100% WORKING WITH FIREFOX 43.0.1 *** THANK YOU *** Rated 5 out of 5 stars
All working 100%
Thank you so much for your continued support with this add-on
any one got it Working without and other add-on? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
does anyone know how to get this add-on working with Firefox v43.0.1 without any other add-on? I am tired of using the add-on "NEW CUSTOM TAB" or others just so that this add-on will work?
When i select the page i want it to go to open new empty tab with this URL "about:viewmarks?folder=773" but it does not work?
Why has there been no updates to this fantastic add-on.. i am lost without this add-on it is simply what firefox should be like with its bookmarks..
Please Michael can you update this add-on.
Partial Workaround for this Rated 4 out of 5 stars
@mkupper - if the new-tab URL that you want to use is the same as your homepage then use the "Homepage" option. For example, New Tab Override does not work if I use a file:// style custom URL. However, it does work if my Firefox homepage is file://... and I use the "Homepage" option in New Tab Override.
I appreciate that that will work but doing this will then disable my actual Homepage which i have... I don't want it to open straight to my custom URL which is the "VIEWMARKS BOOKMARK ADD-ON" page.I still want it to go to my homepage and then when i open a new tab it goes to my "VIEWMARKS BOOKMARK ADD-ON" page as previously....
I wish that the coder of VIEWMARKS would fix his add-on to work correctly too.
Please Sören Hentzschel can you fix this issue even making a temporary update until you get it working 100%.
Still not working with Viewamrks "about:viewmarks?folder=773" URL Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for your reply... i kind of understand what you are saying but the add-on "Custom New Tab" works still with the updated version of Firefox i am using it now.. i prefer yours but that one works for now. Can you temporarily add the option in your version that you mention about validation and that will allow us users that want to keep your add-on to make it temporarily work and then once you have time to make the full update release that again? this would keep us activly on your update add-on rather than changing and moving on from it?
Still wont work with Viewmarks "about:viewmarks?folder=773" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Stopped Working with Firefox v43.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Since i have updated to Firefox v43.0.1 this add-on has stopped working. Can you please update this so that functionality is back..
This has to be hands down the best working version for Firefox and i would hate to see it stop functioning...
Job well done and keep up the great work.
In the mean time untill your update is released, im reverting back to Custom New Tab which still works.. not happy but i need it for my browser atm.
Look forward to your update asap.
Works Great on Firefox 41.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you for this add-on.. finally an add-on i can use with ViewMarks that makes ViewMarks load as my new tab page...
Job well done....now i can use my Viewmarks add-on again...
Please keep this updated as much as possible....
Just a quick note i have noticed a small delay in opening the new tab when the add-on is active.just ever so lightly delayed but i am getting picky......
Found a temporary Solution Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I have found that if you put the url that is in ViewMarks for example....about:viewmarks?folder=3 straight into the Firefox Homepage url section, Firefox will open the ViewMarks homepage of your choice rather than a Firefox Homepage...
Only drawback with this is that you don't have a homepage to go to temporarily as pressing on the home page button in Firefox brings you always back to the ViewMarks folders that you have chosen, this is of course until Michael hopefully fixes this add-on to work with the changes made in Firefox 41.0.
P.S. Have found a new add-on that will let this function correctly once installed in FF 41.0...
It's called CUSTOM NEW TAB 3.0
hope this helps....
Pressing Back button wont go back to previous bookmark Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I'm not sure what has happened here but but now when I press the back button too quickly on my browser it does not return back to the original page as per my bookmark setting in your app, sometimes it still wont go back to the URL i have selected even if i hit the back button slowly on my mouse...
Its as if your add-on doesn't always pickup the back button correctly....
can this be fixed?
This fixed my Viewmarks ADD-ON Rated 5 out of 5 stars
thank you this has restored my Viewmarks add-on when i open a new tab now i see my Viewmarks add-on again!!!

Firefox you suck at this stuff, Please leave all these new silly enhancements alone for F**k Sakes...or at least make it an option for us to decide weather we want this to be an active option....
Anyway thank you Sören for making a workaround so quickly you rock !!!
BROKEN in FIREFOX v41 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have found a temporary fix until this add-on is updated to work with Firefox 41....Hopefully Michael is watching and will post a fix quickly....
HERE GOES GUYS......
Mozilla removes option to change New Tab Page from Firefox
By Martin Brinkmann on June 28, 2015 in Firefox - Last Update: June 28, 2015 114
Users of the Firefox web browser have had options until now to replace the default New Tab page of Firefox with a custom one using the built-in preference browser.newtab.url.
It was for instance possible to set it to a blank page to block the New Tab page functionality in Firefox which became popular after the introduction of a redesigned New Tab page in Firefox, or to set it to a favorite web service or website instead which would then be opened whenever a new tab page was created in the browser.
Mozilla noted some time ago that the useful feature was abused by companies who replaced the New Tab page in the browser with a custom version, for instance during software installations as third-party offers but also in malicious ways directly without opt-out.
The browser.newtab.url preference has no exposed UI, is not really supported, and is abused by search hijackers. We should remove it and encourage people using a non-default new tab page to install an add-on instead.
That's why the organization made the decision to remove the preference browser.newtab.url from Firefox 41.
disable firefox newtab page
While it is certainly improving user protection, as hijackers won't be able to use the preference anymore to modify the new tab page in Firefox using it, it is removing an option from Firefox that some users used to customize the browser's New Tab Page.
It is unfortunate that the change is introduced at a time in which Mozilla is facing criticism over recent New Tab page changes that introduces advertisement on the page.
The change, which just rolled out in the most recent Nightly version of the web browser affects users who modified the preference manually or through add-ons. Those who have customized the New Tab page will notice that the customization does not work anymore after they upgrade Firefox to a version in which the preference has been removed.
Firefox users who fell victim to tools that changed the New Tab page automatically without their consent benefit from this as the New Tab page is reset automatically as a consequence.
Some add-ons that provide functionality to change the New Tab page in Firefox may have stopped working however and while it is likely that some will be updated to restore it, it will make add-ons unusable who are not updated, for instance because they have been abandoned by their authors.
The functionality to change the New Tab page in Firefox is still available to add-on developers who can create or modify extensions for the browser to provide users with that functionality.
This is not the first time that long-standing preferences have been removed from Firefox. Mozilla removed the popular keyword.url parameter in Firefox 23 for instance which allowed you to set a different search provider in the address bar than the one used by the search form of the browser.
Mozilla wanted add-on developers to re-introduce the functionality to Firefox for users who made use of it back then. The organization has the same stance this time.
The Firefox add-on New Tab Override [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-override/] has been created recently to re-introduce the functionality in Firefox 41 and later.
firefox new tab page override
Install the add-on in Firefox using the link above.
Open about:addons after installation and locate it in the list of extensions.
Click the options button next to it.
Replace the about:newtab resource in the URL field on the page that opens with another url that you want to use.
final steps Rated 5 out of 5 stars
hi Life artist....
What you need to do now is go into your viewmarks folder... mine is in the folder
in there you will find the file viewmakrs.js.....
once you see this file open it by clicking with your right mouse button and hit EDIT option....
now go to the link that NRR has posted and open this up and copy all the conent of that link by right clicking in the browser and select the option "SELECT ALL" and then "COPY"..
now go back to the EDITOR that you have open and select all the txt in that editor and delete it all and then hit paste with your right mouse button to copy all the content from the web browser into that editor file and then hit save...
you can then exit everything and all should be fine....
hope this helps
Although it would be easier for everyone if Michael Koch could release a quick update which includes this quick easy fix for everyone....
