We're happy to report that we've officially integrated Live Search into Firefox by popular demand.
The Live Search add-on for Firefox gives you auto-suggestions from Live Search right in the browser while you're typing your query. For example, start to type "Bruce Springsteen" into the Live Search box, and you're shown relevant suggestions. The list of suggestions refreshes as you continue typing or when you change the query. You can click the suggestion that best matches what you were searching for to speed you to your results. The add-on is available in the following markets: Australia (AU), Canada (CA), India (IN), Ireland (IE), New Zealand (NZ), Philippines (PH), South Africa (ZA), United Kingdom (UK), and United States (US).
The Live Search add-on for Firefox is available to install at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10434. It's based on the Open Search standard and uses the JSON interface supported by Firefox to retrieve autosuggestions.
Enjoy speedier, easier searching, and let us know what you think!

Keep up the good work. I really think Live Search is reaching the tipping point where it may be able to take share from other search engines. At this point, I think Live Search requires a few more killer points of differentiation (i.e. data visualization from publically available databases) and some great marketing to really tell the story of why people should try Live Search.
Again, great work...keep it up!!
Do you plan a french version (FR) for this add-on ?
Finally, I can use Live Search in Firefox.
How come an add-in is required? Yahoo and Google don't require plugins.
Glad to see someone's actually around to talk. I already was made aware of:
All Cashback issues are being handled by the Cashback customer service team. Their contact information is listed in the corresponding posts. You can find additional answers on their support site at https://support.search.live.com. Or you can fill out the necessary information on the online form and someone will be in touch with you. https://support.search.live.com/eform.aspx?productKey=cashbackso&ct=eformcs
in another thread. However, other than the obligatory someone will be back to you email (but never does), the cashback problems continue to mount without the company being responsible enough to address them. Are there other avenues of contact? How in the world do you expect to grow your market share if you continue to alienate an ever growing segment of what was your customer base? Word of mouth is starting to get pretty heavy on the negs, and is near as I can discern it has everything to do with (the lack of) customer service.
@LiamK - Sorry to hear you are still having response issues. If you want to provide the ticket number that was sent back to you when you submitted your request on the support site above I will try to forward to the appropriate team.
This search plugin would not install for me until I manually removed livecom.png and livecom.src from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins". I had an old version of the live.com search plugin installed and removing it via the UI did not do the trick.
@Phil - We are evaluating other markets where we can ship this feature
@Sam -You don't need add-ons for Yahoo and Google as they are distributed with Firefox, where as Live Search is not
@James - When you select Manage Search Engines from the drop down beside the Firefox search box, you get the Manage Search Engines List window. You can then remove the old version from that window.
hello if someone is monitering this board could you let the people over at the live search mobile board know they're really ticking people off and sending alot of people to google by refusing to respond to their board. thank you
Please do not repeat what google does
if google works fine, why do we have to test yours
however feature request can u add something like this
i call it word map, this somehow wrong example, but u should get idea
food --> country
--> pasta --> pizza --> cheese
say search in word map
i can navigate to any other query that correlated with
it can be on ui with picture
so when user mouse over other query, they another query that related
any other ui for quick selection,
no2, not something like that comboBox
its more like a grid, then when u can select it with number or the first letter
Good stuff. Thanks and greetings!
So all comments on this board is done my microsoft employees. OK. look guys.. your Live Search is crap as compared to Google. Firefox come default with Google and even some website which forces to use IE , I change live search to Google default.. we dont need your live search crap, please donate that live search budget money to Linux.. so humanity can see microsoft in positive light.
I also have been having problems with the Live.com Cashback program. I have been waiting now for 5 months and still not received the Cashback. Some how my live.com account was deleted and their is no way to log into that account and click the Cashback icon so Microsoft can deposit the money into my Paypal account. I even have all the original emails Live.com sent me and the Ebay files that show as proof I used the Cashback program. If anyone knows a telephone number I can call I would appreciate. Thanks
