Reliby - Reload all Live Bookmarks extension
My latest extension Reliby was made because of a request from a colleague of mine. Mr KimBlim had the problem that when he starts Firefox while being offline and then connects, his live bookmarks didn't load because of being offline at start. So he needed an extension to force reload of all his live bookmarks and Reliby was born.
In Firefox, Live Bookmarks are automatically updated every 30 minutes. That's alright for most times, but sometimes it's nice to force reload them.
And Reliby does just that. It reloads all of your Live Bookmarks with a push of a button.
Reliby can be accessed by adding a button to your toolbar or by using Bookmarks > Reload Live Bookmarks
perhaps that should be a feature request, whenever one goes from ofline to online mode reload all live bookmarks.Comment by poningru at February 22, 2006 03:29 PM | Permalink
Well, I believe Live Bookmark's content should be saved with session, a feature coming in 2.0.Comment by funTomas at February 22, 2006 05:23 PM | Permalink
thanks for this very useful extension
it's very useful when you change network connectivity
for example, when you hibernate a laptop and move it between networks as I often do
perhaps, it could also be mixed with the switchproxy extension which reload the current page when you change your proxy configuration.
Thanks for this extension.
I've got a feature request. It would be nice if live bookmarks could be loaded only when the button is pressed. I have a lot of livemarks, and when I open Fx I have to wait a bit before surfing, because they eat up my bandwidth while they all load.Comment by »Q« at February 24, 2006 05:09 AM | Permalink
Hi, nice extension, I was dreaming about this one for ages :-)
I don't see the icon next to the toolbar however ?

Stef: You have to add the button to the toolbar yourself. Rightclick on the toolbar and select Customize... and drag the Reload Live Bookmarks button to your toolbar.Comment by Henrik Gemal at February 24, 2006 11:30 AM | Permalink
Q: I'm not sure it can be done. I have to look into the source of Firefox and see if it can be done.Comment by Henrik Gemal at February 24, 2006 12:07 PM | Permalink
hmm, and i was hoping the new Places would pursue the wishlist wish of wanting control of livemark loading.Comment by splib at April 15, 2006 02:44 AM | Permalink
Re Q's comment, that's what I'm specifically googling for; my dial up connection is effectively destroyed when I start up, it takes ages to do anything. I could delete all my livemarks, but I don't want to.
Great extension though, something to think about when I'm onto broadband.Comment by MatGB at June 2, 2006 08:41 PM | Permalink
I could also really use what Q and MatGB are looking for, for much the same reasons. (And yup, google brought me here.)
