Using the Forum with Firefox
« on: March 29, 2021, 10:04:34 am »
For some reason I can't place this forum on Firefox bookmarks! The blue bookmark favorite star shows, but the form is not shown in bookmarks! Other web pages do get added correctly

I hardly see that as a Pascal etc. problem, particularly since this forum software is widely used by other projects (I've currently got EevBlog and Arduino open, and there are /many/ more).

I'm running Firefox on Debian/x86_64 and have https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php?action=unreadreplies as an entry in a tab on the "Bookmarks Toolbar". Remember that it you're running something like NoScript that this sort of thing does need to be either temporarily or permanently whitelisted.

Worsk perfectly OK here (FF on Win10).
Ctrl+D, Enter. Et voilà, there it is.

Hi!

If you don't want to rely on FF:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. uses LCLIntf;
  2. ...
  3. OpenURL('https://www.lazarus.freepascal.org');
