Firefox Plugin

This plugin allows you to search your Firefox bookmarks and history directly from Quicksilver. It also provides a "Current Web Page (Firefox)" proxy object - allowing you to easily manipulate the current Firefox Web Page.

Catalog Entries

Under the Firefox entry, you will find the following two subentries:

Firefox Bookmarks includes all the URLs you bookmarked, without any folder structure or tags you might have applied.

Firefox History contains the last 200 URLs you visited (disabled by default).

Tip: if you want to increase or decrease the number of History items in Quicksilver, you can: 1. Go to ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/PlugIns/ 2. find com.blacktree.quicksilver.QSFirefoxPlugin.*.qsplugin 3. right-click -> "Show Package Contents" 4. then open Contents/Info.plist 5. In there, find the entry QSPresetAdditions -> Item 0 -> children -> Item 1 -> settings -> historySize 6. Change the number to something different. 7. Restart Quicksilver and rescan the catalog

Proxy Objects

Current Web Page (Firefox)

The Current Web Page (Firefox) proxy object contains the title and URL of the webpage currently open in Firefox.

Tip: Firefox updates the 'current webpage' information about every 15 seconds. If you encounter delays between getting the latest webpage information, you can shorten the delayby changing a hidden preference in Firefox:

  1. Type about:config in Firefox's address bar.
  2. Type sessionstore.interval in the filter-field.
  3. The browser.sessionstore.interval value is in milliseconds. Change it to something smaller, like 10000 or 5000
