This was the longest & most used add on of any that I have had. I used it all the time with FF & I will miss it. I would save my sites to desktop with simple right click, & put in directories such as this example: - looking for a hard drive so put all urls for reviews & sales sites on the desktop later moved to premade dir named "Electronics " to refer to when time to purchase. Worked simply & effectively for years. FF informed me it is legacy and removed it. I want it back!
You may find a replacement, when you search for "QuickCut".
Great extension, but not compatible with Firefox Quantum and there's no alternative. I don't think it will be updated, but it should be.
Hello developer, is there any possibility of a update for this extension.
I love the function it provides, but it doesn't work on the latest Firefox.
Been using it for years
Please please update it :)
Did a needed job & did it very well
Anyone know a of replacement since FF 57 came out?
An addon I cannot live without. Since it is not compatible with Firefox Quantum I reverted back to the older version of Firefox as I cannot find a compatible addon.
Have used dskCut for many years, missing it TERRIBLY on Firefox Quantum ! ! ! !
(From what I am reading about Quantum, appears the new Firefox engine won't allow some of the old extensions we loved. I hope dskCut's creator. Evan Eveland. will be able to pull it off for us. If so, Evan, thank you so much in advance!)
This is an invaluable add-on and I hope the author or SOMEONE will update it for Firefox Quantum.
Great add-on. Does what's needed.
For those having both deskCut and SaveLink : do not enable SaveLink otherwise deskCut doesn't work.
Maybe someone knows how-to : instead of having to do a right-click, I would like to have a toolbar-button for deskCut
It needs a small settings change to work. Once that's done, it works great. Follow this link for settings change.
At first glance, working with it is very easy. Used it for a while. Does anybody know if there are similar "shortcut" addons providing similar capabilities? I just want to compare them that is all.
Used it as a workaround because Evernote Web Clipper is astonishingly crash-prone -- set up automatic import from a folder on my machine, pointed deskCut to it, and wham bam, bookmark clipping workaround. Not as good as if Web Clipper actually worked, but this ACTUALLY WORKS. Awesome.
And yet still working like a champ, after all these years. Main problem being I cannot be 100% sure it´s not causing any undetected performance issues with e10s, which is why I have to take a star out of it. Otherwise, great.
Deskcut couldn't possibly be easier and more straightforward to use!! It works perfectly!!
I have saves on desktop only with "Prompt for Path" (in preferences).
(Firefox 46.01 portableapps)
Great add-on. Does just what I want it to do, and with the options I need. Have used it for years, and am so glad it's still active. I just updated to Firefox 45, and for the first time ever Deskcut stopped working. Fortunately just uninstalling and reinstalling Deskcut had it working again in less than a minute.
Works great! Would like an option to use a keyboard shortcut rather than have to right click - select. Thanks for your work!
This add-on is completely useless.Doesn't work. I need to look for something else to help me create desktop icons.
is it possible to set/change the name and directory of a shortcut we create with this addon? (in pop-up window, not by going to the dir. and renaming the link...)
Great little extension! I've tried more recent ones, since Deskcut has stopped being developed, but for one reason or another, always end up having to default to it.
Only bug i have to report will probably affect very few people using it: the save path does not support special characters like ñ or ö (etc). Deskcut will always convert those characters to a different setting and create a folder elsewhere (eg: "C:\Désktop" becomes "C:\DÃ©sktop").
If you absolutely need to use that specific folder, you can circumvent this issue by creating a junction in windows using mklink on an elevated command prompt: "mklink /j C:\DÃ©sktop C:\Désktop" - basically fooling Deskcut into assuming that shortcut you just created is an actual folder.
This seems to not work on Windows. I think what this does is create a file on desktop, and when you click it, it opens the website?
The error I get when I click on "create deskcut" from context menu is:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsILocalFile.initWithPath] deskcut.js:931:0
should be a native function of Firefox (hello, Mozilla?).
BUT: Please, please, please, dear author, finally implement a keyboard shortcut to create the deskcut even faster...
I had a problem in one profile, where it wasn't working.
I used the Option to 'Prompt for Path', and 'Remember' the Path.
It was working fine, with that extra step - saving to my Desktop.
After saving deskCuts to my Desktop a couple of times I went back to using Find, which shows my Desktop folder - and it still works.
