FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal
Bump for Janet. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
please add this one on "firefox social" https://activations.cdn.mozilla.net/en-US... - orfe
Hero! - Antonio

Advanced Tweets seems to be only working intermittently as of today.

My Constant problem is that Friendfeed's own system constantly forgets my password and so every several days when the system logs me out I am forced to use "Password Reset".

The same thing happens when I put in my email address or use "W.Jones" or "WJones". - W.Jones

Is there a way to reactivate a Friendfeed account that a user has accidentally deleted? Recover all the posts and comments in that account?
Andrew C (✔)
welp, I can't seem to comment on anything right now: "The file you requested is no longer on FriendFeed's servers." But the post I'm trying to comment on does exist!
Weird. - Stephen Mack
Clearing the browser cache didn't fix it. Logging out and back in didn't. (I can, however, comment via Android, which is how I'm writing this.) - Andrew C (✔) from Android
OK. My problem appears to be with the friendfeedimagezoom Greasemonkey script I've been using. Disabling just that one fixes it. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, it does that to me, too. I use the script only when I need it, then turn it off and reload after to reset. - Spidra Webster
I'm pretty sure for me it never started causing persistent trouble until last Friday. - Andrew C (✔)

For some reason the Upload files button doesnt work for me.

FF Team, how come you can't find your Twitter friends on the service any longer? Is this due to Twitter changes? Are there plans to restore it? Thanks.
Screen shot 2010-10-14 at 12.37.45 PM.png
yes, this. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you put &source=twitterandroid at the end of the REST request, I bet they can punch through any of twitter's API changes. - Andy Bakun
did not the twitter API change some time ago ? - Peter Dawson
Yes and yes. - Benjamin Golub
thanks Louis this is a huge loss to the service you provide guys. Find your friends › Find Twitter friends Finding your Twitter friends We could not find your Twitter friends. - Thomas Power
This has been fixed. - Benjamin Golub
Something fixed on FriendFeed? Hmmm... - Cliff Gerrish
right on. thanks again, Ben! :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd be happy if I could get my Twitter to import again. Has not for... months. - Alix May
Yes Cliff, things do get fixed here. Not always as quickly as we'd like, but that's universal. - Bruce Lewis
Ben is awesome, of course. Thank you sir. - Louis Gray
Things get fixed but no new features will be added. - Akiva
something wrong with ff. - Tayfun Yaşar
Ben: keeper of the flame. - Laura Norvig
Thanks Louis this really does need fixing FF is the only place that aggregates twitter feeds well - Thomas Power
Fantastic Ben, Louis thank you so much. - Thomas Power
Bipolar owl: I'm sorry you feel that way. I actually did commit a change that fixes this and a few weeks ago another change that fixed adding Twitter accounts. Unfortunately both fixes are for public Twitter accounts only. It looks like you have a private account. Stay tuned! - Benjamin Golub
Thanks for the fixes and the great attitude Ben. I imagine there isn't a huge incentive to continue to patch things around here, but it's clearly a great product and people are still passionate about it. Rock on, dude. - John
This is broken again. - Fedge No

The second video I posted dose not show the sreen of video. Do you know why?

Has anyone had any success contacting Friendfeed support? Friendfeed constantly says that my password is wrong.
Nope, I have reset my password recently without issue. I haven't been able to get Twitter hooked back up in forever. - Daniel W. Crompton
I think the Twitter problem is because Twitter changed its API. Old FF-Twitter connections are grandfathered in to a certain extent, but new ones don't work. You can use Advanced Tweets to import your Twitter here. http://friendfeed.com/advance... - Spidra Webster
Anne Bouey
Signing in with FB and Twitter should be working now. :)
She says, knowingly... - Spidra Webster
Thanks. I keep getting signed out of Friendfeed and it says that my password isn't recognized, so I constantly have to keep resetting my password, which on the next Login, Friendfeed says is incorrect. - WJones
Thanks Anne, you are my savior. - samet
