    Some pages still do not seem to be indexed

    Benedikt · 5 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Right now, I looked for some words of this page:

    Wikipedia, "Brutus of Troy".

    Visited the page yesterday.

    After not finding the content with memex, I visited again today. Refreshed it several times. Even moved it to another open session.

    No sucess. Content not foundt by memex.

    Not good. I intended to rely on this service.

    Memex not working on Ubuntu 16.04, Firefox 61.0.2 (64-bit)

    Jan · 6 · Last reply by jan bol


    I installed Memex a long time ago, I thought this issue would go away after some updates...

    I also removed and reinstalled Memex several times.

    But when I go to "Import History & Bookmarks" in settings it's always stating:

    "Analysing your browsing history & bookmarks for importing. This can take a few moments." How can I delete the whole database? Regards Jan

    Memex does not keep indexed pages after browser shutdown

    makefu · 2 · Last reply by makefu

    Hey, it seems that with memex on Firefox Quantum (61) on NixOS, the addon is unable to keep the indexed pages after the browser restarts.

    Importing however works as expected and i am able to search through the indexed pages  (both bookmarked and last seen) as long as the browser is not closed.

    My Firefox config:

    • Version 61.0.1
    • Build ID 20180802005710
    • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:61.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/61.0
    • OS: Linux 4.17.11
