Love, love, love.
Had to install FF ESR, but cannot live without FS.
Need the auto-copy, the always working image save, and mostly the search engine panel, the multi tab search.
What would you need to work on the upgrade?
I'm no coder, but last December I send you USD10 to encourage you.
for new firefox 57+ use
both of them woke perfectly
Total S___ addon: Author has disabled the ability to disable key parts of this addon - e.g.: the so-called "shopping assistant". Total s___! Too bad, it used to be a good addon. If this is corrected, I'll amend this review, but from his attitude it will probably Remain s___.
very efficient ！ very useful ! Hope further version support new firefox Quantum and Chrome. Thank you very much!
hope to see the support for FF 57+
Smart and fast browsing with the ability to use your own favorite sites/searches. Highlight a word and a bubble containing your favorites will pop up.
Btw Mingyi Liu have you considered Waterfox instead of Chrome? Just discovered it yesterday and its great: faster, respects privacy, gives freedom of choice by allowing to use unsigned extensions, etc.
Dear Dev, just came here to thank you for your hard work over the years. I must do this so mush earlier, because i use your add-on like forever and its one of my al-time-favorite. Even FS its not update for 57+ yet, i will give it 6/5 star for all the previous years of using this amassing add-on with no problem. FS is one of these add-ons, that make your surfing experience fluid, intuitive and fast. For now i try to use other alternatives, that have some of its functionality, but i am totally ready for your update version. :)
Again, thank you! And, pls, ignore my English, its not my native language.
I used to rate it 5 stars.
Lack of support for FF57 is a huge disappointment.
Great extension!! I am still using this extension in some updated FF with XUL support. ver 3.39 in Waterfox 55.2 and ver3.31 in Palemoon 27.5 ;) Thanx!
Update: Likely FS will be updated for FF57, but I'm seriously weighing the option to switch to support Chrome instead. Before I finally update FS for FF57+, I personally just switched FF update option in General to "check for updates but let you choose to install". I will post updates on the status here or on my website.
very useful, great add-on.
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.
Its very nice to have such a great Tool!
Really great one! Hope it'll be updated to work with firefox 57+

This feature really works. I can see the difference. Thank you, Firefox. Great job!
you are a brillant guy , Good job , i recommend this extension
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.
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.
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.
Fastest Search is one of my favorites addon. Congratulations! Please, update it for FF 57!!!
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.
Best replacement for Instant Fox addon
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!!
Best thing i needed for my job wish i would found it sooner
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!
