Didn't work with FF 43.xx 64bit Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tested again also the version 1.4.1-signed
The installation is OK, but when I opened FF, the favorites menu is blank.
Thanks. Bye.

Please get this Add-on Signed as soon as you can so it works with FF41. I love your add-on, its so much better than the native FF favorites.

Breaks my menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tried Version 1.4 and so far it seems OK. The only thing is that it breaks my menu with its extra entries (besides 'Favorites' there are three more: Add to Favorite, Manage Favorite and Open in Tabs). (NB: That's my translation from the German version I use.)

It would be great if there was an option in the settings of this extension, which allows to disable the extra menu items.

Where find old versions of FF? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm heartened by these reports that PlainOldFavorites works in more recent FF versions. But I don't want to try updating FF until I know where to find older versions of it to re-install if POF stops working. When I search for older versions, FF takes me only to the current version. Where do you find older FF downloads? I'm still running FF 20.0.1 because I don't want to lose POF.

I miss my PlainOldFavorites Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is my favotite ad on (no pun intended), and I wish it was an automatic part of each new version of ff.... I would be more than happy to contribute to the developers if it was a part of each update. I would like to stay up to date with ff but I always go back to an older version just for my favorites.

Still one of my favorite addons. Works great on Firefox ESR 24.5.0. Go to authors website to download lastest version. Not sure why it's not here, been out a long time.

It's not listed in the developer's site but it works.

FF29 compatibility? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Despite the warning that it won't work, I have been using Plain Old Favorites with Firefox v28 just fine. My problem is with the switch to v29. I have reinstalled v28 and turned off the automatic update because of this. For reasons I won't go into, I need to work sometimes in IE, sometimes in Firefox, and I don't want to bother maintaining two parallel sets of Bookmarks/Favorites, so Plain Old Favorites is essential to me. Can anybody say when will it be adapted to v29?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It has worked great for me until FF (firefox) went to version 28.0 Now it does not work and was causing my FF not to even open at all. I like plain old favorites much better than FF bookmarks. Please update to make compatible

Thanks Gregsto. That worked a charm even for version 27 of Firefox. Glad to have my Favorites back.

Many Thanks Alex!

Version 1.4 WORKS with Firefox 26 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Additional temp work around for Favorites only displaying alphabetically on Win8 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Issue: On (some?/all?) Windows 8/8.1 installations, the PlainOldFavorites Extension will display Favorites alphabetically even though the 'Sort by name' checkbox in the extension's 'Options' is unchecked.

Possible Workaround:
Open Windows Explorer(not IE), open the folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ (or wherever you have installed Firefox)
Then right click on 'firefox.exe', select 'Properties', then select the 'Compatibility' tab,
then check the box 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:', and select 'Windows 7' in the dropdown selection box.
Click 'OK', restart Firefox and check if the Favorites are now displaying in the sorted order you prefer.

While this worked for me to get this extension to display my Favorites in the order I prefer(non alphabetically), I can NOT guarantee that Firefox 'may' lose some Windows 8/8.1 specific functionality, on the other hand, I'm not aware as of yet of any functionality of Windows 8/8.1 that Firefox 'does' take advantage of.
Please reply if you notice this workaround affects/looses any specific functionality due to setting the compatibility to 'Windows 7'.

A must-have add-on for people working with both Firefox and IE. v1.3.1 from the author's site (http://www.iosart.com/firefox/plainoldfavorites/) is working fine for me with FF25. The author has always made a new version available from their site any time a FF update has caused an issue in the past. Thanks and keep up the good work!

You can get PlainOldFavorites to work by simply doing the following:

1: Install version 1.4 from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/plainoldfavorites/versions/

2: Right click anywhere in your toolbar and click customise.

3: Drag the Favourites button to wherever you want it in your toolbar and click Done.

Still not working,pls fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tried the latest version you mentioned, but no go. The word "Favorites" appeared in the menu, but there were no items in it when clicked. When working this was a great add-on!
