Change the version Rated 4 out of 5 stars
dnr_ron´s workaround is good, but it doesn´t let you add new favorites.
I think the solution is simply getting inside the extension´s file and tweaking the Firefox version it is for. I used to know how to do this, but loooooong ago. Maybe somebody has a straight knowledge of how to get inside the file and change that. Seems too easy to believe, I know, but it used to work.
Please someone try it. Cheers!!
Breaks With Every New of Firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Very handy but breaks with every new version of Firefox. Not worth installing.
Plain Old Favorites is BROKEN (AGAIN) Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Once again my favorite and most used / needed extension, "plain old favorites", is out of date with the new version of Firefox F22!!! Favorites is on the menu but there are no favorites and add does not work at all!! How many times and how many complaints must the Mozilla people have to see, before they get a clue and make sure that some of these really desired and heavily used add-ons should either become a part of Firefox or that they should coordinate before releasing the next version. As is, Mozilla is starting to look just like Microsoft, whose testing stage is usually the first official release. Glad I am a Unix guy at work but will not upgrade to F22 there either because - I NEED MY FAVORITES, not a version for IE and and another (bookmarks) version for Firefox. Come on guys start working together please.

Incompatible with Fx 24?
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
My most valuable Add-on. Unfortunately, it seems to be easily broken with changes in FF. Fortunately the author updates it fairly quickly, so I always wait a few days before updating. Still, I am starting to look at other alternatives which while less convenient are more robust.This user has 4 previous reviews of this add-on.
Not compatible with FF 22 Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I really like this addon as I still have to use IE and this way I can sync my bookmarks, but recently after a FF update it stopped working...I have to figure out something else now...
PlainOldFavorites 1.2.1 - Doesn't works with FF 22 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It's works fine with any version up to FF 21.x
With the new one 22.x (beta and final) it doesn't work well.
I wrote many messages to the program author but I didn't see any changes and the author ddin't reply.
Now if I want to use PlainOldFavorites I have to use FF 21.x

Wow. Such a simple thing but such big results. When my hard drive started to die, my company only copies off certain files. Because I hadn't exported my bookmarks for a while, I lost them. Only I.E. favorites were copied. Now I only use IE favorites in Firefox. Thank you soooooo much for this.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love it!

Does not work with Waterfox Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Loved using POF with 32-bit Firefox! For the past several months I have been using Waterfox (64-bit implementation of FF) on 64-bit Windows 7. Attempted to use POF with Waterfox but it does not work. Bookmarks do not load below "Add to Favorites..." and "Organize Favorites..." The current version of Waterfox is 14.0.1.
update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please Update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Plain Old Favorites 1.2.1 available from Homepage Rated 5 out of 5 stars
With the arrival of Firefox/Pale Moon 15.0 this week for the first time I found POF's was showing as "not compatible" in the Add-ons Manager. I sorted out Pale Moon compatibility using the method posted below to change "maxVersion" number in POF's "install.rdf" file...... BUT then discovered there was no need - a compatible version already exists!
First use "Remove" button in Add-ons Manager/Extensions to uninstall "incompatible" POF's version 1.2. Then go to POF's Homepage @ http://www.iosart.com/firefox/plainoldfavorites/ and click on link "Install Plain Old Favorites 1.2" (yellow script near top of page, beside picture) which will actually install updated POF's version 1.2.1 straight into Add-ons Manager in normal way. (Alternative method is to Right Click on link, download "POF's_1.2.1.xpi" file to your computer and then simply drag/drop file onto open browser window - which starts normal Add-ons install sequence.)
POF's 1.2.1.already has "maxVersion" increased to 99.0.* so no need to change anything to make it compatible with latest Firefox/Pale Moon 15.0 - all seems to work as before - Hooray!
VMT (Very Many Thanks) to Alex Sirota for creating my No1 Add-on. Any chance of an update and fix for the "Organize Favorites' opens a blank window with IE8" Known Issue? Would be a real boon on my old XP machine! Works like a dream on Windows 7 though - thanks again.
PS. Pale Moon is a custom built and optimized Firefox-based (ie; same Mozilla code) browser for Windows only. Try it!
One of a kind Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It's and excellent app because there's no other that manages IE favorites. But it lacks some basics:
* It's ALWAYS behind in FireFox updates.
* It lacks the ability to delete folders.
* It lacks the ability to open all links from a folder at once with the middle button.
* It lacks the option to update all sites icons.
* It lacks the ability to order favorites by hand to my likes.
All these items are things that IE favorites have had for ages. Hope the developer reads this...
Thank you. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you so much for developing this. I had my gigantic collection of years of Favorites as a folder within Bookmarks, which was a nightmare. I'm so happy to be able to use Favorites again.
