  • very reliable feed-reader. having using it for years now - before FF 57.

    figuring out how to backup my feeds. no reaction when I export my feeds.

    doesn't seems to start automatically when clicked ????

    it runs after awhile - depend on good-luck... :-(
    This may be the database initialization delay which is a known problem for Brief.
  • love it!
  • Works great, but how can I sync my feeds?
    Feed list sync is planned, but not implemented yet in the Quantum-compatible version.
  • Not working any more on FF 60.0.1 . You can't add new feeds to Brief.
    Brief no longer uses Live Bookmarks as WebExtensions don't have access to them. Some way to import them will be added in the near future. If you still have a Firefox 56 profile, I'd suggest exporting the feed list in Brief there and importing in the new profile.
  • excellent addon
  • Thanks for porting this to WebExtensions. Best RSS Readers, I've been using it for years now.
  • Long time user for this extension and i'm happy that its upgraded to support FF57 ! , one issue that it seem "clear all items" button in the option not working .
    Clear all items not working is a known issue on Windows. A fix is planned for one of the future updates.
  • lecteur permettant la prise en compte de nombreux sites avec une excellente ergonomie. Simple à mettre en oeuvre, facile à utiliser.
  • Hello.
    Maybe this is a bug, maybe i'm only too dumb for it. ^^

    If i delete feed messages how can i get it back? Delete the whole feed and re-add does not help. Uninstall/reinstall brief - does not help.
    The trash is empty.

    I hope you can help me (or fix this issue).


    Thanks for your answer. Can you please give me infos for the hard way? I also try a diff. (files), but not found where the changes are made.

    Its fixed. :) You only have to wait until new feeds are coming and he will load the old ones again. :)
    Normally it's in trash after deletion and can be restored from there, unless you've emptied trash too. If you have, there's no easy way to restore it.
  • Hello I like your add on very much but now I have a problem
    I need to transfer the opml file to another computer. each time I try Brief tells me that this is not possible because of (invalid file format. the xml file isn't well formed). Please help

    Thank you for your reply. Now I have another issue. when I check "oldest first" nothing happens. Is there a workaround to fix this.
    Should be fixed in 2.5.4
  • It's the perfect RSS-Feedreader for me - since years! And now, with FF57, it's perfect again! Thanks for this great Addon.
    edit Dec. 2018:
    And now, with FF 64, it's always the best Reader!
  • Great Add-On but has somebody else the problem that the new version (for FF57) doesn't show the last entry first? The checkbox in the options seem to do nothing - i always see the newest entry first... regards

    Update: Thanks a lot - that was my problem - i was using Brief for years and have forgotten that you have to change the view - thanks again - keep up the good work

    One more suggestion - add something like "Delete all unread messages" to "All entries" - in previous version the "Mark everything as read" option has put them to the recycle bin and you could delete them there - now i have to delete all the unnecessary feeds for every entry seperatly
    Are you sure your view is set to unread only? This option is inactive in the other modes.
  • Made my day when I saw brief was updated
  • I'm using Brief for years now and I can really recommend it.

    Big thanks to the developer for migrating this to WebExtensions and FF57+ !
  • Yay! Brief is back! Love this extension. Simple, straightforward, and works well. Had moved away from it due to it not being maintained, and used Bamboo. Had to shift to away from that because of FF57. Used FeedBro for a few days, hated it. Glad to see Brief show up in the supported FF57 extensions. Made my day!
  • I love Brief!
    An extremely good extention of rss reading.
    I do not really need a lot of so called various functions, but to alert me if things I\ve subscribed get updated is enough.
    Recommend Brief to you if you need a rss subscriber rather than a file manager.
  • Great! Very nice and easy-to-use. Replaces my former RSS reader with FF57. I only noticed that I can't export feeds into an OPML file... Nothing happens.
    Export to OPML works for me correctly, so if you could come to Github and report it there with the error messages from console that the attempt produces, you would be welcome.
  • Wonderful add-on.
    Ver. 2.5.0, it does work finely with FF Quantum on Windows 10,
    but it doesn't work correctly on Mac OS X 10.12.6. Any actions by mouse clicking do not work on my Mac.
    I could not find the cause of this phenomena...

    Thanks for the reply.
    I have refreshed the FF Quantum on Mac, after that it does work correctly!

    So I have tested something on another Mac.
    When I just upgraded from FF56 to 57, I faced the same trouble.
    But after the refreshment of FF57, the add-on works finely.

    I have checked my previous setting of FF.
    And I found it happens when I select the private browsing mode or unclick the checkbox for save cookies.
    The same situation occurs on Windows10 as well.
    Sorry, I don't have access to a Mac to test it. Would be nice if someone who can reproduce this problem came to Github and helped diagnose it.

    Update: yes, it's a known problem that Brief 2.5 requires permission to set cookies (which also controls database access required by Brief) and thus can't work in private mode or never-save-cookies mode. You may try adding Brief's address (moz-extension://something) to exceptions, but I haven't checked that mode yet.
  • Tellement simple, et tellement pratique en même temps. Merci pour la mise à jour pour FF 57!
