I can't add bookmarks from Firefox, why?

Make sure you aren't using Firefox in privacy mode: FF, Options, Privacy tab, don't choose never remember history. If that doesn't help, make sure the Firefox About box says release update channel. Lastly, try disabling all add-ons.

How do I import Firefox bookmarks?

  1. In Firefox press Ctrl+Shift+B to display the bookmarks
  2. Click Import and Backup|Export Bookmarks to HTML to save the bookmark file
  3. Import the file created in the previous step by using the File menu in LinkStash (File|Import|Mozilla/Netscape) or to import to a specific folder use the folder right-click menu instead
Method two (more complex)
  1. In the Firefox browser location (address) bar type about:config
  2. In the filter box that appears, type ExportHTML
  3. You'll see an entry listed as browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML, change the value to "true" (you can double-click it)
  4. Exit Firefox and it will export bookmarks to an HTML file
  5. Import the file created in the previous step by using the File menu in LinkStash (File|Import|Mozilla/Netscape) or to import to a specific folder use the folder right-click menu instead
You'll have to do this each time you want to export/import. For more information please see this article.

Can I store my bookmarks in a file on the Internet?

Yes, using Dropbox.

What you'll get is 2 GB of file space for free, plus an extra 250 MB if you use the link above. Once it's installed, copy your bookmark file to the My Dropbox folder on your computer and in LinkStash click Open from the File|LinkStashFile menu.

Note: There is no support for multiple copies of LinkStash using (i.e. simultaneously reading and writing) the same bookmark file.

Where are the Linkstash Icons for IE7+?

They are probably there, but IE7 may be hiding them. First ensure you have checked the integration option in LS tools|options|browser. Then try any of these:

  • Click the chevron (arrows) on the end of the toolbar, that shows all hidden buttons, they may be there.
  • Or, right-click the IE7 toolbar, uncheck Lock Toolbars, then drag the toolbar grip left so the icons appear on the right, you can then relock it.
  • Or, right-click the IE7 toolbar, choose Customize, then Add/Remove Commands, and change the layout accordingly by adding the buttons from the available list (probably near the bottom.)

Can you tell me more about installing/uninstalling LinkStash 3?

If you already have LinkStash 2.x installed you can install LinkStash 3 over the top of it and you wont lose any settings. When you run LinkStash 3 it converts the bookmark file and makes a backup of the original. If you later decide you want to revert to LinkStash 2.x (and we can't think of one reason why you would) then you can simply re-install LinkStash 2.x over the top again (do not uninstall) and open the v2.x bookmark file that was previously backed-up, your settings won't be lost. If you uninstall you will lose settings and you'll be prompted to delete all LinkStash bookmark files, this leaves your system and registry clean.

Where do I enter my serial number?

Click the Help|Purchase/Register LinkStash menu item, and enter your details in the box that appears. If this menu item is not there, you may have entered it previously - the menu item is removed once entered. To verify this click Help|About to view the registration status.

I just bought LinkStash but it's telling me I have 30 days trial left, why?

This is because you haven't yet entered your serial number. Once you enter the serial number you will no longer see the message. Read this FAQ if you don't know where or how to enter the serial number.
