Very, very nice indeed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love FF, but have struggled to manage my bookmarks (and folders) in a sane and easy manner.
ViewMarks comes to the rescue, and is a HUGE breath of fresh air and is a wonderfully intuitive way to manage bookmarks.
There are many thoughtful touches, such as the "suggested folder" (which works rather well most of the time), and the "create folder" icon shows up in all the right places. I think the developer has thought of just about everything.
The integration with FF is nearly perfect, making the ViewMarks feel just like a native part of the browser!
Many thanks to the developer for creating this delightful add-on!
Bugs (FF 38.0.5)
1) Setting the "visit bookmarks in background to fetch thumbnails" throws an error:
ReferenceError: ViewMarksUpdate is not defined
1) Add the ability to search for a folder when bookmarking.
2) Be able to resize the folder list (horizontally and vertically) to more easily find a folder
3) Offer some sort of "detail" view (as seen in Windows Explorer, for example.)
4) Be able to drop a bookmark (or a folder) onto a folder.
Bugs and suggestions Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Nice extension, but some things prevent me from using it...
- when you want to modify a bookmark, reload button doesn't work
- zoom buttons don't work either
- viewmarks should react to mouse-click the same way standard bookmarks work. For example, if I middle-click on a viewmark, it should open in the background
- middle-clicking a folder should open all its viewmarks in new tabs
- allow more customization: custom picture for the background, custom icons for the folders
- allow hiding of "special" folders
- allow folders to show *after* individual viewmarks (sorting options)
That's it for now :-p

Should be lighter (like chrome's enhanced native bookmark manager)
Nice! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Cool & easy! I like it. Just one thing would be nice to have: an option to change background and install custom image. Thanks.
P.S. On Russian OS ViewMarks is invisible in context menu. (empty line)
I really like this extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Please take the opportunity to display the icon of the site, folder "Mobile bookmarks" (it displays the bookmarks made in the mobile firefox) and line of search on the Internet. This extension spoils the appearance of extension Location Bar Enhancer. Please FixThis user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
worked on linux but how about mac? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Really thanks for links and suggestions, it worked great on my Ubuntu system. But when it comes to mac, I can't even localize the extensions folder containing viewmarks stuff. Any idea?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).

final steps Rated 5 out of 5 stars
hi Life artist....
What you need to do now is go into your viewmarks folder... mine is in the folder
in there you will find the file viewmakrs.js.....
once you see this file open it by clicking with your right mouse button and hit EDIT option....
now go to the link that NRR has posted and open this up and copy all the conent of that link by right clicking in the browser and select the option "SELECT ALL" and then "COPY"..
now go back to the EDITOR that you have open and select all the txt in that editor and delete it all and then hit paste with your right mouse button to copy all the content from the web browser into that editor file and then hit save...
you can then exit everything and all should be fine....
hope this helps
Although it would be easier for everyone if Michael Koch could release a quick update which includes this quick easy fix for everyone....
Who knows if he comes here to check the posts?
error Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Today I have error:
TypeError: String.quote is not a function
String.quote obsolete since Gecko 37 (Firefox 37 / Thunderbird 37 / SeaMonkey 2.34)
I have replaced strings in viewmark.js like this:
And extension is working now.
Here is fixed viewmark.js:
My folder where viewmark.js is placed:
I have emailed Michael Koch more than week ago, but didn't receive response.
For example, adding Russian language (ru-RU):
locale viewmarks en-US chrome/locale/en-US/
locale viewmarks de-DE chrome/locale/de-DE/
locale viewmarks ru-RU chrome/locale/ru-RU/
<em:description>Vorschaubilder für Lesezeichen</em:description>
<em:description>Browse your bookmarks visually</em:description>
<em:description>Ваши визуальные закладки</em:description>
Copy folder "en-US" to "ru-RU"
in this new folder "ru-RU" by modifying in files:
you can localize extension for your language

Great addon! If it can show bookmarks in list, I'll love it much more.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
Really good but something miss me.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Yes, it's a good addon with many interesting possibilities. But an improvement would be necessary for me: when I wrote my tags, I used to have clickable suggestions chosen from my existing tags, which is actually faster and instinctive. This possibility would make me add a fifth star! Thank you!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).

ブックマークを大きく、一度に見て、素早くアクセスできる Rated 5 out of 5 stars
ただし、設定の「Update」にある「Visit bookmarks at every xx seconds to fetch missing thumbnails」の設定には注意してください。設定した数字の秒数ごとにサムネイルを更新しようとしますので、英語の説明文にもあるとおり、環境によってはブラウザの動作が重くなったり、意図せずポップアップ・ウインドウが開く、音声が再生される、などの問題が起こる可能性があるようです。必要ないならオフにした方が良さそうですね。

Отличная замена стандартных быстрых закладок Rated 5 out of 5 stars
В отличае от стандартных 9-12 визуальных закладок, которые появляются в новой вкладке, ViewMarks показывает выбранную ветку стандартных закладок с папками, как файлы в файловом менеджере с удобной навигацией. Всё красиво, понятно и удобно.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
