I installed Conquery within a 0.6 FB version & it worked fine. After upgrading last night to 0.8 using the latest nightly build, Conguery has stopped working. None of the search engine plug ins which I have installed appear in the Conquery drop down menu.

When I open the Searchplugins folder in the Moz FB program folder I do see the installed plug ins. But it appears that Windows doesn't know what types of files they are. When I click on the .src files, I get an error saying Windows doesn't know how to open them. Each .src file has an accompanying .gif file. I wonder whether the installed plug ins are in the wrong folder or whether there's an incompatibility between my profile and the location of the plug ins or something else is amiss?

Hmm.. Tested with:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firebird/nightly/2004-01-31-09-0.8/
Everything works fine!
Richard, have you installed 0.8 in a different dir than 0.6? If so, try the following:
1. Clear the "Query plugins directory" text field in ConQuery config;
2. Push "Save prefs" and then "Ok". ConQuery will try to tetermine that search plugins dir automaticly;
3. Try "Query to.." context menu - queries should appear.
I'll implement "reset prefs to default" func in the next reliase.

Great extension, really puts the power of searching at your fingetips (as opposed to the upper end of the browser window).

I have one question tho, would it be possible to use the icons from the search plugins in the context menu?

Good idea! Personally I prefer more "ascetic" view of context menu, but I'll try to implement this as configurable feature in the next release.

When trying to do a query, I get the error:

ConQuery failed:

TypeError: frm.submit is not a function

Uh, is there something missing from my system? Help. please.

Guess, you are running ConQuery on FF 0.8+ huh?
I'll post bugfix when CVS will up, until then you can patch ConQuery at conquery.js
line 165 should be:
var frm = doc.createElementNS("http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml", "form");
and line 176:
var inp = doc.createElementNS("http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml", "input");

Ok, thanks for a really useful program. Works now.

Yes, I'm running a nightly build of Firebird/fox from
two days ago. I couldn't find conquery.js -- would
I have to look inside conquery.jar? And
http://downloads.mozdev.org/conquery/conquery091.xpi
wasn't there. But anyhow, .../conquery.xpi was there, and I installed that.

I would love to use your engine instead of the normal search engine, because it's much more powerful. I need "method=POST" for many sites and the normal search engine only offers "method=GET". Do you think it is possible to replace the engine with yours?

I believe that default queryCharset should be current page's charset - not UTF-8 because if one passes selection to some service then he needs it to be URLencoded properly.

BTW, why don't you use Bugzilla for the project - I'll submit all bugs that I'll find and will help if it's in my powers.

RRRReeeam!!!
The restriction on moving plugins to a Userette-chosen folder means that plugins remain in the ..\mozilla\ folder . . . but said folder gets deleted when a new version of Mozilla is installed, thusly clobbering all ConQuery plugins. Knock your self out MANUALLY excising the plugins folder--IF you happen to remember--before every Mozilla update, or hunting for plugins every Moz upgrage.
Does it take rocket science to find the $USERETTE_PROFILES folder and put the dern Userette controlled files, settings, customizations, there?

PARSE ERROR

I downloaded conquery today and stumbled into what seems a bug rightaway.

I have 7 search engines installed. In conquery I see only 5 of them, then a parse error.
What I do not see is Leo EngGer and Leo FrnAmd.

The popup for the error message reads
"FileRead error in cqReadFile
Component returned failure code ... location "JS Frame: chrome://conquery/content/main.js :: cqReadFile line 335 Data: no"

I have installed all my searches through the mozilla homepage. I do not know XUL or mycroft, perhaps you could look into this?
(I think it's a problem with one of the two LEO searches)

[23] Submitted by: McV on Monday 6th September 2004 at 06:20 -0400

Yes, you right. The problem is in Leo plugins and ConQuery parser. ConQuery does not accept < > symbols in <SEARCH> tag parameters of plugins due to regexp nature of parser. Leo's plugins (leo.src and leofrn.src) has this incorrect (from ConQuery point of view) lines:
name="Leo Frn<->Amd"
To correct this, open plugin files in any text editor (usually this files are located in /mozilla_dir/searchplugins/), remove all < and > form " ", and save changes. Now plugins should work normally.

can you change the order of search plugins in conquery, or must they stay alphabetical? i'd really like to arrange them so that the ones i use the most are at the top.

also, can you put the search plugins in the main context menu list instead of the "query to..." submenu? i've tried the "Menu Editor 1.0" extension, but it only shows up as "qc-menu".

thanks for the help, and i can be contacted at:

Awesome extension! Look for a mention of it in an upcoming book by O'Reilly.

Question: I've got some conquery preferences in my prefs.js, and they look malformed because the single backslash from my Windows filepath got stripped. For example:

user_pref("conquery.Entries.CPROGRA~1MOZILL~3searchpluginsgooglesrc.Title", "Google");

Are these still used? There are only entries for a couple of plugins, and they still seem to work fine.

From MozillaMail it can be done (MM is integrated with browser), but I disabled it because ConQuery works with "mail instance" in general. So, POST plugins just turns to GET while executing. I will keep an eye on TB development to implement POST if there'll be a chance...

Well, what you see in prefs.conquery thread is just plugin's UIDs, constracted from filepath by simply stripping dots and slashes :)
The point is that when you grab files from dir with subdirs, there is nothing that can identify that items unequally exept their paths. So it is used as a KEY in prefs and internal objects..

How do I uninstall a plugin? I can uncheck "Show", but how do I remove it altogether? For instance, suppose I want to remove Translate.ru altogether (because I want to translate, say, between French and English, not Russian and X) - how can I do that?

Strange.. Usually, locale for extensions is picked up by browser on startup, according to value of "general.useragent.locale" preference. But if extension doesn't have choosed locale, browser uses default one.
It seems like your FX, being fr-FR thinks that his default language is de-DE. Try to search FX support forums for "default locale" or simply change "general.useragent.locale" to en-US.

Also, note this not fixed yet FX bug:

On mac OsX, the searchplugins directory is in Firefox.app bumble. Hence, the extension is unable to find it.

And it is also impossible to install new search plugins there.

The solution is to configure Conquery (using the prefrence pane) to use another directory and to move all the plugins from /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/searchplugins/*
to this new directory (for example: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/searchplugins/).

New plugins will also have to be saaved there.

Great extension! Got a plugin up and working in just a few minutes.

I had a problem with the Configure ConQuery window though. The are two links, "Get more plugin" under Conqueries and "Intergrate with other extensions" under Peferences which attempt to open their respected URLs but they opened over the dialog window due to Tabbrowser Extension settings. I replaced the window.open() with window.opener.open() in conquery-pref.xul which seemed to work much better. This might solve the Tools>Configure ConQuery menu option not working problem for some too.

I'm using ConQuery 1.5.1 and Tabbrowser Extension 1.12.2004122601 on Windows 98.

Hope this helps it's a great extension.

Hi,
This is very useful.
I look forward for a plugin for www.imdb.com which many users use frequently (or movie buffs like me do)..
To search a movie, just a single query is enough, so it will be great, if you can let me know how to build one.

oops! Well atleast it didn't eat it like that other post above. Did not think it would quote it literally though.

Any way Dormant ... replace all the &lt; with "less than" sign (on keyboard above comma) and all the &gt; with "greater than" sign (on keyboard above period) and drop it in the /FIREFOX/searchplugins folder as a .cqr file.

... or just wait for it to be published like you were doing.

I've been looking for a flexible search extension that also selectively highlights search terms once found.
Your extension is the best yet at being flexible, and I like it a lot. Would you consider adding highlighting for a future version? Often, this is valuable to complete a search effectively.
Thanks again for this very useful addition to ff.

I can use the UK specific version of Google by specifying meta=cr%3DcountryUK%7CcountryGB as part of the search string. The Mycroft plugin for GoogleUK acts correctly in the Firefox search box but ConQuery seems to insert a spurious '25' after the '%', generating the substring meta=cr%253DcountryUK%257CcountryGB, so fooling Google.

Any ideas?

Otherwise, a great extension.

Awesome plugin. I have already configured it to simplify considerably my ability to read German texts on the Web by translating individual words using two dictionaries -- dict.tu-chemnitz.de and dict.leo.org.

Some questions, minor issues--

There probably isn't a simple fix for this, but text encoding doesn't seem to transfer well (and this may only be because of the German site I'm using to read German novels, gutenberg.spiegel.de, or my own settings). German characters such as umlauts and the "?" show up on the dictionary site as either nothing, or some jumble of something or other. (not that I realistiacally expect anyone to bother with this one.)

I tried mortimer's suggestion about relocating the searchplugins folder on Mac OS X, it doesn't seem to do anything. None of the plugins seem to be installing, at all. I must be doing something wrong, any suggestions appreciated.

I used the altavista bablefish plugin and altered it into this one for freetranslation.com which is sometimes better for translating pages.

It works good for the urls. I just cant figure out how to get rid of the selected text option and the blank text box. Anyone wanna give it a try?

Also, I tried the google image search plugin below but every image I use it on from the search results page pops up an alert saying "the URL is not valid and cannot be loaded" Any help on that?

Thanks, and thanks to the dev of conquery!
