Recently discovered this fresh solution. It has nearly the same functionality plus some new features (engines icons in the main context menu is a hidden option, read description). Don't confuse with original Context Search.
I was happily using Shadow912's version in Firefox 8, but then I upgraded to Firefox 9 and the extension broke :( I couldn't live without it so I went ahead and fixed it :) You can get it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/976471/conquery-1.7.3-mod9.xpi I also made it possible to customize the query when right-clicking the search engine, just like when pressing Ctrl. Keep in mind that this version will only work on Firefox 9+
I found out that Shadow912's version can be used without change in Firefox 6 (and probably also in future versions) by using Mozilla's "Add-on Compatibility Reporter": https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-on-compatibility-reporter/ .
I use ConQuery in Thunderbird so that I don't have to copy/paste searches into Firefox. Shadow912's version for Firefox 5.0.* works with Thunderbird 5.0 if you hack the install.rdf file. Although I use this ConQuery in Thunderbird I do not use it in Firefox 5.0. Instead, I use Context Search (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search/) because it offers more or less the same functionality and is kept up to date by its developer. Anybody desiring the functionality of ConQuery without all the hassles should look to using Context Search.
OK, i'm ready to pay money to see this updated; Hi shadow912, lets us know how its going and if you need testers/programming assistance! Lets set up a ReConQuery dev group? Can we help by doing this for you and helping with docs/etc? Please see thread for current workarounds and URL for patched version of ConQuery on current versions of firefox.
Up till now, I managed with the mods, but since mod 4b12 stopped working recently, I'm lost. I think Conquery is the extension I've used the most since I'm using FF as my browser. I like it, I love it, I can't do without. If Conquery doesn't come back, I might as well switch to Google Chrome... Robin
OK all ConQuery (mod) users, I've been developing successor to ConQuery from scratch, named ReConQuery. But it is lightly developed now. Thus please be patient for a few weeks? months? I hope to going to release it in this summer.
Hi Shadow912, Glad to see that Conquery is alive and well, and working great here on FF 3.6.3 (running on Windows 7). Any chance of including a feature that Context Search has - which is the removal/hiding of the "Search for" on the context menu? As long as Conquery is installed, having it also present on the context menu is merely adding clutter to the menu. ;-)
Thank you for breathing new life into this extension/add-on.
Thanks to Shadow912 for caring! Please continue! Firefox 3.5 is releleased, modb7 doesn't work anymore. Just bumped the extension to Firefox 3.5, seems to work. Download hier: http://www.file-upload.net/download-1738675/conquery-1.7.3-mod4b7bump3.5.xpi.html
