ubimarks-0_4_2 (addons)

  • Trying to follow the code changes in firefox/mozilla
  • Corrected minor errors related to status info
  • uuid component compilations stopped working with firefox changes - disabled uuid addresses temporarily so we use http:// addresses until uuid component is part of firefox (or I get inspiration to find out what is wrong in the compilations)
  • Polished code so it is easier to understand
  • Added presentation objects that can define order for bookmarks or subtopics. Still somewhat experimental.

Version 0.3 beta


  • Uses HTTP PUT and FTP to update bookmark files on the Web.
  • Some user interface improvements but more is coming.
  • Composite stores are not used for update anymore as they were not working intuitively mostly they are used to help keep track of stores.
  • Some error corrections.
Windows Linux/unix Other
install ubiwin-0_3_8.xpi install ubi-0_3_8.xpi install ubi-0_3_8.xpi (bookmark and topic ids are temporary)

Tested with

  • Firefox 1.0.6. in Windows
  • Mozilla 1.7.8. in Linux
  • Note (will probably not yet work with Firefox 1.5 and I have not been able to test Mac much)


  • It seems that sometimes there is a delay between upload onStopRequest and the uploaded file being available for Refresh. The user is notified that file was uploaded but changed only appear after closing/opening the browser or some other way that causes a new load of RDF document.
  • With FTP use URIs containing the username and passwd e.g.
    An URI without the passwd should also work. However, RDF Refresh in Mozilla, that reads the file back from the Web, occasionally looses information about the passwd. This problem might be connected to the previous one.

Old versions

Windows Linux/unix Other
install ubiwin.xpi install ubi.xpi install ubi.xpi (bookmark and topic ids are temporary)

I tested this with Mozilla 1.7.5 in Linux and Mozilla 1.7 and 1.7.5 in Windows XP.

Firefox 1.0 seems to work mostly, I'm still polishing some differences in the user interface, such as nonexisting grippies.
