Hrm...it looks like I should be using XPCNativeWrappers since I am accessing content DOM, right? Or is the way I am accessing the page URL and title okay?

it would be useful to add contextmenu option "Set to current clipboard"

@chuonthis:
Thank you VERY much for this extension.
For me, surfing a lot in forums with long threads over 50 sites, it is VERY useful.
You made my day!!

cyberrus, ooh, that's a great idea. Should that only be for the URL or the title too? Also (sorry for getting so technical), should there be a check to see if the clipboard contains a valid URL? But basically any text string can be a valid URL...or maybe a confirmation box that says "Set URL to _____? Yes/No"? Or would that be too obtrusive? Maybe an option for a confirmation box?

tombik, you're welcome. :)

IMHO clipboard to title transmission is absolutly enough - in two ways:
one way - with the bookmarks context menu option
second way - automatically, just when you add page to bookmarks (as on/off option in extension setup)

that second way is strongly needed because when you add some bookmark mostly you have to cut the oryginal title which is largely to long (because of SEO keywords) - this is really annoying - and last but not least - AFAIK none of the extensions has such a feature

i just realized that naming new bookmark could even easier when you make it with not the clipboard content but actually selected text

First of all: thank you for this extension!

I've just discovered an unhandled exception (actually you're handling it with an alert :)) when I'm right-clicking on a bookmark <strong>after</strong> the <em>bookmarks-view</em> tree (from the sidebar) is filtered by a <em>Search</em>.

Hi Xeal, thanks for pointing this out. I'd also noticed this problem shortly after releasing 0.0.2 and have a fix for it. I am wrapping up version 0.0.3. :)

now it's very useful but I've just observed that it breaks the order of opening tabs - set up in TabMix - when you open next tab it's opened not as it was set (next to current tab) but at the end of all tabs..

Just released 0.0.4. It should fix any incompatibilities with the Fetch Text URL extension. Hopefully any other incompatibilities are also fixed. cyberrus, can you try this version and see if the order is still broken in TabMix? Thanks!
