    Firefox Instantfox addon problems

    I use instantfox addon and it merges search into the adressbar. It works fine if I pick my search with the arrows on the keyboard but if I try to select search with the mouse it does only search the few letters I had written.

    If I use the same addon on Palemoon browser it works just fine.

    Anyone know a solution to this? Thanks

    I have the same problem. In addition, the last letter of a search topic is truncated. I tried using changing the default search engine and using "g" for Google to see if that would solve the problem, but it makes things worse. If I type g followed by a space and my search topic, when I hit enter I am directed to a blank page.

Weirdly...

Firefox Download Statusbar AddOn Resume
Generally Firefox Statusbar AddOn works quite well. The only annoying behavior I've found so far is, if you try to Resume a partial download, and the WiFi you are using at the moment prevents the download, the Resume choice is removed and the status is changed to Failed. The behavior should be...
