- by maverick, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I liked a lot of the idea of having an auto-hide bookmarks bar. I give the addon 5 stars for that.
However, in Firefox's native Bookmarks Toolbar, if you have folders in it, you can press the mouse's middle-button on a folder and it will open all the bookmaks in it at once! (it's like a shortcut for the "Open All in Tabs" option that is shown at the bottom when one left-click's a folder)
The absence of this "shortcut" keeps me from using it! But i'll keep an eye on BookmarksDropDown hoping for this feature.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThis addon provides the following: Ctrl-Click on a Folder will open all the contained bookmarks, each in a new Tab
UPDATE (2018.01.11) Middle-Click functionality added:
* Folder Middle-Click opens all contained bookmarks.
* Bookmark Middle-Click opens page and keeps menu showing.
Thanks for the suggestions.
- by Firefox user 13472878, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This add-on is very usefull. I used Roomy Bookarks Toolbar on Firefox 56 but it doesn't work on 57.
Bookmarks Drop Down works fine on FF57 and does what's expected. It allows to have a lot of bookmarks on one click.
At this time, it's not perfect but stil very good.
I'll try a few suggestions:
- you should implement a larger delay before it hides (in the options): when you have sub-sub-sub folders it's easy to get your mouse out of the menu and you can start all over again.
- maybe an option for favicon (and even a second option to change the favicon)
- maybe a little line between the sub-sub menus; It'd help reading on the screen
An information for the developers: sometimes, on some sites, it just doesn't work. And sometimes, it remains on the screen so you can't read what you want. But still, it's a good idea, well developed and that can be improved.
48 hours after this comment I've had the real pleasure of realizing that two suggestions are already implemented: now we have a second colour for the sub-menus, it can be changed in the options. With the hiding delay, now you can get out of the menu (and come back quickly) it really helps.
That's really a pity that nothing can be done about favicons, but it's a limit of webextension. Nothing to do with the developer. It was a good job, now it's even better
Once again, a suggestion. On some sites, for unknow reasons, the menu doesn't hide. It's probably caused by scripts. So maybe a button on the menu itself could help hiding.... If possible
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThanks for the positive review.
I will of course look into suggestions.
One note, however: WebExtension addons no longer have access to favicons.
Update (1/3/18) - Favicons Now Optionally Dispayed.
