Add to Search Bar Doesn't Work

Unread post by Marcus » 2019-05-04, 21:04

I don't know if this is specific to the Linux version (I'm on Xubuntu 18.04) but the add-on Add to Search Bar stopped working.
I only noticed now, so it could have been after any of the latest browser updates.
Anyone having it working?

Just as a side note, although it's a Palemoon specific extension it's not listed anymore on the PM add ons site.

Same problem with Win(7) apparently but since when ? usually i don't use the add-on and i'm using the unstable channel for several months now.

On some search boxes the add to search bar shows in the context menu but clicking it does nothing, like in Bing Maps.
