There are many great add-ons for Firefox, but this is the one I love the most. Drag & DropZones makes everyday browsing and searching so much easier, that you'll get addicted to it. At first you'll probably need a few minutes to adjust the zones to your needs, but after that, it will shortly feel natural to search by drag and drop.
This extension should deserve a freaking award or something!
The word is too small ....
When I drop on empty tile I don't want any action to be performed!
Instead D&DZ tries to URL to a site - this usually ends with 404 or invalid URL error page.
Please make this behavior possible (drop on empty tile = null = no action performed).
I´ve used this addon for years, and it´s been one of the main reasons, if not the main one, that I haven´t moved to other browser and stayed with Firefox.
That being said, my main problem is not being able to add folders with different search engines on it, so with a single "drag" gesture we would be able to fire up several searches simultaneously. The good old Web Search Pro used to be able do this, and it it the most serious omission of this addon, feature wise.
And oddly enough, there´s no way to backup your settings if you migrate to a new computer, new profile, etc. I have no idea why implementing a "Backup" settings is so "difficult" to do.
Anyway, I´ve finally managed to backup my settings manually by doing this:
1) Find the "Searchplugins" folder on your good profile, and overwrite the new profile with it.
2) Find "dendzones.sqlite" on your good profile, and overwrite the new profile with it.
3) If the grid size does not correspond with your previous settings, change it to suit your actual dropzones, and you´re good to go.
I highly recommend to use the "Add to search bar" plugin to further increase this addon´s functionality.
Really happy to see this addon is being developed again, keep it going guys, and PLEASE ADD FOLDERS SUPPORT!!
This is a great extension!
It is a pity that the developer has decided to stop developing it ...
Excellent module !
Permet de simplement faire une recherche sur le moteur de son choix. Couplé avec AddToSearchBar les recherches deviennent un vrai plaisir. Ex : j'ai ajouté allocine a mes moteurs, si lors de surf je fait glisser le nom d'un film dans le cadre allocine qui apparait, je tombe directement sur la page du site. -1 pour le manque de traduction.
It changes your search term in the text box and adds /setprefs?prev=http://www.google.com/search?q=yoursearchword and then gives you a 414 error: The requested URL /search... is too large to process.
Google SSL still works though and I should probably be using that anyways but just wanted to point out this problem.
This is the very best add-ons for Firefox. I thought it wasn't working with V.21 but it does...somehow I had turned off the icon button, even though I had enabled it in the extension itself...oops! It looks like the designer has moved on from Firefox extensions. I hope this continues to work for many many versions to come.
Pressing Ctrl+Shift+left click on a link activates drag and drop zones, instead of opening the link in new foreground tab which is the default behavior of Firefox.
edit: about:config tweak fixed the problem
You can disable this feature in about:config by switching the following preference to false: extensions.dendzones.activateonctrlshiftclick
Leider funktioniert es nicht mehr :(
1. If I delete search engine from the browser, he still appear in D&D zones?
2. Make option to disable some engines in D&D zones.
been using quickdrag for years to drag links to a new tab, where you dont have to hover over the tab bar. just grab a link, drag a inch or so and let go. it opens the link in a new tab in the background. this extention kills it.
Dragurlink kind of fixes the problem. but the second time you drag, your extention forgets the timeout function, so that one is useless too.
what would ne even better is if i drag to an empty space, it will go what quickdrag does. not open a null page. that way, i wont even need quickdrag anymore.
Mark text ---> drag&drop it to one of your search engines
Unique experience !!
I agree with the past reviews saying this would be perfect if it allowed to select Save folders or Bookmarks folders instead of just popping up the Save As... dialog. That would make this the ultimate drag add-on, but it's still great non the less.
Also the ability to use the custom firefox query search [%s on bookmarks] would be great.
That is revolutionary! Just hope that the title in each grid could be bigger and metro like~
Very useful addon. Try it.
Flaws & Improvements:
- Does not work properly if flash content is on the site. For example the addon disappears under Youtube Videos.
- "Activate when dragging images" and "Active when dragging links" should imho be disabled by default.
- No button to reset all the chosen search engines.
It's very convenient compared to other extension!
It's better to use the current engine to search when drag to spare space.
Please make tiles smaller or do something else to prevent the extension from reacting to *any* drag'n'dropping.
Otherwise it's getting annoying real fast, even when the original idea is rather good.
it is so emotional intuitive! Great! Best Great forever! Thank You Very Much!
Very nice add-on, thank you very much! All my surfing transformed into pure joy after installing this! What I am missing (and hoping to be implemented soon), is the folder assignment for a few kinds of folders. First, for Links, ie. Wiki, YouTube, Tech etc. into different bookmark folders. Second, for Pages / Pics / Music / ... (where to be downloaded upon dropping, without Save as... dialog. Third, Notes - the selected portions of text. Thank you very much in advance!
Mark the drag & drop operation has handled when dropping text outside of any zone. 1.54 behavior caused a default Firefox search... T.T
This add-on is awesome. I use it combined with another add-on, “Add to Search Bar” that allows to add any search engine to both Goole search bar and Drag & Dropzones (even those you cannot add with the default “Manage Search Engine” function within Google search bar).
I’d just have two lil suggestions of improvements:
1/ Allow setting options to open search result in a pop-up window (for instance, I usually use wordreference to translate words in pages and I’d like the result to show up in a pop-up window rather than a new tab in order to keep on reading while the pop-up page is downloading; that said for other searches, say Google, I prefer it to open in a new tab; that’s why I’d like to have the choice to define settings of how it opens for each search engine)
2/ Allow syncing the add-on through Firefox sync cuz I use a PC and a laptop and each time I customize Drag & Dropzones I need to do it two times
Finally, lemme reply to shiios who was asking to "make an option that if you drag something to an empty space, it would do nothing instead of trying to make it go to the domain. This gets very annoying if I accidentally dragged something and want to cancel it but I don't have any options"…
Dude, just press ESCAPE key while dragging, it works like a charm :)
A great addon for me. Congrats on creating it buddy. Here are a few more suggestions to make it even better :
1.Enable a hotkey to show the grid
2.Enable putting bookmarks folders in the grid so that we can put a bookmark in a desired folder in 1 step. (No other addon lets you put a bookmark in its folder in less than 3 steps, your addon will become unique if you did this - I imagine that many people will use it solely to create bookmarks. So think of doing this)
3.Enable exporting preferences to a text file and importing them back from the same text file.
