Ever seen websites whose drop-down menu has so many things and all in the wrong order that you cannot sift through it?

Or you want to search for a word in the middle of the phrase in the drop-down menu?

This extension allows you to do that easily by first clicking on a drop-down menu, then click on the toolbar icon to activate the search function.

You can filter by any, or all, of the following: contains not contains begins with ends with doesn't begin with doesn't end with

This extension only loads when you click on the toolbar icon and cleans up when the popup panel is hidden, therefore ensuring minimal use of your system resources! This extension also does not ask for any permissions, so your safety is preserved!

User reviews
This extension does work, but it would be even more helpful if a hotkey and saved searches could be added for quickly. For my use we have a company site with dropdowns for specific line items we have to use, they are sudo ordered in categories, but with about 500 items selecting the first letter does not work. I often need to enter an item from the list, save and repeat for the same items multiple times in a session, having to click the extension and enter my search (which is often the same few items), then go back to the dropdown is time consuming. Otherwise great extension, but will continue looking for one that better suits my needs

As part of work there is an application I make for clients on a regular basis, one of them has my office listed in a combo box and it isn't aphabetically ordered. None of our team can ever find it, I thought I'd google to see if such a tool exists and behold I came across this and tested it on the very application I would normally fill with clients and it isolated the option out of the list, removing all other entries making it super easy! Thank you so much to the developer, you have made my job a little bit less stressful.

It seems to work on regular web pages, but I needed it for Salesforce, because there are so many drop down menus everywhere. But this doesn't work in Salesforce Lightning probably because so much of the page contents are buried in shadow DOM elements and iframes.
