Please renew TiddlyFox for FireFox
It is my oppinion too:
"A must have
Unfortunately, TiddlyFox does not work with Firefox 57 (read below).
I hope that Mozilla will change its policy before tw5's users will be contrain to switch to Chrome"
Works perfectly. I will stay on ver 56 until it works on ver 57
Great extension but the no-compatibility with firefox Quantum is a big caveat.... Tiddlywiki becomes useless without this extension, and this is my bible since 10 years, I've stored every important thing in it !

I'm avid user of Tiddlywiki and Tiddlyfox for years now. Thank you Jeremy for this wonderful software. The TiddlyFox extension is indispensable for my workflow. I understand Mozillas reasons to prevent Firefox from accessing the file system for security reasons, but not providing any means to access it, prevents Firefox from being a productivity tool! Please Mozilla give back to us users the freedom to write our own files we change in Firefox where we want!
It is not the extension which is to blame for not working with Firefox 57, it is Mozillas policy.
The Tiddlyfox was one reason, I use the Tiddlywiki. It was apt fit for my workflow. But now all of a sudden the Firefox Quantum broke that add-on. If you guys make it compatible with Latest Firefox Quantum that will make it great.
A simple add on, but the auto save is quite useful. Isn't currently compatible with quantum, else it would be 5 star.
I used this with TiddlyWiki and then the even more powerful mGSD "getting things done" specialization, but Firefox 57 doesn't support the simple-storage API, so my TiddlyWiki files are all read-only now. It would be really great if an extension could work to save the TiddlyWiki to a virtual file that Firefox Sync syncs between browsers.
It WAS good, but these version of Firefox it is not working anymore. :-(
On my Firefox 55.0.3 (32-bit), this add-on is marked as Legacy. Clicking the label takes me to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-add-technology-modernizing.
Is there any plan to adopt new Firefox add-on framework?
This is my favorite notes taking system. I would hate it to see it go :-(
Attention: Do not have windows explorer open in the folder of your html file. Explorer preview panel will hook the file, and you won't be able to save.
This was my issue. The ad-on was not responsable of it.
Extension works great, many people (like me) thought it works out of the box, but you have to enable the saving after the installation or else it doesn't work. Find the TiddlyWiki icon (fox on a ball) on the Firefox menu. click it and choose enable saving. Then it works perfectly.
doesn't work anymore with new version :'(
Same situation at win 7, win 10, ubuntu.
There is no alternative that is almost as practical as WoaS for me.
The re-install of the latest alpha-version isn't working too. Shock!
"This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox." (54.0.1)
But, click the gray "Add to Firefox"-Button and it works anyway.
Good addon to save my precious notes
You're better off using Notepad.
Doesn't save, Extension is useless. Bad.
i installed 1.0alpha18 instead.
I have installed this extension. It shows up in the addons page on firefox. But it does nothing.
I have opened a the empty tiddly wiki in firefox. I am supposed to see a blue / green button somewhere. I cannot find such a thing. I am able to save the file through the file save function on firefox browser even without this extension.
I have firefox 48 running on ubuntu 14.04
Hi vidyadhara I'm sorry you've run into problems. If you've lots of buttons on your toolbar then the TiddlyFox button might have been pushed into the overflow menu; click the menu button (three horizontal lines) to show the menu. You can then click "Customize" and rearrange things so that the TiddlyFox icon is visible.
Always loved this extension and have several wikis in Firefox. The recent update has broken file saving though. I have seen the comments but 1) I am not in private viewing mode 2) I do not have Never Save History selected and 3) There is no big blue ball to click on to enable saving! Effectively leaves my wikis as useless as saving saves them as <wikiname>(1).htm etc..
OK, Update... have found the TiddlyFox icon in the Firefox toolbar but it's not very obvious! Maybe whatever theme I have enabled is hiding it somewhat.
I just realized, that a TiddlyWiki file that has - in my case - a german umlaut in its file name, will not be saved by TiddlyFox 2.x with Firefox 53. This was not a problem so far. Maybe this concerns more non-ASCII characters in the file name and therefore this could be interesting to others.
By the way: only ONE of my TiddlyWiki file names contains a german umlaut - what would you think was the first file I used with TiddlyFox 2.x ? :-)
Thanks a lot for TiddlyWiki!
I installed the pre-release by setting xpinstall.signatures.required in about:conig to true.
And it works! Hurray, I am back in business! Thanks a lot for all your effort and work about tiddlywiki and tiddlyfox!
Jeremy, thanks for all you've done with TiddlyWiki for many years. Recently upgrading one Windows 10 machine and one Windows 7 machine to Firefox version 53.0 caused two issues:
1) File save is now more awkward. Closing a tiddler does not automatically update the TiddlyWiki file (leaving the circled checkmark icon on the right sidebar colored red). And when clicking the right sidebar save icon (circled checkmark), a download file dialog is opened with %20s replacing spaces. Would like to get back to the simple click the checkmark to end tiddler editing and your done mode of operation.
2) The cat on the ball has disappeared from the toolbar. Nor did it even leave a smile behind. UPDATE: the cat-on-ball icon is present in the toolbar in a normal FF window, but is missing from private FF windows.
On both machines, TiddlyFox was updated mid-April.
Thanks in advance for any fixes.
Hi Kamel - there is a bug in 2.0.1 that prevents TiddlyFox from working in private windows, or when "Never remember history" is enabled. That's why you're seeing the fallback to the default behaviour of downloading the file rather than saving it.
A fix is in the works, but in the meantime you may be able to work around the issue by switching off private browsing.
UPDATE: Enable "Remember History" - Icon shows, can be added to toolbar icons, can be used to enable saving.
Issue documented at: https://github.com/TiddlyWiki/TiddlyFox/issues/46
I cannot find the TiddlyFox toolbar icon either. It shows just the icon caption in the "Customize", but dragging or adding it to the menu or the toolbar simply removes it from the available features. Restoring defaults brings it back. Restarting firefox does not show the icon in the toolbar icons nor in the menu. Thus, not able to enable saving of the TiddlyWiki.
Firefox 52.0.2 32-Bit
Thanks ChuckM I've posted a prerelease that should fix the problem. See here: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/tiddlywiki/bU2fnqAxKUA/yn-sFBY_BQAJ -- once I've confirmation that it fixes the issue I shall submit it to Mozilla.
To me, TiddlyWiki is like vim: I have used both for many years, and would be extremely unhappy if they disappeared. Jeremy Ruston's new version of the TiddlyFox is useful, as it now warns the user of simultaneously opened versions of the same html file. This now makes the extremely cautious backup strategy of the old tiddlywiki (backup in a new file after each save) unneccessary. In short, it's great to see that this fantastic tool continues to evolve.
On a first trial, I did not catch the subtlety of the TiddlyFox icon in the Firefox bar, and was utterly confused. I would suggest that the authors add a note in the TiddlyWiki website to help orient naive users like me... SO relieved to see it continues to work, and to evolve. All thumbs up for TiddlyWiki and Jeremy Ruston! TiddlyWiki remains a unique tool.
Especially like the big red warning that appears at the top of the page if the tiddlywiki is open in more than one tab.
Save/Backup both work like always.

sorry, I can not find the TiddlyFox toolbar with blue ball - I only found a nice cat-icon...
