Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks, this is useful. More options to customize whether to download PDFs will be nice. Edit: never mind, I find that I can turn that off at the Zotero extension preference.

Very practical! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It smooths the process of creating a database of citations, which can be tedious at times. I agree with jpdomann that imported pdf files should be moved out of the Firefox profile temp folder. At least a custom folder (maybe set via preferences) to store imported references would be nice.

Not much JabFox can do here

I can understand your frustration that PDF's are saved in the Firefox profile directory. The problem is that Mozilla restricts write-access to that folder for add-ons (for good security reasons). Thus there is not much I can do on the side of JabFox. However, please note that recent JabRef versions include a cleanup action (Quality -> Cleanup) which lets you move all files to the predefined folder. Thus just run this cleanup and your PDF's are in the right place. We are also planing to allow the user to specify certain cleanup operations (like moving the linked files) automatically after every import, see https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/issues/1283 for the status of this feature.

Great start, but importing files needs work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great plugin to very easily grab citation / abstract info, and associated files. Thanks Jabref!

After using the plugin a few times, one problem I've found is that it doesn't follow the file import settings used by my database. In the Jabref desktop program, new pdfs are moved to a predefined file directory, and the filename is changed to match a pattern (e.g. Author_TItle)

pdfs imported with the Jabfox plugin do have the proper name format, but they are downloaded to my temporary internet files folder, which is routinely deleted... Please update so that new files undergo the import process defined in Jabref's Preferences -> Import, and the file is moved to the location from Preferences -> File -> Main file directory

My only other initial thought is that it would be convenient to be able to select or deselect which elements of a citation you are importing. For instance, on arxiv pages, Jabfox imports both a pdf of the document, and an html snapshot of the webpage. I frankly couldn't care less about the webpage snapshot, and an option to deselect it would be very appreciated.

Thanks for making this!

Improvements coming!

I just uploaded a new version of JabFox (1.1) which let you disable the creation of the html snapshot. The version will be reviewed by Mozilla now and should be available soon.

Not yet perfect Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The add-on does what it is do! The citations are directly incorporated into JabRef. However, there are some irritations at the moment: The search dialog of JabRef does not open automatically. And most important it stops firefox.

Bug fixed!

The freezing bug should be fixed now in version 1.0.2, thanks for the report!
Not sure through what you mean with "search dialog does not open". Please file a new issue for this on https://github.com/JabRef/jabref or https://github.com/JabRef/JabFox.
