105 notes
  • The addon works fine, BUT since I installed it, Firefox tries to open a lot of unwanted pages (luckily blocked by my kaspersky).
    I removed the addon and no unwanted page has been reported anymore.
    So what?
    Hello Spiccico, explanation is in the add-on description, and in that page also -> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/wiki/Permissions-and-Privacy-policy

    Firefox does not give access to its favicons database (the little image besides each bookmark), so the add-on has to fetch them one by one from the bookmarked URLs, on its first start and next ones, until they are all fetched.

    If you do not want favicon fetching, and so do not want to have the images, simply disable favicon fetching in the add-on options page.

    Of course, as soon as bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1315616 is corrected, I will modify the add-on to get the favicons from the FF internal DB, and there will be no more fetching.
    Note: Chrome does give access to its favicon DB, but not Firefox today.

    Meanwhile, once again, turn off the option if you do not want it.

    I hope this clarifies, aaFn.
  • Endlich kann man wieder Sinnvoll in den Lesezeichen suchen (habe um die 1900 Lesezeichen, schön nach Themen sortiert, lösche ich nach Gebrauch nicht immer gleich, später keine Ahnung mehr wo ich diese abgelegt habe...)
  • Best Firefox-BM-tool ever. Doesn't matter how many bookmarks you've got - this tool will manage and find every single one.
  • I have about 2500 bookmarks, the search hangs, while the standard search works fine. Please make the search work for a large number of bookmarks.
    Hello, I have around 2500 bookmarks, and some users have 80000 bookmarks, and it is working fine.
    It must be something else like maybe a bug or something special in the bookmark DB which is making Firefox not answer the add-on.

    I will need more details then to pinpoint the problem.
    Can you open an issue on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues ?
    Thank you, aaFn
  • Bookmark Search Plus 2 (BSP2) is used to search for bookmarks and go to the Parent folder where a bookmark is stored. It is better than the "Bookmarks Manager and Viewer" (BMV) add-on in my opinion.

    BMV does not search folder names for the search string, but BSP2 does.

    BMV doesn't immediately display a bookmark that has been added while using BMV so I had to exit BMV and go back to the Bookmarks sidebar to confirm the new bookmark was added. BSP2 doesn't have that problem.
  • Functionality is there but add-on does not respect user's chosen colour theme. W/ Dark theme, I end up with white text on a white background in search box.
    Hello sf, unfortunately, native theme details are not exposed to the add-on, or I didn't find how yet, although I searched for it ... If you find an add-on who is capable of reading the current theme and apply it, can you point it to me so that I can analyze how it does that ?

    Now, I guess you're saying that somehow the theme you chose is imposing its value to the searchbox, preventing it from inheriting the body settings I made.
    I tested the Dark theme under Windows and Linux, and nothing such as what you describe is happening = search box text is black as I specified.
    => would you be on IOS ? (I can't test it, I have none)

    Probably better if you can open an issue so that I can track its details with you, if you agree -> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues

    Note: in 2.0.57 I am forcing black on the search box, based on your feedback. I hope that will cure at least the visual problem and make it useable .. let me know. Thanks, aaFn.
  • Great, great extension, and it's functionality MUST be included to Firefox itself.
    Thanks to the author!
  • Thanks for the reply. Your extenxion now works. I can show and hide the sidebar by ctrl+q keys.
    Greetings
    Hello Giorgio, can you open an issue on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues with details of your Firefox version and conditions ?
    The only case where it shouldn't work is with Firefox 56, because that Firefox version does not support the sidebar show/hide actions.

    Thank you, aaFn.
    -----------------------------------
    Ok, glad it's resolved. Thank you for coming back here to say.
    aaFn.
  • Excelent plugin and time saver.
    Thankyou.
  • Thanks for this addon! In older FF version I was using Sidebar Bookmark Search Plus and I really missed its feature of seeing the parent folders of search results.
  • edited the star
    +1,2,3 star for developer effort, support, commit...
    -4,5 for poo* loop performance, architecture, and some bu*

    mybe its better to have embed feature, like bookmark manager vie**, to better support/integrate with most popular plugin like tree style tab, and also additional feature to bookmark current tab / drag to bookmark
    Hello blankon, would you be ok to open the things you see missing in https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues
    so that we can track there and align ?

    Btw, to bookmark current tab, use the FF native Ctrl-D, and you can drag tabs and things to bookmark. If there is a bug, let's open that on GitHub to get that resolved.

    Thank you, aaFn.
  • THANK YOU! I don't know what else this extension does yet but, when you search for a bookmark it shows the folder where it resides. This has been a necessary feature for over 15 years(!) and, for some reason the Mozilla developers have been avoiding implementing it. It can clearly be implemented quickly. Thank you very much.
  • It does perfectly what I want it to do: to show in which folder a bookmark is.
    However, on install, it opens itself in every window (and replaces Tree Style Tab), where we have to close it or switch back. It would be better to open it only in the active window or none at all if that's not doable.
    Hello Thomas, correct, this is the default behavior of FF -> https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/sidebar_action

    This is a security default, so that an install doesn't go unnoticed by the user.

    Note that:
    - If you immediately redisplay the previous sidebar you had, then subsequent new windows use the one you just selected.
    - When you close FF with a sidebar open, next time it restarts, it reopens with the same sidebar you had at time of close.
    These are FF behaviors at this time which an add-on cannot modify.
  • Showing bookmark parent folder is a must have feature for firefox bookmark manager that is missing.
    Some bugs though at my 2.0.52v.
    -> i use to bookmark a webpage by draging and droping the url to a folder in my bookmark toolbar, but i can't, there is a forbidden sign.
    -> maybe one of my already existing bookmarked pages is infected with malware script. Although i didn't open at all that page, Avast keeps complaining about a malware script, like if i have opened it. This didn't happened ever before installing this add-on. I removed the add-on and i don't get any complains from avast (only if i open the page myself).
    -> i've bookmarked "about:config" and when i click it, it won't open.
    Hello, thank you, I didn't know / didn't notice we could drag the URL address text from the location bar
    => usually, you just need to drag the (i) icon in the location bar ...
    So I added it in 2.0.53 (which is out now).

    On the 2 other points:
    - Yes, upon first load, BSP2 has to fetch each bookmark URL to get its favicon, because the FF API doesn't make that available to add-ons. This is only on first load and until all bookmark favicons were fetched.
    If you do not want that, just disable or pause favicon fetching in the options.

    - "about:config" and in fact any "about:...." URL cannot be open by add-ons.
    This is a security protection of FF (if you look at the browser console with Ctrl+Shift+J, you will see a security error), and this cannot be bypassed.
  • How to set the mouse autofocus in the search bar? This is absolutely needed.
    Hello, indeed ... This is a Firefox feature for add-on, not an add-on controllable thing, and this is missing.
    I have opened a bug on FF for that -> https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1502713
    .. waiting for it to be resolved (it is P3, so I do not expect it to be fast :-( )
  • Минусы: нет быстрого перехода к найденной закладке в дереве одним правым кликом или стрелками вверх / вниз. Нет черной цветовой темы. Нет редактирования тэгов и ключевых слов - только названия и адреса. Не изменить или удалить горячие клавиши (Ctrl + Q). Не выделить в панели несколько пунктов.
    Hello Korwin, sorry I do not speak Russian. I tried to translate using Google translate, but I am not exactly sure of the result ...

    For what I understand of your comment, when you want to show where is a searched bookmark item in the tree, simply click on the search result you want to look for, or right click on it and click on "Show bookmark" in the context menu, and the bookmark pane will smoothly scroll to where your bookmark is, highlighting it.
    Or let me know if I am misunderstanding your comment.
    Thank you, aaFn.
  • It's baffling that the functionality provided by this add-on is not part of Firefox. Who doesn't need to look for bookmark folders or find the parent folder of a bookmark?

    What's even more remarkable about this add-on is that the navigation is very intuitive and in keeping with the Firefox interaction in general, which is my main reason for sticking with Firefox (through all that memory hogging and the PC crashes, but I digress). No weird assumptions to figure out, just install and start organizing. From what I can tell, the one drawback I find (not seeing properties or tags) is imposed by the Firefox API, not by BSP2.
    Hello , thank you. Yes, impatiently waiting for FF to resolve that through an extension of the API -> https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1225916
    More and more people are asking for it as we can read there, so that should happen :-)
  • possibility to search folders!
