Xmarks 4.5.0.7 & Firefox 57.0 Working

Postby Capricorn1 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 9:12 am

YMMV, but at least for the moment, Firefox 57.0 (aka Firefox Quantum) is working with Xmarks version 4.5.0.7. I downloaded 4.5.0.7 from Major Geeks

I did a download (from server) to overwrite the local bookmarks. The sync finished, but there were no bookmarks showing. I did a repair bookmarks and they showed up. Synchronizing bookmarks seems to be working normally after that.

Hello,

Anything special you had to do? I am running ubuntu 17.10 and just installed FF 57 + Xmarks 4.5.0.7, and I can not even login to the ext. I installed it go to run the wizard enter user/pass and tells me I've logged in and it opens a new small window 'Ready to Sync' but is completely blank and no information is displayed.

Thanks!

No, I didn't have that issue. This machine is Windows 10.

I tried this with FF 57.0 and Xmarks 4.5.0.7 on an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS machine and got a blank window after logging in. However, when I resized the window, the buttons and such rendered. I downloaded bookmarks from the server (the first time) and it finished. I had to also do the repair step as before to have them show up though.

How did you install it? When i try to install 4.5.0.7 it says that it`s not compatible with Firefox 57?..

Huh, I wonder what that's all about?

I just tried it again with a laptop I hadn't yet upgraded. I upgraded to Firefox 57, then went to Major Geeks. When the add-on downloaded, Firefox immediately asked me if I wanted to install it. I installed it and restarted Firefox just to make sure it was copasetic. Then I did a Repair Bookmarks, and it appears I'm good to go. I didn't get any complaints along the way.

(Having done this a few times now, I believe the Advanced --> Repair Bookmarks in XMarks is necessary.)

Hi, I have also a problem.
I use a Windows 10 with 64bit and my try to download Xmarks was rejected by Firefox with a message "Not compatible with Firefox Quantum".
So, for me Firefox 57.0 is not working with any Xmarks version !!

What can I do ??

I use Xmarks together with Firefox since years with several PC's and tablets and it works very, very good !!
Now, after update of Firefox to Version 57.0 (Quantum) my try to download Xmarks was rejected by Firefox with a message "Not compatible with Firefox Quantum".
So, for me Firefox 57.0 is not working with any Xmarks version !!

What can I do ??

I'm on a couple of linux boxes, no way to update. or better, seems that xmarks installs, but when it's time to sync, an empty popup opens and just stays in place doing nothing

Did you try resizing the empty dialog? When I did that, the text rendered properly.
