Tab Mix Plus

Thanks for an Essential Add-on Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Great add-in, moved from similar add-ons no longer supported and not working in the Firefox 40+ versions

Xmarks Sync

Works Well, Set autoSynchFreq to Desired Sync Frequency Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

I began using XMarks a month ago and haven't had any issues with duplication of folders and URL favorites other reviewers remark on.

My main issue with the add-on was with the re-sync interval that isn't advertised how frequently XMarks syncs out to the cloud and is not an option that can be set within the XMarks add-on user interface.

I found that the default sync is set to 60 minutes, and can be set to a more useful interval of your choice like 5 minutes by updating the extension file settings.jsm (for Windows Firefox). Other OS and browsers should have a similar settings file located in the browser extensions folder for XMarks.

Firefox profiles are located in a folder similar to Windows location:
C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\YourRandomProfileKey.default\extensions\foxmarks@kei.com\modules\settings.jsm

Locate your profile / search for settings.jsm, make a backup copy of the file, and edit in a text editor (GUI editors like Word for instance likely will add formatting control characters that invalidate the file data structure).

Search for autoSynchFreq and find the reference where it actually is set via line similar to:
{return this.getIntPref("autoSynchFreq",60)},
and change to your preferred sync frequency like 5 minutes:
{return this.getIntPref("autoSynchFreq",5)},

and save the file. You can check the add-ons user interface every few sync intervals to verify that the last sync timestamp is now following your refresh interval rather than the default 60, probably need to shutdown browser and restart for setting to be reread by XMarks add-on.

Main reason for 4 stars versus 5 stars is that XMarks owner LastPass wants you to buy a premium monthly subscription service to get a few nice to have but not critical benefits, the main being smart phone apps that, presumably - XMarks / LastPass doesn't explain anywhere on there premium service sign up site what features exactly you get with premium beyond a smart phone app of unadvertised functionality - so presumably the smart phone app syncs all your synced cloud data onto the phone. With the free account, from your smart phone browser you can access XMarks website, sign in, and have access to all your XMarks cloud URL favorites but it is slower since each folder you travel through reads your bookmarks data from the cloud live, so there is a second or so delay as you travel through each bookmark folder and subfolder with the browser access to XMarks.

I can only presume the smart phone app syncs the cloud data to your phone for instant navigation through your bookmark folders, and presume the premium app auto-logs-in for you - apparently the money you would pay for the premium service doesn't include perks like being told what your money buys for you :o

Search Wolfram Alpha

Correct the Wolfram Alpha Label as Follows Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Works as expected, but label of "Wolfram Alpha searchextension" in Firefox search bar is irritating and non-standard with rest of search entries (search extension is redundant term).

Fortunately updating the labels is straight-forward:

* Open your Firefox Profile directory -> from the Firefox Main Menu -> Help / Troubleshooting Information / section Application Basics / Profile Folder has button to "Show Folder"

* Then use a text editor to edit files <profile-folder>\search.json and <profile-folder>\searchplugins\wolfram-alpha-searchextension.xml

* Search for searchextension and remove from labels within both files (all references except to the filename wolfram-alpha-searchextension.xml)
For Example "_name":"Wolfram Alpha" and <os:ShortName>Wolfram Alpha</os:ShortName>

* Save both files and restart Firefox

Locator - locate on google map

Open in New Window Doesn't Work Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

Thanks to reviewer David Green on February 24, 2009 - I completely agree with his suggestion to use Advanced URL Builder (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1399) which is so much more flexible and handles the same open in maps task (plus whatever sites and URLs you want to concatenate together)!

My review before switching to Advanced URL Builder:

Locate on Google Map or the equivalent submenu item New Window does not work on Firefox 19 / Win7, it opens a blank white window with Locator as the window title bar (and no URL address bar).

The open in New Tab submenu item works good as expected, with the tab having the full browser controls and URL address bar etc.Another reviewer mentioned this was a problem back in 2009... but please fix and also if the new window by design will not have full browser controls, please change that or create a checkbox option in the add-on to create a full browser window.

Download Statusbar

Much Appreciated, Can Stats be Added to Firefox Downloads View? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Much needed upgrade to lousy Firefox Downloads!!

The stats you maintain on the statusbar - Time to Complete, From URL, Average Speed, etc, could you please update the default Firefox Downloads view to contain this information, including your right click menu on each file download that includes the options like Visit Source Website and Copy Source URL, that would complete the awesomeness of this add-on! Thanks much for your efforts!

Duplicate 2 Window

Great, add more options? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Thanks for adding this feature.

Could you add 2 options, they could be checkboxes defaulted off for backwards-compatibility to current add-on, accessible from the Add-Ons Options button:

- "Duplicate 'back-button' history" of tab to new Window, so new Window could be navigated backwards to prior URLs
- Duplicate entire window to new window meaning window with 5 tabs when type Ctrl-N creates new window with 5 tabs

- If both checkmarks are true then for example all 5 tabs in new dupe window would have each original tabs 'back-button' history

Thanks so much for what you have already done with the add-on!
