Automatic Menu Closing bug on FF44 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Temporary solution is to change 'Distance from menu (in pix)' to 1 while waiting developer to fix the bug.

1. Go Options, under 'Automatic Menu-closing'
2. Close when mouse moves off menu (make sure it's selected)
3. Distance from menu (in pix): 1

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0). 

Bug occured only as mouse moves between menu and submenu when (non-default) Autoclosing option is enabled with its distance option at the default of zero. I could not reproduce this bug until your workaround gave me some clue. Fixed in 3.0.1. If issue persists for anyone, please report, preferably via support forum or contact form.

I can not believe I didn't see this earlier... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is by FAR one of the best FF extensions out there! This is exactly how bookmarks menu was supposed to be from the beginning. Thank you!!

Thanks for this Update ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the support of menu from some addon like:
- Stylish

That's a great improvement !

works beautifully Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I find this extension indispensible. It works exactly as advertised and has since its beginning. custom.firefox.lady has always been highly responsive to feedback and is always pleasant to deal with, and this extension has always been a joy to use. Deserves more than five stars.

Because sometimes they need to stay f* open! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on they do now.
Developer is fantastic, I reported a problem with Omnibar being incompatible and they quickly got in contact and solved it in a matter of hours. 5 starts to them!

Отличное дополнение для Firefox! Позволяет открывать закладки с помощью средней кнопки мыши или или левой с Ctrl - без закрытия выпадающего меню Закладки.

Perfect, just what I was looking for!

I wonder why Firefox does not support such a feature by default: Opening only some links in a menu (in contrast to one or all what Firefox currently offers) seems like a very common use case to me.

Feature request: Can you make it so that on the Bookmarks menu, a right click -> Open or Open in New Tab keeps the menu open too?
Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1.1-signed). 

This feature is available in version 3.0 (currently on the beta channel). Download from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/stay-open-menu/versions/3.0b5 or wait for the final release.

As you can see from other reviews, this does work for others. I'd be glad to help you find what's going wrong, if you'd like to contact me with further details via my contact form at http://www.shadetreeapiary.com/extension/Forms/contactform.htm or at the Add-ons Forum thread at https://forums.mozilla.org/addons/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=11332 or the listed support site (mozillazine).

I can't remember if I ever thanked you for this add-on, so I'll do so now. Thank you very much, and then some more.
This is *the* add-on I can't do without in any browser and why I still stick with Firefox, despite the questionable roads Mozilla has been taking it.

And separate thanks for the 3.0 beta versions that work with the normal Bookmark button added by Classic Theme Restorer.

This is a must have. Hard to believe that with all those options in about:config, this isn't one. Glad we have this to fix it!

I think the behaviour "keep the bookmark menu opens" should be default in Firefox.

Works great on Firefox 30, I can browse through bookmarks from the main toolbar button itself and keep hidden the bookmarks toolbar this way

No longer works consistently Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This WAS a great add-on, but it no longer works all the time. It's not working consistently in Firefox 29, and it wasn't working consistently in FF 28. Sometimes it works as desired for one or two tabs. But just as often, the bookmarks disappear as soon as the tab opens. I really like this add-on and hope it can be fixed.

Does this happen only with Ctrl-click (rather than middle-click)? Only with livemark (rss feed) items? Only with some feed-related add-on installed? If you (or anyone else experiencing this or similar issue) could provide more details, it would be helpful. Version 3.0 (currently on the development channel) works somewhat differently; perhaps you could test if it functions better for you.

History menu in Firefox 29 closes on click Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please fix new history menu (toolbar and app button) in Firefox 29. It closes on click now.

Not for Mac Users. ;-( Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seems, that this nicce addon does not work on a Mac (Maveric).This should be told to the user.(I gave 5 Stars 'cause I guess, it would work on Windows, from reading the other ratings, and I really love the Idea!)

EDIT: As stated by the developer's comments, this Addon does not work with the native OS X Menu Bar, which seems obvious and understandable.

But it does work within the Bookmarks Toolbar, so there is a tiny little workaround, which - I guess - I'll never use, but I testet it, and it works ;-)

Re: Not for Mac Users

I do not have access to a Mac to test, so I must depend upon user reports. The Mac issues that I am aware of have been listed in the "Developer's Comments" section (which see for details). Basically, Stay-Open Menu does not work with the native Mac OS X Menu Bar, but should work with the Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu Button, etc. Please clarify whether or not that is what you experience. I'll add a brief note of the issue to the "About this Add-on" section if I can get confirmation on this. Thanks.

Stopped working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am using Firefox 16.0.2 and I just noticed that Stay-Open Menu is not working at all. Latest version of the add-on. I had Tabs Mix Plus and Web Developer installed, I have removed them, S-O M still doesn't work.Damn shame. Could be my profile but I'm not resetting it and repairing all the damage that causes.Think Firefox's era is coming to an end actually, though Chrome won't get my vote till it gets a Master Password and a Go button.

Update: I can't figure out how to reply so I'm doing it here. Many thanks for getting back. Unfortunately I'm not going to be updating Firefox anymore as just too much stuff breaks every time they fiddle with it, so I'm staying on 16 from now into the foreseeable future. I hope you get the update changes working, this add-on of yours really does restore a vital missing piece of core functionality FF should always have had.In the meantime I've upped the review to 5, but I'll have to check the older version works.Keep it up! ;)

Update: Confirmed 2.1 works with FF 16.0.2 - Manythanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1-signed). 

Confirmed that Stay-Open Menu 2.2 does not work on Firefox versions prior to 20. I've updated its compatibility information on AMO. Firefox 16.0.2 is obsolete and should be upgraded for security reasons. I haven't time to test new versions of Stay-Open Menu on all the obsolete Firefox versions, so I rely on user's bug reports for this information. Thanks for the information, although bugs should be reported as listed in the 'About this Add-on' section, rather than posted in the reviews. If you won't update Firefox for some reason, please revert to Stay-Open Menu 2.1 or install 2.2.1 which contains a tiny change to restore compatibility with older versions of Firefox (available only from the all versions page until it gets reviewed by Mozilla).
