- by emmadaiou28, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5I use Diigo mainly for simple bookmarking and tagging functions. The 'redesign' of the extension has made it nearly unusable even for that, and the add-on seems broken at times.
1) The sidebar was the most useful thing about it, and that's now gone. The only way to access bookmarks is to actually go to the website, making the add-on largely pointless (for my purposes) other than as a shortcut to create or edit bookmarks.
2) Just now, I had to bookmark and tag the same page FOUR TIMES, because every time I clicked 'save' it brought up a pop-up ad about upgrading to a paid Diigo feature (a feature unrelated to what I was currently doing, fyi). When I dismissed the pop-up, it obviously canceled the bookmark save function along with it each time. (This was using the keyboard shortcut to save a bookmark. I ultimately had to do it by selecting the function from the toolbar icon menu instead, which did not prompt the pop-up upon saving.)
3) When a page is bookmarked, a little bar shows in the top right corner with (theoretically) tools for annotation and whatnot. Only most of the time that bar is completely blank (broken). There is no way to dismiss it, but it often ends up blocking important parts of a webpage (such as a logout link).

- by Levitation Edge, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5diigo is the best annotation tool (!for team knowledge sharing specifically!) we've come across after evaluating many extensions both for Chrome & Fox. They make a distinction worth paying attn to on their website - look at how long they've "been in the game" compared to other such apps & services. It may not have all the shiny bells and whistles, but it's a powerhouse of productivity underneath if you dig in.
- by Firefox user 13694245, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Just wanted to say that you guys are doing a great job. I just spent countless hours trying to develop a new personal & professional workflow for knowledge management when it comes to the web and after a healthy fight with pocket, evernote, instapaper, feedly, and a few others... I am going to position Diigo as the center of my knowledge management universe -- "the bucket" that captures everything.
So, I hope you guys the best and wanted you to know that your 12 man team is amazing. And that by the simple fact of listening / observing how social features were not in tune with your audience is another credit to not following the easy path that most other quick-buck companies have. In other words, seems like you guys are really trying to deliver something super useful as a primary goal. Thanks - good luck - keep it up.
- by Firefox user 13650418, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I absolutely love this add-on. It helps me locate websites based on my own brain associations. That way It can help me relocate (find) sites that I find valuable based on easily recalled decriptors. It also helps me keep organized lists of curriculum (websites) that my students use based on subject matter. Its a great tool and I recommend it to may people, both friends, colleagues, as well as total strangers!
- by Doncho Angelov, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great productivity extension. Using them for years, excellent replacement of Delicious. I hope the business model survives, it'll be hard to find a replacement for these ones!

With next update which I manually installed because old Firefox wasn't updating plugins anymore, new setting appeared that allowed me to disable those video annotations. So now I can give it 4 stars. It still have toolbar removed and now to add bookmark I need to click too many times to go through all those steps you was able to skip previously, but it's not that big of a problem.
Give you 5 stars? Hell no. I don't care about your annotations and you still showing me that Capture icon on youtube player, and there is no option to remove that damn button. And yes, I disabled everything else related to annotation in settings, but I still see that annoying button.
- by Firefox user 12218060, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Been using Diigo forever. Glad it works beautifully on this hugely modified version of Firefox. Good to see that lower case d icon on the menu bar.
- by Harryi3t, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5I have been using Diigo for a long time. This has been very useful. I don't have to re read the document again when I come back to it.
Please add a menu option to open the otherwise impossible (using mouse) "Annotation Toolbar"
For a long time my workaround was to do a dummy highlight, that would trigger the toolbar to show up and then I would delete the dummy highlight.
Now I know there is a keyboard shortcut for it "ctrl+alt+a" but for a new user or even an old user who has forgotten it, this becomes so much difficult. Now I have also learnt that in the options settings, one can set it to open the toolbar by default and I think this setting should be enabled by default.
Anyway adding this option to the toolbar should only help and not cause any issue.
