Fix for the broken favicons on the Dashboard

We've found that the favicons of some websites got broken mainly in Firefox and Safari. There have been some changes in the API of the Google service that we are using to display the favicons, this caused the issue. We have made some adjustments in our code, now the favicons are properly displayed again.

New feature: Edit already added bookmark in the "Add Bookmark" dialog box

If you use the "Detect already bookmarked pages" feature, from now you will be able to view and edit the properties of the existing bookmark in the "Add Bookmark" dialog box:

(1) Make sure the "Detect already bookmarked pages" switch is turned on on the Settings page under "Add bookmark settings" (select Settings in the main menu of Bookmark Ninja).

(2) To bookmark the current web page in your browser click on the "Add to Ninja" browser extension or bookmarklet button.

(3) If the web page has already been bookmarked you will see the "Page is already in..." message at the bottom of the "Add Bookmark" dialog box.

(4) Click on "Edit" next to the "Page is already in..." message.

(5) The properties (title, URL, tags, notes, location: catalog or dashboard/tab/category) of the existing bookmark will be loaded in the dialog box and the caption of the"Add" button will change to "Save". If more than one copy of the bookmark with the same URL exists then the latest edited/added one will be loaded.

(6) Make any changes if necessary then click on the "Save" button. No new copy of the bookmark will be added but the existing bookmark's properties (including its location) will be updated.

The feature is available in mobile browsers, too:

Security improvements

Today's update contains several security improvements.

One of the improvements is about how the password/username change is handled from now:

Changing your password
If you change your password, you will be immediately logged out on all devices and be required to re-login.
Until now you were required to re-login on other devices only when you restarted the browser.

Changing your username
If you change your username, you will be also logged out on all devices and be required to re-login.
Until now the username was automatically updated on other devices, no re-login was required.

Firefox extensions moved to the Firefox add-ons store

Until now Firefox extensions have been hosted on the Bookmark Ninja server. Today the extensions were moved to the Firefox add-ons store. If you install the extensions from there, the extensions will be automatically updated in your browser if new versions of the extensions are available.

It is recommended to remove your current Bookmark Ninja extensions in Firefox and install the ones from the Firefox add-ons store. To install the extensions select "Tools/Install Browser Buttons" in the main menu of Bookmark Ninja, then click on the links next to the Firefox icon. The links will lead you to the extensions in the Firefox add-ons store.

Changes in accessing the Dashboard in desktop browsers

Unfortunately Google has removed the "Ninja Dashboard" extension from the Chrome web store. The reason for the removal is that the extension doesn't have any real functionality, it just opens a web page, which is true.

As an alternative solution please use a direct link to launch the Dashboard:
  1. In the main menu select "Tools/Install Browser Buttons" to open the "Install Browser Buttons" page.
  2. Drag and drop the "Ninja Dashboard" button to the bookmark bar.
This button has been updated, too, from now it's a simple link to the Dashboard, it's not a bookmarklet anymore.

If you want you can also add the My Bookmarks page to the bookmark bar: open the My Bookmarks page in the browser then click on the star icon next to the browser's URL field and add the link to the bookmark bar.
