Old Add Bookmark Behavior

breaks "Bookmark this page" (Ctrl-D) in FF43 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

TL;DR: disable/remove this extension. It isn't needed anymore as it appears the "old" (FF2) behavior is how things work again.

(It is known that this doesn't work with FF40+)

I've used this since switching to Firefox 3; when I added a duplicate bookmark, it was because I wanted a duplicate bookmark. This extension allowed me to add duplicate bookmarks.

I just updated from FF40.0.2 to FF43.0.4. With this update, clicking "Bookmark this page" no longer worked. I could add bookmarks by drop and drag in the bookmarks sidebar, or into the bookmark toolbar, but not with CTRL-D, the star, or the bookmarks menu.

Opening the browser console showed an exception in this extension whenever I used one of the failing options.

The good news: after I disabled this extension and found I could still add a bookmark if it already exists by drop and drag, and that it didn't remove the bookmark from whereever it already was in my bookmarks. Further, if I used "bookmark all tabs" an already-bookmarked page was duplicated in the new folder, and not removed from whereever it might have existed in my bookmarks.

These behaviors seem to be the default now and I'm happy with that.

The only behavior that I think this fixed is that "Delete bookmark" from the Bookmark menu continues to delete all the instances of this page in your bookmarks. I just don't use that, and instead right-click and delete the specific bookmark.

I gave this 5 stars because while it worked, it was invaluable to me.

New Tab from Location Bar

Extrememely useful and working on FF39+ again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I almost always want to open a new tab when typing a URL, and this means I don't have to hit ALT when entering one. It's a small thing, but it simplifies my day.

This has been fixed for FF 39+ since July 2015, but the fix was not released until Jan 2016.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2016011501). 

Extension List Dumper

1.5.3 working on 40.0 and 42.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I continue to use the unsigned 1.5.3 version successfully on Linux and Windows using 40.0.2 and 42.0. Seems to work just fine.

Classic Theme Restorer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know what I would do without this add-on. Thank you!

Meanwhile, the changes to FireFox make it more and more annoying to use.

Toggle Word Wrap

Working great on FF28 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

My only wish is that there was some indicator at the end of a line that was wrapped.

Download Manager Tweak

1.0.2 now working with FF26 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I held off updating to FF26 because this wasn't working yet! Thank you for the update (1.0.2). With that I've finally upgraded to FireFox 26.0. I wasn't willing to lose DMT.

I'll add back the star when "Clear List" comes back.

[I've not had a problem, but other people have reported to make sure to clear the checkbox for "Open the Download Manager after a delay" in the DMT options to avoid multiple windows from being opened]

OutSidebar

I still use this on FireFox 26 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While it has been listed as "not available" for many versions, it continues to work just fine. I've used it on FF versions up to 26.0.

Download Manager Tweak

Very useful! I miss it in FF26 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've also reverted to FF25 so that DMT continues to work.

Redirect Bypasser

Working great on FF24 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My old favorite "jumplink" finally stopped working on FF22 (even though it wasn't officially listed as supported since 4.0). I just installed this and it is working great. Thanks!
