4.5 Stars out of 5
- by Patrick Larkin, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5I only use this in Thunderbird, and I use it a lot: I can double click a string and make it open a search in almost any web-app (for example, a trouble-ticket system). It is a shame Mozilla turned off this extension for Thunderbird 60.
- by Firefox user 12926714, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5That's it, mate!!!
I was looking for such an addon for a very long time. It's so easy to use and it makes surfing a lot more convienent. And the best: it's not to difficult to be extended with new links! Just go to any site, insert any term you are searching for, copy the following link, insert it in the empty box at the bottom of the settings, replace the item you were looking for with a "*" and press save ("Anwenden"). Sometimes you have to restart FF.
Well done, thumbs up, five stars.
- by -, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Very good options but way too much submenus.. there are this possibilities usually:
- popup small icon - 1 click
- right click menu item - 2 clicks
- right click menu submenu item - 3 clicks
- right click menu submenu submenu item - 4 clicks <- we are HERE
that's way too much. the submenus appear on the left right, usually it all closes before retry. please move the action items higher in menu hierarchy, definitely don't need two submenus to open in new tab or here. Menu Control - Hide ... options doesn't help reduce this mess.
It won't process selection correctly if text around and multiple links are selected. Resulting link will be text mess.
Thanks.Firefox forces extension to have all their context menu additions in a submenu, this cannot be changed. I am confused as why you are having to click through the options, you should just be able to move the mouse, and it shouldn't vanish halfway through navigating.
For support, issues or suggestions please contact me or visit https://github.com/fnxweb/urllink/issues — in particular, see https://github.com/fnxweb/urllink/issues/5 for reducing the sub-menu count.
- by Martin Arndt, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Update to my previous review (now deleted by myself due to being obsolete):
It's amazing what Neil did with his take on rewriting URL Link as a WebExtension.
Thank you so much for putting that much effort into it! :)
My claim about your switch to Chrome originated from one of our direct mails where I read it as "I'll switch to Chrome soon" - at least, I thought so.
I apologize for misinterpreting your mail. It's good to know you're sticking with the hot fox. ;)
Lastly, as a suggestion, I'd like to ask if we (maybe via an option) can eliminate the new sub-sub menu, i. e. instead of:
URL Link -> Open Selection in New Tab, Help & Preferences -> Unaltered, [my defined targets]
I'd like to simply have
URL Link -> Unaltered, [my defined targets]
- by Firefox user 13471394, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5This could've been very useful but we still can't edit preferences.Preference editing is in the current beta which you can download from this site if you like. Some users are having trouble re-ordering the lists at the moment, which is why I've not yet fully released it.
Update: preference editing went into version 3.1.0.
- by Firefox user 13472805, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks for updating to work with Firefox 57. My only wish is that it opened the link in a new tab (i.e. when I want to look up the definition of a word in a news article in Wikipedia, I'd like the article to remain open in another tab).
- by David Fleiss, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I've been using this extension for years, and it's one of the things that's keeping me from switching to multi-process. I'd like to encourage the developer to keep at his work rewriting this extension for compatibility with FF 57+.
- by Firefox user 13211210, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I love this add-on. I have no idea why Mozilla hasn't implemented this into their browser natively. I hope the developer c̶o̶m̶e̶s̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶F̶i̶r̶e̶f̶o̶x̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ brings it to 57+ compatibility.
Edit: Whoops. As he mentions below he is still using Firefox. Sorry about that!Thanks, dunno where this story of my leaving has come from, I love Firefox on both desktop and mobile.
I am still hoping to rewrite for multi process before it's too late, but it *is* a rewrite and I've not yet found the time.
- by vasu kurapati, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 51. I have some set of unique links more than 10k when the employee clicks the link it will open the customer's profile in new tab.
2. In address bar employee has to add "#tab-5" at the end of URL; every time to mp in to "Tab No 5" of my webpage.
by adding "#tab-5" employee will automatically jump to tab no 5 so that the user will not need to click on tab no 5 available in my webpage.
Rating and Writing a review
reason behind i guess this is the only extension which is very closer to my query through out chrome and firefox extension store
This extension works only on plain texts my request it should work for links also.....
- by tom, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5this add ons is one of useful add-ons that came on my minds. I doubt whether anyone will make this add-ons, but there is, I found it here, thank dude, you make my life easier. sorry for my bad english
- by Vince's Codes, 5 years agoRated 2 out of 5By installing the extension I was expecting to see the windows links (\\host\...) becoming clickeable but no, you still have to select the text, use the right click and then select an action in the menu.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoI'm sorry you felt you had to give a 2 start review because my plugin didn't do what you expected, but it does work as intended. Updating the link on the fly wouldn't help anyone, since the submenu options are customisable (you can open a selection with a given prefix, or search option, e.g.), and via the menu this is immediate. Updating the link from that choice instead of just doing it would then require a second operation.
- by Firefox user 10193203, 7 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great! We use it at work all the time. I'm looking for something like this for Chrome as well, for an employee. Thanks for the add-on!
