Suddenly it's not working well with Amazon, Outlook, Skydrive, etc. Causes freezes and slowdown.
В FireFox 17 пропала about:memory!
Like others have said before me, WE FINALLY FOUND OUT WHAT HAS BEEN DESTROYING OUR BROWSING EXPERIENCE, IT WAS THIS DAMN ADD ON, what the heck man, Amazon is incredibly slow, google image search grinds to a halt for a few seconds, and when ever I download anything, Firefox breaks down. JESUS, please fix this problem, I hate having to manually copy and paste a link, it's absolutely garbage. YOU GUYS GET ONE STAR FROM ME UNTIL YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!
EDIT: Right now, I disabled automatic hyperlinking, so every time I want to open a none hyperlinked link, I have to use the double click feature, it works everywhere like a charm without any problems just like classic linkification. I'm putting the main bulk of linkification on hold for now until the problem is fixed. You guys get three stars for now.
замораживает браузер на странице Amazone и др. Чуть было уже не перешёл с лучшего браузера на оперу. Блокировать такие расширения и авторов надо бы..
As others have mentioned here, freezes Amazon. Now editing review to add that it freezes the new Outlook Hotmail as well, and also many of Google's sites. I have switched to whitelist (only AutoLinkify ...), but that's a pain. This absolutely needs to be fixed.
I too can confirm what others have said in that i too was having browser freezing problems with sites like Amazon (even contacted Amazon) for a while now, so much so that i could only view Amazon on Chrome. Finally figured out it was this extension that was causing the problem and i have my beloved Firefox back!!
I'm going to tick the other box now, and disable the extension on sites by default and only allow the extension to work on some sites. A bit annoying, but better than nothing. Not sure why this problem exists in the first place; maybe there should be some kind of internal mechanism that prevents this from happening after its worked out as to why it happens with Amazon.
People who have a problem with Amazon and whatnot: There's a whitelist option in the Linkification settings! Just add Amazon.com to it.
For the past few weeks, I've been having problems getting the add-on to fully linkify long links. It linkifies only one portion of the link and leaves the other portion plain-text. Needs fixing, especially since this add-on is connected to my Youtube Link Title extension for Greasemonkey.
I am very sorry that I have to give 1 star, but this addon unfortunately brings certain internet pages, like amazon and netbookcheck, to a screeching halt (for 5 - 10 seconds the browser freezes almost totally, the same happens if you reload the page). Tested with Firefox 17.0.1 and Linkification 1.3.8.. Other users like VanDammage confirmed this as well. This can cause a lot of trouble and time loss. Further time loss to find out which plugin causes this. And unfortunately it is obviously linkification...
finally found out what was freezing/slowing Amazon to a crawl... this mother F'er!!!
Works well, but something about it is interfering and freezing Firefox whenever I open Outlook/Hotmail
@No Nothing: I stopped to wait and I have developed an alternate solution offering equivalent functionality (see Linkificator)
@GiPiero: Using Linkificator (alternate solution to unmaintained Linkification), you can manage this using regular expressions in white list
Glad To See The Addon Back-On-Track
I like to recommend this addon using mozbackup.jasnapaka.com , therefore I like to know
whether the addon developer is keen enough to keep maintaing this addon for firefox later versions ??
Can it read emails to?
Very useful addon for me, but for me it would be very useful if I could choose on which page formats enable it.
For example I could choose to enable it only for .txt files opened with firefox, but not for .html, .php, etc...pages.
The addon works great but i use a script on an imageboard that automatically adds new posts in a thread without need of page refresh, it would be nice if the new posts that contain links have the links clickable, here is the link to the creator of the script http://mayhemydg.github.com/4chan-x/
This addon is just great; but could u make the new tab appears next to the origin tab please ?
E.g: I click on a link and the new tab should be next to the current instead of at the end of the tab bar.
Hope u get this and make the right adjustment :)
This add-on works you need to modify the install.rdf file.
We'll have to edit the addon, make it compatible with your new version of Firefox and then save it.
What a XPI file?
An XPI file is a zipped file containing the files needed to install and use the extension.
In an XPI file, there is a file called install.rdf that includes several parameters including one that tells Firefox which versions it is compatible. So just change these settings.
Get the file. Xpi
If you already own Xpi file, skip this step.
If it is an extension hosted at https: / / addons.mozilla.org, here's how:
With a browser other than Firefox
(IE, Opera, Chrome, Safari ...)
Go to Mozilla Addons page of the extension.
Left click "Add to Firefox". If download save dialog comes up then save the file to your computer.
Right click> on the button "Add to Firefox" and go to properties.
In the "Properties", copy the link where the advanced button (for example : https: / / addons.mozilla.org / en-US / firefox / downloads / latest / xxxx / xxxxxxxx.xpi? src = addondetail )
Paste in the address bar the link (https: / / addons.mozilla.org / en-US / firefox / downloads / latest / xxxx / xxxxxx.xpi? src = addondetail)
A download window opens, save the file to your computer.
It's good, you have the file. XPI!
Edit the file. Xpi
Now extract the Xpi file with the any software like IZArk or 7zip.
You need to change the extension of the file. Rename your file's extension from xxxxxxxx.xpi to xxxxxxxx.zip
Extract the files from your extension, the zip file.
Find the file install.rdf and open it with a text editor such as Notepad
Look for the line
MaxVersion change or minVersion suit your needs: maxVersion to put 20 to be quiet until version 20 of Firefox.
Save the file
Re-archive the files to . Zip
Rename the file from xxxxxxxx.zip to xxxxxxxx.xpi
Install file. Xpi in Firefox
Open Firefox on any webpage
Do a drag and drop into Firefox window
A window asks if you want to install the extension!
"Not available for Firefox 11.0" please fix this.
Thank you for best addon. Using it n nightly 11 and is working nice. :-)
обновив на версию с офиц сайта,(не здесь) для поддержки 11 лисой, теперь глюк словил-- открывается вкладка (любая) и не загружается, часто даже через F5( и адрес пустой висит
To beautifulmnd : no, unfortunately, adding hotmail.com,login.live.com,outlook.com to Linkification exceptions don't change a thing to this new Hotmail freeze. At least I can see that this freeze only occurs at Hotmail opening and don't last more than 2-3 minutes.
Which is far too much of course, but ok, non-permanent.
I've been missing this add-on since Firefox 4.0 was launched, because there was never an update here and just now I realized that there is a newer version in the developer's site.
There are a few other add-ons that do a similar job, but none does it this good and with so much costumization options.
The only flaw I can point is the lack of an updated add-on button, instead of the old status bar icon.
Just hope it gets updated here as well.
