- by ast, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This addon is really close to be perfect. Easy, intuitive, sleek. It works like a charm and suits my needs quite well.
However one thing I need seems to be missing: synchronization. When I move my bookmarks to the Private Bookmarks folder, they are not longer available on my other machines.
I would like to see an option to sync my private bookmarks, just as any others. Maybe save the encrypted bookmarks in the firefox account? When accessing them from another machine, the password should match to open them.
There is already some import/export mechanism, but I need automatic sync. Still for a version of 0.0.12 this is really good stuff.
Thanks for the reply. You're right regarding my rating. I look forward to the new feature. Keep up the good work ;)
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThanks for the feedback! An option to opt-in for syncing is a feature that is definitely on my radar. Unfortunately, the tools Firefox makes available to extension developers impose a size limit on the amount of data that can be synced, and also do not make any promises regarding sync speed and frequency. At this moment these drawbacks prevent me from implementing this feature.
P.S. Please do not rate down an add-on based on things it doesn't claim to do. Add-ons should be judged based on what they do claim to do and how well they do it. If you find a bug or wish to voice a suggestion please file an issue here: https://github.com/rharel/webext-private-bookmarks/issues I review suggestions there regularly. Thanks again for your feedback, it is appreciated!
- by GeorgeA, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is a BRILLIANT extension! For some time, I have utilised an over-complicated method of private bookmark control, that works, but is not all that neat and tidy. This is perfect....you unlock, and bookmarks are there. You lock, and they are gone. I'm guessing there is some kind of encrypted container somewhere, probably in the Firefox profile folder. It really works, and I love it!
- by Firefox user 13426475, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great module. Works like a charm.Simple to use. I felt lucky to discover it since the one I used just before stopped working with the new version of Firefox. I do not regret this new choice !.
- by Firefox user 13469712, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Exactly what I needed against my fear of embarrassing situations and it is working with the most recent Firefox Version (59.0a1).
In the lock state the Addon even keeps the bookmarks out of the autocomplete in the address bar.
- by Sam, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I think I logged in with an old account when I last reviewed this, but was very happy with the developers response.
It’s great to see this is open source!
Reply to dev via email:
That was an amazingly quick and concise reply, thank you!
NIST recommends the MINIMUM maximum password length to be 64 characters, I would recommend setting the maximum password length to at least that.
The great thing about long password is not just that they’re harder to crack, it’s easier to remember them and make them unique by using passphrases, for example:
“John walked to the store to get some milk” is easy to remember and actually quite secure. (NOTE: no one use this pass phrase, it’s just an example!)
Thank you so much for providing a link to the library it uses, it gives me so much confidence that you’re open about what’s being used and how etc...
