If anyone's still following this thread: Hello. I do intend to update this add-on for Firefox 57 / WebExtensions, but it currently isn't possible. The clock is ticking. In 2 months Firefox 57 will be released, which realistically means that if Mozilla don't accommodate with relevant APIs in the next few weeks, this add-on is going to die. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you, although I will commit to doing what I can if they decide to pull their finger out.

not sure what you speak about but "context_search_webextension-0.9.2" performing like context search did before.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo ... al-search/
currently it has no icons.

but running chromium beside firefox pointed me to this

much nicer but currently not usable (converted) in firefox nightly

sorry.

Cool. I remember this extension.

Do you have a list of what missing API's are holding you up, along with bug numbers?
