It says incompatible because I'd not gotten around to testing with 3.6 yet. What exactly do you mean by 'bumped and nothing'? Nothing works? No issues, so wondering why it's listed as incompatible? Thanks for your input!

^^ That was a very helpful post, wasn't it? Sorry about that! Image

1. On install, the addons manager has it disabled as incompatible with 3.6b1. Bumped with MR Tech Toolkit, set options for TMP and left click, restarted.
2. Ctrl+Lckicked bkmrks items in the Bookmarks drop down menu - tabs open but menu closes after each click.
3. The same with TMP permissions - they get checked/unchecked but the menu closes between each click.
4. The same with Mclick.

No errors in console.
I normally don't use Bookmarks toolbar menu, i hide it actually. But i do use the bkmrks toolbar (well, a custom button - one click drops bkmrks toolbar as a context menu). Does this ext. suppose to work with the bkmrks toolbar? If not yet, would you consider adding it?

TIA!

Thanks for the info, makondo. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to reproduce this issue. If you turn off the TMP option and restart, does middle-click and ctrl-click then work? Did you previously use 1.5.3 beta 1? If so, did middle-click and ctrl-click work properly in that version? Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling Stay-Open Menu? Restarting the computer?

Yes, Stay-Open Menu should work with the Bookmarks Toolbar items. I don't know whether it would work with your custom button though. If not, let me know what is adding the custom button, and I'll look into it.

Actually, i install every beta release you had here - it has never worked for me. However, i used to be able to at least get a tab out of a click on the bkmrks toolbar. Now it doesn't do even that - as i said, nothing happens. Bookmarks do not open at all. It works in a clean profile with MR Tech Toolkit and Stylish only installed there. But there's no change in this profile with TMP disabled (when TMP is enabled, nothing happens when clicking permissions).

The button puts bookmarks toolbar into a left click dropdown menu. It's the Bookmarks Toolbar Menu button on this page (notice, there 2 different buttons. Be warn though, this page may take half-an-hr to load :roll: ). The Bookmarks button seems to at least open bookmarks in a tab but menu doesn't stay open. Never did for me, not on Mclick, not on Ctrl+L/anyclick.
Anyway, as tested in a clean(-er) profile, it does work with 3.6b1 (made compatible). But not with my exts./set up.
Sorry for disturbance :)

What was the last version of Stay-Open Menu and Firefox that actually worked together properly for you then? Or are you saying no versions (beta or otherwise) of either have ever worked together properly for you?

makondo wrote:But there's no change in this profile with TMP disabled (when TMP is enabled, nothing happens when clicking permissions).

That seems to conflict with your previous statement that they got checked/unchecked but the menu closes. What am I misunderstanding?

Just to make certain I am understanding properly, are you are saying that the menu is not staying open for you in your normal profile when using the default Bookmarks dropdown from the menubar (File, Edit ... Bookmarks ...) as shown in image 1 of 5 under 'Image Gallery' at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6459?

If so, then then there is likely some conflict with another extension. It would be very helpful if you could find which extension is causing the problem. See steps 2-4 under the heading 'Extension Issues' at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_-_Firefox. Of course, if you have some other extension that has a 'keep menu open' option and it is set to not keep the menu open, that might indeed cause it to close. OTOH, if you are using some button and not the default menu for this, then I would not expect the menu to stay open, and I would need to know what button you are using.

With the 'Bookmarks Toolbar Menu' button you refer to: Unless middle-click works for you with that button when Stay-Open Menu is disabled, the button just doesn't actually support middle-click at all. But, I think I can probably add some bits to Stay-Open Menu to get at least middle-click working (opening items in tabs and leaving the menu open) with it.

Testing so many exts./versions .. i'm confused now too Image
1. It works in the profile where i have only 2 other exts. (MR Tech Toolkit and Stylish).
2. In the default profile (with 34 exts.), when clicking TMP' permissions, they do get checked/unchecked properly but the the menu doesn't stay open. It closes on every click. It also doesn't work on Mclick (permissions get checked/unchecked on the usual L or R click) - nothing happens on Mclick. Tested with all exts. disabled but TMP and SOM enabled.
3. Bookmarks menu also closes with every Mclick, but stays open with a Lclick (which is perfect if it would work with all exts. enabled!).

About the button. If you could make SOM work with it, it would be really great! The button is an awesome space saver on the toolbar, i can't imagine using Fx w/out it. TIA!

EDIT: OK, after quite a bit of testing, i conclude - it's Custom Buttons². I know they do something with menus, but have no idea what it is about. I will let them know but ... with forum being snailslow and developers not responding to any requests ... i'm afraid it might take a while to get their attention.

Thanks for your time, custom.firefox.lady!

For the TMP permissions items, they should stay open on left-click, if Stay-Open Menu's TMP option is on. Middle-click is not expected to do anything here. In a new profile with only TMP, Stay-Open Menu, and Custom Buttons² (and it's associated Bookmarks Toolbar Menu button), I cannot reproduce any of your issues. Nevertheless, if disabling Custom Buttons² fixes your issues, you might want to look for an alternative. I would recommend Toolbar Buttons. Their 'Toolbar Bookmark Menu' appears to be a good substitute for your current button. It's available separately and you don't need to deal with a slow-loading site. Glad to be of assistance, hope this has helped.

...About the button. If you could make SOM work with it, it would be really great! The button is an awesome space saver on the toolbar, i can't imagine using Fx w/out it.

According to item #3 at http://custombuttons2.com/en/wiki/extension-faq you are permitted to edit the button's code. So...

Right-click 'the button'. Select 'Edit button'. Click the 'Initialization Code' tab. Just before the line
Code: Select all
that.appendChild(mPop);

try inserting a line containing:
Code: Select all
mPop.setAttribute("onclick", "BookmarksEventHandler.onClick(event);");

Click 'ok' and restart fx so that button gets re-initialized.
This should allow support for middle-clicking, and middle-clicking the button's items should keep the menu open via Stay-Open Menu. (It won't add support for Stay-Open Menu's left-click, ctrl-click, or auto-closing features.)
Since I cannot reproduce your other issues, I have no way to tell whether this is compatible with your other ext/setup unless you try it and let me know. If not, it likely won't work for you if I add partial support for the button via Stay-Open Menu either.

Thanks, but it didn't work for me - the menu still closes after each click Image. I appreciate you taking the time though! I will have to figure which ext. it conflicts with and maybe then i'll be able to use it, thanks!
