Great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like this addon, I use it to bookmark conversations in forums a lot.

The only thing that is strange that it often selects the wrong bookmark, even if the correct one is in the list (which has the exact same title). Is this something that can be fixed?

Edit: never looked carefully at the options, my fault. It's working great now!

Try adding your forum's domain name to the "special domains" list in the addon preferences.

Хотелось бы еще возможность видеть адрес закладки при наведении курсора.

Works perfectly. I can't believe I managed to follow several webcomics without having this little jewel to assist me. Great work.

Change addressbar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Было бы интересно иметь опциональную возможность заменять "Звёздочку" в адресной строке на иконку кнопки. Или оставлять "Звёздочку", но чтобы клик мышкой по ней вызывал работу дополнения вместо стандартной функции Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.3.1-signed). 

Предположим, мы обрабатываем клики мышкой по звёздочке.

Если закладки, которые можно заменить, мы не нашли, что мы делаем? Как обычно, спрашиваем пользователя, не добавить ли новую, и если да, показываем неуклюжий диалог "Add Bookmark" в середине экрана?

1. Можно попытаться использовать диалог Edit Bookmark рядом со звёздочкой, эмулируя клик по ней. Пока не знаю, насколько это легко сделать.
2. Даже так, сейчас чтобы просто добавить страницу в закладки, пользователю нужно сделать всего один клик. А если обработку кликов на звёздочке делаем мы, это будет клик, движение мышью вниз и клик в другом месте. Особенно обидно, если юзер вообще не планировал действие "заменить закладку", и просто хотел добавить новую.

Restores the rightful definition of ‘bookmark’ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You’d think this is what ‘bookmark’ would mean. The whole entire purpose of bookmarks outside the context of computers is to allow you to keep track of your running position in some piece of media. Kinda makes me angry at whatever programmer came up with calling a permanently-positioned placeholder a 'bookmark'.

Bingo!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Found this and it's just what I was after. Great for updating to the latest 'read' page on forums etc, with just a single click. Couldn't find anything similar on Chrome, so it's Firefox all the way for me now. Brilliant, many thanks!!

Almost perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like quick replace feature, especially when watching a sequence of videos on youtube. So i can watch from where i've stopped before.

I'd just like to have a better New Bookmark interface. Instead of expanding bookmarked folders every time, to find my prefered one the addon could just remember last folder used for saving new bookmark.

It's a click too many every time i try to bookmark something.

> the addon could just remember last folder used for saving new bookmark

Sorry, I can't find a straightforward way to do this. So this will probably never happen.

FWIW, here's the bug describing the reasons for the default behavior is as it is: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=232089

You can also try Add Bookmark Here 2: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/add-bookmark-here-2/

It affects only the default Edit Bookmark panel, though, not the one used by this extension.

Helpful for webcomic junkies Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this addon is great for everybody who wants to update certain bookmarks regularly without having to delete the old ones.

This is especially useful if you read lots of webcomics or serial novels.
And the support is excellent, especially for a free piece of software thats written by a single guy!

Great addon. Works flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says - I like it. Here's a suggestions: If the list of bookmarks contains only one result, then this bookmark should be updated without showing the list at all. That way I can mark the last page on a webcoming with a single click.Could you please make this available as an option?

update: awesome - thank you very much!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2.1-signed). 

Added. See the version 1.5.0.

YES. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Updating bookmarks to things like the last-read-page of a webcomic was getting REALLY annoying, so this is AWESOME.

One thing that could make it even better [note this suggestion is all assuming you have "Keep the old name" checked by default].:

It would be really nice to be able to control which entry is automatically at the top of the list in the shift-alt-d "replace bookmark" window, because that entry is essentially the default (ie, you get it by just hitting enter).

If I could set it to be automatically alphabetized, I could just throw an "a" or whatever in front of the names of the bookmarks I update a LOT, and update them in just two strokes without having to think about selecting anything.


(btw, I was curious, so I played around with it a bit and discovered that the order now seems to be produced by the same mysterious process that orders bookmarks when I ctrl-shift-b to open the "library" window. I have no idea how THAT's determined, because it sure doesn't seem to be by any of the sorting options you can manually select [name, location, date added, etc].)


P.S. Add me to the list of people who agree this addon should be a default firefox feature. =D

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2.1-signed). 

The sorting function compares the bookmarks by the length of the biggest prefix common with the current URL, and in case it's the same, leaves those bookmarks sorted as they are in the Places database. By the time of creation, I guess.

So, this is great for some websites (like Fanfiction.net, where the story identifier is in the URL, and comes before the chapter number), and useless for others, like Youtube (URLs have random identifiers).

So, doing alphabetic sorting by default does not fit this scheme, but I can be persuaded to add special sorting functions for specific domains. For Youtube, for example, it will compare page titles instead of URLs.

I've really missed being able to update bookmarks... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, functional, no restart required, and it scratches an itch I've had for years, ever since I went from Avant browser to Firefox (the "update bookmark" and "bookmark sync" were what kept me from switching for a long time).

I'm so glad to have this functionality available to me again, and I agree with the others that this (or something like it) should be a default feature of Firefox.

Thank you for this!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.1.1-signed). 

great idea, should be part of the browser Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great, makes following web comics, etc. so easy.

Only request: it should remember whether I've checked the 'overwrite title' option between sessions. Generally I don't want to overwrite the tittle and having to recheck this each time is a pain. But oh so worth it compared to how things functioned before this extension!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.1.1-signed). 

Like you can see in one of replies below, there's an option to make the "keep title" checkbox default to true. Version 1.4.2 gets a settings page, so you can easily find it there.

Keeping track of its state between sessions is incompatible with what is being done now: saving the checkbox state separately for each bookmark the extension touched.

1.4 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice addon. Thank you for making it.

However, "Replace Bookmark" option does not show up when someone is not hiding Menu bar and is using Bookmarks dropdown menu. User is then forced to drag the "Replace Bookmark" button from customize menu to get the same functionality.

Edit for v1.4: Hiding Menu bar, clicking on Firefox button, expanding Bookmarks button, doesn't show "Replace Bookmark" option. Also, adding/removing "Bookmarks" button from Customize menu onto/from a bar, then exiting/restarting Firefox shows/hides the Replace Bookmark button (on both Bookmarks Menu and Bookmarks button menu).

Keep up the good work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.9.1-signed). 

No menu item in Firefox -> Bookmarks is to be expected. It's yet another menu that needs to be intentionally supported. Would you use it?

I can't reproduce the hiding problem. Could you write it step by step? Preferably here: https://github.com/dgutov/bmreplace/issues/new

I like it very much, well done. One suggestion: You could make the "Keep name" option default(able), as, for example, I always want to keep the name...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.9.1-signed). 

In version 1.4, you can add the configuration parameter "extensions.bmreplace.keep-title-default" in about:config.
Type: boolean, value: true.

Old Location, New Title Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is my favorite addon for manga and the like, what I'm hoping to get by writing this is when you click the button for something that's already bookmarked it gives you the usual message but what I want is a way for it replace the old title with the current one please.

Also is it possible to add the content from the tag meta.description when you replace a bookmark.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.9.1-signed). 

See version 1.4, for both requests.

Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Can be useful for reading and tracking progress in series of articles, webcomics, serial online fiction, etc."

Yes, I get this exactly for the purposes mentioned above.

Works great!
