Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The keyboard commands are a key advantage over several of the other text highlighters, but otherwise the user interface is terrible. It is very cumbersome to clear a group of markers, cumbersome to highlight text with the mouse, and to choose different colors via the mouse and a context menu (right click). It is so cumbersome that I no longer use it and use another text highlighter and sometimes another add-on that saves/appends selected text to a file.

Great Research Tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi great tool, been using for years.

Having one small problem. Cannot get concordance sidebar to display. On FireFox 17.01 and latest WiredMarker. The side area shows but no colored marks to show where bookmarks are on page display. Otherwise would have been 5 star. I emailed you with a small video showing problem so hope we can find a solution and I can update here.

Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works really well. Two things:

I'd made some highlights on a page, when I went back to the same page later some content had been added and all the highlights had vanished. I had to right click > 'remap' each one in the sidebar, which worked fine. It would be good if there was a 'remap automatically' feature, or a 'remap all in folder' command, or 'remap all on this page' to save having to do each highlight individually.

Firefox Sync support would be nice.

Apart from that it's great!

Keep up the good work! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Previous review:"Could not get this to work reliably. Highlights would show up one time, then disappear next time. Contacted the developer but got no response. Switched to Diigo toolbar and am much happier."This happens to me sometimes also. I use the latest EnterPrise Build = Firefox ESR = 10.0.10. BUT: DIIGO is much less reliable. I have there 10.000 highlights and now it just does not work reliable anymore.

Does this work with your WiredMarker?:

This highlighter saved me! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I looked and looked for a pernanent highlighter to use when studying web pages and finally found this one. I wasn't crazy about the marker colors because they were too dark. Well I just figured out you can change the color of the highlighter! Now I LOVE this add-on. And if I put it in a sidebar, I only have to drag the text to the colored folder I want for the text.

Great add-on. Especially since Highlight isn't good anymore. I even use it with my pc and mac!

Can multiple caches of the same page be merged into one? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Each new loading of the same page requires its own cache, even though the generated cache folders are mostly identical by their content. Is there any way to make the program merge these cache folders into a single one to preserve space?

Disabling caching altogether doesn’t seem to fix the problem and is rather counter-intuitive.

Aside from that, the extension is simply great. There are several things that can still be improved (e.g. shortcuts, a feature for custom rgb colours, mht\html\pdf export, a non-intrusive integration with existing Scrapbook+ directory etc), but other then that, this is exactly what I was looking for for a very long time.

I work in social research and for years I've been trying to find a cross-platform solution for qualitative text analysis. I think Wired-Marker might be just what I needed. It can be easily customized to be used for content analysis of unstructured data.
I think the developers could advertise more the potential use of this addon for social research. I'm sure there would be quite a few people interested in this possibility.
Thanks a lot for this great addon!

Its a good concept for a permanent feature on firefox. Simulates reading on paper and taking notes that tag along through time and cyberspace. Needs some polishing and a little simplification before it can become an integral part of the firefox experience. Really love the handy shortcuts.

any tool for research and collecting data should fully support intuitive keyboard shortcuts. This is the only way for having a productive and smooth workflow.
This one lacks that and is so cluttered. Uninstalled

X-MARKS SYNC Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great Add-on; invaluable for highlighting information over a wide range of websites, and on a variety of different topics that can be categorized by the color of the highlight, and even more invaluable, being able to search for things by any keyword that pops into mind...that part I love!

By the way, the ability to search ALL data fields is great! The lack of this capability in Mozilla bookmarks drives me crazy! The fact that only the name filed is indexed in Mozilla bookmarks, but not the description field is really stupid. Usually the important keywords you use in a search are in the description field not the name field, yet Mozilla does not index that field!!!??? Maybe you guys could make an add-on that would do that!! Please??, Please?? :)

The one thing that is lacking in WIRED MARKER however is TRUE syncing. The syncing solution described on your website is not a true syncing solution since it really is just manually copying the data file from one computer to the other, with all the perils and inconveniences that make true syncing a much more desirable solution.

I think there is a simple way to make this work with X-Marks ... I use another add-on that also uses sqlite called QuickFox Notes, and it syncs with Xmarks simply by linking the local data file to a bookmark file/folder so that Xmarks can see it. I'm no programmer, but how hard could it be for you to do that? If it could TRULY sync, and do it with the simple click of the X-Marks button, this would be a 5-star add-on for sure!

Though not a big deal, the other thing I think could be improved is to make right-click functions easier & faster by doing away with the TWO submenus (Wired Marker>Marker>Markers). Maybe there already is a way to configure it but your preference GUI is a bit confusing to me. ALl I know is that it would be a lot quicker if there was just one submenu to navigate through instead of two, and on a small laptop, it's a real pain to carefully move the cursor through the two submenus without having it close out and having to know what I'm saying? When you are highlighting information, you want to be moving fast!

Honestly, how does anyone expect to learn anything on the Internet without this add-on?
