Xmarks Sync

Best Bookmarks Manager Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

I've used Xmarks for more than 15 years. Xmarks is the best bookmarks manager I have found. I store a lot of bookmarks in folders in Firefox as my primary browser and I want them to show up in Safari when I use it. I also want my bookmarks to show up on my iPhone and iPad.

However, Xmarks can present challenges. First, syncing between Safari and Firefox requires monitoring the two sets of bookmarks and being careful they match up. Often, the "Favorites" in Safari will get out of sync with Firefox and it will take some effort to re-match them.

Second, getting my bookmarks to show up accurately on my iPhone and iPad is problematic. Since the bookmarks on my phone and iPad are driven by what Safari stores in iCloud, it is critical to make sure my Safari Favorites match my Firefox bookmarks. Sometimes, I have to wipe the Favorites saved on my phone and iPad first to get them to update.

Net, it takes some concentrated effort periodically to get my bookmarks to fully and accurately sync between Firefox and Safari AND across my laptop, iPhone and iPad... but it can be done with Xmarks. Without Xmarks, it simply would not happen.

2/18/17 - Update -- I recently tried Google Chrome and discovered that Xmarks not only works on Chrome, but it significantly FASTER than on Firefox. Why??

Morning Coffee

Thanks so much for fixing MC!!! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Count me too in those that love Morning Coffee (and I do mean the app kind). Thanks so much for fixing it for FF29.x!

Xmarks Sync

Generally the best Bookmarks Utility Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

I've used this add-on for years. It's truly great. The ability to go back in history and find a missing folder of bookmarks has saved my butt numerous times.

Having interacted quite a bit with the development team (to get help on issues), my sense is that this seemingly simple task is rather complicated. For example, the sister version "Xmarks for Safari" had several persistent flaws that only recently have been resolved. Net, it really does help to stay current with the latest version.

Morning Coffee

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Same issue here on FF 29... clicking on the MC icon is not working right now. To activate MC, I'm also going to the pull-down menu, clicking once on "Configure Morning Coffee" and pressing OK. Then, click on the MC icon. Pretty odd, but it works.

DoNotTrackMe

Masked Email feature in new version is a pain Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

I suppose DNTM is a good utility add-on although I really have no way of telling whether it really accomplishes anything. And, while you believe your new Masked Email feature is really great and liked by many, I find it to be a royal pain in the ass.
It consistently pops up in sites where I do want to submit my email address. I turned it OFF.

ADDED COMMENT: If the Masked Email feature popped up in a less intrusive way, and IF your instructions regarding when to use it or not use it was more clear, I would consider turning it back on. However, I don't like the way it blocks the process of filling in personal info and I frankly don't understand when or when not to use it.

Shorten URL (Bit.ly)

Good set of URL Tools Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

This is a good set of tools for managing URL's. I suggest it would be better if it had a menu in the preferences to select the optional tools to be ON or OFF.

Xmarks Sync

Xmarks is Freezing Firefox Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I've been a big fan of Xmarks for a long time. I've relied on it for syncing my bookmarks between 3 browsers. When Firefox 11.0 was released, Xmarks started causing Firefox to freeze EVERY time I did a manual update. I have uninstalled all other extensions to isolate this issue. Each time I re-install Xmarks and attempt to do a manual sync, Firefox freezes part way through the sync process. I cannot use Firefox now when Xmarks is installed.

This needs to be fixed. Submitting this issue on the Get Satisfaction Forum used by Xmarks is totally useless. Hopefully, the developer will read this and respond.
