Hm, maybe makes sense to insert as a new button to the page switcher, though not sure where exactly it makes sense to put it, or what the icon could be. Any suggestions or thoughts?

I'd say in with the page nav buttons, and:

Does SALR have a way to jump to the next unread post, the way URL parameter "goto=newpost" does?. Keyboard shortcut, button or something else.

This is already a feature. Configure SALR -> " Last post button reloads the current thread to check for new posts instead of scrolling to an unread post"

The description admittedly could use some work.

Oh yeah, that does work. Maybe "U" as keyboard shortcut for the function. Description does need work. How about "Reload thread and jump to first unread post".

Whyyy is my reply window bigger than my browser window? I have to Ctrl minus minus minus and make everything tiny to get the full window. I like to browse at 120% zoom but I have to take it down to 90% to get the full window. This just started like a week ago and it's driving me bonkers, esp since I'm now a mod and have to post more (it started before I was made a mod so I don't think that's related). I don't think I downloaded any other extensions recently that would have interfered.

Please keep in mind that my computer skills only extend to "download firefox extension" and MAYBE "copy/paste code", thank you.

Window still big! Please help.

Do you have your system font set to large?
I do and have had this problem of windows being to big to fit on my screen going back many years.
Like the Baldurs Gate 3 launcher doesnt fit unless I switch my system font back to normal.
And other launchers from Larian because its just the same game reskinned.

"Last post button reloads the thread and goes to first unread post instead of scrolling to unread post on current thread page"? I'd like to keep the "instead of..." section just to give difference of behavior.

Adding a new keyboard shortcut to do this as well probably makes sense as well.

Where are things like User Notes saved locally?

And where are they Syncing to?

qsvui
Aug 23, 2003

On Firefox, they're under stored as JSON in the browser's local storage for the extension with the key "userNotesLocal". I think they get synced to your Firefox account, but a dev would know better.

Yeah, qsvui has it right. If you are using synced user notes, then they're saved to the account logged into your browser (either firefox or chrome) using the storage.sync API and will show up on any device that's using that same logged in browser profile.

Notes stored locally are stored in window.localStorage and only available to you on that device + browser, and will not show up if you go to another device.

The difference was added because there were some people back in 2014 that wanted to have user notes per device. The average user will probably want to leave the user notes synced, and also not worry about those buttons.

Is there a limited number of people you can add notes to? I can't seem to add any more.

edit: Going through the thread. Same problem as this, it seems.

Megillah Gorilla posted:

Doesn't work for me either.

I can type in a user note and even set a colour in the popup box. But when I hit okay and then refresh the page there's no change. When I open up the note box again, everything I typed in is gone.

But, older notes I've made are still around.


EDIT: I wonder if there's a maximum number of notes you can add? I have a horrible memory for people, so it's always been my habit to make notes both online and off. I may well have maxed it out.

Editedit: Oh yeah you have a solution here, Astral. Trying it.

astral posted:

synced extension storage can only have 8,192 bytes per item. There is no such limitation for non-synced extension storage.

While I'm bumping the thread, sometimes I can't add a note to someone, especially if the webpage has been open for more than 10 seconds. The "Ok" and "Delete" buttons just don't work at all. Is there a fix? Just refreshing as a workaround.

As a suggestion, it'd also be cool to have some color options available to click so I don't have to go search hex codes for anything other than red text red.

That sounds related to something pointed out earlier:

I made a bookmark folder with the most common colours I use that I never remember off the top of my head. But it would be nice to have a little colour-wheel setup.



And, speaking of colours, is there a way to order threads according to the colour you've set their bookmark? Like, all the blue star threads at the top, then all the ones with a red star, etc.

Astral changed how timg works on the forums proper and now the restrict img size thing in SALR is broken in some unexpected ways. I don't know of a fix.

If so, it's sort-of already been brought up over there, I see.

Intriguing...
Something that's been bugging me for a while with SALR is, when I load the User Control Panel, if I wait a little bit before clicking the "Open updated threads" button, the button just throws an error in the console and otherwise doesn't work. Don't know why it does that or how long I have to wait until it fails, but I attached what it spits out in the console.

It's not a huge deal, if I click the button and it doesn't work I just reload the page and it works. On github it says to report bugs here, should I still also report it on github? This is specifically in Firefox.

Edit: sorry the image is so huge!

It looks like browsers automatically disconnect open ports to extensions after 5 minutes or so. SALR probably has to listen for a disconnection and re-open the port.

See:
https://github.com/GoogleChrome/developer.chrome.com/issues/504
https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1146434

EDIT:

https://github.com/MasterOdin/salr-redux/blob/master/extension/js/background.js

Like, shouldn't there be a port.onDisconnect.addListener call that recreates the port?

This also happens to me almost every time i try to add or edit or delete a note. It seems to be related to having the page open longer than 5 - 10 seconds before I interact with the user note stuff. I dislike it. Is refreshing really the only solution?

I open the single post in a new tab using the "1" button under the user's av, then quickly edit the note. But yeah, I'm also wondering if there's a fix since it's been this way for quite a while now.
