  • Hope author build-in the (https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms} site:{hostname})
    It's cool, but many people dont's know this. we don't need install addition addon like "Search Site WE"any more.
    此扩展可以搜索当前网站,添加 https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms} site:{hostname}
    这样就不用安装 Search Site WE这样的扩展的.
    Thank you for the review! Searching the "current website" was a suggestion from a user, and I was hoping to get more people to know about "hostname", so I added it as a default (but disabled to not cause confusion). :)

    Cheers!

  • It simply wasn't quite what I was looking for. The popup was a bit annoying and in the way (and I didn't want it to show up just for highlighting text) and the context menu was inconvenient since you had to go through two menus to use it.
    I was looking for something that added a quick-search option to the right-click context menu as far up as possible.
    I can say that the plugin looks well designed, though, but it just didn't have the features I wanted :)
    UPDATE: I see, thanks for explaining! I'm not sure if you'll get a notification for this reply, but oh well.

    For the popup being annoying there are options to make it appear only when you click a key combination, or move it away from the cursor, for example. The options page has many of these. :)

    As for the context menu being a sub menu, unfortunately that's, as far as I know, a WebExtensions limitation that I can't do anything about :( (Unless there's a single search engine!) See this for more details: https://github.com/CanisLupus/swift-selection-search/issues/129

    But I understand. Thanks anyway!

    Hi! I'm replying to your review to ask: can tell me what you didn't like about SSS? Or did something not work correctly? Feedback is important to me. :)

    If you don't want to give info in the review, you can always shoot me an email at daniel.rb.lobo+sss@gmail.com if you have the time.

    Thanks!

  • удобная вещь
  • i like this.. but i have a small problem with it.
    after the change and customize the setting and restart the browser all the change reset... its my problem or your extension?
    Hey, thanks for the review! :) Here it's working well and no settings are reset when restarting the browser. Maybe your Firefox is having problems each time it starts? Try seeing if other addons (that don't use Firefox Sync) also reset when restarting.

    Cheers!

  • The add-on is fantastic! Unfortunately I am too stupid to add Amazon, ebay, google maps and other sites to the search links. I just do not know how to find the right addresses (url). Unfortunately, Google could not help me either ;)
    Could this be added as an answer to my rating or can someone specify the url in their own review ... or is there a website where I can find them? Thank you
    Hi! Some search URLs are really hard. I also found Amazon and eBay URLs hard to decipher. Maybe this means that I should add more example search engines to SSS by default. :)

    I suggest you try these. I hope they help:

    Amazon.com (change .com to something else for other countries)
    httpa://www.amazon.com/s?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords={searchTerms}

    Google Maps
    https://www.google.com/maps/search/{searchTerms}

    eBay
    http://www.ebay.com/sch/{searchTerms}

    If something is wrong please email me at daniel.rb.lobo+sss@gmail.com. Conversations in reviews are not great for notifications. ;)

    Thank you very much for the review, by the way. It's really appreciated!

  • Excellent choice if you want a selection search that gives a lot of configuration options.
  • One of the best add-on on firefox. But I can't use the amazon search.I couldn't find the exact url to search text
    Hi! I've added Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk as example default engines just now in version 3.28.0, since I also find Amazon URLs to be hard to decipher. I suggest trying this URL:

    httpa://www.amazon.com/s?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords={searchTerms}

    If you use other Amazon sites such as .co.uk, .de, .es, etc, you should be able to simply replace .com with that. :) I hope this helps and sorry that my reply comes so late!

    And thanks a lot for the review. Really appreciated. ;)

  • Эдакая замена Auto Context 1.5.0.3. При выделении всплывает окно для Копирования, Открыть урл, Поиск, Перевод - есть настраиваемые пункты меню
  • Edit: pop-up disable does not work even though I set "When to open the popup" to "Off (never)". FF 70.0.1 64-bit

    Very handy extension which saves me tons of time
  • Superbe module! Très pratique. Très utile. Très personnalisable et très fiable!
    Bravo et merci ! ! !
  • I didn't know that I needed this add-on until I found it. IMHO, it is the best Firefox extension that I have ever seen. Very highly recommended, obviously.

    Incidentally, though the add-on works fine "as is", the dev is amazing in how quickly he responds to questions and suggestions. Just e-mail him at daniel.rb.lobo+sss@gmail.com, as AMO reviews are not the right place to ask for help.
    Wow, thank you, Defrilitus! Really appreciate the review and the praise. ;)
  • This is a Firefox "Featured Extension" for a good reason. I've tailored all my necessary 16 search engines with relative ease. Except for Twitter, which I'm still having trouble customizing. Easy 5 star extension! Thank you Daniel.
    Sorry for only replying now!

    I hope you got Twitter figured out. If not you can send me an email to daniel.rb.lobo+sss@gmail.com (reviews are bad for notifications) and I'll see if I can help. :) A simple Twitter search should work using:

    https://twitter.com/search?q="{searchTerms}"
    (Added quotes to be able to search for phrases more consistently.)

    Maybe you want to do something more complex, though.

    Thank you very much for the review! :)
