This could be an awesome addon, but, actually isn't working correctly. The anchors don't erase; well they erase, but reappear on page refresh. If you delete the bookmark the anchor persists. Why doesn't exists a menu item for delete selected anchor, bookmark, or both? An option for manage all anchors is needed too. The toolbar is annoying, and completely unnecessary in my opinion, wasting a precious screen space; please remove it and shift all the options for the right click menu. As I said, this could be an indispensable addon, but it needs design and usability improvements. Regards.
>The anchors don't erase The ‘erase’ button means to hide a highlight on a page. It is does not mean to restore hyperanchor format URL to normal URL. However, your indication is right and we also think to add a function to restore.
>The toolbar is annoying You can customize the location of toolbar. Please right-click on the Firefox toolbar and select ‘customize’, and you can move the HYPER-ANCHOR toolbar.
>this could be an indispensable addon, but it needs improvement. I quite agree. Thank you for your opinion.
A page once bookmarked with Hyper-Anchor will always open at the selected place. The bookmark can not be removed. The eraser tool provided in the statusbar button doesn't work. Right-clicking in the page restores the bookmark.
The eraser button is to erase highlighted color on the page. To remove a bookmark, please right click and select delete on the bookmark on the sidebar. I understand your inconvenience. We will consider your advice.
I'll give it 5 stars because it works perfect and I have no troubles at all.
But I also have a suggestion that I hope the developer will consider. I was hoping that maybe we could be able to add anchor links to ordinary webpages, so we don't have to go into our bookmarks to get to a page we want, we can just set an anchor in a specific page and whenever we justy happen to stumble onto that page through surfing (as opposed to going to that page via our bookmarks) we will be directing to the anchor right away.
Not sure if this is even possible with the current script, but hopefully it can be implemented. As I would like to add multiple anchors to one domain, and then just cruise through that domain, going to all the pages with my anchors, without having to go to my bookmarks for 3, 4 or more pages in that domain which I have added anchors to.
Was working fine, but has suddenly started throwing up "catch : InternalError: too much recursion" and "TypeError: node is undefined" errors and not jumping to the saved page position. Would love to keep using it but it doesn't work any more.
This is really good add-on and I would love to give 5 stars for it but the text labels for each button on the toolbar are not available when selecting Icons and Text in the Customize Toolbar window.
The tooltips are there, but not the button labels which slows things down a lot when you are first learning what each button function is. I have to hover over each button and wait for the tooltip to show up just to view its function. I still recommend it though.
Does its job well. Thanks to the developers for implementing such important extension for Firefox bookmarks.
I'd suggest adding possibility to remove highlight after it's been seen by user (when it's unnecessary). For this purpose text might be highlighted by regural text selection (like that created by dragging mouse over text) instead of the custom yellow background.
