Hi

I use a firefox addon called BookMark previews:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bookmark-previews-6271/

 

It works in conjunction with the firefox "organize bookmarks" funtionality to present a "carousel" of thumbnail image of each of your bookmarked websites as you scroll through them

 

It looks like the first image on the addon page (as per link above)

 

The Addon is no longer being maintained and only works with up to Firefox 3.5.

 

I'm still using firefox 3.5 as I have come to depend on the addon in my work.

 

I know I need to upgrade firefox but haven't found anything that works the same as bookmark previews

 

I'm happy to pay for software that does the job.

 

Does anyone know of anything

Thanks heaps.

Hi njwood60,

I have used Speed Dial on since FF 3 and currently with FF 6.  It is totally different to your add-on, but allows (if you want) pages of similar subject bookmarks with a preview of each site.  I have currently upwards of 250 sites bookmarked on Speed Dial and have tested it to confirm that it does appear not slow FF.

It can be found at:  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/speed-dial/

Good luck, let us know how you find it?

Regards

Hi jayesstee

Thanks so much for your reply.

I have installed speed dial to check it out. Unfortunately it won't preview your bookmarks, only pages that you "add" to speed dial. I really need something to preview my whole bookmark list

I also looked at foxtab:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxtab/

which will preview your open tabs or a list of sites you create. It has the sort of interface I want, but the same problem that you have to "add" your sites to a list. It won't just read your current bookmark list.

 

Thanks anyway

Sorry njwood60,

I guess you would have to invest the time to add your list to Speed Dial.  You could transfer them one at a time each time you access a  site, or you could "bite the bullet" and set aside time to "load" the app. with all your sites. You might want to prune your list anyway?

BTW FoxTab looks just as good.

Thanks for your response.
