Fails on FF 52.0.2 - works now, previous user error Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tks Jeremy, previous versions specifically asked me for save permissions. I had therefore overlooked the new button and suggest you include this in the AddOn description.

I am very happy now! TiddlyWiki is an absolutely wonderful tool! Thank You for your great work for the community.


What I wrote earlier:
Like the previous reviewer my Tiddlywiki (which is my lifeline...) stopped working today after a FF upgrade - bummer.

Let us all vote for bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1246236 so this is fixed.

Have you tried TiddlyFox 2.x? It should auto update for you.

One point to watch is that you need to explicitly enable TiddlyFox 2.x for each TiddlyWiki file that you want to use with it. When you first load a TiddlyWiki file from a file:// URI the TiddlyFox toolbar icon will show a blue ball. Clicking it brings up a panel with a big green "Enable" button that enables saving for that file. The TiddlyFox toolbar icon then switches to green to indicate that saving is enabled.

The permission settings are preserved between sessions, but are not carried over from earlier versions of TiddlyFox.

Does not work anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars

With the new restriction for file access, the plug-in does not work anymore. It makes using TW problematic.

Update: Thank you for the long reply. I do not fell I am "punishing" anyone. The plugin's description says: "A Firefox extension to enable TiddlyWiki to save changes directly to the file system". It simple does not fulfill that function anymore. Note, I gave a five star when it worked.

Yes, it is disappointing, but my team relied on that function heavily, so have to move to alternatives. Feel free to refer my disappointment to Mozilla. If I could, I would give no stars as, but here is no such an option.

Please, consider putting parts of your excellent reply into the description of the plug in.

update 2: left an entry at the linked bugzilla bug

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0alpha18.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Hi Michael the upcoming changes to Firefox are disappointing, but not necessarily the end of the world. Firstly, there are many other ways to use TiddlyWiki (eg, via Node.js, using a CloudDB server, via TiddlySpot, TiddlyDesktop etc). I appreciate that the Firefox/TiddlyFox workflow is used by many people, but it's not under my control to keep it working. When and if we have to give up, there are at least many other options.

Secondly, if enough users make the case, there's a chance that Mozilla can be persuaded to alter their plans to accommodate our use cases. In particular there's been a lot of discussion on this bug:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1246236

I appreciate why you left a one star review, but I would urge you to channel your frustration into helping make the case with Mozilla. Otherwise it feels a bit like you're punishing me for something over which I have no control.

UPDATE: Let me know if the new 2.x version works for you

How to delete entry? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Any one know how to delete an entry into TiddlyFox. I accidentally added a file to allow editing that I don't want to allow editing. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it keeps it settings. I tried deleting the tiddly file under extensions but that did not work either.

THANK YOU SO MUCH ( FireFox team read this ) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When FireFox updated to no longer the use of inner html to modify a web page it broke one of my favorite programs called Wiki on a Stick (WoaS) It is a fully self-contained self-modifying html file, that can be used as a personal wiki for whatever you want. I was so sad. I then had to use an old version of FireFox. This extension allows me to use WoaS in the latest version of FireFox. Without this extension I would go back to using an old version of FireFox. Thank you so much for the time you took to make this extension. I hope that they fast track your extension for approval. It's because of you I am using the latest version of FireFox. PS This is the first review I have ever left of an extension. It is that important to me.

could not be verified and has been disabled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just upgraded to FF43 and notestorm has stopped allowing saves. Repeated attempts to get tiddlyfox installed lead to the message above.

Hi Brian sorry you've run into that problem. I've update the registered information on AMO, please could you try again?

UPDATE: I believe you may need to uninstall and re-install TiddlyFox

Will work on FFdev 44 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This plug-in will work for Firefox Developer Edition version 44 for 64 bit machines once the developers repackage the extension with a new version of JPM and get it signed. I have tested this and know it works, I am only waiting on the programmers to update this awesome extension.

Stable and very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension does no more or less than autosaving your Wiki to your filesystem. It's hard to live without it.

cool, except annoying bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars

hello, I wanted to thank you for the extension,
but there's a small inconvenience that makes me subtract a star: it makes the "right click > add a keyword for this search" command to a field unavailable. I used the safe mode firefox and there it worked, then I reactivated the few addons I use and there's no mistake, tiddlywiki is the source. it would be awesome if you could make it not interfere there.

Tiddly wiki rocks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using tiddlywiki for 2-3 years now, and it just got better with time. Eagerly waiting for stable version of TW5. Works well on Linux desktop/laptop.

Reply to Matt, and review Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Actually, I'm mainly writing because I want to reply to Matt who posted earlier.

Matt, no worries, you should still be able to edit. At least with TiddlyWiki5 which I'm using myself, but I'm guessing the previous incarnation works the same way.

Simply open the wiki in your browser, make your changes, and then download/save the wiki as a new file. The new file can replace the old one, as it should have all your changes. It's not as smooth since you're not saving the changes directly—and must remember to save before leaving the page or closing the browser window—but it does the trick for those on Chrome or Safari, or those who do not have this add-on installed.

It's really built to be portable and available to anyone and everyone; a fantastic platform. I've been creating my own toolkit around the new alpha version for kickstarting my upcoming projects. It's open source and (although in development) available at http://github.com/dnordstrom/kit.motiwi for anyone who wants to use it.

I personally love this add-on. There's not much to say, as it does a seemingly simple job very well: it makes an already pleasant experience a lot simpler, smoother, and even more enjoyable!

Thanks to Jeremy for creating these tools and making them free open source software.

Best regards,
D.

I can't get this to work since I upgraded to Firefox 23 on Ubuntu 12.04. Very frustrating, as I now have a wiki I can't edit.
