Hey Torisugari- have you seen <a href="http://www.mozdev.org/source/browse/twingle/source/twingle/content/jsdav.js?rev=1.7&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup">this</a>? It's a webDAV implementation in JavaScript (-!)
.
For a working example, the <a href="http://mozile.mozdev.org">Mozile</a> project has embedded it.

Just accidently posted this to another thread:

I just ran into this solution and will be trying it out, but I have been having a similar problem with FireFox creating another Bookmark Toolbar folder.

I recently setup my own sync-it open source server to allow me to keep my 3-4 workstation's bookmarks synced. . .not only across computers, but also on the different browsers on each computer. So far it looks like it is working well, EXCEPT. . .there must be something really special about the Bookmarks folder, because it refuses to keep using the sync'd version. . .Firefox keeps adding another copy of the Bookmark Toolbar folder (that is totally empty). . .so I can't keep them sync'd across computers and still have them be used in the toolbar. The folder is still in the bookmarks. . .it is just that Firebird is creating another one and using that instead for the toolbar.

Is there any way around this? Can the location of the Bookmark Toolbar folder be changed to point to another folder. . .because ideally, I would like to have the bookmark Toolbar and my IE Links toolbar to be identical. I am trying to switch over to FireFox, but haven't been able to get it exactly the way I want yet. . .and still want to be able to use IE if needed.

Thanks.

Excellent Torisugari! Your extension is exactly what I have been waiting for now! Thank you very much!

I will say Toolbar button but any of those would be great!

Thanks again!

That may happens when you read the xml file which is created by the older version. If it's reproducible, please try new version and tell me what js console complains about. maybe fixed that problem.

No, and I've never heard about both webDav and Mozile. It sounds interesting protocol. And it reminds me, in this thread, someone who want to use only port 80. And I'm sure it's not so hard to port it from ftp to webdav. Have you ever used that js wrapper? It looks a bit complicated to me.

What is the difference between 0.8.1 and 0.8.2 Torisugari?

First, you can delete your post if yours is the last one. Please take a look at FAQ.
http://forums.mozillazine.org/faq.php#15

Then, the answer is yes, afaik. Since last October, firebird/fox's btf(bookmarks toolbar folder aka personal toolbar folder) is different from seamonkey's. To get seamonkey's btf, just specify the RDFResource which uri is "NC:PersonalBookmarkFolder". Firefox's, on the other hand, get the resource whose BookmarkToolbarFolder property is "true".

Not visible part. Mainly preventing user's mis-input (alert, confirm etc.).

Torisugari:
WebDAV is a kind of super-ftp -- a <a href="http://www.webdav.org/other/faq.html#Q2">network filesystem for the internet</a>, if you will. It's the protocol Apple uses for iDisk (also implemented by mozilla Calendar to facilitate sharing).
.
If you open an account at mac.com, you'll have an iDisk to play with. IE has webDAV built-in, although they call it "web folders" or some-such. The <a href="http://www.mozdev.org/source/browse/twingle/source/twingle/content/jsdav.js?rev=1.7&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup">wrapper</a> will look outstandingly simple, once you have a feel for it in action.
.
(ps: adding filter-sharing to Adblock -- that's what got me started on this.)

I tryed the new 0.8.2 and with a clean profile and with a new clean set of bookmarks and it is working fine now. That seems to have been the problem. So problem solved thanks. So far after that working great.

Thanks bdeonline. Well, I'm going to start cleaning up and localizing.

Windows has webdav as well (implemented as web folders, check this page for details on setup). Linux requires a bit more hacking and there are several solutions available.

I've set up a share, which I'll keep up for the rest of the day:
https://r39h92.res.gatech.edu/anonymous/testrepository/

user:anonymous
pass:firefox

It'll be down again tomorrow because it's not too smart to run an open share for any length of time. Cheers.

Oh, kewl. I was gonna start an iDisk for him. You could pm the info for a non-public account, so he could have a bit longer.

Nope its doing it again, I've been adding some bookmarks from windows xp computers today. I come home to Linux and the bookmarks wont work from the Bookmarks Toolbar again.
I took alook at my bookmarks.html from both Linux and Windows and they do have some different things:
Code: Select all
From Windows XP:
<DT><A HREF="http://www.mozillazine.org" ADD_DATE="1076862768" LAST_MODIFIED="1076862768" ID="rdf:#$ZZr9z2">Mozillazine</A>

Code: Select all
From Suse Linux:
<DT><A HREF="http://www.mozillazine.org" ADD_DATE="1077060467" LAST_MODIFIED="1077060467" SHORTCUTURL="" ID="rdf:#$jabJI2">Mozillazine</A>

Both using Firefox 0.8 and Bookmarks FTP 0.8.2
