Uses too much memory or something, But evrytime I enable this extension, I keeep getting higher CPU loas, Firefox eats double memory. 3 thigs could happen if enabled: 1- I start firefox, imediately crashes for no reason. Keeps doing it. Only solution, restart PC. 2 - Firefox starts eating a lot of memory, I get double memory usage ONLY when this extension is enabled. 3 - Double CPU load, very, very quickly. If I don't check Task Manager or my Temp app, the PC will shutdown for ovrheaing. This is not a problem of Profile (tested it on a new profile, same results), nor is a PC problem - it happens on my Desktop PC W7 might be a little old, but it is well refrigerated, has lots of memory - but also happens on my laptop running W8.1 wich is a high en laptop, tons of memory and Core 7 processor (by the way, this laptop has a tiny amount of apps installed) So the problem is: the extension. Memory and CPU HOG. It is very sad, there is no other extension as good and complete like this, but can't use it. I sicerely hope tha the developer takes this into account, the problem gets worse with every new FF update. (by the way, also tried deleting a lot of notes and markers, no change). Please, this add on is a gem, do try to look into this problem..?
Two errors at startup of Firefox:
bitsMarkingCollection.init():TypeError: doc.defaultView.addEventListener is not a function
bitsArticleNavigation.init():TypeError: this.docShell is null
После обновления до 50 версии пришлось аддон удалить. Правда сначала пришлось долго искать виновника выскакивающей бяки. Долго искала. потому что меньше всего могла заподозрить именно Wired-Marker
Firefox 49.0 (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS),
It conflicts with addon Internote 3.0.2
The default shortcut Alt+X doesn't work and if you click from menu bar an error message would pop up :
TypeError: this.xmldoc is undefined.
Firefox 45 or earlier seems not to be influenced by this bug.
After I toggle the extension button, then popup a error message :
TypeError: this.xmldoc is undefined
Para mí un descubrimiento esencial. Me permite fijar ideas y tener una colección de páginas con el contenido marcado. Mi agradecimiento al inventor.
Just what I needed and then some.
I had tried it and red the tutorial. After half an hour, I understanded it a bit. After a couple of months, I tried to use it again. My shortcuts- I ordered to the markers by the first use- dont workt and I also haven't found any other way. I deinstall it now.
Having to select and drag the text to a small colored box on the side is just too tedious, especially if I have to highlight a lot of text. For a couple of highlights it's fine.
Suggestion: change the cursor to a colored highlighter so that it can be used multiple times without interruption and without having to drag anything (similar to MS Word, or Adobe Acrobat)
please include e10s support, great add-on thanks.
The best digital highlighter the Internet has seen. Please bring support for e10s

This is the most helpful add-on for me. I've been using it for two years now and I love it. It's working with all versions of FF. Thank you so much for this add-on and I hope you will make an update to this app(the last update is from 2011).
OMG !!!!! This is THE addon I was looking for a while .... It works perfectly with FF 37... Thank you !!!!
The conept is great. The current implementation makes the add-on useless.
I was previously using this add-on for legal and historical research. The add-on was a real time-saver for the first month that I used it. Thereafter, I noticed that my previous highlights were disappearing on many pages. See the issue described by another user here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/wired-marker/reviews/243185/ . The disappearing highlights were somewhat easy to restore as described by another user here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/wired-marker/reviews/406670/ . However, soon, right-clicking each cache entry (hundreds of them, and growing) and remapping to get back my highlights became more and more cumbersome to the point that the benefit of saved time dwindled away to almost nothing. A few days ago I updated to FF v36 and now the "remap" function has disappeared, leaving me with literaly hundreds of disappeared highlights and no reasonable way to get them back. The add-on was great in the beginning, but then decayed into complete worthlessness. The bottom line is that all the time initially saved by this add-on was all for naught, and, in fact, this add-on has ended up costing me more time than if I had never used it at all, as now I must either find a work-around to get my highlights back or find a different, reliable add-on and use it to perform my research all over again.
It was great while it lasted, but now I strongly recommend that no one waste their time with this add-on or, at the very least, that no one use it for anything important.
This app should be part of Firefox browser.
I have no idea why highlighters are not an automatic feature for FireFox. They are so important! I am just getting started, but it seems pretty good, so far. It is certainly better than anything else I've found.
1) Can it be that whatever folder I have selected automatically turns my mouse into that color of highlighter? Drag and drop is nice, but it's a bit much when working with a glossary.
2) If I highlight an entire section, I want to be able to remove highlighting from any tiny part in that section.
3) I want to save the whole page, with highlighting, to a certain folder and with a certain name. I also want to be able to open that page again and continue working on it without losing previous highlights and still being able to adjust all highlighting as desired.
Using Ctrl+highlight does not allow me to select multiple occurrences (something that can be dangerous, but time saving). It may be that it just does not like glossary tables. If I select something in one cell, then try to select anything else, even if it is in the same cell, it just selects the whole cell.
I know this requires a lot of work, but it'd be nice. You've an excellent add-on, here. :) Good work!
I can highlight stuff when disabling colors and fonts in web pages, but the highlights 4 THIS app will not show in that mode, making it useless, because I prefer 2 browse all pages while forcing black background and gold text (way easier on the eyes =) This is also the reason I use 'Mouse Gestures Redox' still = shows trails in this mode & has more options than competitors.
Great, but I miss integration with Firefox Sync.
very useful for marking as well as organizing .html, strongly recommend!
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.
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!
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?:
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!
