What the **** is that all about?

I have to be wrong, right? It has to be me. There is no way this was overlooked, right?

The extension gives the ability to rightclick anywhere and "create a task from this page" which is awesome! or so I thought, until i opened up the extension in the sidebar and clicked on the link in the notes field and it not only opened in the sidebar of all places, but prohibited me from opening it in a new tab, middle clicking it into a new tab... or anything else.

I mean, I actually have to open the mobile site in the sidebar if i want it to function. its ridiculous. How exactly do you folks use toodle do as a 'read later' tool? I have to be missing something right?

please tell me this is on my end.

Just a note:

While it seems that the firefox extension keeps opening up links in the notefield in the sidebar, I have found a little work-around.

The iGoogle gadget, which looks EXACTLY the same, doesnt behave this way, but opens the links in a tab instead of the sidebar. Here are directions.

(I took the source from the iGoogle gadget and converted it into a link.)

1. Right click on the bookmarks toolbar and create a new bookmark.
2. Give it a name (Mine is Toodledo | Sidebar)
3. Under "Location", enter this link:

4. Make sure you check the box that says "Load this bookmark in the sidebar.

Now I only have the extension installed for the sake of the "Toodledo this page" option in the right-click context menu. So if anyone knows a bookmarklet for that, please let me go so I can get rid of this extension until they fix it.

I love toodledo...but this is totally weird.

Today I noticed that when I ran firefox there was an update for toodledo. I got hopeful. and yes! the problem i was talking about earlier is fixed in this edition!!

So it looks as if it is fixed as of version 1.70. woohoo and THANKS!
