  • Works as advertised, but I'm using the current version of Firefox and Nirsoft's Currports. I started noticing that under certain conditions, this extension opens ports to all my bookmarked IP addresses. Turns out that disabling favicon fetching in options stops this activity. Took a lot of work to narrow it down to this extension.
    Hello John Corliss, correct, when installing the add-on, it retrieves once each favicon directly on their page and caches them. This is because FF does not give access to its own DB of favicons :-(
    Cf. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1315616

    You can let it go and then it stops when all favicons are fetched (duration of the phase will obviously depend on the number of bookmark items you have), or as you did you stop fetching and then miss the little favicons. This will get better when FF fixes the above bug / adds the function.

    Thank you, aaFn.
  • Simple, efficace, rapide, avec un raccourcis clavier pour aller très vite. J'aime beaucoup. Bravo !!!
    Great job !!
  • I want this to open filesystem bookmarks (of the form "file://PATH" ) just like the stock bookmarks sidebar. Is this possible?
    Hello Joe, unfortunate:ly this is forbidden by Firefox Security rules, an Add-on cannot open surch URL's, these are trapped as security exceptions and the process is interrupted.
  • Firefox lacks for parent folder in bookmarks. This extension does the job.
  • Awesome addon, one that I looking for after the new Firefox eliminated many good addon last time. Now I finally able to search the folder of my bookmarks again ! Works great !
  • You are literally a God send! I can not tell you the number of FF updates I refused to do after Bookmark search plus would no longer work. The very first time I reverted back to the former version to keep it and then I never updated until FF forced me to - and then I hated them, more than figuratively. The only reason my eye was drawn this is b/c I did such an extensive search on Alice0775. I researched her every which way to Sunday.

    All to no avail, of course!

    But my efforts are now rewarded b/c I recognize her name in your description.

    So THANK YOU!!!! I have long waited for this return. I SO appreciate you!!

    From my initial use, it is awesome! Works just like it needs to. The added cut and paste is brilliant. Thanks again!!
    Hello, welcome, and happy this is meeting your need :-)
    Your frustration was exactly what happened to me also with FF 57 / Quantum, and which motivated me to take over this sequel, since Alice0775 apparently stopped doing anything on it https://github.com/alice0775/userChrome.js/issues/37#issuecomment-363050019
    Cheers, aaFn.
  • 5 Stars for this incredibly useful extension ! Thank you 2 the developer :).
    Hello, the search function is usually very fast. Could you open an issue on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues to investigate together ?

    On multi-selection, yes this is in the todo list https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues/29
    that will come :-)

  • Fantastic! You did an outstanding job giving us the functionality of the old obsolete extension! In fact, I like it better -- it has more functionality. Two instances of it can independently operate side-by-side: in the sidebar and in an adjacent tab. This functionality can be very useful and powerful. Thanks!
  • causes OOM small in firefox 68, see also
    Hello Registrierter Benutzer, ok, can you open an issue on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues so that we track this down ?

    I also see that https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx (Speravir ?) suggested some customizations specific to BSP2. If you can bring him in, we could also see how to integrate better maybe ?

    Cheers, aaFn.
  • Why can't anyone make a Addon that searches for folders!! I have spent a ridiculous amount of time looking for something that finds the NAMES of folders and have found none. I really like this addon however can the developer make this perfect by adding search folder functionality. Thanks.
    Hello jon482, this add-on searches for any bookmark item, be they folders or bookmarks.
    For folders, this is using their title, which is what I believe you call their name.
    For bookmarks, this is using their title or their url, whichever matches.
    So it does what you want .. or let me know what I am missing.

    If there is a feature you would like to see added, please ask here -> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues

    Thank you, aaFn.
  • Hi! Thanks for this extension! Not too bad! It is really great that it includes also bookmark library folders in the list of results.
    Enhancement suggestions:
    - full page display (dragging the left bookmark search plus 2 sidebar is limited to approx a third of the window width)
    - text cursor should jump right in the search field in order to immediately type the search string (without need to click firs in the search field)
    - in preferences: what does it mean "Show bookmarks"? I don't see that function
    - good to provide these preferences options:
    * leave open or close bsp2 sidebar after clicking on a bookmark to open the bookmark
    * to either open the tree or open the folder entirely (abonding tree structure display), when clicking on a folder (like browsing in a mac finder window)
    * disable favicon fetching without they disappear in bookmark library
    Hello smooth operator, thank you.

    In the order, for the 3 first:
    - Right click on the magnifing glass in the search box, and click on "Open BSP2 in a tab" .. you'll get what you want :-) (I will make it a more visible menu in a further release)
    - As said in response to a review below, that works with Linux, but not with Windows. This is a bug open on Firefox -> https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1502713 ... need to wait for FF bug correction.
    - "Show bookmark" is the default action when clicking on a search result. Also shown in the context menu when right clicking on a search result. That action scrolls the main panel to where is located the bookmark item corresponding to the result.

    Thanks, aaFn.
  • Excellent. I've been waiting for this for a long time.
  • Here is what this addon asks when you install it.
    "Store unlimited amount of client-side data"
    To ask such a request is INADMISSIBLE and nothing short of theft of the highest level. It can also leads to unbelievable penalizing use of your storage space on your computer.

    Any developer who makes such a request is to be considered with a very high level of suspicion, as it is a highly fraudulent request. Shame on you the developer to make such a request.

    There cannot be any justifiable reason to make such a request except for fraudulent purposes!!!
    Hello, all is explained here -> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/wiki/Permissions-and-Privacy-policy

    The 2 reasons for a bigger amount of storage than 5 MB are because:
    - Firefox does not give access to favicons, so they have to be stored in local storage https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1315616 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1411120
    - Firefox is very slow on the query to get all bookmarks and so to be fast on next starts after 1st run, the add-on has to cache them in local storage https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1396364

    and some users have very large amouns of bookmarks (> 80000), so 5 MB is not enough.
    By the way, if you have any doubt, the code is plain open and FULLY COMMENTED FOR READABILITY, anybody can read and look at it to verify.

    Thank you for your understanding, aaFn.
  • Superb Add-on!

    I was looking for a bookmarking add-on that would display folders, and subfolders in the results, as well as the webpages.
    This add-on allows users to find a bookmark folder with a particular name: simply by searching for the folder's name.
    If you then click on the folder in the search results its location will be highlighted in the bookmark tree: Ideal!

    This is an excellent add-on!
    Congratulations to the creator/creators!
    Keep up the excellent work!
    Thank you.
