... My review is that the extension doesn't work properly for YouTube anymore. It was good while it lasted but now it's over, at least for me. Thank you so much for everything, bye!
Developer responseposted a month agoEDIT: apart from not having the cookies consent cookie in place, YouTube can also temporarily IP ban you if you have too many feeds with too frequent scanning interval. That maybe a mistake on their end since it doesn't make sense to limit queries to XML feeds that are meant to be machine scannable.
Have you allowed youtube.com to set cookies? YouTube has changed something recently that blocks loading of the XML feed if you have NOT allowed youtube.com to set cookies. Once you allow cookies and reload the channel page in a normal tab, you'll get a cookie consent screen. After you accept cookies, feed loading works normally.
Anyway, it's not a Feedbro bug. Please use the Support button on the WebExtension front page for things like these. Reviews are not meant for support requests or bug reports.
- by Firefox user 15107490, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5It seems to skip articles now and then for no apparent reason. I noticed that behaviour when reading web comics, getting confused because of missing pages. The articles show up in the feed preview but that's it. I found no way to have it download an article once it has been skipped. The only fix is deleting the feed and adding it again ... until it skips one the next time.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoWithout the feed URL it's a bit hard to troubleshoot this but Feedbro 4.5.0 now properly handles XML feeds that are in "oldest first" order which might have caused this in certain situations.
Of course, it would be have been a lot quicker to track down with a feed URL to test with. So for everyone else as well: if you think there's a bug somewhere, please include a feed URL that we can test it with.
