I had been using Executor and am switching to FARR.  Much more powerful, thanks!

Here are my requests/suggestions:

1) I would like to keep the search bar visible on the desktop and located at the bottom of the screen just above the taskbar.  Unfortunately, with every search, it moves up to the middle and stays there.  This leads to:

2) Allow the results list to popup above the search bar instead of only below.  I would guess either an option to specify which direction or automatically based on room available on the screen.  I think this would then allow leaving the bar at the bottom of the screen.  Maybe an option to lock its position (prevent dragging).

3) With full path displayed as one of the columns, it would be most convenient to have a "hint" popup when hovering the mouse pointer over the field when the text is truncated.

Thanks for your consideration and great work.

Perhaps phitsc's FarrMultiMonitor plugin could be extended to do something appropriate -- it currently can handle centering.

I don't have any relevant ideas about the other points :)
