Hi there, absolutely love the add-on, it's probably my single most-used addition to Firefox. However, since version 13 of Firefox has been released, I've found that no matter what Search Engine I have selected, Foobar will always search using Google. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hello All -

Thank you for your continued use of Foobar!!! You've all been very patient with me, and I appreciate it.

I've been waiting for Mozilla's Add-on SDK to be feature-complete enough for me to use for Foobar - but it's just not quite there yet, and I realize that as of Firefox 13 I can wait no longer.

I'm currently working on v2.0 - which is a ground-up rewrite - and I will be seriously evaluating each and every piece of functionality. Some pieces might change, and some may be taken out altogether. Ultimately, I want Foobar to be lean and easy to use...

Thanks again for your patience - Craig

A couple of problems hoping you will fix with V2.0.

1. There is a conflict with the add-on ... r/?src=api This add-on places a hovered link on the URL bar instead of the bottom left of the window. The search engine icon is no longer visible on the URL bar with this add-on.

2. Without your add-on, entering something like cnn will take me to because I setup Fx to append www. and .com. With your add-on it will do a search using the search engine icon that is showing. Can there be an option to not have any search engine for those times that I want to use the append feature, or some other method to accomplish the same thing?

Max number of URL suggestion is broken. Even I made it 50 it shows 13 of them.

Not sure if craigpierce/encoder is still supporting this add-on, but it does not fully function in Fx36. The autocomplete does not work. There are several comments about it in the add-on's comments page.
