Best bookmark experience, I've had – with room for improvement Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

I've just changed to FF from Chrome and browsed the add-ons, and this one is one of my favorites. I've been searching for something like this in Chrome for years, and nothing really compares. I mean, it's not really that good looking, but it's acceptable, and the features are amazing.

However, offhand there are two main features, I miss:

- An option to apply a custom wallpaper. The grey one is acceptable, but a bit too dark for my liking. The patterned ones are downright ugly.

- An option to open all bookmarks in a folder. That would make the add-on a brilliant session manager.

- Being able to drag bookmarks into folders as well as drag/edit several ones at the same time and also an option to sort bookmarks and folders differently and maybe a little facelift to the interface or just some more customization options, so we can do it ourselves, would be much appreciated as well, but those are not as important as the first two ones, I think.

With all these features included as well as the great ones already there, this add-on could be one of the very best I've had. Maybe top 3. It's already really good though.

Basic features missed Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

1) It is missed to move a bookmark to a folder using drag and drop.
2) List view with or not details (enable to customize columns shown),
3) icons smallers , 32 and 16 pixels
4) Empty Trash command.

I don't use it for bookmarks Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

I use it for the history, and I love it.

I really wish it had a way to change to a custom background, included ones are pretty bad.

Found a temporary Solution Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

Hi all,

I have found that if you put the url that is in ViewMarks for example....about:viewmarks?folder=3 straight into the Firefox Homepage url section, Firefox will open the ViewMarks homepage of your choice rather than a Firefox Homepage...

Only drawback with this is that you don't have a homepage to go to temporarily as pressing on the home page button in Firefox brings you always back to the ViewMarks folders that you have chosen, this is of course until Michael hopefully fixes this add-on to work with the changes made in Firefox 41.0.

P.S. Have found a new add-on that will let this function correctly once installed in FF 41.0...

It's called CUSTOM NEW TAB 3.0

hope this helps....

Doesn't work for me. I see zero thumbnails. Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I was super excited to use this extension only to find that NONE of the thumbnails are showing up. I only get folder or "globe" icons so this is really useless and frustrating.

And yes, I already ticked the box with the automatically fetch thumbnails option so that's not the problem.

Very, very nice indeed Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

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 Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

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! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

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 Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

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 Fix

worked on linux but how about mac? Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

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?

error Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Today I have error:
TypeError: String.quote is not a function

As I see here
String.quote obsolete since Gecko 37 (Firefox 37 / Thunderbird 37 / SeaMonkey 2.34)

I have replaced strings in viewmark.js like this:
with this:

Here is fixed viewmark.js:

I have emailed Michael Koch more than week ago, but didn't receive response.


Viewmarks localization:

For example, adding Russian language (ru-RU):
Step 1:
in file:

after lines:
locale viewmarks en-US chrome/locale/en-US/
locale viewmarks de-DE chrome/locale/de-DE/

add line:
locale viewmarks ru-RU chrome/locale/ru-RU/
Step 2:
in file:

after lines:
<em:description>Vorschaubilder für Lesezeichen</em:description>

<em:description>Browse your bookmarks visually</em:description>

add lines:

<em:description>Ваши визуальные закладки</em:description>
Step 3:
in folder
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.

Really good but I'm missing something ... Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

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!

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。
