- Rated 4 out of 5by Mirek, 4 years agoThanks for this extension!
Please, add marking read/visited articles/links and maybe some code optimization for better performance - and it will be perfect add-on :-)
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 14501193, 4 years agoWorks great! Gives me the same functionality that FireFox decided wasn't worth maintaining. Thanks Tim and Tom for the quick turn around deploying this for us old school FireFox users.
- Rated 4 out of 5by imqqmi, 4 years agoThanks for bringing back the live rss bookmarks! How ironic it's based on an extension for chrome to provide Firefox like live bookmarks!
A few suggestions to improve:
- Done! Show which article is read
- Show icon of feed instead of the folder icon
- Remove icon in the drop down menu, some icons are annoying when displayed multiple times in a vertical row.
Keep up the good work!
- Rated 3 out of 5by dthfckr, 4 years agogood to have someone swinging away at keeping live bookmarks alive in firefox. so far, it looks the part, but there's one big problem.
the bandwidth + cpu overload for large numbers of feeds is the main issue. set it lower than once every 20 or 30 minutes and you'll regret it. tried 1 minute as an experiment, firefox locked up and i had to kill it in task manager. definitely needs an option to limit the number of threads that update concurrently and/or an automatic limiter that caps it at 4 or 5 threads at a time.
feedbro has such an option, but for those who are looking for simple pre-v64 dropdown menu style feeds, reader add-ons just don't cut it.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 14498396, 4 years agoFirefox dropped rss-support... I very often use rss feeds from several sites to stay up-to-date, so I was very disappointed about this. Luckily I found an article where someone pointed to this plug-in. Problem solved. Happy me :)
Thanks to the developers.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 12955352, 4 years agoMost (severe) performance and stability issues of previous versions seem to be solved. It still seems to needlessly update all feeds after a restart (and possibly bad and too many feeds could still lead to issues, but I culled my feeds to a minimum so am unaware of such persisting issues).
Also the feeds flood the "recently bookmarked" list with entries that shouldn't be there (I only want to see **my bookmarks** there, not random news articles).
