Xmarks Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm having the same problem with Firefox freezing. How do I disable or get rid of Xmarks!!? I ran a malware and scanned my computer yesterday and when I was done Xmarks showed up and wants me to sign on or register. Very frustrating.

locks up Firefox and freezes Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Really wanted to like this add-on. I liked X-Marks so much in fact that I bought a year of their premium support. But as others have stated, using this add-on just locks Firefox up and causes it to freeze for minutes on end. I've had to disable it to get Firefox to work right. I was able to get it to sync, but I couldn't use Firefox because of the freezing so I've disabled it when I don't need to sync it. Hopefully you guys will fix this issue soon. It's a great service besides that (well I have some minor issues with their iPhone app but that's another story), so if they'd just fix this freezing it'd be great. The error warning I get with this issue is:


Xmarks stopped working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I like it and worked fine until the last FF updates. Do not know which one as I just noticed. So I add to the chorus of please fix it. It does not have any bad influence on FF but it simply stays stuck in having bookmarks to sync and fails to sync. Thanks.

Won't sync and causes firefox to freeze Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've used xmarks for a very long time. Normally there isn't an issue, but for a while now, I can not sync. It will simply throws a script error every time, and freezes up firefox. It works fine on other browsers, but on my favorite browser, it fails. Even when I've able to finally sync, it will cause firefox to freeze, and force me to restart firefox.

Firefox not syncing Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have three computers with Xmarks not syncing. 2 are running Windows 7, 1 brand new with Windows 10. All are running FF 43 and none of the computers will sync. No problems with FF 42 that I know of. Any suggestions how to fix this?

Worked fine until. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been using Xmarks for years and usually don't have any issues. But just recently had to remove it from my machines, because the default actions are so different from Firefox to Chrome. Installing it on a Chrome browser wiped out my bookmarks.

Does not work with FF 43.0.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A substantial slow-down registered since the one before last version. Does not work with FF 43.0.1 at all. It is not fair towards paying subscribers eager to keep all their boomars up-to-date across all platforms. Please look into the issue asap.

What specifically doesn't work?

Thanks for the report, our team is running Firefox 43 on in-house test devices without encountering these issues. We'd like to know more about the issues you're encountering.

ostatnia wesja Rated 1 out of 5 stars

co sie dzieje z dodatkiem? bardzo wolno nastepuje synchronizacja. trzeba anulowac synchro i wznawiac. blokuje firefoxa przez co uzywanie staje sie niemozliwe system windows 10 i firefox 42x64. korzystam z x marks od kilku lat i takiego problemu nigdy nie bylo. Z uwagi na takie bledy usunolem swoje konto i zalozylem na nowo drugie. Dalej to samo. Uzywanie xmarks z takim bugiem jest nie mozliwe! POPRAWCIE TO.

Как всегда есть но.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Незнаю с чем именно связано такое поведение но Xmarks упорно отказывается отображать открытые вкладки из других браузеров FF, зато открытые в Chrome отображает на ура, а в Chrome отображаются открытые на всех устройствах.. и на сайте отображаются все браузеры и их открытые вкладки.. тоесть проблемма только в дополнении к FF, лично мне такое достовляет массу неудобств так как FireFox для меня основной браузер..
ПС Пожелания: Поправить бы ошибку описаную выше, еще сделали б отдельную кнопку "Удаленные вкладки" или похоже, с отображением в выпадающем списке открытых на других устройствах, закрытых на других и локальных вкладок

Xmarks (v syncing - very slow Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have had the Firefox v42 add on installed for two weeks and used it on the work (Win7 32) and home (Win7 64) PC.
Firstly installed it at work and had no problems but at home whenever I would open FF it started syncing and went on for ages, sorry hours. I did reinstall the add on but without any improvement. Now I have no patience any more and taking the Xmarks out.

Категорически рекомендую к использованию Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Лет 5 синхронизирую закладки между Firefox и Chromium с помощью Xmarks, а также использую его для восстановления закладок после переустановки (ОС/браузера): за исключением одного, может, двух случаев, когда понадобилось ручное вмешательство, всё работает просто превосходно.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly, it's the best way to sync all my bookmarks between computers and browsers.

Works horribly Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This would be a great product if it only worked. However, it does far more damage than anything else. I use three browsers across 2 computers an iPhone and iPad. Xmarks consistently doubles my bookmarks, reverts to old bookmark sets that are at least a year old and will not properly restore from older bookmark sets the way it's supposed to from their website tool. I would stay far far away from this dangerous, potentially disastrous plugin.

There is a known issue with xmarks being used in conjunction with other syncing systems but I stopped Chrome from syncing bookmarks and still have had the same issues with Xmarks.

I would give 0 stars if possible but 1 is the lowest rating.

app search function Rated 5 out of 5 stars

xmarks is one of my best firefox addons, but I cann't search with more than one keywords with android app or ios app, that said, it's still worth buying.

Works Well, Set autoSynchFreq to Desired Sync Frequency Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I began using XMarks a month ago and haven't had any issues with duplication of folders and URL favorites other reviewers remark on.

My main issue with the add-on was with the re-sync interval that isn't advertised how frequently XMarks syncs out to the cloud and is not an option that can be set within the XMarks add-on user interface.

I found that the default sync is set to 60 minutes, and can be set to a more useful interval of your choice like 5 minutes by updating the extension file settings.jsm (for Windows Firefox). Other OS and browsers should have a similar settings file located in the browser extensions folder for XMarks.

Firefox profiles are located in a folder similar to Windows location:

Locate your profile / search for settings.jsm, make a backup copy of the file, and edit in a text editor (GUI editors like Word for instance likely will add formatting control characters that invalidate the file data structure).

Search for autoSynchFreq and find the reference where it actually is set via line similar to:
{return this.getIntPref("autoSynchFreq",60)},
and change to your preferred sync frequency like 5 minutes:
{return this.getIntPref("autoSynchFreq",5)},

and save the file. You can check the add-ons user interface every few sync intervals to verify that the last sync timestamp is now following your refresh interval rather than the default 60, probably need to shutdown browser and restart for setting to be reread by XMarks add-on.

Main reason for 4 stars versus 5 stars is that XMarks owner LastPass wants you to buy a premium monthly subscription service to get a few nice to have but not critical benefits, the main being smart phone apps that, presumably - XMarks / LastPass doesn't explain anywhere on there premium service sign up site what features exactly you get with premium beyond a smart phone app of unadvertised functionality - so presumably the smart phone app syncs all your synced cloud data onto the phone. With the free account, from your smart phone browser you can access XMarks website, sign in, and have access to all your XMarks cloud URL favorites but it is slower since each folder you travel through reads your bookmarks data from the cloud live, so there is a second or so delay as you travel through each bookmark folder and subfolder with the browser access to XMarks.

I can only presume the smart phone app syncs the cloud data to your phone for instant navigation through your bookmark folders, and presume the premium app auto-logs-in for you - apparently the money you would pay for the premium service doesn't include perks like being told what your money buys for you :o

buggy broken rubbish Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ever since lastpass bought xmarks, they have let it decay into utter rubbish. You'll spend more time cleaning up duplicate folders sometimes in the hundreds than any possible time savings from this broken plugin.

Disable any other bookmark sync that is running

Hi, it sounds like you may have another bookmark sync service running. Please disable it following the steps here: https://helpdesk.xmarks.com/troubleshooting/duplicate-bookmarks-2/ If problems continue please contact our team directly for help: https://buy.xmarks.com/supportticket.php?lpnorefresh=1 Thanks

Synchronise bien les signets sur 9 profils Firefox et Palemoon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Avec xmarks je synchronise 8500 marque-pages entre 9 profiles Firefox (v18 à 41) et Palemoon (v25.7).
Vitesse : dépend de la puissance CPU et du stockage (30 sec sur un Core3 et profile Firefox en RAM mais boooooocu plus long sur un Atom Z520 disque dur 5400 trs/min).
Lag ? 2 minutes initiales sur petites configs, sinon/après non (au contraire de Firefox Sync 1.1 et 1.5)
Erreurs ? non sans autre syncroniseur activé. Oui SI activé en même temps qu'un autre syncroniseur (ex FF Sync), là ça met le souk genre ceux dont cause DManzaluni dans le commentaire précédent.

J'aime : fonctionne (Linux ici) ; choix de synchroniser les signets/historique/onglets ouverts et par profils ; conso réduite ; facile à (dés)activer ; logs détaillés ; transferts chiffrés ; sauvegardes (chaque heure, pas testé)
Je kiffe pas : Lag sur les vielles machines ; Lastpass a le droit d'utiliser tous nos contenus à sa guise, c'est dit noir sur blanc dans les Terms of Service : http://www.xmarks.com/about/terms

À noter que je publierai une petite étude pratique des gestionnaires-synchroniseurs de bookmarks sur infomars.fr et linux-fr.org.

This is one DISASTROUS add-on/extension Rated 1 out of 5 stars

XMarks was the original bookmarks extension/add-on and it is now showing its age. It suffers from massive bugs which almost rise to the level of malware and the developers lost interest in curing them some YEARS ago!

Basically, the bug empties out all your folders and spontaneously dumps all your bookmarks in the root over time. At the next sync, this malware then infects all your other browsers/computers with this problem. At some time after this, XMarks seems to recognise that your folders aren't the same as your original folders (DUH!! THEY ARE EMPTY!) and it seems to duplicate them with even more empty folders until you have (possibly) hundreds of completely useless folders, all of them empty.

I would imagine it should take about five minutes for a competent developer to identify all this behaviour and cure it if the developers could care less but this problem is so widely reported that OBVIOUSLY they couldn't. So this is not a bug report, this is a review.

Bug reports to the developers result in their sending users to one of the most ponderous and confusing repair procedures I have ever encountered on the Internet. There is an extraordinarily slow and confusing way of going back to a time before XMarks infected all your bookmarks with this malware but obviously the further back you go, the more bookmarks you will lose.

Oh, and don't think that you can actually effectively go back in time to perform this excruciatingly slow 'repair': A few days later, XMarks will re-infect all your computers and browsers all over again!
