Context Menu Image Saver

Great Add-On! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you choobin!

Very nice contribution. Thank you very much indeed for your time. I previously used SIF, SI, DI II and "Image Toolbar". Now, I started using CMIS. It has a better thinking behind it, compared to others.

I would like to report one possible bug and make 4 suggestions for your consideration. I know that there are many requests. I hope you can have time to code for these. I don't know how to code. Otherwise I would try to help. Sorry...

The Bug:

After creating a "Submenu" and several "Item"s, i need to click on "Up" button for "Item"s to make them "Submenu Item" of the "Submenu". I don't know if this method was your intention at first place or not but this is a little bit confusing. There must be a better way of assigning an "Item" to a "Submenu" as a "Submenu Item".

The Suggestions

1. I strongly suggest a toolbar which appears when you hoover the image (this toolbar was implemented in -now obsolete- "Image Toolbar" add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/image-toolbar/ ).
1.1. Toolbar will appear for a few seconds when hoovering. and then disappear even though you keep hoovering.
1.2. Toolbar must be a small thing not a giant context-menu-like thing.
1.3. User can turn the toolbar feature on and off.
1.4. Toolbar should convey one or more buttons.
1.5.1. If you have time; you can let user decide how many buttons there will be.
1.5.2. Default button is "Save".
1.5.2. There may be other buttons like "Save to <Item>" or "Show Image" and "Open Saved Folder".
1.5.3. Four (max 5) buttons are enough I think.
1.6. Save button, which is the default button, will do the job of Ctrl+RMB
1.7. If you still have time, you can let user to move the place of the buttons on the toolbar (left or right to each other) just like moving the "Item"s up and down on the context menu. (this nuance will make your add-on more chic and more cool)

2. For renaming the files, clipboard also should be available as -for example- %CB.

3. For renaming the files, there must be "#" wildcard, hyphen-minus and space characters. for example:

"Equus ferus %CB - ####"

Then, if I copy "caballus" to clipboard and keep saving images into related "Item" the images will be saved as folows (say they are jpeg):

Equus ferus caballus - 0001.jpg
Equus ferus caballus - 0002.jpg
Equus ferus caballus - 0003.jpg
Equus ferus caballus - 0004.jpg
...
Equus ferus caballus - 0009.jpg
Equus ferus caballus - 0010.jpg
Equus ferus caballus - 0011.jpg
...

4. While using "#" wildcard or maybe in general, if there is a numbered item already, it should increment (say there is already Equus ferus caballus - 0012.jpg in the folder):

Equus ferus caballus - 0012.jpg (this was already in the folder)
Equus ferus caballus - 0013.jpg (our 12th file got the number 13 instead of 12 by incrementing itself)

This (4th) nuance will make your add-on a robust one.

These are my suggestions. I hope they make sense and hope you can have time to implement them.

Thank you already...

P.S: sorry for bad English.

Save Image in Folder

Two Suggestions/Requests Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is greate. I had previously reviewed it a long time ago.

But even though it is a wonderful contribution, I stopped using it for two reasons. I had mentioned those suggestions in my previous comment. But unfortunately the developer didn't make it. I just wanted to suggest the same two issues again. I hope the developer takes the time to implement it -if possible.

First problem is that, for some of the images, the add-on cannot detect the type of image and those images are named as "unknown.ext."

This annoys me. Because after using such an add-on for automisation, manually changing the file extension is frustrating. This is why I stopped using it. Firefox knows what type the image is and renders the image correctly. So, it has to be possible to catch the type of the image.

Second problem is the way the saving action is initiated.

This add-on must be able to put an image toolbar or at leasst just one "save button" when hoovering the image just like the "image toolbar" add-on. (see: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/image-toolbar/)

If this button appears on the image when hoovering, there is no need for navigating through menus etc. Just one click.

I already appreciate the developer. SIF is a great effort. But I would like the developer to implement my suggestions since I don't know how to code.

Please Achim Seufert, consider my suggestions.

Xmarks Sync

No More Favicon Support Rated 1 out of 5 stars

xmarks was the best add-on for firefox. now they stopped favicon suport. favicon support had made it a champion. for now, it's useless to install xmarks. can use firefox snc which deosn't support favicons either.

there is need for a favicon supported bookmark manager.

Save Image in Folder

Some Issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is far better image saver. what makes this add-on great is that it:

... allows renaming files for saving them
... allows using multiple folders for saving the image
... allows separate renaming rules for each image saving folder

but there is one problem which should be fixed, that it

... cannot detect the type of image if the image is named as "unknown.ext"

this "unknown image type" problem should be fixed. if the author fixes the problem then there will be no need for any other add-on regarding image saving.

for even better perforance two things are necessary:

1. add-on must be able to put an image toolbar (ie. save button) when hoovering the image just like "image fetcher" and/or "image toolbar"
2. add-on must be firefox 4 compatible.

the best part is that it has favicon support. keeps your bookmarks colorful, more understandable, and fun.

Favicon Picker 3

What i needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

favicon is a top priority if you are using bookmarks.
