Great alternative to humble new tab page (on chrome) Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Works perfectly - this is my best start screen/bookmarks extension.

Great Extension Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

1 issue away from 5 stars and my contribution. Using about:bookrect as my home page loads with an error on Firefox startup.

Just what I was looking for... and a request. Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

I tried a lot of addons to get a better access to my bookmarks. This one is the best by far. It has a pretty UI and seem lightweight, simple and clean.

For the 5th star I do have request:
I use the about:bookrect as a pinned tab to have general access to my bookmarks. I would love to have the option that bookmarks open in a new tab.

Useful new tab! Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

This is the best alternative to Chrome "Humble New Tab" for Firefox that I've found so far.

Unfortunately, even when I my homepage url to "chrome://bookrect/content/index.html", it doesn't quite load the addon properly on startup.

Blank grey tab on 47.0.1 Waardering 1 van 5 sterren

Very interested in this extension. Unfortunately It will not work on first install:
- Windows 10
- Latest Firefox
- No js blockers
I see a blank grey tab with a searchbar at the top and the 3 blue buttons in the bottom right. Clicking them does nothing. Following 'Options' from the extension manager takes me to this same blank grey tab.
Am I doing something wrong?

hi erik,

thank you for your feedback. i do unfortunately have no other reports like this, which makes it hard to track the issue down. i furthermore am not able to reproduce it, which is why i am stuck trying to resolve this issue. could you have a look into the browser console to see whether there is an error popping up?

thank you - coderect

new versions are worse and worse Waardering 3 van 5 sterren

new version doesn't load on the start of the FF. It doesn't work in privatу mode. It heavier. Why don't simply keep 3.2.1 as a fork. It's working best of all.

> new version doesn't load on the start of the FF.

this is not part of the addon itself. if you would like the addon to be shown when firefox starts, then you have to go to the settings of firefox and set "about:bookrect" as your homepage.

> It doesn't work in privatу mode.

i just tried and it worked without issues for me. what do i have to do to reproduce this error?

> It heavier.

you requested a two / column layout in your last review. i accordingly added one but now you say it is too heavy. i am confused.

> Why don't simply keep 3.2.1 as a fork. It's working best of all.

you can get the old versions here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookrect/versions/

Not bad, but ... useless ... Waardering 2 van 5 sterren

Not bad, but useless and confusing ....

If You want to work on bookmarks, use your mind to create a 2 panes explorer to organize them !

THAT is what is missing as far as Fx goes ...

And if you are searching such a tool, dear readers, invite this genius to create such à tool ! He will make some money and be reallly useful to the community !

Better yet, if any reader knows of such a tool ... please, give us a link ...

LOL

Bad URL Waardering 4 van 5 sterren

about:bookrect - Bad URL
Bookmark Tab 4.2.1 + Firefox 45.0.2
Thank you

When you run browser - bad
Refresh the page - it is started
This only occurs at start

chrome://bookrect/content/index.html
the empty window with settings "Bookmark Tab" opens

hi serzh,

thank you for your message, your feedback is highly appreciated. i am having trouble reproducing this error though, have you tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the addon?

thanks again - coderect

edit: since you provided more information by know, i might know what the problem is. when firefox is started, it does apparently not immediately allowed extensions to add custom urls. you can therefore try and use this one instead: chrome://bookrect/content/index.html

Bookmark Tab Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

I forgot to add in my last review that this developer's utility, in say, just a year's worth of work in Firefox, saves me a significant amount of time. This young man's original hard work certainly warrants at a minimum a small donation and I was happy to make a nice donation myself which I think was his first ever. It was a small price to pay for the time he has saved me and well worth it!

hi there,

once again thank you so much for your support!

Very nice! Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

I've been looking to replace https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/bookmarks-tab/ for a while. This is just what I want.

If anyone else dislikes the folder icon, you can css it away.
img[src='chrome://BookRect/content/assets/images/treeFolder.png'] {
background: url('http://files.softicons.com/download/internet-cons/hamburg-icons-by-pc.de/png/16/folder.png') no-repeat;
display: block;
-moz-box-sizing: border-box;
box-sizing: border-box;
width: 16px; /* Width of new image */
height: 16px; /* Height of new image */
padding-left: 16px; /* Equal to width of new image */
top: -3px;
position: relative;
}
Just change the background url to a 16x16 image you like better.

CodeRect, I saw a github repo for this? Are you accepting pull requests or were you planning on keeping this a solo effort?

hi valadil,

thank you very much for your message, i highly appreciate your feedback. the newest version hopefully includes a more appropriate folder icon per default.

thanks again - coderect

Preverse state of opened folders Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Very useful add-on, but preserving state of opened folders doesn't work on Linux Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Firefox 35.0. All folders are closed every time new tab opened. On Windows 7 it works correctly. Please, fix it.

Deze beoordeling betreft een eerdere versie van de add-on (3.2.1.1-signed). 

hey oleg,

thank you very much for your review - i highly appreciate any feedback.

i am currently working on a complete makeover of the addon and preserving states might not find their way into this new version, due to performance reasons. if so however, i will make sure that they work on linux and windows.

you can by the way view the progress on github - https://github.com/CodeRect/bookmark-tab

stay tuned and thanks again - coderect

Good work! Seregab, to make 2 columns you can add line "-moz-column-count: 2;" to body stylesheet

hi cyberian,

thank you very much for your message, i highly appreciate your feedback. the newest version of the addon finally introduced multiple columns natively.

English:
I like it. It's simple, clean and fast but on the other hand, uses a high percentage of resources (compared to others extensions that I have installed) and the search engine does not work with tags.
I hope you have thought something in mind to solve these two problems because I really like the extension. Thank you.


Spanish:
Me gusta. Es simple, limpia y rápida pero, por otro lado, usa un elevado porcentaje de recursos (a comparación con los demás complementos instalados que tengo) y el buscador no funciona con las etiquetas.
Espero que tengas pensado algo en mente para solucionar estos dos problemas pues en verdad me gusta la extensión. Gracias.

hi orange,

thank you very much for your message, i highly appreciate your feedback. the newest version of the addon includes tags within the search and should be significantly more efficient.
