Bookmark Tags 0.3 is practically a new extension. There's no longer any concept of tag folders, a tag root folder, tagged bookmarks vs. regular bookmarks, duplicated bookmarks, etc. I hope you'll find this new version much simpler.

Big changes in 0.2. NEW: Tag browser sidebar and window. By default, Bookmark Tags now creates only one folder per tag; permutation is now a limited option.

Version 0.1.0 39.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0.4 - 1.0+

This version works with Firefox 1.0.4+ and Deer Park Alpha 1. Some functionality is broken in Deer Park Alpha 2.

NOTE TO LINUX USERS: There's a bug in Bookmark Tags 0.1.0 related to file permissions that causes it to malfunction. Update coming soon, but in the meantime, you can work around it by doing the following: After starting up Firefox the first time after installing Bookmark Tags, close Firefox, and change the permissions on the file %profile%/chrome/bookmarktags.rdf so that you're able to read and write it (chmod 640 or something like that will work), where %profile% is your Firefox profile directory.
