Xmarks Sync

Works fine but freezes Firefox for a few minutes if you have thousands of bookmarks Rated 3 out of 5 stars

14 November 2014
I use xmarks since delicious stopped their support for Firefox addons, that is several years now. Delicious was better, but the xmarks sync works fine. I don't think I have lost bookmarks like other reviews mention.

It does freeze FF when syncing though and because of that I have disabled automatic syncing and only let it sync when I close FF. In my case that takes about 2 minutes. I contacted support (I am a premium member), they are very responsive. We ran some test and they concluded that it is slow because I have over 6000 bookmarks and it has to scan all of them to find and compare changes with the bookmarks on the server. I don't think it should have to scan all the bookmarks because FF keeps track of the date/time a bookmark has changed.

Anyway, they say they will see if they can make the process faster. Unfortunately they can't give a time indication. If there are others with freezing problems then I suggest you contact support. The more people complain about it the more chance there is this will be solved soon.

* For now I give 3 out of 5 stars rating.
* I give 4 out of 5 when the freezing issue is fixed.
* I give all 5 stars when the Android and Windows Phone App are faster and have an option to add, edit and delete bookmarks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3.3). 

Delicious Bookmarks

Import is disabled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am an old time user, but switched to another service a long time ago because after the purchase by AVOS there were nothing but sync problems. Just saw there is a new version and wanted to try it. Then I found it didn't import my Firefox bookmarks and read on their website that importing bookmarks has been temporarily disabled...

IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There is a lot of confusion between the different version of ie tab that keep on popping up. They are all from different developers and each of them has added additional functionality. I have tried all of them, and they either stop working with an FF update or contain adware. Up to now, IE Tab V2 is the most reliable one which is also being updated for new FF versions. Unfortunately it doesn't work yet for FF9. I posted this in their forum http://gsfn.us/t/2kxl9 so I expect they will soon have a fix.

If you ended up here because of the referral on the 'problematic extensions' page due to the memory leak issue in ie tabs, then you can also try the new coral ie tab

IE Tab

Answer to 'really annoyed' Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@really annoyed
It is listed as having a memory leak but if you click on the "Show bug" link in the last column, then you go to the bug report. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324793
There you see that this bug is reported in 2006 while the latest version of ie tab (1.5) is from june 2009. On the ie tab web site http://ietab.mozdev.org/installation.html it says the memory leak is resolved in version 1.3.0.

I sometimes do get an error message when I close firefox after using it for a day (I use a web application the entire day in firefox with ie tab).

Looking a but further, I now found a replacement for ie tab at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10909 called 'coral ie tab'. I am going to install it to see if that also give me the error.

IE View Lite

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Useless for my purpose. All it does is open the current website in internet explorer (if you managed to find out that you first have to add the addon button to the toolbar). It does not re-render the current web page with internet explorer's engine in a Firefox tab like 'ie tabs' does.

Ie tabs might have a memory leaks, but it's silly to advice this as a replacement because it does something completely different.

Also, why spend time on creating something that already exists (IE View by Paul Roub)? If you do that, then at least add functionality to make it better for the user in stead of making it look exactly the same with the same features (and not just reducing the file size to even less then 47kb).
