    I would like to have an Firefox add-on that enables a permanent in site searchbar on top, maybe next to the Google searchbar.
    Normally you have to press CTRL+F to get that searchbar below, to search something on a site.
    But I would like to have a permanent one, on top.

    you know you can just type something anywhere on the page and it will enable the search?
    you need to have an option enabled though:
    in the "Advanced" options tab, in the "General" tab, check the second checkbox

    Didn't know that, thanks! I suppose that's quite a good fix for now.
    If anyone comes across an add-on like I described though, please share [​IMG]

    Costello's "fix" is better but if you really want most debuggers (stuff like firebug) have such a feature and you can turn them on for all pages too most of the time.

    It will take some serious screen real estate though.

    Which I totally don't have because I only have a 16 inch screen at my disposal.
    The Costello fix will do for now.
