Very useful . . . Rated 4 out of 5 stars

. . . But it seems to have stopped working after installing the Tab Utilities extension. I have Stay-Open Menu set to keep menus open when Ctrl-clicking bookmarks; and I set Tab Utilities to the "default action" when I Ctrl-click bookmarks, but this didn't solve the problem. Any insights or suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.6). 

Try going to Tab Utilities Options and in the 'Mouse' section, change Middle-click on Bookmarks to either 'Stay menu open' or 'Invert focus/Stay menu open'.That should enable Stay-Open Menu to keep the menu open for Ctrl-clicks. If you need further assistance please either post to the support forum or contact me via the form at http://www.shadetreeapiary.com/extension/Forms/contactform.htm.

Compatibility with Firefox 3.7a5pre? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hey there,

Great addon, but I'm afraid the next major update, Firefox 3.7 (http://nightly.mozilla.org/), with the new addon manager, breaks it.

Any chance of a compatibility fix?

Problem with new version 1.5.4 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have a conflict with the extension "Toolbar Buttons 0.6.0.8" (click button "bookmarks menu")
When choosing any bookmark menu is doubling all!
Please fix. In the previous version everything was ok.

Re: Problem with new version 1.5.4

This occurs only with Ctrl-click (not middle-click) and was a known issue listed on the Stay-Open Menu website. I have added a mention of this to the release notes. It was working properly with the previous version of Toolbar Buttons. Fix is on to-do list.

RE. my earlier review:
Since that time, the Add-on's developer has been working with me via email and solved my middle-click "bug" (it had to do with a setting in another one of my Add-ons, Personal Menu.)
Five stars for this add-on, and another five for the Developer's level of support!

Helpful Add-on despite recent bug. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A bookmarks folder on the bookmarks toolbar tends to close up immediately after clicking on a bookmark. This extension is very useful because it keeps the menu open long enough to enable me to click on other bookmarks I wish to open.
A problem since 1.5.3 is that middle-clicking on a bookmark folder no longer opens all the bookmarks within that folder (sorry! - I cannot recall what got me this functionality in the first place - but I value it very much). However, reverting back to 1.5.2 re-enabled this without any apparent loss of function.

Breaks workflow Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I didn't notice any improvements since 1.5.2 - to which I rolled back as 1.5.3 messes with ListAllTabs widget's tab listings - it makes current tab (which was bold black) - blue and italic.
It might be fine for some, if highlighting (for said tab in the list) wasn't blue itself. It almost completely blinds tab's title. FAIL.

Re: Breaks workflow

Sorry to disappoint. This change will definitely be optional in the next version. The text appears much darker than the background in my tests and there were no complaints during the beta period. Perhaps this is OS or theme related; regardless, I don't want to make it illegible for anyone.
For those who don't wish to revert to 1.5.2, that change can be reversed in 1.5.3 by adding the following line to userChrome.css:
.tabs-alltabs-popup > menuitem[selected='true'] > label {font-weight: bold !important; font-style: normal !important; color: black !important;}
See 'Known Issues' on homepage (http://www.shadetreeapiary.com/extension/#legibility) for more details.

i like this addon for the simple function it offers. however, somewhere along the line..or maybe it was always like that, i'm not so sure why but it stopped opening even the top folder on the bookmarks toolbar.

at first i thought it didn't support the bookmarks toolbar but checking the website and seeing the screenshots proved otherwise. i've also had a look at some of the bug reports you have listed on the site but came up with nothing.

since i (and others) multi-task, i can't disable any addons (requiring restart) one by one to see which addon it is that is causing possible conflict...but just for the record, i will put down what addons i'm using currently, that headline affecting bookmarks-or just the toolbar itself in general.

- Bookmark Duplicate detector
- Go Parent folder
- Show Parent folder
(adds a 'category/sort by to the existing displaying 'parent' folder)
- Smart bookmarks bar
(for the saving of favicon space. Hover for file names. Auto hide toolbar)
- Stay-Open Menu
- Xmarks

aside from the last, these should all be strictly concentrating on one function in general. possibly there were addons from before, now uninstalled, but we cannot remember them, sorry.

that said, it really is a very nice function and i will continue to use it hoping for a possible solution^^

Re: problem on bookmarks toolbar

I cannot reproduce your issue based on the information here. If it's compatibility related, perhaps it is already fixed by version 1.5.3. It's not necessary to disable them one-by-one. See steps 2-4 under the heading 'Extension Issues' at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_-_Firefox. Please post at the support site or use the contact form on the extension's homepage if you'd like help or would rather try other diagnostic methods. Often one cannot 'guess' which extensions are incompatible by looking at their names. If you don't have time to troubleshoot or just can't restart /now/, that's understandable. But you are unlikely to resolve issues without at some point restarting Firefox.

Additional note: The issue reported in a previous review by 'Ketchup Addict' (hilite gets out-of-sync with mouse pointer), now has a workaround listed on the extension's homepage.

Great add-on.

Sadly, it conflicts with Add Bookmark Here ² (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3880), where a middle click on a bookmark will disrupts the mouse cursor behavior when you want to click on a second bookmark.

Re: Conflict with Add Bookmark Here ²

Thanks.
I would gladly attempt to fix this if I could reproduce it. Not sure what you mean by "disrupts the mouse cursor behavior". If you (or anyone) has more details on this, please post at the support site or use the contact form on the extension's homepage.

Apologies for my earlier review; the problem (duplication of "Hide this menu" item) was most probably because of some other ad-don; dunno which one as I disable a couple of them!!

Also, to bring back the Bookmark I just had to re-enable it from Delicious Menu. Hence kudos to this ad-don, and my apologies again. 5/5

re: Hide Caption Incompatibility

There are more incompatibilities between these extensions than the one you note. At least most of them should be fixed in the next version of stay-Open Menu. The issues arise because 'Hide Caption' has also implemented stay-open-on-middle-click behavior, in a bit different manner.
Possible (temporary) workarounds:
1. Other extensions similar to 'Hide Caption', but which do not affect menu-closing are available. For example, 'Hide Caption Titlebar' and 'Hide Caption Titlebar Plus'. I have not tested them and cannot specifically recommend them, but they should not cause these issues. All (including 'Hide Caption') are 'Experimental'.
2. Use ctrl-click instead of middle-click.
3. When the next prerelease version of Stay-Open Menu becomes available it will be posted at: http://www.shadetreeapiary.com/extension/Prerelease/index.htm (for those who'd like to help test).
