  • I'm rating this 5/5 because it's awesome and mandatory these days.

    Question. Is it possible to add an option to hide the toolbar icon (and any other UI reference to this extension) if "Disable Private Bookmarks outside of private browsing" is enabled?

    Thank you.
    Unfortunately Firefox does not allow extensions to do this. What you could do is remove the button yourself through the right click -> customize menu and access the extension through keyboard shortcuts. By default this is Alt+Shift+8.
  • So far this plugin is great! THANKS YOU SIR. It behaves just as promised. Just some questions or ideas:
    - Is there a keyboard shortcut for creating private bookmarks?
    - When bookmarks unlocked in private Window they become visible in normal session (as long as private session is unlocked)
    - ...
    - By default it is Ctrl+Shift+8, as mentioned in the description. You can customize this through Firefox' add-ons menu -> gear icon -> manage extension shortcuts.
    - Yes that is true. While unlocked Private Bookmarks behave just like any other bookmark.
    - Feel free to ask any further questions on the issue tracker (https://github.com/rharel/webext-private-bookmarks/issues)
  • Great add-on!! But I got a quick question - I currently use Ctrl + Shift + Space to activate the unlock menu, but what about macOS? Thank you!
    I'm not sure I understand the question - maybe because I've never owned a Mac. It should be possible to customize your shortcuts through Firefox' add-ons menu -> gear icon -> manage extension shortcuts.
  • I've just installed this so not had a chance to use it yet. I'm trying to move the "Private Bookmarks" folder from Other Bookmarks to the Bookmarks Toolbar but it doesn't let me. I can't click, hold and drag the folder there. Nor does right-clicking do anything. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong. Any advice?

    EDIT: Yes, thank you rharel, the cmd shift B method worked! Not sure why Firefox doesn't let me do it any other way
    Does dragging work for other folders? Either way sounds like a Firefox issue to me. P.S. you can always try moving it through the bookmarks window (Ctrl+Shift+B)
  • Worked great but forgot to lock it before closing Firefox. Lost a couple hundred bookmarks the first day. Live and learn
    Firefox periodically backups your bookmarks. See if you can restore them through Ctrl+Shift+B => Import and Backup => Restore
  • can't work in 69.0
  • Great add on. However, all of a sudden my password doesn't work so I can't access any of the bookmarks
    Apparently it's a rare bug that pops up under specific circumstances for some users. I have not yet been able to reproduce it on my end so unfortunately all I can advise is to export backups of your private bookmarks once in a while so you can restore them if you encounter this again. Thanks for the feedback.
