I don’t want to cover all of the new features.
I only cover one which I don’t use and I believe there are many people who don’t want to use either. I’m talking about the „save as local bookmark if thumbed up or if tagged“.
Maybe you noticed it already:
You stumble a site, you like it and you give your thumb up – Pew, and it is bookmarked.
You want to tag a site – Pew, and it is bookmarked.
I wish StumbleUpon wouldn’t set this feature to auto enabled, or at least they could ask us if we want to use this feature before enabling it. I’m not sure if they mentioned it somewhere and I’m a bit too lazy too Google for it.
Anyway, time to get rid of this feature:
- Open the StumbleUpon ToolBar Options
- Select the tab „Search & Tagging“
- Look for „Bookmark upon Rate or Tag“
- Uncheck the box next to „Save favorites to a Firefox bookmark folder“
- Click „ok“
And we are done. I don’t remember if I had to delete the auto-added bookmarks on my own, so just have a look if they have been removed. If not, I guess you know how to delete bookmarks.
What do you think about this feature?
Do you have it enabled or disabled?
P.S.: I’d appreciate it if someone can tell me if he or she had to delete the bookmarks after disabling the feature.
