Maybe fork this into separate addons? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Two versions for different users with different needs:
a) Bamboo Feed Reader for Desktop
b) Bamboo Feed Reader for Smart Devices

Rating is for desktop version 1.9 which is dearly beloved and just right in terms of design and useability.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Please - provide an option to defauly to the OLD version. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Sorry, am NOT happy with the NEW version at all!!!!!
As another reviewer said ; "Old version design was neat and convenient" BRING THE OLD VERSION BACK PLEASE!!!

Again, please provide an option to select NEW or OLD version.

Thanks for listening. :)

New version is disgusting Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Old version design was neat and convenient while the new one is suitable only for tablet users. It's very wide, the space is used very inefficiently for desktop users, the fonts are so large that my eyes just doesn't know where I should look for my feed.

Was good up to 1.9, now much weaker Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The strength of this reader compared to others was its efficient use of space, vital if you have a large number of feeds and want to see at a glance what's of interest. Unfortunately, the developer decided to change this for version 2.0, which uses larger fonts, gaps between items, and as a result seems to show only around half as many items per page. I reverted to 1.9, and would recommend anyone else doing the same if content is more important to you than white space.

The aim is to improve readability. A new version will be released with several display density options.

V2 is a breath of fresh air Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best Firefox feed gets anew look, but all features are still there. Great job!
The new keyboard shortcuts will require a habituation period, but it's for a good cause.

Re-installed 1.9 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

OK, I found the old version 1.9 and re-installed it. Phew!

Now, one question for the more experienced among you: How can I enable automatic updates for FF add-ons BUT exclude one single add-on? Is that even possible? For now, I have to go with setting all add-ons on manual update, which is far from ideal.
Thanks for any input, highly appreciated!

And Julien, sorry again, but I really absolutely don't like the new look and I think it's far more complicated and confusing than the old one.
Other than that, you did a great job on Bamboo, thanks again!

You could deactivate automatic updates from the Firefox add-ons tab. Open the add-on description by double clicking it on the add-on list.

Bamboo Feed Reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used Sharp Reader for years, until I tried something new. Let me tell you your add on is outstanding. It's like driving a Ford then getting into a Porsche. After one day I was as familiar with it as could be. Thank You again.

Memory leaks Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Bamboo does exactly what I want it to, but the memory leaks severely limit its usability to the point of needing to restart Firefox way too often. Unfortunate

Re: Yes i know Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I know this is in Firefox but I wonder why it is not available in a single addon for Thunderbird (checked dozens of them). Anyway thank you - the addon itself works well

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on, but maybe you should add backward compatibility with live bookmarks for firefox sync or you should add your own sync server/integration with exist server. First would be perfect. Anyway, i love it.

Bamboo feed reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When Google reader warned of going out I had to look for another reader. Feedly seemed to be getting all the press, so I tried it. I was happy with it for awhile then they changed it. the left columns only showed with a mouse over then disappeared when the mouse moved away. This and other changes made it very annoying,so I tried Bamboo.

Bamboo works flawlessly. The thing that stands out most is that it is an extremely clean interface.
I highly recommend Bamboo!

The best replacement for Google Reader and Google Reader Watcher that I have found.

Great interface, good reader Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like this reader, it has most of the features a "normal" user would be looking for.

Some "quick wins" that would be nice:
- Show the year in the article timestamp
- Adjustable time for article retention
- When clicking on a feed title in an aggregated list, expand the containing folder when drilling down to that feed

Some "power" features that would be nice would be:
- Saved searches/filters
- Make all settings customizable for individual feeds
- A "reading pane" so you can see the article list and article content at the same time

Thank you for this great reader, for now I think it is the best Firefox-based reader available, with "Brief" being a close 2nd.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

so i was enjoying this addon until a blackout in my house happened some 15 minutes ago. when i restarted, all feeds were gone, so i guess i'll start saving again the 50+ feeds i had there... on a more reliable reader that is.
