Firefox Browser : Search own Addons, Extensions on about:addons
Hi. [Features Request] I have some more Addons :) And no, i do not want to unistall unused. Often i switch Addons and turn them off and on depending on site. I do not want to learn all addons by name, so how can i find them quickly by searching?
On other Browser like Chrome you can find addons by searching them locally. STRG+F has no use on about:addons in Firefox. Why?
Why there is a search field to search online jumping to addons.mozilla.org ?? Here there could be only a button to go online. A local search field for local addons is much more useful.
The possible search function should also find and show parts of the names of addons and not only the correct beginning letters.
Thank you :)
ps: Where can i make Firefox Features Requests?
The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.
If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.
The Add-ons team has a forum so you could consider posting there as well:
Meanwhile, if you just want to search in the titles of extensions for information/reference, they are listed on the Troubleshooting Information page. Either:
- "3-bar" menu button > "?" Help > Troubleshooting Information
- (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
- type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter
