Perfect extension. Unfortunately destroyed by mozilla by switching to WebExtensions before fixing important bugs. Vote for this bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1225916 and support Perry in his efforts to get it running: https://github.com/wagle/tagspace
Organizing bookmarks by tags means I no longer have to waste so much time categorizing bookmarks, and accumulating thousands of them stops creating messes that need regular upkeep.
Thanks for making this. UPDATE: I'll figure out how to vote on the Mozilla bug for implementation of tags in FF 57+. I am not moving to 57 until this feature is available there in some way or another! Thank you for your time.
Definitely one of my favorite plugins of all time (folders suck), and I am so stoked it is now working fully again! I liked it so much, I kept using the partially working version for years because there wasn't really a substitute. Now I'm glad it's fully fixed again.
This seems the only (and very good) tool available to search bookmarks by the tags the user assigns. Should be a must-to-have. Thank you Hark! in case you have time, it would be nice if you could apply the very small but essential fix found by dongadoy and it seems the right version is v.4.3.3!! Thanks you dongadoy! BTW one needs to replace only in the english temp\locale\en-US\commands.dtd, unless he uses German or Swedish Dongadoy writes: "The details of changing "lastvisit" to "mostrecentvisit" is found in http://dev.grue.in/issues/134" but this page is not needed in fact since dongadoy's instructions suffice and are right there!
After patching it as described below, I love this add-on and find it absolutely the best way to manage bookmarks. Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut that will take you right to the tag search box (in the upper left if you have the sidebar on)? [Sorry for asking this in the review page but I don't think we have a discussion area.]
THANK YOU dongadoy for sharing your fix with us! I don't normally post things in forums, but your efforts in fixing this add-on & taking the time to post your instructions motivated me to sign up & write this!
Your fix worked for me & I'm now back to using one of the best add-ons ever made. I can't understand how Firefox hasn't paid the developer for his idea & integrated it into the app.
I used TagSieve for several months last year and it was wonderful. I tagged all my bookmarks and started using tags to find bookmarks. Then it wasn't sorting tags and bookmarks. Then the XML error appeared. So I stopped using it. I finally got around to investigating the problems.
I got TagSieve working again!
Here are the two important points to getting it working: * Use the older version 4.3.3 of TagSieve. Newer version 4.3.4 does not sort the tags and bookmarks properly. Get TagSieve version 4.3.3 from http://dev.grue.in/projects/tagsieve/files * Change "lastvisit" to "mostrecentvisit". Mozilla had renamed the field, and caused the XML errors. The details of changing "lastvisit" to "mostrecentvisit" is found in http://dev.grue.in/issues/134
Here are the steps: 1. Download file http://dev.grue.in/attachments/download/38/tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi 2. Rename file "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi" to "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi.zip". 3. Create a temporary folder "temp". 4. Unzip "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi.zip" into folder "temp". 5. Edit the following three files. Replace "lastvisit" with "mostrecentvisit". "lastvisit" is found once in each file. * temp\locale\de-DE\commands.dtd * temp\locale\en-US\commands.dtd * temp\locale\sv-SE\commands.dtd 6. Zip the contents of folder "temp", overwrite "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi.zip". Do not include parent folder "temp" in the zip. 7. Delete temporary folder "temp". 8. Rename file "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi.zip" to "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi". 9. Drag and drop file "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi" into the Firefox window. Click "Install Now".
Save file "tagsieve-4.3.3.xpi" in case you ever have to reinstall Firefox.
