Discussion about official Mozilla Firefox builds
I am using Firefox 13 and have noticed that Live Bookmarks load "on demand".
I hate this new implementation immensely.
Is there a way to disable "on demand" and have Live Bookmarks work like previous Firefox versions?
Moving to Firefox Builds, where pre-release versions are discussed.
I set the following to true:
I think it does what I want.
it's not for disable "on demand" loading.

No, it can't be disabled. The asynchronous/on-demand implementation replaced the synchronous/timed-reload implementation.
The old synchronous API is still around, but it is planned to be removed as well, if it hasn't been already.
Reference bug (do not comment in it):
There have always been ghosts in the machine... random segments of code that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul...
Thanks for the info. Nothing on that page you linked to though.
Also. I have "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground" set to "true", but it doesn't behave like stated above. It opens in the current tab.
And I haven't noticed Live Bookmarks loading "on demand" since changing it to "true".

URL got screwed up in copy/paste, I guess.
Try this: http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries
Edit: Okay, it's the site that's being dumb. Go to that link, then replace the ":" bit with a single colon (:).
Interestingly, the link above doesn't have "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground" listed.
But it mentions it in the meaning of "browser. tabs. loadInBackground".
Sorry, but I somehow got a double post.
You can delete your last post if no one has replied.
In fact, if I delete this post, you can delete yours as, then, I wouldn't have, in essence, replied.

I think this bug is what you are looking for:
Bug 734073 - Add a preference to set expiration interval for async livemarks
Hell, Bluefang gives the answer... see many of the last comments, as: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.c ... 13588#c106
In short: for to recover the previous behaviour: no. Wait for someone uploading a extension for this to AMO.
Please restore this feature! It was really useful for me, to cache live bookmarks before leaving a wifi area and being able to still read the headlines on my way.
I can't understand why Firefox keeps losing features (download status bar, direct display of all previous pages instead on long-click on the previous button, ...), relying on extensions to bring them back. I miss the 3.6 branch, which was really covering my needs, at least from a usability point of view.
