Xmarks 3.3 for Firefox released

We're pleased to announce the latest upgrade of Xmarks for Firefox is now available. This version is mostly bug fixes, but includes one cool new feature. Behold the new Restore tab in your Xmarks settings dialog:

Ever since we launched Restore last year, we've wished it was a little easier to find. For those of you who don't know about Restore, we archive a snapshot of your bookmarks each time you make a change, and we store that archive for at least 6 months on our servers. Now from the Restore tab you can browse, view, and restore your full bookmark set from these snapshots. You can also see your entire set of backups anytime or anywhere: just visit and choose "Explore and Restore Old Bookmarks" in the Tools menu.

Other significant changes in this release:

  • Fixed occasional duplication issue with cross-browser sync and merge

  • Allow login via email address

  • Better general compatibility with other Firefox add-ons

  • Fixed rare error where users could not log into some websites

If you've downloaded from our servers you should receive upgrade notices today or tomorrow; Mozilla Add-Ons should start sending upgrade notices in the next few days. If you don't want to wait, you can start now by going to our download page. Enjoy!

(Note to our Chrome fans: your wait is nearly over! Patience!)
