Foxmarks Officially Supports Firefox 3.1 Beta

We're excited about the upcoming release of Firefox 3.1, and so are you: though Firefox 3.1 is currently in beta and isn't scheduled to launch until the end of Q1 2009,  many of you have already written us asking to make Foxmarks compatible with the new version. We are happy to say that we have verified that the current version of Foxmarks (v2.6.0) available on the Mozilla Add-ons website is compatible with Firefox 3.1 beta!

To make it official, we have updated the Mozilla website and wanted to let you know that we will now provide support for Foxmarks on Firefox 3.1 beta.

We also have a new version of Foxmarks that contains a handful of small bug fixes. We're holding off on pushing this to the Mozilla website so that we don't annoy everyone with such a minor update, but if you're interested, here's the link to download it:

New System Email Preferences

In the spirit of adhering to best of breed email policies, we've added a preference to your Foxmarks account that allows you to opt-out from receiving emails from us. You can also access this setting by
clicking on unsubscribe links that will be displayed in emails from Foxmarks.

We've also made a minor adjustment to our privacy policy to clarify when and for what purpose we can send you emails. This change includes an explicit statement that we will not sell your email address to 3rd parties. View our entire privacy policy, or view just the changes from the last version.

We've never been chatty over email (most people have only seen a single email from us) and we plan to keep our messages to you focused and relevant to having the best Foxmarks experience possible.
