Is the text color drawn from KDE settings?
Looks good, needs a tweak. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Just installed this addon, not too pleased with the dim color used for the text... is the color data taken from my KDE settings?
@danyel: Have you tried: view menu -> toolbars -> addons bar?
@eigh78all: FF 4.0 is released for only one day, and everything is not yet up to date.
@Ecchichuu: It's always something.
PS I'm not related to this project outside of using this theme.
NOT just a bookmark manager. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Lousy idea to call this a bookmark manager - it isn't a simple bookmark manager.
No matter what it is, if you forget your password, this service refuses to send anything to the registered email address, and instead, your only option is to LOSE EVERYTHING, bookmarks and all, if you want a password reset. Splendid, totally UNCONVENTIONAL from what the rest of the world does about passwords. And now, for your further entertainment, Synch is going to be embedded into FF4.0. Such a stupid idea!
Why in the world is Synch DESIGNED to be unable to send a password REMINDER like EVERY OTHER passworded site on the internet?
And before I get off the soap box, reader, you will need to enter the correct password EVERY TIME Synch is updated. I sure hope you can remember your password -
-for all of eternity,
-after EVERY update to Synch,
-for EVERY new device you add.
PS, a few thousand people posted in development forums that they wanted Synch to save their desktop and bookmarks. Yet a few MILLION people have not heard about the proposed changes of embedding this junk addon into the browser. Way to go, Moz. Ask 2 people and irritate a thousand with the responses of the 2 people. Moz, if you choose to fire off a survey, be SURE you explain the password restriction AND explain the WHOLE function to EACH survey participant.

FFsync 1.4.1 working ok for me under Kubuntu 10.04LTS (x86_64) with FF 3.6.6 and I'm using the Mozilla server for syncing ONLY bookmarks (using custom settings). I have uploaded bookmarks from a 64 bit Kubuntu Linux box and synced down to a Kubuntu 10.04LTS 32 bit netbook. One hint for DSL/ADSL users: my bookmarks exported as an HTML file is 729k bytes, takes forever to transfer JUST the bookmarks. Why do I say this? Click to close Firefox, and you will need to WAIT for the sync to complete. Same problem for any upload, but you might not realize that this upload begins when you are quitting.
Anyways, the extension works for MY needs.

Xmarks is beginning to be a chore.
Xmarks is locking up Firefox when I quit (when Xmarks is disabled I get no lockup); when I have to install Xmarks for any reason, the unavoidable 'signup now' process fails when run under Linux, leaving remnants of the 'signup' window elements for many restarts of Firefox; large bookmark files take forever to download over because the bookmarks seem to have multiple paragraphs of 'descriptions' that occupy more space than the bookmark alone would need without the description (therefore, you must manually edit each bookmark to remove the descriptions so nothing gets stored, and thus future downloads will not need a half hour over ADSL); adding a new bookmark needs several seconds for suggested tags to be downloaded from Xmarks (otherwise, YOUR tags won't be saved); the Xmarks login password is only stored if you allow Firefox to store all passwords (therefore, all your other passworded sites will now need password entries to be denied, just so Xmarks can save its ONE password) and so on. Great concept, now needs a different implementation.

Well, it was a good tool when I used it for FF 2.X, but I need compatibility with Firefox 3.X and forward. RobertJ seems to be missing. I hope all is well with RobertJ.

MOST websites only use Flash to present moving images of 'active logos', I really appreciate that with Flashblock, I can NOW disable useless time and bandwidth wasting pseudo-television commercials by DEFAULT. Should I enter a site that actually presents useful content, I can always activate each Flash element just that one time to see what it is about. If I revisit or reload a web page where I activated a Flashblocked element, upon returning to that webpage it still will be blocked, as I want it to be.
Exactly what we ALL need to help reduce internet traffic bottlenecks.

After more than a year of supplying me with a valuable service coupled to a unique and SIMPLE Firefox extension, Foxmarks has decided to move away from the simpler functions for which they became so popular. Foxmarks wants to add more features and those features will definitely affect my user experience negatively.
Foxmarks is getting upgraded to be a new "Xmarks". This is clearly an effort to step away from the "Fox" which made this tool so popular, and the support for my statement comes from Xmarks adding support for Safari and Chrome, browsers I do NOT use. Thus, in order to NOT alienate those new users, you change your name to drop the Fox portion. Hey, don't let the screen door hit you on the way out.
Today, Xmarks is beginning to add features which I will not take the time to deal with.
NEW in Xmarks: bookmark 'tags'. Bookmark tags are not useful to me since I organize my own bookmarks in a manner that I prefer. Me, I do not want tags no matter where they were originated (Firefox 3.X has added bookmark tags, but I do not want those tags, either). I already expend enough effort in browsers and whatnot, trying to keep my computer experience from alienating me, lets not add to it.
NEW in Xmarks: Automatic bookmark sorting. Me, I don't want auto sorting. I JUST said I take the time to organize my bookmarks, remember?
Xmarks has thus far stepped on that toe 2 times.
NEW in Xmarks: Automatic Alphabetizing. I don't want automatic alphabetizing, that is not the way I sort my bookmarks. Stomping on that toe won't help.
Third time is a charm. Buh bye.
The added product features will now require far too much time from this user, time I do not wish to expend. I will not take the time to familiarize myself with new UI controls only to discover that the new features cannot be defeated in the manner I wish. I will not want to search out the ways to defeat the new methodology using about:config. If I'm going to expend any effort, it will be to get a simpler tool than Xmarks to do the SAME job.
