Pike's Mozilla Firefox Add-ons

Get Firefox!

Create Shortcut

Get Create Shortcut
Version 0.3.6

Implements the Netscape Navigator 4 Create Shortcut menu item in Firefox. To create a shortcut to the current page bring up the context menu (usually done by right-clicking) and choose Create Shortcut. Selecting the menu item displays a dialog box that allows the creation of a shortcut to the current page/link on your desktop.

Note: This add-on is currently for Microsoft Windows only, see the Deskcut add-on for a cross-platform alternative.

0.3

  • Added an option to control what happens when a new shortcut has the same name as an existing shortcut. By default the old shortcut will be overwritten, this behaviour can now be turned off in the add-on's options dialog causing the new shortcut to be automatically renamed instead.
  • Added a hidden pref that changes the folder where the shortcut is created, set the pref createshortcut.folder to the path of the folder you wish shortcuts to be created in (remember if you set the pref in about:config you should use single backslash path separators, e.g. c:\windows\favorites, however if you set it in prefs.js or user.js you must use double backslashes, e.g. c:\\windows\\favorites).
  • Added a Brazilian Portuguese (pt-BR) locale, contributed by Fernando Pereira Silveira.
  • Added a German (de-DE) locale, contributed by Patrick Ruh.

0.2.1

  • Fixed a problem with shortcuts being sent to the wrong location if the desktop folder had been moved, this add-on suffered from the problem described in Bug 228977.
  • Polish: Prevent the context menu entry from displaying in some situations (such as when text is selected or when the cursor is in an input box).
  • Polish: Append an ellipsis to the Create Shortcut menu entry when the shortcut prompt is enabled.

0.2

  • You can now choose to bypass the shortcut prompt and automatically use the default values instead.
  • You can now edit the prefix and suffix applied to the shortcut's name.

0.1

  • Initial Release.

I am using FF v3.6.19. Your shortcut add-on installed. Bookmark Backup is also installed and working fine. However, the Shortcut will not open on my Desktop upon clicking with my mouse.

What is causing my problem?
