(3) Select where you want to add the tabs to: "Catalog" or "Dashboard".

(4) If you selected the "Dashboard", then select a "Tab" and "Category" from the drop down lists.

Using the "Detect already bookmarked pages" tool

The "Detect already bookmarked pages" tool works the same way as it works when you bookmark only the active page. If neither of the tabs has been bookmarked yet then you will see the "Tabs not bookmarked yet" message at the bottom of the "Bookmark All Tabs" dialog box.

If any of the tabs has been already bookmarked you will see a message like "3 of 7 tabs already bookmarked":

New feature: Changing the size of the Tab titles

From now you can change the size of the Tab titles to smaller. This can be useful especially for users who have many tabs and the tabs can fit only in multiple rows taking much space from the screen.


To change the size of the Tab titles:
  1. Select Settings in the Bookmark Ninja main menu.
  2. Under "Dashboard settings" select Large, Medium or Small next to "Size of Tab titles". The default size is large, this is the size that the tabs have had until now.

Update 2020.01.06 rolled out

  • Made the height of the items in the tag autocomplete drop-down list smaller. If a tag was typed in the third row of the Tags input filed and there were 6 suggestions in the autocomplete list then the dialog had to be resized to see the last item in the list. Now the last item of the 6 suggestions is always visible.
  • Fixed bug: There were scenarios when the Category finder drop-down list on the Dashboard contained duplicated category names.
  • Updated footer year.

Improved session timeout handling

Today's update contains changes that will improve session timeout handling in desktop browsers:
  • The "Session Timeout. Please click on OK to reload the page." message typically came up after a while when the user opened and used Bookmark Ninja parallel in several browser tabs. From now in desktop browsers if page refresh is required the page will automatically reload (without showing any message) when the browser tab gets the focus.
  • The "Session Timeout" message has been renamed to "Page Expired" because it describes the situation more precisely (page can expire not just because of session timeout).
  • "Page Expired" ("Session Timeout") message will be still displayed when
    1. the user leaves Bookmark Ninja open in a browser window for a long time (e.g. Dashboard for 12 hours) without any interaction.
    2. a new build is rolled out to the server and the user has Bookmark Ninja open in their browser window.
