    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.

    Highlighted text is hard to read

    mike_hales · 2 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Using the link-to-clipping function . . . that's fabulous thank you. But the highlighting is dark green, and almost obscures the text. A more transparent highlight colour, please? Even, a choice of colours?

    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


    • Bloody Vikings!
    • Firefox Multi-Account Containers
    • Forest: stay focused, be present
    • FoxyProxy Standard
    • Krebsgold
    • Reddit Enhancement Suite

    Memex consumes excessive amount of cpu

    adjm · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Memex 0.2.1, Chrome 66.0.3359.117, macOS 10.13.4

    Memex uses 100%-125% of CPU while browsing according to Chrome's Task Manager, and continues to use such high cpu even if all tabs are closed for a long time. Attached is console log of the extension. What else can I provide to help debug this issue?

    the link should actually at least output the data once shown below, like "Massively" the name of the first theme on the page:

    Import foundt only 1500 of my approx 6000 history entries (on Chrome)

    Benedikt · 4 · Last reply by Sun Kim

    Of those, approx 400 failed. But that does not seem to be the reason why I hardly can find any content.

    Any other mechanism I could try to get the content of the visited webpages into the knowledge base?

    Memex stopped working in Chrome

    scotthicks · 6 · Last reply by Kerwin

    I've been using Memex for several months and suddenly it stopped working. Whenever I search or try to index, I just get the "three bouncing balls / I'm thinking" animation.

    I use a lot of extensions but I have turned them all off, to no avail. I have turned Memex off and back on, restarted Chrome, etc. 

    FWIW, I'm using Chrome Version 66.0.3359.117 (Official Build) (64-bit) on a Windows 10 desktop.

    Unable to reproduce: Does not save "Do you want to share anonymous usage statistics, so we can improve the Memex for you and others?"

    David Pollard · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Unable to reproduce: Probably just user error (aka me being dumb).

    This is no longer a problem, but i don't see an option to close ticket. Feel free to close. Do you want to share anonymous usage statistics, so we can improve the Memex for you and others? option does not save choice, always defaults back to Yes.
