Please add support for Cyrillic name folders and open dialogue select the folder for saving every time.
At that address is not stored files: ~/Загрузки.
I would like to see only the directory selection dialog, without other options. In this case, fewer clicks of the mouse.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Thanks for the review KOT040188!

Could you provide a URL to sample Cyrillic text please?
Also on the confirmation dialog, you can select the folder if you click on 'path to file' textfield.

Forse avete un altro addon causando conflitti sul sistema.

problems the last days Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really great plugin, but some days ago it stopped working, the addon-icon is gone, the shortcut doesn't work anymore. De installing and reinstalling doesn't fix it .. I use Waterfox 38.0
What can I do?

Thanks for the review S from Berlin!
Do you know when the addon stopped working? I have not released an update since May 2nd.
Also, is the "Save Text to File" context menu item present? If not, are you sure you have not disabled the addon?

If you still experience the issue could you create a bug report to help debug please?

Bad example with Wikipedia Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hey H1, why do you think the wikipedia example is bad?

Glad you like it

It's good!
Could you possibly create a "Save as text" option (when saving a complete website)?!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.4.1-signed). 

Not a bad idea, will look into this.

nice, could be improved Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i like your addon, i'd like it even more if i had the following options:
filename: datestamp first, then filename.
filenname: only datestamp w/o filename looks like "--2015-03-15"
this is ugly, remove the -- please ;-)
in the txt file it should not read "Date stamp: 2015-03-15
Time stamp: 21-56-51" but only the data in one line.
finally if all is set it might be a good idea to just have an option to put a file name (focus in the field) and save/append/prepend button.
thanx anyway.

Sure, ill look into those suggestions.

Include text areas & inputs [type="text"] Rated 5 out of 5 stars

●I'd like to save text area's content. And searchbar & urlbar content too.
●And auto-save specific content (e.g. search bar contents, the content of a specific text area)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.3.1-signed). 

Sure, inputs [type="text"] will be in next major release.

Works fine, but slight compatibility issue with another add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I needed this add-on, I've found it. Works flawlessly and provides all a user may need/wish for saving text to one or more files.

Slight compatibility issue with Quick Context 2 0.1.9 add-on (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/quick-context-2/) when the initial pop-up blocks Save text To File's action. Right-clicking the text again out of the initial popup solutions the problem. Quick Context here has an issue.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.3.1-signed). 

Appreciate your feedback FoxTail, glad you make use of the addon :)

Why is this add-on spamming my cookie manager with a fake cookie called "highlightedtexttofile-at-bobbyrne01-dot-org" at every browser startup?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.1-signed). 

This is now fixed in v2.5.2.
Thanks for pointing this out

Perfect 2.4.6 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Running as promoted, all options clear and quick to set up to yr preference. One of a kind, save snippets as you surf with a single click incl url. Most important - excellent support.

Glad you like the addon :)

"Widget" disappears Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The "show widget" setting is not preserved after a full exit and restart - the option is turned off, which is a big nuisance. It does survive a quick restart.

Later: The problem turned out to be caused by an interaction with another addon. It disappeared when the latter was upgraded.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.4.1-signed). 

Thanks for review!

Hey, this is an excellent addon!
Cannot think of a faster way to save text to a file on my computer, thanks for all your hard work on this!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.3.1-signed). 

Your welcome!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent facility.

A question: Text is saved to the Notepad - is it possible to have an option to save it to a Word document?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.3.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Thanks for review! There is no 'save to .doc' feature at the moment.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used this add-on extensively until some time ago when it no longer would save the original layout of the text snippet. Could you please fix it so it retains the formatting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.3.1-signed). 

Thanks for your review.
Could you file a bug here please to track the issue? Providing an example use case of the issue.
Formatting is preserved for me with v2.4.3

Feature request: changeable keyboard shortcut Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to change the keyboard shortcut within the options of this addon ?

I use this addon only with its keyboard shortcut which is shift+F1 to automatically save selected text.

But I changed the the keyboard shortcut with help of addon "keyconfig" = http://mozilla.dorando.at/ from shift+F1 to Strg+Y:
Because when I save text from many opened tabs one finger presses "Strg" and one finger "dances" A-Y-W (= copy all - save selected text - close tab).

There seems to be a conflict between the addons keyconfig and saveTextToFile:
I still use saveTextToFile Version 1.1.4 because when I upgrade higher than Version 2.0. the keyboard shortcut dissappears form the menu inside addon "keyconfig" (cannot be seen any longer in keyconfig and cannot be changed any longer).

Therefore I stick to Version 1.1.4 because with higher Versions I cannot perform my "finger dance" A-Y-W, I "have to" use the default keyboard shortcut which is shift+F1 and which "forces" me to perform "extra finger work".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3.1-signed).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Thanks for the review!
In version 2.6.3 you can configure/change the shortcut :)

Excelent addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very simple and very nice addon. Thanks.

Please, check small bugs and improve options.

For sample:

* If page tiitle include special simbols (:\? and etc.) file creating with this option failed.
For fix replace in Chrome.js this row
fileName = fileName + ".txt";
to
fileName = fileName.replace(/[\/\\|":*?<>]/g,'_') + ".txt";

* User need formatting date/time with leading zero.
Sample for fix: currentHours = (currentHours < 10 ? "0" : "") + currentHours;

* Add icon to notification:
iconURL: Data.get("images/ico.png")

* Replace string "confirmDialog" to "confirmPanel" in ConfirmPanel.html and localization files for correct localization name of this option.

Despite these comments, I'm glad to use this addon.

Big thanks for this addon.
