Delicious Firefox Extension

September 29th, 2011 · No Comments

I rely heavily on the Delicious Firefox extension for daily use as a way to store/search bookmarks and it also provides me with my standard quick links at the top of the browser. Maybe one day I’ll go into how I use that and how it is setup.

In any event with the recent changes at Delicious the extension was somewhat busted in that it wasn’t updating any longer and/or only showing a subset of bookmarks. Which made using the bookmark search feature useless and also made my quick toolbar links worthless as well.

I am not going to get into the changes they made and the features they removed for no good reason.

Anyway, on their beta status blog they have instructions on how to get the extension working again. I really only had to perform 2 steps rather than the heavy handed steps they suggest:

  1. Delete only the Delicious cookies. One can do this by going to options -> Privacy -> show cookies -> and search for Delicious. Then just delete the Delicious cookies.
  2. Log into Delicious within Firefox.
  3. You should then see an automatic re-syncing of Delicious bookmarks. At least I did.
