Firefox Add-On Inquisitor

Inquisitor 1.0.2

Inquisitor 1.0.2 is a pretty little add-on that spruces up your Firefox Search Box (similar to Glims for Safari). It’s fairly quick. However, it’s being developed by Yahoo! and even though it gives you the option to use Google as the default search engine it doesn’t respect that choice in the context menu. If you select a word or phrase and right-click, it will show you “Search for ____” but ultimately will bring you to Yahoo! search page. This seems like a bug.  At the very least, it’s inconsiderate and possibly offensive to the very sensitive user who actually expects their preferences to be honoured.

The Search Box behaviour seems fine.
