    (Side note: You can't click outside the tag suggestion dropdown in these forums to make it go away!)

    Hi. This used to be available, but isn't any longer. One of your interface engineers deserves a trophy for successfully hiding it away in some undiscoverable corner of the diigo.com interface. Or perhaps you guys just removed it altogether.

    How do we add a bookmark from diigo.com itself? Meaning to say, not with the bookmarklet, and not with the toolbar.

    Only reason I ask is, about 1% of the time the bookmarklet refuses to show up.

Diigolet tag dropdown -- please make it optional - 125 views

  • Pistos Christou
     
    Hi. I've mentioned this in the past, but I'd like to bring it up again, because it is still just as annoying. The Diigolet in Opera has a dropdown that automatically appears as you type in tags. Could we get a user option to disable this? It is FAR TOO SLOW. On this 1.7 GHz machine, once I'm done typing all my tags, it takes upwards of 60 to 120 seconds for the dropdown to finish thrashing my CPU, and only then can I properly submit my bookmark.

    Not to mention the fact that it sometimes persists, leaving a visual artifact even after I submit the bookmark and the diigolet popup closes, and even after I click to hide the bookmarklet bar.

    I never use this feature, so it is more than a little annoying for me to deal with. I beg of you, let us turn it off. :(

    Thank you for your attention to the issue, joel. It is appreciated.

    I don't use Diigo at all under IE, and in Firefox, I use the extension. So it would only be an issue for me under Opera. I don't suspect you would be able to easily reproduce it, because the particular machine in question has lower hardware specs, and is known to really crawl under even moderate loads.

    I hope it's as easy as commenting out a function call or two, and then having an alternate version of the bookmarklet available for use. Hopefully this is not seen as a border case of only a few users that doesn't deserve attention. :(

    If the bookmarklet were static code, I'd just change it myself, but my understanding is that it runs remotely and/or updates itself as new versions are published.

    Well, I am happy to report that it seems to be working well. :) Praise be to God! The speed on this slow machine is acceptable, and I don't have that long wait or delay or anything. I can even actually click outside to make the dropdown disappear and not leave an artifact.

    Good work, and thank you for your prompt attention and significant effort regarding this issue.

    Mine starts collapsed too, but I believe it is still vomitting all the HTML data up through the HTTP socket on the initial page hit, and merely keeping it hidden until you uncollapse it.

    According to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

    Download Speed: 5872 kbps (734 KB/sec transfer rate)

    I don't think the speed of my net connection is an issue. The bottom line is it is trying to do a lot of work, and I would prefer to be able to have some options to make it not do all that work at once, but rather do chunks of work as I press buttons (e.g. uncollapse, open +/- togglers, etc.)

    As I've said, I tested on both Opera (9.5) and Firefox (2.0).

QuickD: Ctrl-Q - 92 views

  • Pistos Christou
     
    Recently, the Diigo toolbar seems to have claimed Ctrl-Q for its own use to QuickD bookmark the current site. I use Ctrl-Q to quit Firefox, so this is a bit of an intrusion. I don't see any way to change or disable this part of the Diigo toolbar, nor do I see a way for Firefox to map keys.

    How can I reclaim my Ctrl-Q keychord?

    TIA;

    Wonderful. I appreciate the relatively quick implementation of this. Thanks!

    Okay, I just noticed that although Ctrl-Q no longer QuickD's (since I unchecked it in my settings), Ctrl-Q is not remapped back to Quit Firefox. Now, pressing Ctrl-Q seems to do nothing. :( How can I get my Quit keychord working again?

    Hrm. Well, there must have been some sort of mysterious alteration to my installation of Fx. I'm using Fx 2 under Gentoo Linux, in KDE. I'm pretty sure I wasn't imagining things; I used Ctrl-Q to quit in the past, and you could even see it described in the File Menu to the right of the Quit menu item, just like other shortcuts in the menu.

    But I do see how Ctrl-Q (or any quit shortcut) is not described on that mozilla.org page; ergo I guess I have to just give up and consider myself a unique case. :(

    I guess it's Alt-F | Alt-Q for me. :(

    Thanks for your prompt attention, anyway.

    FWIW, here are a couple of web searches re: Ctrl-Q in Firefox:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=firefox+ctrl-q+quit
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ctrl-q+site%3Amozillazine.org

    It appears that Ctrl-Q used to quit, but then they took it out. :( Ah well.
