Peers - The Missing Search for Firefox

author alang


Peers provides realtime search previews for your searchbar like Inquisitor for Safari. It makes your web experience much more comfy.

Search Google or Yahoo while you type. A realtime preview shows up immediately.

Use site-search for, Wikipedia and many more sites: Just select a supported search engine.

Surf on the suggestion way. Click on a suggestion to use it for the following preview.

Use filters. Clarify the preview by using filters. There exist filters for many annoying sites.

Handsome and sleek appearance. It’s handling feels intuitive and smooth. That’s how Firefox can look.

Developer: Jan Bolz and Daniel Sache

nice idea but, say i type in “vertigo”, it gives me a suggested list. i click on vertigo add on for firefox and all i get is a google search page for the word vertigo. should it not go to the url i clicked?

the peers preferences at the bottom of the window also gives me the same search page. so not working for me at all.

oops forgot, also the icons and the text for each link are overlapped.

and the lag time between typing the search and the window appearing is a bit annoying. i guess this is the script at work searching?

it’s sounds like a bad interaction with another extensions. try to disable some.
please use the feedback link in the about window to send a list of your installed plugins. also include a screenshot. thanks.

ok i turned off half my extensions. doesnt seem to have made a difference. still get the same errors.

these are the remaining extensions still switched on:

this is the peers window when searching for “vertigo” - you can see the overlapping:

and this is what i get no matter where i click in the peers list. i click any link or peers preferences and this is all i get:

this is the peers window when searching (takes 5 secs to appear once i type the word) - you can see the overlapping here:

Just send an feedback email via the about window of the Peers extension. There you can put your screenshots. We appreciate your bug report but you don’t help us that way. Don’t trash the comments like this. Thanks.

Version 0.5.2 of Peers don’t cooperate with Version 0.49 of the Tab Mix Plus extension. The actual version of Tab Mix Plus is supported.
