Customer feedback survey

Last week we sent out a survey to the Bookmark Ninja customers. There were questions about the usage habits and also about what new features/improvements the customers would like to see in Bookmark Ninja.

We would like to thank those ones who submitted the survey!

All the feedback we received will definitely help us to plan the upcoming developments more efficiently.

Since we received so much feedback, it will take one or two weeks to review and evaluate them. I also saw some questions in the feedback, I'm going to answer them if email address was submitted.

The "Add to Ninja" pop-up is blocked in Firefox's latest update

The latest Firefox update (version 66) has come with some "surprise" again.

If you click on the "Add to Ninja" add-on button you will get the "Firefox prevented this site from opening a pop-up window" message even if you already have the Bookmark Ninja website in the exception list of the pop-up blocker. This worked fine in version 65 but not in version 66.

I have contacted the Firefox support forum, I will post if I have any updates on this.

There are 2 workarounds to fix the issue:

Turn off the pop-up blocker completely in Firefox (under Options/Privacy & Security/Permissions)

or

Use the "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet instead of the Firefox add-on (you can install it from this page with a simple drag and drop)

Please contact me at support@bookmarkninja.com if you have any questions.

Fixing the "Ninja extensions can't be installed in Firefox" issue

Some users complained about that they couldn't install the Bookmark Ninja extensions in Firefox.

It seems that the latest Firefox update (v65) broke something. Please follow the below steps to fix the problem:
  • Uninstall Firefox (Add or Remove Programs in Windows 10)
  • Reinstall Firefox from https://www.mozilla.org
  • Now you will be able to add the Ninja extensions

Please contact me at support@bookmarkninja.com if you have any questions.

Users on Mac please update the "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet and browser extension

On Mac OS the Add Bookmark dialog might be displayed with incorrect height, hiding the "Not bookmarked yet" message under the buttons (when "Detect already bookmarked pages" is turned on).

This issue has been caused by the latest updates of Chrome and Safari on Mac OS. If you have this problem please update the "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet and/or Chrome extension, that will re-adjust the height of the dialog.

To update the "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet button:
  1. Remove the current "Add to Ninja" bookmarklet from the Safari/Chrome bookmark bar (right mouse click on the bookmarklet button then select Delete)
  2. Install the new bookmarklet (drag and drop) from this page: https://www.bookmarkninja.com/installbrowserbuttons

To update the "Add to Ninja' Chrome extension:
  1. Right mouse click on the extension and select "Manage Extensions"
  2. Turn on "Developer mode" (in the top right corner)
  3. Click on Update

New Feature: Find Category when Adding a Bookmark

When you want to bookmark a page and you have many tabs and categories it may happen that you don’t remember which tab a category is on, or you don’t remember the exact name of the category. You can only find the category by selecting the tabs in the drop down list then going through the categories of each tab, which can be painful and makes the adding bookmark process long.

This new feature makes possible not just to quickly find a category but even the Tab and Category fields will be automatically filled out which makes adding bookmarks faster.

In desktop browsers:
  • (1) Click on the “Add to Ninja” bookmarklet or browser extension button.
  • (2) Click on the magnifier icon next to Category field, the Find Category dialog will popup.
  • (3) Start typing the name of the category (if the category name contains more words, you can start typing any of the words, it will find the category).
  • (4) After typing 2 characters, you will get suggestions in a drop down list.
  • (5) Select the Tab/Category from the list you are searching for (either with a mouse click or with pressing Enter).
  • (6) The Tab and Category fields will be automatically filled out based on your selection.


In mobile browsers:
  • (1) Tap on the “Add to Ninja” bookmarklet.
  • (2) Tap on “Find Category” below the Category field, the Find Category page will show up.
  • (3) Tap on the text field and start typing the name of the category (if the category name contains more words, you can start typing any of the words, it will find the category).
  • (4) After typing 2 characters, you will get suggestions in a drop down list.
  • (5) Tap on the Tab/Category in the list you are searching for.
  • (6) The Tab and Category fields will be automatically filled out based on your selection.

New Feature: Alphabetical Sorting of Categories

This feature has been requested by many Users. The categories are sorted from top to bottom in the columns and are divided among the 3 columns in a way so that the 3 columns will have similar heights as mush as possible.

To sort the categories in desktop browsers:
  • (1) Open the Dashboard
  • (2) Select the tab where you want to sort the categories
  • (3) Select "Categories/Sort A-Z" or "Categories/Sort Z-A"


In mobile browsers:
  • (1) Open the Dashboard
  • (2) Select the tab where you want to sort the categories
  • (3) Tap on "Turn ON Tab and Category Editor" at the bottom of the page
  • (4) Tap on "Sort Categories A-Z" or "Sort Categories Z-A"



Improvement: Collapse All/Expand All Categories

From now you can collapse or expand all category groups on a tab with a single click.

In your desktop browser:
  • (1) Open the Dashboard
  • (2) Select the tab where you want to collapse/expand the categories
  • (3) Select "Categories/Collapse all" or "Categories/Expand all"

If you want to rearrange the order of your categories it can be useful to collapse them all before starting to rearrange them.

Since the category implementation works in a different way in the mobile browsers, this feature is available only in the desktop browsers.
