@legobuilder26 let me know if the instructions still make sense. In the process of adapting them from .bat to .ps1, they seem to have become less clear.
makes sense to me 👍
@Gwen-Dragon and @Pathduck , I'm so sorry to bother you for nothing. I found an extension - syncmarx - that is responsible of it. It syncs my bookmarks across other browsers and overrides the nicknames as it's not supported!
Sorry again. Hope it can help some of our community members in the future.
Have a great day,
I am on Linux, and used FF forever. When they took away the functionality to have a description in the bookmarks, I switched. I use the description to put password hints for all the various sites I have accounts on. Palemoon supports it, and I've been using it for several years now.
I like it, but it has recently started to lag in performance and support of some sites, which is odd. Because up until now it has been rock solid. It's annoying me to the point that I am thinking of switching again, so I am looking hard a Vivaldi.
Discovering in this thread that the import doesn't work for description was heartbreaking. This script seems promising... but is there any talk of making this actually WORK in the browser? I am afraid that if I use the script and get used to Vivaldi the descriptions could break, unintentionally or intentionally. I rely on them, so it's functionality I need.
@treego yep, that is the way I do it too... I have a Speed Dial "inbox" in the bookmark bar, but still, a context menu entry "add bookmark to speed dial" is missing.
Would help to bring the speed dial a bit more to the centre and integrate it better in daily bookmark tasks ..... alien
@anita-johnson said in Question about sync.:
I feel so insecure syncing while not knowing if stuff and whatt stuff is going to be copied or erased...
There are help articles which you fight find useful -
There's another alternative to accessing a specific bookmark:
If you assign nicknames for your frequently used bookmarks, you can open them by typing the nickname on the Address Bar and the bookmark will show up as the top result.
You can add nicknames in the Bookmarks Panel by editing each bookmark.
This feature is now ALL FIXED. The only thing to remember about moving the "Add active tab" and "Bookmarks" submenu items to the top of the submenu is to
click RMB on "[All Bookmarks]" and select the "Show 'add active tab'" selector from context menu when you want to move the "Add active tab" button,
move the Bookmarks submenu item directly on top of the "[All Bookmarks]" menu item, directly, without any dividers in between (otherwise it will not move there properly).
Thanks to Pesala's image I was finally able to understand how to fix this feature according to what I was used to / needed.
@Pesala On the flip side you could say that the reason all other browsers do this exactly the opposite way (new bookmarks go to the bottom) is that it's natural for most users to have arranged the 'most' used bookmarks on top. So, if every single new bookmark moves ALL other bookmarks down, that just makes things too tedious for the user to keep their favorite bookmarks on top. The default 'should' be at the bottom so that every new bookmark doesn't disturb the entire bookmark folder.
The reason you stated IMO doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the above reason, and this just seems like something that got overlooked by the devs.
If they make this an option, it would be ideal.
The "grey window" was from the same profile (actually I only have 1 - I created another to try some time ago, but have never used it).
I am referring to the "Bookmarks Bar", which I can toggle on/off from the "View" Menu.
Now, when I access through the "Bookmarks" Menu the "Bookmarks Toolbar" seems to have my new bookmarks, but the "Bookmarks Bar" does not.
I had always assumed these were the same; in the past editing "Manage Bookmarks" has changed the "Bookmarks Bar", but they seem to be different entities. Ideally I would like the "Bookmarks Bar", which I use the be the same I manage with "Manage Bookmarks".
PS Just checked the Preferences, and the "Bookmarks Bar" was set to "Bookmarks Toolbar" . I toggled through a couple of other settings, then back to "Bookmarks Toolbar", which seemed to resolve the issue.
I'd like this feature too; I inadvertently made a dup topic about this a few days ago.
I've got a folder of about 40 webcomics that I open on a daily basis, and Vivaldi stalls on me for about 20 seconds while it opens up the tabs.
@LonM Yes, I am talking about different profiles.
Unfortunately, import/export bookmarks does not work well since it has no function to select individual (specific) bookmarks and folders.
For example, I want to move all YouTube bookmarks to another profile without touching other bookmarks.
