Not sure if this has been posted, but I'd really like a way of viewing untagged bookmarks.
Something like
Code: Select all
place:folder=2ORfolder=5&queryType=1&terms=&excludeQueries=1&expandQueries=0

The trouble is the "terms" parameter can't be restricted to only search tags. Any ideas? Maybe a way of setting a default tag of "untagged" that automatically gets applied when you just click the bookmark star, although that wouldn't help with my many existing untagged bookmarks.

That's one of the 'nice to have' Places features that isn't getting much attention unfortunately...Bug 399799.

Thought I'd check in to see if there's any way to do the following:

Produce a list of all bookmarks in a particular folder, sorted by most visited.

place:sort=8&queryType=1&type=0&folder=5200&sort=8
does not work. I properly get a list of the bookmarks in that folder, but they do not obey the "sort=8", and are instead sorted the same as they are in the folder.

Replacing folder=5200, which indicates a normal bookmarks sub-folder, with folder=5202, a tag folder id, does not fix the problem. I still get a list of items in the tag, but the sorting is still not what I'd like.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but where do I enter these commands? Addressbar just gives a "protocol not known", same for bookmarks. I couldn't find anything regarding this, it always says "create a bookmark".

I'm using 3.1b3 - is that okay?

Hi,

with type=6 I can list the tags. Is it possible to list the keywords, too?

Hi, was hoping somone could help me out here. I'm just wondering if its possible to make a folder that will only query a certain tag? So i could name the folder lets say, 'most visited sports sites' and i will only give results for sites that i've tagged 'sports'. If that makes sense, thanks!!

I'm trying to list my unfiled bookmarks sorted by visit date, most recent first
Code: Select all
place:folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&sort=4&queryType=1

The above does not give the desired result.
However the following is good except for the fact that my bookmarks in my toolbar are included aswell.
Code: Select all
place:folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&folder=TOOLBAR&sort=4&queryType=1

Can anyone please tell me how to display only the tags I want to in one folder?

Say I have tags "forums" and "blogs" besides those two tags, I have many others.

I want to create a smart bookmark that displays only forums and blogs tags.

Easiest thing I could produce is something like
Code: Select all
place:terms=forums&OR&terms=blogs&folder=BOOKMARKS_MENU&folder=TOOLBAR&folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&expandQueries=0&queryType=1


It will probably hit some other bookmarks beside tags tho :oops:

I think I have a solution. If you repeat ‘folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS’, the bookmark somehow appears now as a search instead of as a folder, and the sort parameter is respected. Thus, what you want is this:
Code: Select all
place:folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS&sort=4&queryType=1

Yes, pretty strange.

Just started playing with this myself... it appears you create a new bookmark any which way you want, and make the location one of these queries. You'll need to restart Firefox in order to make the query work. At least, I do...
