Finds stuff way faster than going to the site - then pops open a Safari window that attempts to redirect and then gets an error message about something being null.

This happens for every country with every product.

I'm in the US and don't even speak German, and I can get results from .de easily by hitting the "i" and selecting your country's flag.

Version info shows 1.0 even though link says 1.2, is this really the correct version?

You may have accidently forgotten to delete the old version of Fast Amazon Widget. Get something like Widget Manager [ http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/17990 ] to disable and delete the old version before installing the new version. This has worked for me with many widgets, and so far its the easiest way I know to get things working...

I just downloaded Fast_Amazon-1p2f.zip and the widget inside shows version 1.0 when you click the info icon in the widget. It also still doesn't let me click on a link to open the appropriate Amazon page in Firefox.

In version 1.1 I can no longer click the search results to open products in my web browser (Firefox). When I try to click on a link, it just opens a blank page in the web browser. This worked correctly in the previous version.

To the developer: PLEASE ADD SCROLL SUPPORT! :)

Other than this minor nuance, Fast Amazon is a splendid little widget that integrates perfectly with the world's largest online shopping center.

Totally rockin. Book thumbs and descriptions show right there in the Widget. I've bought a book with it already. Faster and easier than the regular web interface. Very convenient.

I said "support for international stores coming soon" - I know this is an inconvenience and I apologize, but I think that I did point out that this is a *beta* release and that when it is fully functional it will support more than just Amazon US!
