Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Mozilla Firefox toolbar buttons and context menu entries are provided to quickly and easily import the current web page, a selected web snippet or even all tabs from Mozilla Firefox directly into Ultra Recall.

 

Toolbar buttons

Context menu (available from a right click)

firefoxcontext

 

Copy to Ultra Recall: Clicking this button or context menu entry will create a new Info Item in Ultra Recall, storing the entire web page* (or only the selected part of the web page if part or all (Ctrl+A) of it is selected first).

Link in Ultra Recall: Clicking this button or context menu entry will create a new Info Item for the current web page*, as a link to the actual url.

 

Note: Selecting part or all of the web page before importing may be needed when importing a secure page (for instance, an order receipt page) or a page behind a login so that the already-loaded page gets stored instead of attempting to retrieve the page again online.

 

* Holding down the Shift key when clicking either button will create a separate Info Item for each tab in this instance of Firefox, either linked or stored depending on which button is clicked.

 

Installation (use one of these two methods):

Check the "Install Firefox/Thunderbird/Postbox toolbar extensions" checkbox during installation of Ultra Recall (note: the method will also install to the default user profile).
Navigate to http://www.kinook.com/UltraRecall/extensions.html with Firefox and click the link to install the Firefox extension.

 

What if the toolbar buttons aren't displayed in Mozilla Firefox: When installed, the extension attempts to add two toolbar buttons on the default Navigation Toolbar.

1) In Firefox, ensure the Mail Toolbar is displayed (View | Toolbar, ensure Navigation Toolbar is checked)

2) Again in Firefox, use the following procedures to move the toolbar buttons from the toolbar palette to the desired toolbar

  a) Click View | Toolbars | Customize

  b) Drag the desired Ultra Recall toolbar buttons from the dialog to the desired toolbar

  c) Click Done

 

Compatibility:

Firefox 1.5+
Ultra Recall 3.1+
