- by MediaPuck, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5it does NOT sync properly between browsers [Firefox - Chrome - Opera]
I have all 3 and use Firefox as my primary browser. I add dials and or delte some on a daily basis. But when I SYNC between Opera and/or Chrome, none of the "Groups" properly reflect the dial count or even the arrangement of groups the way I have them in FF.
If none of those basics sync, then it's actually stupid to even have everhelper installed. Because it does not "really" sync.
Same with bookmarks. That's an entire more horror. IF it ever completes at all, then it decides on its own, to simply "duplicate" the bookmarks.
By now, I have 3 duplications on firefox. It is taking forever to re-organize and delete, because now it never completes any sync for the bookmarks due to a over 150,000 count because of the duplications. I will see to get all my dials properly downloaded [not as json] and hopefully fins a way to import them to chrome via a fresh and clean FVD install in Chrome. I wished they would have kept the original saving sd version.=============================
After some time now, I tried this again.
Have to say, that NIMBUS fixed my firefox.
But I only allow the speed dial, not the bookmarks, because it will take me another 6 months just to properly eliminate all duplicates and re-organize the way I initially hat mine.
Speed dial: in OPERA I can no longer use it because it produces an immediate crash after opening. It's not a surprise though because it tries to either sync [without me having sync enabled] I tried the backup as sd file. It saves it of course from FF, but cannot import it as such to Opera. So, I saved it as text - which I appreciate that this was implemented - and I loaded it in to Opera.
Well, 15 hours later - there was zero imported other than all empty categories. I checked with Taskmanager [win 10] and not surprising it had ovr 60 instances of Opera windows open.
So, I had to scrap this tryout also.
Then I went ahead and installed the Eversync again [I did a clean install of the latest Opera] and it seemed to be working OK.
But - despte that I disabled "autosync" because I have a lot of dials, it says that auto update is disabled now. But this is unfortunately not so. Opera is open, Eversync is open, Speed dials are loaded in after 1:49 hrs. But that was several hours ago, and Opera still syffers with blank dials [url is OK, just nothing else, and it tries to update every single dial at once across all categories.
Taskmanger: Opera holds a steady 18 instances/browser windows - just never finishes even one. I have over 80 groups and checking [using the moment Opera is responding again for a few seconds] and see that it does literally try to update every single dial at once across all groups.
I will minimize the browser and let it run now for a few hours. Will see if it ever finishes at all.
Fact is - definitely NOT for any work environment to be used. Not on Opera. I uninstalled the browser, including FVD and Eversync in the first place because I thought maybe with a clean install Eversync, and or FVD would actually work properly. It imported all Groups [empty] but also nowhere near my arrangement I have in Firefox. Nope it just randomly sorts the groups [no idea where it takes that from]. I am logged in properly - but it makes no difference, Eversync/FVD does whatever it does. Not A proper SYNC.
I understand that a proper SYNC would give me the identical group arrangement on the second browser, asI have it in Firefox.
Firefox is my daily browser and I have the groups and dials arranged exactly the way I need them.
With Eversync, if lucky to get anything at all after hours, all I encounter is a total mixed up group arrangement and definitely not my latest dials the way I have it in Firefox.
So - bottom line: Uninstall the extensions from Opera because with them enabled I cannot use Opera at all.
If Eversync is disabled, then the browser functions a little better. With both - FVD and Eversync disabled, Opera speeds and exceeds even Firefox and Chrome.
So, it has little to do which browser you use, if you have more dials than the average, prepare yourself for molasses.
- by Sail, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Suddenly I have only 3 bookmarks left, and there is no available local backups in my work computer. And I also found that in another browser which bookmarks haven't been deleted, there are some bookmarklets's url become "http://incorrecturl/"
- by Firefox user 13826754, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5This extension wil not install. Every time I try, I get the message "Only available with Firefox; get Firefox now." But I am already using Firefox, latest verson, and nothing I do gets me to the eversync istallation page.

Important, if you sync bookmarks between FireFox and Chrome!
FireFox folder "Unsorted" won't be synced by Chrome browser, but it will be synced by EverSync to FireFox. Read More >>
Any idea ?

- by marcus-21, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5I was hoping to sync bookmarks across several machines, some with Firefox and some with Chrome or Vivaldi. This feature doesn't work - trying to download or merge bookmarks to Chrome or Vivaldi results in either a crash or hung app, usually after it has deleted all your current bookmarks but before successfully downloading most/any of the bookmarks stored on the server.
It also slows down your browser startup noticeably, and is set to auto-backup your bookmarks to your local machine, but doesn't let you modify the backup location. I went to their forum to see if any suggestions were available, but discovered numerous threads with the same problems I'm having, but no solutions.
Might be OK if you are using Firefox exclusively - but if you're using Firefox exclusively, you can use Firefox's built-in sync, which doesn't slow down your browser and doesn't fill up your SSD with backups.
- by khrapov, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5Guys, login doesn't work on FireFox 59. Please urgently fix it.
Login works fine on Chrome, but here, on FireFox 59, it doesn't. Looking forward. After fixing I will change my review to positive, because you service is indeed good replacement for XMarks. When works:)
- by Firefox user 13953799, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5Pure crap. Misplace bookmarks, deletes bookmarks and takes fooooorever to do something. Used to use xmarks but since they are quiting I tried this. Same set of bookmarks on every computer to start with should be easy, right? Wrong. On some computers all bookmarks were gone, on other some of the bookmarks were gone and on yet another computer all bookmarks were there, twice. Tried to delete all bookmarks from all but one browser and then download them onto the other but still the same mess. Now this browser has been been *downloading* for more than 24 hours and still not finish, using more than 18 Gb of RAM. It takes talent to make something this useless.
Edit: I am paying for this, just as I used to pay for Xmarks, and therefor not the free versions limitations. I don't mind paying for things that I use, if they work. One star is really to much.
