Is there any way to get an install file for Wizz Encrypted Bookmarks? I understand that the application has been phased out, but I’d like to re-install it if possible.
So I went digging…
After much searching, I found it!
It’s actually quite a nice little add-on, so I decided to dust it off and do a bit of work on it. The previous two incarnations have taught me a little bit about how people think… Or should that be don’t think?
Anyway, I made it a bit smarter. It will no longer try to decrypt bookmarks that are already decrypted (I hope). It will no longer try to encrypt bookmarks that are already encrypted (I hope), and, using a bit of MD5 magic, it won’t decrypt bookmarks if the encryption key is incorrect (I hope).
That’s what it looks like when bookmarks are decrypted
And that’s what it looks like when bookmarks are encrypted
Apart from the encryption stuff, the sidebar works in exactly the same way as the usual Firefox Bookmarks sidebar (Ctrl + B) works (I hope). The search functionality, unlike the search functionality in the usual Firefox Bookmarks sidebar, only searches the Encrypted Bookmarks folder. It is a bit slow, but it does a huge lot of work when encrypting and decrypting.
Please remember, Encrypted Bookmarks uses Blowfish encryption, and, as far as I know, Blowfish encryption has never been broken. So if you forget your encryption key, you’re up shit creek without a paddle!
