- by Firefox user 14051802, 17 days agoRated 5 out of 5Beautiful, I knew the manual workaround, having to click the bookmark, but I wasn't expecting a literal loop of *each* bookmark, but it was done efficiently and actually without interrupting workflow. I'm writing this review as it's at 62%, and slowly seeing my bookmarks folder populate. Great solution for a niche but annoying problem.
- by Firefox user 10310639, 21 days agoRated 5 out of 5it's very strange that the 'the earth best browser' needs a user which writes an extension to handle Favicons as they should.
Does mozilla program so bad also in much more sensitive areas??
- by Firefox user 15555872, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5A great extension to compensate for a Firefox problem of not syncing or importing favicons. Took a couple of hours to go through about 7k sites. Very well thought out. There is a problem with the folder icon. The folder info from hovering over it is truncated to the size of the sidebar which means you can't tell what the folder is for long folder names. Even stretching the sidebar to its maximum width did not help.
One request I have is to create a log file of the problems, etc. that can be worked later. I had about 1600 problems that I did not have time to go through and fix. Once you leave Checkmarks that session is gone for good.
- by Firefox user 14649953, 4 months agoRated 3 out of 5Sorry but the instructions to are not even clear at all, so i can not even use it due to terrible instructions.
The instructions say:
"You find the extension in the drop-down menu of the bookmarks/history sidebar. (Ctrl/CMD + B toggles the sidebar)"
What do i press?? I cant find a "CMD" key on my keyboard? what does this mean?? do i need to hold down control + cmd + B? Or does it mean either ctrl or CMD + b? Either way i couldn't find CMD button so that never worked and when i tried just Cntrl + B that opened a side bar but there was nothing in that side bar that i could find that said anything like checkmarks.. love to use it but the instructions are so terrible i couldn't i tried for a half an hour.....
Ok After looking deeper I have actually figured this out and will give proper instructions to others having this issue, as i read through the comments and noticed others had issues getting it working as well but none of their instructions were clear enough for me either.
Here is good clear instructions that work:
1) Install checkmarks addon to firefox
2) Ensure you have the "menu bar" enabled in firefox. (To enable this menu bar right click on the "white space" around address bar ... a small menu will pop up and make sure you have a checkmark beside "menu bar")
3) On firefox browser Open View/sidebar/checkmarks this will open a sidebar on the left side of your screen
4) On the left of your screen directly under "checkmarks" is a little arrow facing right with a circle around it (also known as a play button) click the play button for it to refresh your icons 5 at a time.
5) optional: disable menu bar again if you want it off by doing exactly same thing as step 2 just this time uncheck "menu bar"
With proper instructions this addon is great but since I had to basically figure this all out on my own after wasting an hour + of my day
Fix the instructions, and this would be a great addon. Just such unclear instructions im surprised anyone could get this working.
- by Pascal, 5 months agoRated 4 out of 5Yeah thanks for that. Even I am not so absolutely excited about opening 3'200 Websites just to get the Favicons down and show it up for less then two days... Then the sync taking place and overwrite all the bookmarks with the favicons again..
My question is, why the heck Opera manage this without a big theater since ever and FF is not able to get this really annoying little problem solved...
Syncing from browser to browser is a daily task and using an extra add-on just to get the favicons back is more then annoying. Nothing against your add-on. I moved back to the old school bookmark import (just for FF as its's anyway not my main browser) upload and renew the bookmarks by a html file incl. the favicons .... :)
