In theory this is a great program but it crashes constantly and the backup/restore function DOES NOT WORK!! You can cut and paste all you want, as instructed, but absolutely nothing happens. Save your money on this one--the frustration factor isn't worth it.

Hi Cgcis,
Can you give me some more details here - what was making it crash?
Despite several thousand downloads I have never had one reported crash.
Can you let me know what OS version and what version of Safari you are running please.

Sure--I'm using 10.6.8, and Safari 5.1.2, but it's done it before with other iterations. Scenario: Buttonbar drops out of sight, leaving only a remnant in the space it formerly occupied. I can't get it to pop back up. I close, try adding a new bar, nothing works. Forced to uninstall to get it back, and when I attempt to restore, nothing happens. Zero. I cut and paste, hit the button, with no result. Very frustrating...

Hi Cgis,
I run 10.6.8 with Safari 5.1.2 with no problems - can I ask you a big favour - if you still have it installed can you send me a screenshot of what you get when this problem occurs?
You can email it to buttonbar@midwinter-dg.com
I'd like to be able to find a solution to this problem.
If you can help out I'll very gladly send you a registration code.

Many thanks,

Duncan.

Sure, Midwinter Duncan Grant, no problem!

By the way.... Sometimes, when I quit Safari and then open it again, the letters of the bookmarks are much too large. If I repeat this process, it looks mostly back to normal. (I have the Pro-Version) Maybe you know this problem and can fix it. Best regards

Hi Sonnendeck - if you could let me know your OS and version of Safari, and if possible a screenshot of the problem if it occurs again It would be most helpful. You can mail to buttonbar@midwinter-dg.com

ButtonBar is awesome! I love being able to customize my favorite/most-used links in my own private button bar, and the set-up is a breeze. Definitely one of my favorite Safari extensions now.

Oh, sure, absolutely! I also posted a review on my Wall in Facebook saying how much I enjoyed it. I do plan to get the Plus version -- well worth the $3.50...just haven't taken the time to do it yet because I've been so busy. :)
