- Rated 2 out of 5by Proft, 5 years agoWhat's the point of finding duplicates if you can't go through the list and choose which ones to delete?
I've got 8200+ bookmarks and the "broken" bookmark detector has been running for over 10 minutes with absolutely no progress indication.
There are other, more feature-rich bookmark managers out there...uninstalling this add-on.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoSorry, but I would never give bad reviews without contacting the developer about possible problems. I have more than 5,000 bookmarks and the add-on works for me.
And you can see the features of the add-on in the description and in the screenshots here on addons.mozilla.org. So I can't see where there should be a potential for surprises regarding features. If you have a feature request, please open a ticket on GitHub.
So it does NOT MAKE SENSE AT ALL to say "There are other, more feature-rich bookmark managers out there" because it does not make sense to install add-ons if you already know that the add-on is not what you want.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 12849453, 5 years agoIm not singling this addon out, literally every "book mark cleaner/organiser" that says it can detect dead pages fails in my experience.
Out of 1945 bookmarks it flagged 628 as warnings, and 10 errors. So, as with every bookmark checker/organiser ive tried I went through and checked manually...kinda defeating the purpose, and found 1 dead link
In this day and age with so many dynamically generated pages, im guessing we cant really expect anything to be 100%, but this was way off. I noticed almost all the warnings URLs were wanting to merely correct http:// to https://, is this really worth alarming a user with a huge number for...I don't think so. The remote website will switch to https:// automatically in most cases anyways. If people are that worried they should install https everywhere....
Post dev feedback reply:
You can mark my review as "invalid feedback - read the description before installing an add-on" all you like, my feedback is valid, and it stands.
And to quote you: "And you can read in the add-on's description that it's a feature of the add-on"
Show me where in the description it says it will want to redirect all http:// sites to https:// ....madness as most links are going to be http:// by default and should be left alone. Certainly no reason to mark them as "warnings" and want to tamper with them.
Developer responseposted 5 years agohttp->https redirects are marked as warnings and not as errors, so I don't get your point. That's a FEATURE not a BUG. I know that a lot of users WANT to correct redirects. There was a long beta phase before the official release and there are more than enough users loving this feature. And you can read in the add-on's description that it's a feature of the add-on. If you don't want to see the redirect, you can hide these with ONE CLICK. So you have no reason to complain because of this feature.
- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13056615, 6 years agoI use it to scan my 4182 bookmarks for broken link.
In Firefox 53, it is extremely slow and only scan around 3158 in 24 hours.
I force close it and test it on Firefox 55. The scan is extremely fast. It complete 4082 within 5 minutes and up to 4181 within 15 minutes. However, it stop on 4181 and never end. I am waiting for it about 3 hours. The process manager show it is using around 2-10% CPU.
Is this extension can be worked on large amount of bookmarks.
