not fully compatible on linux Rated 3 out of 5 stars

My bookmark collection is getting so large that firefox is slowing down. So this addon looked like it would be very handy to help me manage my bookmarks. Unfortunately, when I create a bookmark with tark, the egg timer icon is not visible in the bookmarks menu.I am running firefox 23.0 on Ubuntu 12.04. I would not recommend this addon for Linux users. If you have another operating system you are probably fine.

needs to create its own folders Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I install this in all my profiles and every one of my friends.. firefox needs something like this built in to the next version

fantastic, every profile, BUT Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is a PAIN having to create the structure of bookmark folders FOR the extension. IT should adopt a structure by default: each state having it's own sub-directory of a TARK folder

Very Smart Suggestion

This is an interesting suggestion, and for a new user that could make a bunch of sense.

I am wondering if the user could perhaps get asked that the first time the Add-On is run, so if they select "yes" it is created. Otherwise they can do manual-creation.

Need to be able to tag tarks and then to make them permanent Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What would make this much more useful for me would be

1. to be able to tag the tarks like any other bookmark. I sometimes want to mark large numbers of pages to do with various aspects of current news stories. They need to be temporary because most of them will become obsolete as events unfold, but I still need to be able to search them.

2. It should be possible to make a Tark permanent easily without losing all the tags that I have suggested above that we should be able to add. For example I have collected a lot of articles about a particular news event. Most of those will become obsolete, but some of them will remain useful.

better as subfolder of Unsorted Bookmarks ("system") folder Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In Fox 3.5.x library, ctrl+shift+b, see Unsorted Bookmarks

Tark might be better served creating two subfolders in Unsorted Bookmarks (each at the same depth with respect to Unsorted Bookmarks)

"Might be of interest"
"I guess I have forgotten about these"

Or something comical.

Retain the "bookmark expiration" nature of tark. Consider adding your tark-icon next to the "bookmark this page" star in the location bar much like Read It Later does. Make that button either click sequentially- or click and hold to change tark state.

Similarly tark will change the color- or shape of this new location bar button itself instead of modifying the favicon (which I disable entirely but that is not the reason for not wanting to use favicon).

3.5 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really liked using Tark, I can't wait until a version comes out which works with firefox 3.5

Version .33 should now work for 3.5

Thanks for the comment and info about 3.5. I just updated the version for Tark .33. It looks like everything is working fine for Firefox 3.5.2 on my system.

If there is anything else that needs to be fixed for 3.5 or any other thing please let me know.

I tried it and found that for me it just makes things more difficult. It is easier to use ctrl-D to bookmark and put them in unsorted.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Afer having used this for a while, I found that it makes a simple task unnecessary complicated. And so I went back to my old scheme, that is to say just having an extra folder for temporary bookmarks. Everything of which I am not sure, is bookmarked there. After a while I sort in those that are still of interest and the rest is deleted. So simple - no need for a Tark thing. Tark would be of interest for me if there was an option to have egg-timed bookmarks being automatically deleted when time is up. But without this, it's just redundancy that bloats FF for nothing.

Expired Tark Policy Added to .33

Tark has an expiration policy that was added to 0.33, which was just released today.

There are 3 possible policies.
1) Do as Tark did before, change the icon and filter to a folder if specified.
2) Move the bookmark to the unsorted area and tag as "expired." That is like a "sort-a deleted" option, where typing "expired" in the address bar can show those bookmarks.
3) Delete expired bookmarks.

This is an excellent add-in. I'd looked for an add in like this and tark exceeds my envisioned solution. Note, to add the Tark dropdown list to the toolbar, follow the instructions and select the icon named simply 'Tark'...it's the dropdown list.

I'm rating 5 stars because... I haven't tried 'Tark' to be frank. But I'm commenting nevertheless because since Firefox 3, all bookmarks I'm not sure to keep are settled in the 'Unsorted Bookmarks' folder : 1 click, 2 clicks, done. I don't understand the purpose of some extensions when they seem to be redundant with built-in functions.

Add-Ons Are Your Friend

Hi Foxtail,

I hope you try Tark if you have the chance. I think of the Add-Ons community as like a musical jam session. Everyone is trying different things, sometimes with various degrees of overlap and at different times. Whatever works best for someone is great no matter what. You are part of Firefox's community, a user... Thank you for using Firefox!

Now for my thoughts on your question. Tark allows different kinds of "temporary-ness" over time. The time value I personally give to Tarks can be different based on subject matter, priority etc.

Tark also can be tailored to restore the "temporary-ness" on subsequent page visits as well.

In version .31 of Tark you can now assign a Tark via right-click. That can store a Tark in bookmarks plus put it in a Tark folder, ALL in one click.

Mozilla will continue to do AWESOME things with Firefox. Those things will form the base upon which new approaches to a host of things will come about. We are in this journey together, lets see and hear what the next jam sessions are like!

I was looking for something like this. at first I didn't completely figured out how to use it but afterwards - this is really useful. it reminds me to check website I saved for later. I'd like to see the same buttons, but when you click on 4 weeks for example, you'll get a popup or a list of all the bookmarks that will last 4 weeks.

Finally updated for 3.0 and it would by nice if I could choose the tarkfolder in "bookmarks toolbar"

Just what I was looking for. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Temporary bookmarks are just what I was looking for. Sometimes I visit a website and end up having to turn off my computer for some odd reason, and then a site remains in my bookmarks for ages. Now, with Tark, I can easily keep my bookmark page clean.
