The developer fixed the problem mentioned in my review for version 3.4, and 3.4.1 now works fine with sync.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.1). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Version 3.4 no longer works with FF sync. If you mark a page of links (like in a bulletin board) as visited using the "mark all links visited" feature, they do not show up as visited on another computer after a sync. It happened right around when I finally updated to FF8, and persisted with FF9, and not realizing that Link Visitor had updated, I thought it was a problem with FF and not Link Visitor.
However, I then noticed that Link Visitor had updated from 3.3 to 3.4, so I reverted to version 3.3 just to be sure, and it was working just fine again.
So, something in the changes to 3.4 caused the visited history records to not propigate via FF sync. They stay marked as visited on the original computer, it just never makes it across to the synced computer.
For now, I'll stick with 3.3. If this gets fixed, I'd give it a full 5 stars.
I've loved this add-on since it was a Mozilla Weave beta. It has definately evoled into a stable, five star add-on. Until the current release, that is. Without the status bar icon, I was forced to fall back to version 1.3 until it comes back. I know I can still force a manual sync from the tools menu, but I have no indication that it is still running or has completed. I don't need all the information that 1.3 provided, I actually found that a bit of overkill. It would, however, be nice to have a visual representation that things are working, possibly by changing the icon color. Red for not connected, Green for up to date, Blue for updates pending, Yellow for sync in progress, or something to that effect. It's still a good add-on, it's just not great anymore.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4).
