This add on used to work awesome. Now It does not work from the keyboard (Ctrl+F2, Alt+F2), now it works ONLY on the main Firefox window. It will not work on second or third firefox window open. So sad!!

This used to work fine, but now (in Mac Firefox 34.0) its items are no longer visible in the context menu when I right-click a link. The Menu Editor extension (which always worked fine with this) can't see these items either. The only way this works now is as a toolbar button, and that just lets you toggle *all* links, not just individual links like before. Please fix this!

Can't see this addon in context menu, no matter if I right-click a link or right-click other part of page.
Luckily, I can add this addon to Toolbar.
Firefox version 31.3.0, which is perhaps the latest Firefox ESR version.

I use this all the time, and love it, but the lack of the "v" shortcut key is going to make my life much less pleasant. I hope this will come back in a future update. It's so important to me that if there were another add-on that did have a shortcut key, I would switch.
Before the loss of this crucial feature, I'd have given this software five stars. Now it only has 4.
Arghh---keyboard "Mark all links visited" no longer works in new version! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Arghh---keyboard (was Alt-F2) "Mark all links visited" no longer works in new version!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.0). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.
Love the Mark Bookmarks option! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Used to work great but the latest version (3.4.2) doesn't allow me to right click on a link and mark or unmark it. You now have to drag-select the link's text and then right click on it to enable the options for individual links. Not good.
...I take it back! didn't see "Toggle Visited Status" option much further up on the context menu -- not anywhere near the "Mark Links" sub menu. Back to 5 stars. Sorry.
The option is still there as 'toggle visited status'
it was renamed due to API changes.

a useful addon from the perspective of my browser :), I mean, yes, indeed, my browser acknowledges all these links were visited, but how about my trackers? Are they viewing the same number of visited links? Or they view only the links I have visited for real?
Besides, I checked this addon within the current FF version and it doesn't show like the extension is actually working, doing anything ... maybe I am wrong. Then how do I check if the addon is working? Thank you :)
This add-on works by adding links to the browsers history only, the links are not followed. As far as other add-ons are concerned, they probably cannot tell the difference.
You can tell if the add-on is working by looking at the history.
If the links are not showing visited, make sure Firefox's privacy settings are set to 'Remeber History' and that the layout.css.visited_links_enabled option is set to true.

Great addon !
I wanted it ...
You doo it.
Great addon!!!! and question...))) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hi to all! Is it possible somehow to make "mark all links as visited" from all (or several) open tabs, not just from 1 tab?
Thanks in advance
Works, but it's teribly slooooow Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I'm using FF22 and LinkVisitor 3.4.2. I use it to mark links as visited only, I never unmark them. From some days ago this addon mark *all* the links as visited, including those already marked. Now it takes 40 seconds to mark an eBay search result page with 50 listings. It took 13 seconds before in the same computer (i5 3.8 GHz).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.2).

'Mark link un/visited' menu option changed to 'Toggle visited status' Why ?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.2). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
It was changed because the call to determine the current state is no longer supported. The alternative call is asynchronous and the result isn't known when the menu is shown.
Broken in Firefox 22 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Doesn't seem to function any more in FFx 22 beta.
Update (6/26/13) - 3.4.2 does appear to now work in FFx 22! Love this extension!
I've determined the issue has been caused by the 'fix' to bug 838874. I hope to have a solution before FF22 is released.

Just what I wanted... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just what I wanted to make some webpages easier to use. By having LV3 mark all links 'visited' I can easily see when new links are added. My complements and thanks to the developer. ...nChuckThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.1).
All fixed, works fine with sync Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The developer fixed the problem mentioned in my review for version 3.4, and 3.4.1 now works fine with sync.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.1). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Great but currently not hassle-free Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Gread add-on! But, unfortunately not very easy to use at the moment, as I also have the problem with FF freezes upon using "mark all links visited" (FF 9.0.1, all other add-ons disabled).
Interestingly, this occurs on a fresh Windows 7 (Home Premium) installation - while there were no problems with the same browser on the old XP SP3 installation on the same computer. On the other hand, on another PC (this time also with XP SP3), freezes occurred as well; this time with FF 8 as much as with FF 9. It appears to be independent of the specific web page, although the number of links seems to have an impact on the duration of the freeze.
I have no idea about the cause but nevertheless hope it will be fixable (and fixed) as the add-on itself was great, extremely useful and is highly recommended - especially once the problems are resolved.
The likelihood to (apparently) freeze is dependent on the number of unvisited links and the overheads involved in adding links to the history, which appear to be getting higher. Hopefully the latest version (3.4) will be more responsive.
Awesome add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Absolutely brilliant, does exactly what I need! Even signed up to this site to just leave a review with 5 stars. Btw what do you think of functionality that you press another shortcut, and it takes you to the first unvisited link. Would be handy swifting those massive 200+ item ebay pages looking for a bargain :PThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3).
LinkVisitor 3.3 is hanging Rated 5 out of 5 stars
LinkVisitor 3.3 is hanging for 30 seconds or more when I try to “Mark Link as Visited”. But not every time. It seems to consistently hang at times, and doesn’t hang during other sessions. Quitting Firefox doesn’t help. Is my history file for LinkVisitor getting too large? I regularly clear out the Cache, Session Manager Saved Sessions, and Tab Mix Plus Saved Sessions. No other problems with Firefox. I only need links to be marked as visited for 10 days. It would be nice to be able to have those expire after 10 days. if that would help keep the file smaller, if that is the problem. Firefox 5.0.1. OS X 10.6.8. Mac Pro 2X-Quad-Core Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz MA970LL/A.
Memory: 10 GB ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
Dec 30, 2011 update: I find that every week or so I have to "clear recent history", but choosing to clear everything except for the last 10 days doesn't work. Only clearing all history for "browsing & download history", "all session browsing history", and "cache" will stop the hangs. After clearing all history for these 3 items the hangs go away and firefox is zippy again. I would like to keep only the last 10 days' history, but that doesn't seem to work; it still hangs constantly after clearing all but the last 10 days of history for those 3 items.
The likelihood to (apparently) freeze is dependent on the number of unvisited links and the overheads involved in adding links to the history, which appear to be getting higher.
LinkVisitor adds links to the history, so they appear as if they'd been clicked on. Standard history setting will then apply.
FireFox 4 Freezes Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Just installed Firefox 4 and this app now freezes when I try and use Mark All Links as visited...
Please fix and update
I'm not aware of any problems with the add-on and Firefox 4, and without more information there's nothing I can do to help.
It's probable that there is a conflict with another add-on.
If you disable all other add-ons, does the problem still occur?
If you can tell me what other add-ons you're using, and preferably, which one appears to conflict, I may be able to help.
Also, is it specific to a single website, or does it occur on most sites.
Indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I do a lot of research and this addon helped saved a lot of my time, not having to repeatedly click on visited articles. Many thanks to the developer !!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3).
