xd's Ultimate Mozilla Firefox Recommended Add-Ons List - Page 9

post #81 of 112
Thread Starter 
I can make do with ctrl C; besides with my setup I have more things to do when I select text. To have everything in the clipboard right away would be a mess IMO.

I haven't updated in awhile and probably won't for awihle, but at the moment I'm experimenting with a few things - including an amazing stylish script I just found that adds animations & transitions to everything (i.e. fades to buttons, smoother movement)

I have found Multi-Row Bookmarks to be one of the more useful add-ons. Problem is it's being replaced by "Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus 1.0" which I would classify as SPAM.

Quote:
A new developer, multirow, has taken over development. Multirow Plus is available at no charge and pays for development through affiliate relationships.
and is justifiably panned by reviewers

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rplus/reviews/

I really like this add-on but don't wish to support affiliates by using the new version.

Any suggestions?

Until I resorted my bookmarks into folders I found that especially useful
It had it's incompatibilities with Firefox 4 and I have yet to find a bug-free alternative - even this one is pretty buggy

I haven't had time to update this list much either in the past weeks but soon it will resume

I really wish that Firefox had the feature that Chrome did with the whole syncing extensions etc. Like, say if I did a reinstall. In Chrome it will automatically know what extensions I had and download them and boom. I'm off. In Firefox, I have to go back and redownload them

Does the sync feature not save addon settings as well? I thought it basically saved everything?

Next time, copy all of these files to a safe location (copy them while Firefox is closed) and then put them back after installing Firefox again:

Code:
C:\\Users\\mbudden\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles\\wzw0lfeu.default
Of course, "wzw0lfeu.default" is a folder name that's randomly generated upon installation, so navigate to the folder below, and then go into the randomly-named ".default" folder:

Code:
 C:\\Users\\mbudden\\AppData\\Roaming\\Mozilla\\Firefox\\Profiles
So once all of those files in that ".default" folder are copied to a safe place, perform the reinstallation, open Firefox, close Firefox, copy these files back to this folder, and then open Firefox again.

At this point, the only thing you will have to do is re-install your plugins (like Flash, Shockwave, etc., not your extensions). Except, you may still have to make Firefox check for updates to your Extensions in order to get them all to work (it's just a way to trick Firefox).

This is all much easier than it sounds, and it means that you get 100% of everything you had before - including all of your about:config tweaks.

Use FEBE (a profile backup tool) or manual profile backups, that can be reimported by running "firefox.exe -profilemanager" on next boot
I keep my profile in a zip file on my flash drive & other hard drive just in case in addition I run FEBE backups every week

xd_1771, are you referring to Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar? Which is convenient for listing the oft visited sites in Tab form w/out needing to plow through a list of Bookmarks, which may or may not contain these often visited sites. Put another way that is hugely inconvenient.

I really don't understand how organizing your bookmarks, something we all do can rival the convenience of Multi-Row Bookmarks.

Pls explain.

Before my bookmarks bar was like in the screenshot; tons of (text-less) icons that took up more than 1 bar's space so I had to use two. When I went up to Firefox 4, the original Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar addon I used was incompatible. I couldn't find any alternatives, so I decided to re-sort all my bookmarks into folders that fit on one row, and it's been working ever since.
