Major Behavioral and UI Differences from Fx2

Open Questions

menu vs toolbar

  • what's the use-case for saving a bookmark in the menu vs the toolbar. might be different views on the same data? what's the use-case for having something visible in UI vs not visible? quick-click access, for mouse-oriented users?
  • should the toolbar and menu be the same folder?

what are starred items, and where to put them?

  • maybe they're unfiled bookmarks
  • "all bookmarks" in the organizer shows starred bookmarks, and subfolders
    • ew, you have your starred mixed w/ your folders. how to show "just starred"? is that desirable? it is in gmail and greader.
  • alex: starred items go in the bookmarks root, unfiled
  • unfiled shouldn't show up in the menu though. if the main reason for breaking the menu out of the root is so that it doesn't show unfiled (ie: starred) bookmarks, then maybe an "all starred" subfolder would be a better solution
  • problem: if you star something, and then later file, it won't show up under "starred" anywhere.

what does unstarring do?

  • nonstar sometimes is a history entry (eg: urlbar dropdown)
  • unstarring in the organizer could bring up a delete prompt

where should canned searches (smart folders) be exposed?

  • add the canned searches to toolbar, menu, and root? mockups show them in the toolbar and in the organizer finder pane.
