There seems to be a bug in the Hotlist
plugin, if anyone can confirm?
In Hotlist>Edit, when right-clicking on "All bookmarks" (=on top), one can create new folders and new bookmarks, but afterwards they vanish in Nirwana
. If there were existing bookmarks moved into the new folder, they are deleted.
The same actions work fine if starting the right-click anywhere else further down.
I know the Hotlist is quite outdated and not exactly on top of the priority list
but if links are vanishing that's critical IMO. Perhaps a minimal fix would be to simply gray out the "new" entries if the mouse is over "All bookmarks"?
But while I'm at it, also a little improvement request, or two...:
Unlike with "Netscape" Bookmarks, there's no "Delete" entry in the Hotlist context menu. The DEL-key works fine, but am afraid many people nowadays don't know such 'advanced' shortcuts
Both "Bookmarks" and "Hotlist" Plugin
have no copy/paste/cut entry in the "Edit" context menus.
Well, and a "search" function is working fine too, just not in the menu either, so bet most users think there's just no way to search....
Thinking about it, not sure how many newbies will even realize that there is a context-menu at all?? I sometimes wonder about seemingly 'stupid' questions, but perhaps they aren't so stupid at all:
Actually in the "Bookmarks
" Edit pane there is a HELP-button, which is great, just missing the tip how to create new folders. Perhaps simply add a line in that help-alert that one can right-click to find more commands? And add hints about cut-copy-paste, or even add those to context menu?
Well, and add that help-button also for "Hotlist", because there is nothing at all to find...
Okay I stop now...
