I read a thread and wrote an extension for Firebird.

Firefox0.9

0.6.3
New Extension Manager (Firefox0.9) install things.
0.6.4
Fixed confliction with toolbar enhancements.
0.6.5
Fixed regression on recent nightlies (around 20040715).
0.6.6
UIs on Bookmarks Manager came back (See the Screenshot).
0.6.7
Fixed some en-US locale problems. Thanks Wolfey.
Added a geeky preference linkchecker.referer. Type about:config in the urlbar.

The question mark in the screenshot means "Redirected from www.mozillazine.org/forums/ to forums.mozillazine.org/". Basically, orange question mark is equivalent to lblaine's "yellow".

lblaine wrote:State (Code) Meaning
good ( - ) link that successfully connects is left intact. no notification required.
error (red) link that returns a http error 404 is indicated or flagged as defunct
warn (yellow) link that timed out or failed to reach server after some time period (20 sec?)
warn (yellow) link that successfully rediects (yellow)


Red arrow:
*file found, and have been updated since last visit.
Blue arrow:
*file found, and have never been updated since last visit.
Green arrow:
*file found, and browser fails to get either update info or last visit info. e.g. mozillazine.org server doesn't tell us it's updated or not.

Blue exclamation mark:
*file not found.

Orange question mark:
* Not http protocol (https:, ftp:, file:, chrome:, about:, etc. ).
* Timeout.
* Redirected.
* Other server errors (Internal server error, Forbidden, etc. ).


Anyway, orange link is not normal but not always meaningless, while 404 link is definitely nonsense. If you find something suspicious, please tell me it together with its link url.


By the way, blue and orange colors are based on a famous TV animation.

Shouldn't you separate "redirected" from "timeout" and "internal server errors" ?

I added "Detect redirected links" to the options. I should have thought about icon a little more carefully. At first it needed only 2 colors...


Install Bookmarks link checker 0.4.2


Thank you all testing this addon.

Can you make it to scan the bookmarks recursively? I have plenty of folders in my bookmarks and have to open every folder to scan the bookmarks inside. Or am I missing something here.

Tools -> Options -> Extensions -> Bookmarks Link Checker -> settings. Then You will get a panel with my poor English.
