A main reason for choosing and staying on with Firefox for over 12 years. Samfind bookmark tool bar is unique in the since that I have not found another even close to it. Please bring this back on. Ajith
Samfind Bookmarks Toolbar is my most valued Firefox extension.
If I can find it on another browser, then Firefox is toast as far as I'm concerned.
Samfind has made my internet experience personal. I am so sad to hear it is no longer supported by Firefox. It was why I was so loyal to Firefox
Of all the unported extensions, this one is maybe most preventing me from going Quantum. Any chance of a roll-over, or a replacement?
The reason for One (1) Star for this Add-On, is that it is NO LONGER a viable ADD ON for Mozilla Firefox browser. With the latest update to the Firefox browser, ALL OF A SUDDEN (i.e., without ANY warning, notice, etc.) the Samfind Bookmarks Bar has simply CEASED TO FUNCTION! It put the onus on users (so what else is new in the PC world) to start searching for reason(s) that this formerly GREAT Add-On has disappeared. I guess the Samfind developer(s) has/have decided that it isn't a worthwhile effort to update Samfind to continue offering it as an Add-On as Firefox evolves (so much for open source cool people.)
Sad, but true . . . BYE-BYE to Samfind . . . and hopefully some dedicated cool programmers/coders, heck, Open Source gurus will provide the community with an Add-On similar to this one . . .
I did loved it, but I am an orfan of this software.
Please, update it!
This toolbar looks like it will be of great use. After I installed it, a page appeared, "Before you get your hands dirty, please look at out FAQs". Well that page is no longer there. It refers you to their home page which looks like a simple portal. That's not a good start for new users.
I Love Samfind I find it so handy, but I find the most recent update frustrating.
1) Saving websites use to be just dragging the tab onto the bar and the website would be saved, now however you have to cut and paste the website and put it under location and name the website. That I absolutely hate!!!
2) The new tab does not open up next to the current tab your on it does all the way to the end, that is also an inconvenience.
I wish I had the old version back.
A great add -on to organize bookmarks . Very easy to use and tons of unique and beautiful icons to pick for each tab and for each sub-tabs. Beside the attractive icons you can also give your own custom name to each tab , so that you see beautiful colorful tabs with your choice icon on it which makes the Tabs and bookmarking a fun as well as easy to organize and recognize during quick launching of a new page, tab or switching from tab to tab or within the menu of each tab. It becomes so easy that you won't even need to read a bookmarked tab. You just look at the icon and you know what has been bookmarked. FOr example my main tabs are arranged in a row with beautiful icons named SEARCH , EMAILS, NEWS, BANKING, ACADEMICS, ENTERTAINMENT, ETC . and when I click on any of these main tabs , a menu opens and shows all the bookmarks which I have added under that specific tab. I know that most bookmark add-ons will have this feature , but I don't think those will have such a huge collection and options of beautiful icons relevant to each topic and subtopics within each tab . Also organizing is easy by just clicking and dragging each tab and can move it to the right , left , beginning or end or up and down. It cannot get any simpler easier than that . The best part is that even if you uninstall the Samfind Bookmark Bar for some reason and you want to recover all the bookmarks exactly placed and arranged in the same way as before uninstallation , you can do it just by logging in and the everything automatically comes to its place. All the hard work which might have done in choosing beautiful icons for each bookmarked tab does not go to waste and once you set it up , you will not only love it but will never like to work without this awesome toolbar.. It has a lot of potential with its highly customizable features including size of text, size of tabs , various options of arrangement e.g rows or columns, various colors, tons of high definition icons and much more . Thanks to Samfind
despues de muchos años de uso he encontrado que empieza a fallar y no veo actualizaciones. ya no se puede editar las etiquetas ni agregar mas paginas. al editar las etiquetas el boton de salvar y cerrar no lo cierra y se va a "social & utilities"
I have been using this add-on for years(?) & have NEVER had any issues with it! VERY ez to set up & use! I love that it is so easily customized, everything from renaming my topics & websites to choosing the background color of the tooIbar, font color & so much more. I actually prefer samfind to FFs' bookmark toolbar. EXcellent add-on, keep up the good work.
I am using samfind for several years but unfortunately my Persian titles has changed to question mark today? what has happened?
please look at here to better understanding
I've used this bookmark bar for years. However, when I got a new computer, I downloaded SF and put in some fake bookmarksin a test file just to see if it would work with Windows 8.1. Now, every time I try to delete or save or move a bookmark, the original test bookmark bar appears. I can replace the samfindlayout file manually, and it works until I try to manipulate the bookmarks again. I haven't been able to find out where the test file resides. Getting ready to download a new bookmark add on program.
I have been using samfind for a few years and I love the ability to manage hundreds of bookmarks by creating topical toolbars. I have a main bar, and then ones specific to topics of interest or projects that I'm working on. I also like the integrated ability to easily find icons for each website.
I've been using this toolbar since day one. I have it installed on all my devices, it's just so handy and compact. I am having this problem where the icons aren't showing up. It's recommending it an update but it's not working. So other than that, great add on!
I drive around town using visual landmarks. I surf my sites with the best presentation of website icons: Samfind's Side Sam
It is a very handy add-on when it works. There is a difficulty finding the server at times, so when the bugs are sorted out it will be very useful.
I love this bar. Everything I need is right where I can see it. I keep my favorite sites on this bar, and just use the normal bookmark bar for sites that I rarely use but would like to remember. I've tried other bars, but as of yet, this is the only one for me.
Google Buzz guys?? Really?? The Buzz has been dead and buried for years!
Furthermore, I don't want an extra search bar! I turned it off in the Settings, restarted Firefox, but it's still there....
Used it forever. Just finally updated to FF 32 from 28 and it appears the samfind toolbar no longer lets you dock on the bottom... which I really want. Other than that its AWESOME!
I used to like this, but it has an unaddressed bug, which renders it useless in the long run. "Icon and Text on hover" for the websites DOES NOT WORK. The majority of the bookmarks gets stuck in the drop-down menu at the end of the toolbar, while the bar itself remains half empty. I tried in vain to find a workaround, or to get advice from the addon's maker. Going on with icons only is increasingly confusing as their numbers grow by the day. This way the basic functionality of the addon -- i.e. quick orientation -- is lost, and its use becomes pointless.
Found Samfind while in college, once I hit grad school, it became a must have!! Now as a mental health professional it has become a need! Everything at a quick glance and a click, I just love it!!
Amended review.."Best Until"
Still great on Firefox. Apparently Comodo Ice Dragon is the problem.
Great Add-on, very customizable.
I have two simple suggestions that can make samfind Bookmarks Bar perfect :
1. Add an option to hide the non-removable add-on icon (button) in the far left of the bar.
2. Add an option to align bookmark icons to left, right or center of the bar.
I have being a heavy user of Samfind for quite some time now, and I find it indespencible!can not do without it. easy to use nice layouts superb options for customization e.t.c.
First Class Add-On!!
Many Thanks to the developers.
