Unmark firefox extension

Unmark logo Unmark for Firefox

NOTE: This extension is no longer under active development and DOES NOT work with Firefox 48+ due to Electrolysis (e10s) muti-threaded execution engine.

The Unmark extension for firefox, adds a button to your firefox toolbar allowing you to quickly add a bookmark for the page you're viewing to your Unmark Reading-List.
The addon can be downloaded rom the AMO (addons.mozilla.org) website here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/unmark/

Note: if you'd prefer not to wait for the AMO update, the latest version can always be downloaded here. (Current version: 0.1.2 - March 27, 2014)

The lowdown

By default, the extension will connect to the official Unmark hosted service (https://unmark.it) (which hosts both free and premium accounts).
Unmark is made by the team over at Plain (http://plainmade.com/) they're pretty awesome - check out their other products.

You can configure the Unmark extension to connect to your own locally hosted Unmark server by editing the server connection URL in the options.

The main reason I decided to create this add-on was (besides the fact it doesn't otherwise exist), I do a lot of internet development and web-security work and the unmark "bookmarklet" runs as in-line javascript and therefore is restricted by the Content Security Policy (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSP11/) headers that a lot of the sites I regularly visit have now implemented (GitHub etc.). Firefox add-ons (being part of the chrome) don't suffer that restriction.
