This add-on provides the ability to add single or multiple links to the browser history, making them appear visited, without having to actually visit them. It also allows them to be removed from the history.
For this extension to work, Firefox's privacy settings must be set a minimum of 'Remember my browsing and download history', and the
layout.css.visited_links_enabledmust be set to true.
Toggle visited status'.
Mark Selected Links As' then '
Visited' or '
Mark Links As' then '
Visited' or '
Unvisited' (Note: this will not appear if you right click on a link or have text selected) Alternatively select the toolbar button and pick the desired option.
Always Mark Bookmarks as Visited: if set, bookmarked links will not be marked unvisited.
Override Colour of Visited Links: if selected, force the style of all visited links to the specified
Override Colour: The colour to use for overriding the default or site colour on visited links
Override Exceptions: A comma delimited list of hostnames to exclude from the override behaviour. If the syntax
hostname:colouris used, the specified CSS Colour will be used instead of the
Override Colour. If a domain name is used, all sites within the domain will be excluded. (e.g. example.com will cover www.example.com, forums.example.com, etc.)
Delay Interval: This is the delay between marking individual links, increase this to reduce CPU load, at the cost of time.
Skip history check: Linkvisitors default behaviour is to check the history for the link, and only change the link to visited/unvisted if required. selecting this option will cause linkvisitor to add or remove the link without checking. Note: checking the history is quicker than adding a url, so there is a trade off depending on how many links need to be added vs those that will already be there.
