Firefox just got updated to version 43. With that update, perhaps the most useful extension, Quick Search Bar, no longer works.
The developer has stated that he does not want to get it working, but is open to give the extension to another person. Hopefully someone will continue the project.
But in the meantime, I am looking for something to replace it.
Quick Search Bar efficiently solved two main tasks:
- It showed icons for all the user's search engines in a configurable bar. The user could simply click on one of the visible icons and immediately enter text in the same bar to perform a search. It was incredibly efficient.
- It allowed the user to drag-and-drop any text onto one of those icons. This would immediately search for that text using the target search engine. It was elegant and efficient.
Can anyone recommend a Firefox extension to (at least temporarily) replace Quick Search Bar? I would prefer one extension, but if it takes multiple extensions, so be it.
