About this Add-on
- Open the search engine dialog without using the search bar
- Access the search engine menu by clicking on the panel button (can be changed in the settings restore the old behaviour where the dialog was shown directly)
- Panel button highlighting when new search engines are available (can be disabled)
As you may have heard JetPack- and legacy-based extensions will very likely stop working with Firefox 57 and while updating this extension may be possible (if Mozilla implements the required functionality in time), I do not see any good reason to do so anymore:
- The search settings are now easily reachable through the application preferences.
- It is now easy to add engines by right-clicking any search field and selecting the corresponding menu item.
- How often do you change your default search engine? (be honest)
For a while I simply kept this extension around in maintenance-only mode because it was easy to do so. That will now change, so unless somebody writes a comment stating a very use-case they have for keeping it around, I will simply let it rest in peace – so that it may one day suddenly vanish, with life going on as usual.
