- Added Download Links option. Download all links on the current page. Disabled by default.
- Added Validate Links option. Validate all links on the current page. Disabled by default.

- Added Dont Match Text option to context menu in the Select Links dialog.
- Added Copy Links to Clipboard option to context menu in the Select Links dialog.
- The Select Links dialog pref is now per default set to 0 meaning always show.
Still not working with XML pages using XHTML anchors. Maybe you could use document.getElementsByTagNameNS( xhtmlNamespace, 'a') insted of document.links?
Besides from this. This is the extension to have (excellent when using your blogupdates page).Comment by Erik Arvidsson at August 27, 2003 11:51 PM | Permalink
Good idea. I've tried something like it earlier but I couldn't get it working. But:
seems to work fine!
I'll incorporate the changes into the next release of Linky.Comment by Henrik Gemal at August 29, 2003 02:04 PM | Permalink
This should work as long as you do extra tests. For example the XML doc might have other a elements belonging to other namespaces. (This should be trivial however.)
Keep up the good work neighbor ;-)Comment by Erik Arvidsson at August 29, 2003 06:45 PM | Permalink
"do extra tests"
Not sure what you mean?
get all links?
Let's assume that there are other elements from other namespaces with the local name "a". Therefore you should check that there is an href (xhtml href) there as well before assuming it is a link. You still need to do that if you use getElementsByTagName("a") since that will include named anchors as well.
While I'm at it I think that hidden links inside the selection should not be included:
<p><a href=...>...</a> ... <a href="..." display:none;">...</a> ...</p>
or a parent node that is hidden. You can see the problem at your page (http://gemal.dk/mozilla/blogupdates.html ) when selecting more than one of the visible links the links inside the tool tip will be included as well.

I'm not sure how this can be done. Any clues?Comment by Henrik Gemal at September 1, 2003 03:25 PM | Permalink
Prefs not showing up automatically in Mozilla 1.7.2 about:config.
"Download all links" doesn't actually download anything.
Tested using Linky2.1.Comment by Blah dude at September 14, 2004 03:27 AM | Permalink
