Use the Firefox Toolbar to add URLs to the Link Manager, log in to social networks and quickly switch between the profiles and campaigns in your account.

Raven deprecated the Firefox Toolbar on August 30, 2012. 

Is the Firefox Toolbar going to be updated to match the Chrome Toolbar?

(Answer via blog post by Jon Henshaw)

No. Raven will only support the Chrome Toolbar going forward. There are a few reasons:

  • Chrome is the most popular and fastest growing browser in the world.
  • Chrome is the preferred browser of our customers. In fact, many of our customers say they only use Firefox because we haven’t released a Chrome toolbar yet.
  • Toolbars are complex beasts. It’s difficult to support one toolbar, much less two, for a platform like Raven that is adding new, deeply integrated features all the time.

We’re not deleting your access to the Firefox Toolbar. If you are using the Firefox Toolbar now, you may continue to use it. We simply won’t be updating it (i.e., it’s deprecated). We strongly encourage you to switch to the Chrome Toolbar to take advantage of its greater functionality.

 

Download the Firefox Toolbar

You can download the Firefox from within the Preferences > Chrome Toolbar page.

  1. Login using Firefox.
  2. Go to Preferences > Chrome Toolbar (the Firefox link is within the Chrome Toolbar page).

  3. Scroll to the Firefox section. Click on the Download and Install link next to your preferred versions and follow the instructions. 

 

About

You can quickly switch between Profiles and Websites to add Link Records, use the Persona Manager to log in to social media accounts and conduct research.

  • Switch and manage any profile or website in your account
  • Run the Quality, Design or Keyword Analyzer for the page you're viewing
  • Add any page to the Link Manager
  • Login to social networks using the Persona Manager
  • Jump to the Dashboard
     

Use the Firefox Toolbar

  1. Click the Login button in the toolbar and log in to the system.
  2. Profile drop-down: Click on the Profile drop-down menu to switch between Profiles.
  3. Website drop-down: Click on the Website drop-down menu to switch between Websites, which are the same as Raven campaigns.
  4. Dashboard button: Click on your account name to quickly go to the Dashboard of the Profile and Website you have selected in the toolbar.
  5. Add Link: Click on this button on any website page to which you would like a link. The Firefox Toolbar opens a new Link Record in a new window, which you can edit, save and close.
  6. Link contacts: When adding a link via the Firefox toolbar, you have the option to assign an existing contact, create a new contact or use the contact discovery tool to associate a contact with the link. If you choose to create a new contact, you must include an email address or the contact will not be added to your CRM contacts nor will it be associated with your link.
  7. Personas: Click on the name the persona and the social media account to which you would like to log in. The toolbar will take you to the social network's login page and auto-insert the username and password.
  8. Research: While you're on any website page, click the "Research" button and select the "Research Assistant," "Quality Analyzer," "Keyword Research" or "Design Analyzer" option. The toolbar will open the tool in a separate window and run your research choice for that website.
  9. Options: Click on this drop-down and select "Dofollow links" and/or "Nofollow links" to see these link types highlighted on the web page you're viewing.
