Thanks for your reply, it seems I was trying to drag the only thing that wasn't possible to drag! (highlighting the web address and dragging that), but now that you've pointed out how you can drag
- a tab URL, by dragging from the tab bar at top of the page
- the address bar URL, by dragging the (i) icon at top left
that solves my problem, and also the info about " a link URL in a page, by dragging the link itself" is very useful.
Thanks for your response and help :)
It would be useful if you could add bookmarks by dragging and dropping urls, other than that, it's great and exactly what I was looking forHello, thank you for the message and the evaluation. Not exactly sure of what you mean by "dragging and dropping urls", as the function already exists. If you could specify a little more ?
Right now, one can drag:
- a tab URL, by dragging from the tab bar at top of the page
- the address bar URL, by dragging the (i) icon at top left
- a link URL in a page, by dragging the link itself
- a bookmark from the tree
and drop wherever needed in the bookmark tree.
Let me know if there is anything else draggable that I missed, and I'll look to add.

Update | A few hours before your post I removed the extension and reinstalled it. The Favicon Fetching Pause/Active feature is now working just fine.
Firefox v62.0.2 (64-bit) user
Original Comment | Favicon fetching was working after v2.0.37 update. However, after setting fetching to Pause and later resetting to Active, fetching does not activate even after next FF Restart.
Firefox v62.0.2 (64-bit) userHello, that still works fine on my side, I just verified to make sure with multiple Pause / Active sequences, and this is ok.
Could you open an issue here -> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues
so that we track this down together on your config ?
Thank you, aaFn.
Update: ok, glad this was only a glitch then, and thank you for coming back here to say.
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 14195070 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5Great extension. Thank you very much for doing it and maintaining it. I must also highlight that the best thing I have seen about this extension is not the extension itself, which is great, but the very open, friendly and honest attitude of its developer. To me, this is the biggest asset of all and one that is not so common. That's why this project deserves full five stars, hands down, regardless of whatever minor imperfections that anyone may have mentioned earlier, which the developer has made honest efforts to fix within his/her power. Kudos!Welcome, and thank you for writing that, it feels good to read.
Extensions are to make life easier for FF users. So I am trying to get something which is fitting most of you as much as possible, while sticking to the initial goals of showing the path to bookmarks and of trying to remain as close to the native sidebar as possible, since an add-on cannot be in the native sidebar anymore after Quantum.
Hoping one day FF will integrate that much needed function, and so success for that add-on will be to disappear :-) In the interim, it may be here for long however :-D
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 12655556 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5I have waited for so long for a replacement for "Go Parent Folder" and "Show Parent Folder" and had given up all hope of a decent bookmark system for Firefox.
Thank you for at last fixing Firefox's terrible bookmark management!!
PS: Any chance of adding a replacement for Alice's "Undo Bookmarks Menu" to undo the last change to the menu? This would be very useful for those accidental mistakes where you drag and drop a folder or shortcut somewhere and it "disappears" - normally deep into some folder somewhere!Thank you. Interesting idea. Would you mind submitting it as an "issue" on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues so that I keep track of it and study if/when it would be easy to add ?
- par Max1234-ITA, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5This is a very nice addon, especially since the coming of Quantum has disrupted many extensions I used before :-(
It would be PERFECT if , in the search result pane, it was possible to edit all the bookmark fields (Name, Location, Tags, Keyword and Description), as in the native feature (currently, only "Name" and "Address" fields can be changed).
Another feature that is missing is a function allowing to sort alphabetically the bookmarks in the selected folder (the FF-native bookmark context menu allows this also).
Thanks for your work, anyway, keep it up!Hello Max1234-ITA, as soon as FF makes that available .. see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1225916 (but current FF developer comments on the bug do not leave a lot of hope for something coming soon .. :-( )
As for the sort, this is to come yes, although I didn't work out a plan yet. This is discussed here https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues/43
Thank you, aaFn.
===================== Update =========================
"Sort by Name" is now available in 2.0.36.
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13490222 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5Outstanding! That is what I've been looking for a long time. Very often you need not only search some bookmark, but also need to get a folder where it is located. This "plus" does all these things by fast and intuitive way. The all I did after install, just set up the option "After `Show bookmark`".
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13499256 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5very easy to use. great replacement for "show parent folder". minor wish - that it worked in "show all bookmarks" window, not just in sidebar, but doesn't detract from filling a need of something I've been missing. Thank you very much!
- par JoAb, il y a 2 ansNoté 4 sur 5No toolbar icon for this extension; can use CTRl-Q keyboard shortcut in Windows to open the extn in the sidebar. The search seems to work fine; the lower pane shows the bookmark location within the fully expanded bookmark tree, so if your searched bookmark is the 100th within a partcular folder/parent you would have to scroll up in the sidebar a 100 rows to find which folder is the parent. Perhaps you could initially just show the bookmark position within a folded bookmark tree, and an option (say a "+" icon) to expand the parent folder and/or the whole tree. Not sure if this is technically possible though, just my thoughtHello JoAb, thank you for the comments.
There is a toolbar icon for the extension. It is a yellow star with a "+" sign inside it. Maybe you removed it or you have something hiding it ? In the first case, try "additional tools" on far right of the toolbar, then "customize toolbar" .. and you should find it and be able to drag it back to the toolbar.
On the thing you suggest for "show search", this is not easily possible. but also this wouldn't match the frequent behavior that users often search for a boookmark to find where to drag a new bookmark which they want to put / create in that same folder and around the same place => they need to see the full contents of the folder around the searched bookmark to place the new bookmark.
By the way, this is exactly reproducing the behavior of the initial Bookmark Search Plus extension (pre-Quantum), which BSP2 is replacing.
Thank you, aaFn.
******** Edit ************************
On second thought, a proposal I could make is to add an action to the right click context menu which would be "Go parent folder" .. and it would jump you directly to the parent 100 rows above without you scrolling for it.
That action could be both in the main bookmark and in the search result panes .. what do you think ?
If that looks good to you, would you mind opening it as an issue on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues ?
******** Edit again ******************
Never mind, on third thought, I believe this is a useful feature for all, so I opened the issue myself
and implemented the function in 2.0.34.
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13418931 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5Thank you for your hard work...been waiting for the parent folder features since we lost it in web extensions. Nice to have this functionality back. I can now remove my legacy ext. reminder to keep checking for it.
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13000076 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 1 sur 5useless! This is not a 1:1 GoParentFolder-Addon
A much better solution (replacement) is:
https://add0n.com/bookmarks-manager.htmlHello anonymous, not sure what is useless, and sorry for the bad experience if something is not working.
Would you mind being more specific on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues ?
Note that BSP2 is first a replacement for Bookmark Search Plus from the same author than Go Parent Folder. It does the same thing but runs from inside a sidebar, so that it can remain visible at the same time as your navigation pages.
Bookmarks Manager is a good add-on and is inside a pop up, which is a different philosophy.
I do not believe it is fair to compare both together, it is a question of taste, and tastes are never absolute.
What we all strive for is to be useful to others, so anything allowing to progress is much welcome.
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 12272868 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5Thank you for resurrecting the best add on for Firefox. I have a zillion bookmarks and folders and used to use Go Parent Folder all the time to find bookmarks. This add on does that and more. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
- par irripod , il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5I have already written a very positive review, but now I need to report a problem. Since the last update the add-on doesn't load, it only gives me the "Wait background load..." message, and that goes on forever. What should I do to make it work again, I wonder.
P.S.: Thanks for the answer. I have done what you asked for.
P.S.: Thank you for the quick fix – 2.0.29 works fine again.Hello irripod, can you open an issue here ?
I would need the traces contents (go to options panel for the add-on, and tick the "Activate trace" box. A readonly textarea should appear with an history of what happened.
Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience, let's tackle it, aaFn.
PS: Hopefully bug corrected with 2.0.29 now, let me know, and sorry for the inconvenience.
- par alexg, il y a 2 ansNoté 4 sur 5would've been better if it was integrated into the bookmark manager itself
also would be nice to have an option to show a column for parent folders in the bookmark manager.Hello alexg, thank you.
As said in some other post below, this is unfortunately not possible as of Firefox 57 and higher.
Quantum does not allow any add-on action in the bookmark manager.
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 14125892 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5Hi!
Thanks for this extension. It does the job really fast, but it is quite invasive over the standard behavior of the bookmark side-bar :
- no more "right-click + key" accelerator in the pop-up menu ( for my "Frenchy localization" at least )
- reverting to the standard-mode resets the bookmarks view to the default view : so sad ... ( you should really do something about it )
Edit : updated to FF 61 : create a folder works perfectly ! cool stuff !Hello Stan, I guess you mean key navigation in the menus ? Similarly you'll notice that key navigation doesn't exist (yet) on bookmarks either. I'll add that later (I made a note of it -> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues/46)
Indeed, because of limitations of the new Quantum extensions, the only way is to recreate the native interface, it cannot be extended anymore ... so it is imperfect (but improving ... ).
Not sure what you mean by "reverting to the standard-mode resets the bookmarks view to the default view", can you explain a little more ?
Note: on localization, I'll do French first, promis juré :-)
- par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13538810 de Firefox, il y a 2 ansNoté 5 sur 5Wow. Works so well!! Great replacement for the outdated "Go Parent Folder / Show Parent Folder" add-ons. And I can finally search for folder names!! Great job.
Edit: Any way to assign Ctrl+B to bring up BSP2? (Or maybe assign it another shortcut key?)Hello, as a matter of fact there is a shortcut key (displayed in the sidebar menu since FF 60.0.1).
However Ctrl+B is already assigned to open the native bookmark sidebar and cannot be redirected.
So the following keys have been assigned from the few free left I could find:
- Linux = Ctrl+Shift+B
- MAC = Alt+B (Cmd+Alt+B doesn't match with authorized key pattern .. it is rejected)
- All others, including Windows = Ctrl+Q
- par brain8891, il y a 2 ansNoté 1 sur 5Update: I am at a tough position, I love your add-on but can't risk it now. Why would kaspersky report a file that is basically a .txt file with urls in it? I am not a developer so reading your code won't help much. :(
It seems like I can't reply to the aaFn reply to my review, so I am replying to him here. This link (https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/wiki) took me to a 404 oage; however, now it is working!? The Reason I went there is to report the issue to you as Kaspersky detected "email@example.com\storage.js" as HEUR:Trojan.Script.Miner.gen
Since the Gethub profile was unenviable which looked suspicious, I removed Bookmark Search plus2. I am not sure why Bookmark search plus 2 need to store
after looking at the Permissions, it looks like Bookmark search plus 2 ask too many permissions
PLease explain the reason for each permission individually: and add it to the "About this extension" section
Access your data for all websites
Read and modify bookmarks
Read and modify browser settings
Access browsing history
Access browser tabs
Store unlimited amount of client-side dataHello brain8891, your previous review on the add-on disappeared and your rating changed also. May I ask for a feedback of why ? If there's something wrong which happened with the add-on, I'd like to know to get things corrected if possible.
Thank you in advance, aaFn.
------------------ Update following reply ---------------------
[lost previous reply, not sure why .. redoing it ..]
Hello brain8891, thank you for your detailed answer.
I guess there was a glitch on GitHub, I verified, everything is accessible and working now.
On the permissions, the reason for each is very simple, and most come from limitations of the Frefox API :-(. I documented them there for public refernce to all
-> https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/wiki/Permissions <-
as I believe this is making that post too long, hence had to redo it ..
The last permission in the list is the storage.js file you mentioned was alerted by Kaspersky. It is not executable at all.
It contains a structured set of bookmark titles, URLs and favicons. I guess one of the titles or URLs that you have bookmarked made Kaspersky react and believe there is something bad in there. If you have a doubt, open it with an editor, this is a json data file, there is no code in there and so no virus.
I hope this is clear and as transparent as possible .
If you want to get assurance by yourself, the code is open, plain text, and fully commented, so you can have a look at it at any time (take the .xpi file in your Firefox profile, add .zip to it, and open it with you preferred zip archive to look at the sources in files which are there).
You can also post issues on https://github.com/aaFn/Bookmark-search-plus-2/issues if you want more explanations.
------------------ Update following update :-) ---------------------
If one of your URL's or one of your favicons has something in it corresponding to its pattern base, then it will raise the flag.
The culprit is one of the URL's most probably (I do not believe it can be in the favicons). The problem would be to know which one ... Maybe you can send Kapersky the storage.js file if you still have it somewhere and ask them to explain which part of it (so which URL / which string) is raising the alert ?
That is probably the best thing to do.
Also, BSP2 is running inside Firefox, and Firefox is doing all they can to protect you (this is why by the way the add-on needs to request the permissions you listed and for which you now have the explanation).
Add-ons therefore cannot get out of Firefox to your computer nor do harm to it.
I don't know what to say more. As always, you have to exercise your own judgement. Kaspersky or Avast or whatever else are not absolute counter measures against things in the world, they miss some of the things, and they will overdo on others ...
