Firefox integration



Linkman offers a Firefox Addon to allow you a direct interaction with Linkman in the browser. The addon is installed automatically when you install Linkman.


It can also be installed manually. Make sure you are visiting this page ( with Firefox.


After installation, the Addon must be configured as shown in the image below.




In the search window Linkman uses wildcards and operators to combine search terms. AND (DEFAULT), OR, AND NOT and the '-' sign can be used. Example: a search for backup software -usb will find all links containing the keyword backup AND the keyword software, but NOT containing the keyword usb.


You can enable the Add-on bar to get Linkman icons in the right corner of the Firefox window.




Linkman functionality is also available in the right click menu.




Alternatively you can set hotkeys for many Linkman functions. These hotkeys will also work in your browser.


Firefox and Linkman communicate over TCP/IP port 80.


If you use this port for another application you can configure Firefox and Linkman to exchange data over a different port (Addons | Extensions | LinkmanFox | Options).


You know when you need to change the port from 80 to e.g. 81 if Linkman does not respond to the addon clicks (should not be needed on 99% of all computers).





The communication port must be also changed in Linkman (Tools | Settings | Browser).
