Try this: #IfWinActive [Chrome's window ID, I'll explain later] !f:: ;Alt-F MyClip := ClipboardAll Send !d Send ^c Run P:\ath\to\firefox.exe %Clipboard% Clipboard := MyClip MyClip = return #IfWinActive That's an Autohotkey script, which would mean you had to install autohotkey, but if you don't want to do that, I can convert it into a standalone .exe. ...

From SuperGenPass patched for Google Chrome : Unfortunately, in Google Chrome, SuperGenPass chokes on some pages. I do not blame Chrome for that: it’s for security reasons. I’ve patched the basic version of SuperGenPass so that it can now work on those pages. I am not sure that it fixes everything for everybody but I hope it makes your ...

Well, it took some time but I stumbled upon the solution: You have to export your Bookmarks, edit the HTML file and import it again. It sounds way more complicated than it is and it's a clean solution since Chrome puts all of your re-imported bookmarks are in a separate "Imported" folder which you can delete after the changes are applied. Step by step ...

Is it safe to use an untrusted bookmarklet on a web page containing sensitive data, for example internet banking page? No. In particular, can a bookmarklet send the data anywhere or execute some actions (like following links) on the page? Yes. A bookmarklet runs some JavaScript as if it were included on the page by the page author (with all the ...

You can try this trick: Find a normal link (without JavaScript) for the website with the correct favicon. Add that link to your bookmarks toolbar as a normal bookmark. Finally, change the properties of the bookmark you just added and change the location to be the actual JavaScript bookmarklet you want (you want the location from the bookmarklet that ...

Thanks for the opportunity to learn something! Here's what I came up with. Create a bookmark with the following in the Location field. javascript:function z() { var d = new Date(); ym = d.getFullYear() + '-' + (d.getMonth()+1) + '-'; return 'http://some.site/page?from='+ym+'01&to='+ym+d.getDate(); } window.open(z(),"_blank"); It looks like you wanted ...

Pelms' suggestion led me to find the possibly-related Favicon Picker 3, which works better on Mac OS X.

Initially, my solution was to assign a keyword to a bookmarklet and then use AutoHotkey to automate the following steps: pressing Ctrl+L to select the address bar, typing in the keyword, and pressing Enter. This works great with normal bookmarks, as you will be taken to a new page. However, with bookmarklets that work with the current page, this is clumsy ...

You may try to convert your bookmarklets to GreaseMonkey userscripts. They run in a privileged environment and are not subject to CSP. However of course intents of userscripts and bookmarklets are different - userscripts run automatically while bookmarklets on-demand. You may circumvent this e.g. by creating a <button> in the userscript, appending it ...

No, it is not safe. A bookmarklet can see everything on the page, read its cookies and its local storage, and interact with the server the page came from (and I even think other servers as well, as the cross-domain-sandboxing may not apply to bookmarklets).

There was a Firefox bug (656433) that removed the ability to run any JavaScript bookmarklet from the URL bar. You now have to find a workaround, or run it from the Web Console (Web Developer -> Web Console). Make sure to remove the "javascript:" prefix if you run it from the Web Console. You could also run it as a bookmark: create a new bookmark with the ...

You can drag Chrome tabs into Firefox tab bar and it will open up in FF. Not exactly what your looking for but it might work.

I had been using the Autohotkey solution until Chrome changed the way URLs are displayed in the latest dev version, omitting the http(s)://. Modified code to run in the latest dev, with a new keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Menu Key to avoid conflict with some other program's global shortcut: #IfWinActive ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_0 ^+AppsKey:: ...

Using the top rated solution, I had to modify the script as shown below to work on my machine (and I prefer Win+Z key combination) Thanks to everyone who built this solution, it works great! #IfWinActive ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_0 #z:: ControlGetText, URLbartxt, Chrome_AutocompleteEditView1 RegExMatch(URLbartxt,"^((ht|f)tps?|file)://\S+$",URL) if URL ...

The code below works for me. No need for regular expressions, changed to "Chrome_OminiboxView1", and not confirm if URLbartxt is a valid URL. Probably this is sufficient for most people. If this code stops working, check the adress bar with your Window Spy. #z:: IfWinActive ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_0 ControlGetText, URLbartxt, Chrome_OmniboxView1 ...

This may not be exactly answering your question, But, if you want to save the bookmark toolbar space (and not just hide and unhide it at times), you can reduce the bookmark toolbar content and move it completely besides the 'Help' button. This way you are done with just two 'bars' under the firefox title. The Menu bar and the Address bar... Does that work ...

You can perhaps use Custom Buttons. I don't know how it handles complicated scripts, but I'm using it successfully to do some trivial tasks, e.g. a button which opens Google in new tab (instead of current): gBrowser.selectedTab = gBrowser.addTab("http://www.google.com/"); a button which performs site: Google search over current URL: content.location = ...

"Run Javascript" action does not work for Google Chrome before some change made to QS and a new Chrome qsplugin. However, as long as Chrome does come with AppleScript support, you should be able to write an AppleScript action to do the same thing.

Maybe the SiteLauncher add-on to Firefox will help : SiteLauncher is an add-on for Firefox that gives you a super-quick way to to open your favorite websites using only your keyboard. One special hotkey brings up the 'Launcher', followed by a unique key to launch a site. It is claimed that it works correctly for bookmarklets, even if 'Open ...

Another very simple solution is to use the "I hate your favicon" chrome extension. It allows you to input a url for a website that you want to change its favicon, and a url of an image of what you want the favicon to be. The rest is handled for you. Link to their website here

I had the same problem, but at first didn't actually realize it. Recently I deleted my favicon file in Chrome (without making a back-up) and suddenly all my bookmark toolbar links were missing their icons, since I'm using javascript:window.open to open them in a new tab. Today I realized why I was happily having favicons on my bookmarklets for months: When ...
