Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best RSS Reader I've found so far. :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.4). 

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really enjoy the reader's ability to handle password protected feeds. Makes it easy to transfer information to various sites via our own secure RSS. I'd request you add the ability to print articles directly from NewsFox without having to browse to the feed source, log in again, and print from there.

Thanks!

printing

In Firefox3 you can select print this frame from the context menu within the view-pane and it will work. If you are printing a web page, it will print without remote CSS files(as if you'd chosen save html only and printed the result). In NewsFox1.0, you can do the same with ctrl-alt-uparrow.

bgSaverPref error! Not yet rated

'TypeError:bgSaverPref has no properties' error on startup/restart of Firefox is related to NewsFox, because, when the plugin is removed the error then goes away.

So, when you see someone say the error isn't as a result of this extention being installed ... they don't know what they are talking about. It is!

Need more information

I\'ll admit to not knowing what I\'m talking about. It sounds like you and gids(in discussions) both have subscribed to the same feed and that NewsFox and the feed have trouble interacting. Without knowing which feed it is, there is no way to tell what the problem is caused by. If you know which feed and post it to the discussions, or to bugzilla (http://bugzilla.mozdev.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=newsfox) , we can try and find what causes the problem. If you don\'t know the feed, you could post an OPML file at bugzilla. So the problem might be caused by NewsFox, or might be caused by a bad feed. \r\n

Nice reader... Offline browsing broken Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice add-on. Manages feeds well and is clean/neat. I am, however, having difficulty making the offline content feature work properly. The news feeds do not appear to be cached locally and cannot be read when I am not connected to the internet. This is unfortunate, as it is my primary reason for using the add-on. I have searched through the config settings for NewsFox and cannot locate any setting related to offline use.. Help would be much appreciated, otherwise will have to find a different add-on.

Offline: feed content only

You can read the content that is in the feed offline, but not html content elsewhere. The content in the feed has \'display style\'=text. Many \'feeds\' don\'t have much content in the feed itself.

Back To The Best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanx for returning the View In Pane. Now NewsFox is back to being the best reader out there. And nice touch with the Save feeds. I never thought much about that but it should come in very handy. Just PLEASE do not remove the View In Pane feature in future releases.

You broke deleting articles! Not yet rated

Guys, for the love of all that is good, PLEASE reinstate the "delete means delete" functionality as it was in previous releases, or at least give the user the option to delete an article with the delete key, rather than just striking it out. I cannot express strongly enough the white-hot intensity with which I detest the new behavior. Hate is far too mild a word. Contempt doesn't even come close. I'd rather have bamboo shot under my fingernails while being tasered and pepper sprayed than have to keep switching folders (then switching back) to get rid of the articles I've deleted. This [mis]feature is a total deal killer for me. I thought my quest for a good feed reader was over, but now it looks like my search starts again from scratch. Blecchh...

Progress Isn't Always Better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Fist, let me say that NewsFox is the best RSS reader out there, and I have been living on NewsFox since it first came out, but the change to opening a new window/tab when clicking on the feed\'s url from showing it in the subpane is totally impossible to work with. I\'ve already read the \'inventor\'s\' comment that he doesn\'t think anyone should want to read a feed that way. Wrong. I\'ll never give up NewFox, but I\'m sticking with 0.8 until the NewsFox creators give the users the option to view the content insider or outside of the subpane.

got pb with the last 0.8.8 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

everything was okay since the last update this morning !
after rebooting firefox, NewsFox crashes with this :
"loadIndices(): TypeError: xml.getElementsByTagName ("fdgpidx")[0].childNodes[0] has no properties "

I'm glad you understand the pb, cause I don't :-)
Hope you can fix it ASAP !

News Fox is Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an incredible RSS reader. Its simple, its not intrusive, it does not take over your environment and it works.

The nice things about this viewer:
(a) Automatic refresh is configurable,
(b) I can force it to check the feed,
(c) it pops up a small window in the bottom right hand corner indicating that there are new articles,
(d) it consolidates all new articles into a single list,
(e) it allows you to organise and group your feeds,
(f) it has a typical news reader view/pane layout.


My future recommendations are for it to
(1) allow individual refresh periods per feed,
(2) allow a select all (ctrl-a) within the article list,
(3) allow some sort of button somewhere where I can easily open the feed viewer,
(4) store its feed configuration in a normal bookmarks folder so that I can have it automatically synchonise and distribute via Foxmarks.


I typically use Opera for RSS feeds and Firefox for everything else. I am now able to switch completely to Firefox.

Thank you News Fox.

Recommendations

(1) and (2, context menu) are in version 0.8.3, beta available at http://newsfox.mozdev.org/installation.html later today.
(4) won't happen. You can put your newsfox folder on a flash drive, or perhaps synchronize with one of the online storage sites(haven't tried any and not going to plug any in particular, do a search).
(3) not sure I understand, and my responses are yours in this forum are up, so send me a PM.

Awesome Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Opens in a separate tab, making the font large enough and comfortable to read and very user-friendly.

Perfect! Just needs... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I finally found exactly what I wanted on a RSS News reader.
And best of all: Don't need to pay for it, or to open another software for it... it's already integrated with my browser, which just makes it better!

Only thing bothering me now, and this is probably something that won't be hard to fix, is the problem with the feed list always going to the top while I'm reading older news, or when I delete something.

Is it possible? It's not a major problem, but it's really annoying when you have like 100+ news to check... I read one, delete, then the list goes to the top. Then I have to look all over again where I was reading, delete, list goes to top, look for the position again... you get the point. :D
