances of FF v22 portable, and it worked as described at all times.

I tend to use the site: modifier quite a bit when doing more serious research, and I love being able to use keyboard shortcuts to go to the search bar and then to use the site: feature. It seems to work with both google and DDG, and continues to work if you add other modifiers like inurl:

Thanks for a great plugin! ^^
