    I could believe the meme was a joke if it was posted in isolation, but with the rest of the post as context I really don't think so. There is clearly an attitude at play here and it matches what I've seen elsewhere on the forum as well as what I've heard on Reddit. If it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck then it's a duck.

    Now he's just messaged me with: What I want, Dean, is to be able to post to the "feature suggestions" area of your "user forum" (which I believe is for customers to request new features?) without getting snotty responses from an arrogant, haughty, condescending moderator who seems to think it's his job to piss people off. Since this seems to be beyond you, I kindly ask that you butt out and let one of your more mature colleagues take over. How on earth someone with your personality characterists is allowed to represent a company is anyone's guess because you're causing it nothing but harm - and so publicly too as a forum moderator! Just amazing! Please don't message me again. If I could block you then I would.

    Umm, what? You write about the SQL database immediately after I just told you that this database is not required? And then you claim that toggling a boolean in about:config is beyond your users' abilities? So your users are expected to be able to use advanced default results, set up custom web searches and create new workflows, but toggling a boolean in about:config is too complicated? Are you for real? What nonsense! Andrew said he didn't want to tackle this feature before I suggested using the exported HTML document which would make it a whole lot easier than using the database. As such, I don't think it's too much to expect that changing circumstances might change his mind - unless of course you guys are flatly determined not to implement the feature regardless of any circumstances because you just hate Firefox? Is that what you're saying? And I find it incredible that you would post condescending memes in a response to one of your customers' requests. Are you honestly that much of a dick? You even said yourself that, "this feature has been requested several times before", so why on earth would you try to make out via meme that I'm the only one asking for it? I've heard of mods on here having an attitude problem before. And now I see it with my own eyes. @Vero could you please take a look at this?

    > If it's as straightforward as you claim, then why don't you write a workflow that does work? Because I bought and paid for software that not only does it for 2 other browsers - one of which is less popular than the browser in question - and which takes feature requests from its customers. As the saying goes, "You don't get a dog and then bark yourself". Also, I'm far from the only customer you have who wants this feature. > I'm sure other Firefox users would be very grateful. I'm sure they would indeed. But they didn't buy my software to help support me with its future development - they bought yours.

    > Especially when there are a number of workflows which can satisfy this feature. None of those workflows work properly which is why people keep requesting the feature be added to core. This is so obvious that I'm pretty sure you must already know it. All you need to do is parse bookmarks.html. Firefox bookmarks have been moved in later versions to SQL you say? Then simply require that users enable the browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML option in about:config and the browser will generate and maintain that file for you. Given that bookmarks.html has existed since the dawn of the browser's existence, these "complete overhauls" that you mention are irrelevant. Parse that file and you have Firefox support, no strings attached. Easy. As your own moderator says, "This feature has been requested several times before". Given that it would be easy to add the feature by parsing bookmarks.html, please go ahead and add it. Thanks

    Firefox is about 2x as popular as Safari though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers#W3Counter_(May_2007_to_September_2018). It seems to me that usage is no longer a valid reason. And that "<5%" of Firefox users still paid the same price for their copy of Alfred as everyone else. Perhaps you should offer a discount for Firefox users seeing as they're forced to go without such useful functionality.
  7. Ah, no worries - I just found http://www.packal.org/workflow/chrome-bookmarks-0which seems to work just fine in Alfred 3. I'll switch to that for now and maybe stick with it if it turns out to be better - or at least as good.
  8. Hi guys I just installed Alfred 3 and noticed that the mdreizin Chrome Bookmarks workflow I've been using happily for the last couple of years no longer seems to be working. It just returns "No bookmarks found" regardless of what I search for, even though the bookmarks themselves are all intact. I'm really busy at the moment so I was hoping this is an issue that has already been resolved by someone... is that the case? Thanks
