Conflict with speed-dial Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It conflicts with FVD Speed-dial. When some sites redirect me to a new window, there is only an empty page there. I found that this addon causes it. I can give you links, if you need to.
Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hope the auto-copy function can copy images, then I cound uninstall another extension :) Thanks!This user has a previous review of this add-on.
What do you mean by copy? Copy it to your clipboard or save it onto hard disk? If the latter, then use drag-n-drop save image in Fastest Search. The former is available in Firefox by right click on image and choose "Copy Image" - I realize it's not as fast as selecting and auto-copy but it's also hard to only select image (if you do select both image and text, then which one should I auto-copy?).
Not useful Rated 3 out of 5 stars
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"
But that addon have it this is what I need :) History about addon heh I dont care but what I care is customized pages and right click menu. Not icon but name like Instantfox have it. How will I find 20 pages now I have in instantfox without page names? I dont need 50000 settings etc. what I need is customized page thats all. This is the reason why Instanfox was awesome it was simple addon easy to use etc. 40min video what I need is customized page and right click menu thats all!. not some weird icon in that smaller window but right click menu with page names this is what I need... Very easy to find, use etc.
I will give u 3 stars. If this addon had right click menu with page and not that pointless small window with icons I will use it but now I can`t even if I try....Who will remember 30+ shotrcuts for pages and is not even faster and this is "Fastest Search" name most be changet to slower search.
I added page and that page was not even in that small window with icons, even if was 20+ icons in that small window will be pointless. Problem is that some page don˙t even have icon what now? But this addon don`t save pages in right click...
Popular: If this addon had right click menu with page will be a lot and a lot more popular but is ok with me is your addon. Everyone look 3 picture and what they see few integrated pages oh I mean 1 Youtube and sure they skip this addon. Look previews for this addon and for Instantfox and which one has less settings etc. Instantfox but still have a lot more reviews than this addon. Right click menu for pages is a lot more simple a lot more faster etc. and for sure who will remember all shortcuts for page which is for 30+ pages impossible.
This addon is Slower search not Fastest Search. ppl need to remember shortcuts for page and they need to type every shortcuts that mean Slower Search not Fastest Search that for sure!!!
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.

Top Shelf App!...Only One Recommendation.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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!!

Brilliant! One Of The Best Firefox Add-Ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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!

Best Multi Tasking Tool Ever!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Let me honest....I am one of those netizens that use 25+ addons and have used a lot of extensions but this one easily takes up in my top 5 list....The miracles it can achieve is overwhelming but just to name a few: Search suggestions with result right from the addressbar+autocopy text on selection+middle click to paste+find text across multiple tabs w/o regex and list them+Right click and drag images in 4 diagonal direction to save them in 4 customizable location+Do simple maths calculation right from the location+...............
The list is endless (literally speaking) ;]
One of those addons u find complicated at first but cannot live without it after getting the hang of it...hats off dev
Thanks a lot for the kind words!!
The very best search addon in the world Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I'm afraid there are still compatibility issues even with Version 3.39.2 and e10s manually enabled, and all other addons disabled: I still cannot export/import searches, and the right click to preview in Smart Searchbox does not open the preview panel either (Switching to "Default preview" does nothing either). As soon as I manually disable e10s, they both work perfectly. (W8.1x64 and FF49.0.2)
Could you please look at it?
Yes. FS doesn't support e10s. It'll take a while b4 I release an e10s version. It's a big big rewrite unfortunately...
One of the best add-ons. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is one of my favorite add-ons, especially for the Smart Search Box, but recently the Search Panel stop working. It doesn't show when I hit Ctrl+Shift+F. How can we fix it?
Congratulations to the author for his great job.
Hmm, did some other addon take that shortcut? What happens when you do Ctrl-Shift-F? That might give a clue as to which addon took it. Or you can disable other addons one by one to figure it out. It's pretty much certain it's due to other addons interfering.
If you go to FS's Options -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Use Ctrl-F to open ..., then press Ctrl-F, would that work? Another alternative is to use find-as-you-type. You can activate it on-the-fly by typing an '/' in front of your search phrase. Give it a try. I almost never use the Find/Search Panel myself. Always FAYT.
Add on Incredible !!! The developer deserves a Nobel Prize! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I feel really inspired with such work, while never commented on an extension so far.in all extensions of the type is the most powerful to add extreme possibilities, which have helped me walk through the web (whether working or not) more efficient, fast and accurate way. So complex in all the features offered takes some time to know well and adapted to get as much as possible, but once achieved worth the effort, friend, I'm really grateful You deserve a big applause !, you send an email with an idea that will surely seem useful.
For those who have the problem that they will not show the Smart SearchBox, had the same problem, and I could not fix it, fix it with in a way, first press Ctrl + Alt + L, then go to the menu of FS, press on Smart SearchBox not show, press Ctrl + Alt + L, re-activate the Smart SearchBox, and then again press Ctrl + Alt + L, verifies and displays, but restarts.
Thanks for the lavish praise! Glad to be of help. Also thanks for the suggestion of fixing SSB not showing, I was never able to reproduce SSB just simply won't show, so I never knew how to fix that. I'll suggest to anyone who has same issue.
Smart searchbox changes usually not saved Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hi Mingyi and thanks for this great addon! Among the many very helpful features, there is one that I find a serious bug in it. The changes I make in Smart searchbox, such as editing SSB engines, can only be saved at rare and apparently random times, although all the other setting categories seem to change with no problems...This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.39.1).
Plugin will be better than great if you could give 'F1' key back to me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just tried Fastest Search, it's great. Just one thing. You assigned the F1 key to hightlight text search result in page, but I have other task for the 'F1'. I can't find any setting to reassign F1, that's so sad. I think a plugin shouldn't hog a Function key for itself. If you can make a setting to let us choose other hot key, that would be nice and make this great plugin better.
-- Yeah! The setting worked, I just didn't try it cause I didn't thought it would work for F1 too. The developer respond very quickly, and my problems solved. Thank you!
The setting is there. "Keyboard Shortcuts"->"Do not use F2/F3 etc. to navigate thru matches"

Search engines Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For some reason all my search engines got replaced by default search engines and I cant import my own ones from file anymore. Is there a way to rescue them somehow without registering everyone again?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.39.1). This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
A true productivity booster! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon has a somewhat steep learning curve, but all the time invested into learning it is easily recovered by just using Fastest Search in you daily web browsing.
The developer truly cares about his addon and constantly making sure it is up-to-date and working with the latest Firefox versions.
For me this is the single best productivity addon I have used and is indispensable in my daily web browsing experience. It is also one of my favorite addons overall in my entire collection.
Thank you Mingyi Liu for this amazing addon!
Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am happy that the new version of FS is finally signed. I mised it a lot. This extension is a must have and indispensable for smoothly browsing the internet.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.39.1).
Absolute Favorite Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is one of the most useful add-ons for FireFox.
The ability to highlight, search with almost any engine/site and even auto copy makes this one of best add-ons, and indeed the reason why I've stayed with FireFox
Thanks for explaining the delay and workaround Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is my favorite addon and I was really shocked to discover that the verification of addons could not be disabled in about:config anymore. Until you have a verified version I will use the workaround you suggested, installing the addon over and over again after a firefox restart, that's just how much I love your extension. Good luck with updating and I am so very grateful that you are willing to share your hard work in making firefox so much smarter and faster with us!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.38.0). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Thanks! I appreciate the kind words! Sadly the AMO review process wasn't going fast much of last week - FS got stuck on position 7 for a few days and now is still just #6. Hopefully next week the review queue gets moving and get it out finally.
