    So it is possible to return in Brief with the back button on the mouse or keyboard, you do not have to close every article.
    Only Bamboo had this great feature, but it's not a webextension. That's why I have to use an old portable ERS ff version.

  • Not working anymore in version 2.5.8. on FF 60.0.2.

  • After the update to 2.5.8 Brief worked during one single day.
    I have deleted bookmarks from the folder but they still appear in Brief menu. No idea of where is Brief taking them from.
    Really a pity for such an excellent add-on. Any solution?

  • Excellent Addon, great work!!
    If you have problems (e.g. feeds not loading) you can fix by 'refresh firefox' !

  • I really like this extension but for a while now it's not working on my home computer, even if I uninstall and reinstall it. The sidebar opens when I click the Brief button in the toolbar but no feeds show up and clicking on anything (like options, refresh, etc.) does nothing. This is version 2.5.8. Works fine on my work computer, so not sure what the deal is.

  • new version does not update feeds in firefox

    Developer response

    Please report the problem with more details at the Brief's homepage.

  • BRIEF 2.5.8
    It does not update feeds anymore, not even manually.
    This has happened since yesterday, since firefox has updated to version 60.0.2


    Developer response

    Brief on Firefox 60 works for me. If you come to https://github.com/brief-rss/brief/issues, provide a link to the feed that's not updating and/or error messages, we may be able to find out what's the problem in your case.

  • Feed Update problem solved: In my case "CCleaner programme" which I run daily erases "permissions.sqlite" file. Once I add this file to the exclude list, everything works fine.

    Developer response

    Wow, a nice find! Glad you discovered the source of this problem. I hope CCleaner or others like it won't just delete the feed database one day.

  • After getting feeds working now Brief continues to reload the same feeds over and over even with the hide read feeds enabled. There's no recognition that any previous feed has already been downloaded and viewed ???? I end up with constant multiple instances of the same feed.

    Developer response

    Such a bug has been fixed for 2.5.8, please check.

  • Unfortunately the feeds have all disappeared yet in 2.5.7.
    I wait bug fix ;)

    Developer response

    I've heard such bug reports, investigating them. If you have any additional information, you're welcome to the support thread and/or github issues.

  • Версия 2.5.6 Выпущено Май 27, 2018 311.7 KiB - фуфло!
    Откатил на Версию 2.5.5 и все снова заработало.

    Developer response

    Попробуйте 2.5.7, там должно работать даже лучше :-)

  • 2.5.6 and 2.5.7 still can't find my feeds. Thankfully 2.5.5 still works. Will be worth 5 stars once fixed.

    Developer response

    Does 2.5.7 fix it for you?

  • Love Brief. Have used it for years, but after the latest update on 5/27/2018 it has stopped working. The feeds have all disappeared.

    Developer response

    Does 2.5.7 fix it for you?

  • После обновления все ленты пропали

    Developer response

    Должно быть исправлено в версии 2.5.7.

  • Почему то перестал обновлять новостипо таймеру. :( Вручную обновляет. Почему не обновляет?

    Developer response

    Не сталкивался с такой ошибкой. Возможно, сбилась настройка таймера и он обновляет их редко?

  • Mobil platform da kullanılabilmesini sevdim.

  • Хорошая попытка , но я уже привык, пока вы раскачивались, к Feedbro. Более всего огорчает открытие текущей новости в неактивной вкладке! Ну бесит же !!! Поддержка видео не работает... Тем не менее остаюсь горячим поклонником BRIEF, и желаю разработчикам успехов!!! ЖДУ..................................

  • Looks like the nicest RSS Reader in existance BUT: Not working in Firefox Developer Edition Version 60.0b4 46-bit

    Can't see any contents on the big right side area (it states "no items") and on the left hand menu there are items that I can open up (under the feed name), but they do not have any title/text. So I do recognize that there are items as I have the arrows I can click at that show that they contain content, but there's just no text there.

    I tried adding:

  • Wow, finally an rss addon that suits me!!! Almost the same as Sage and Sage++ !!!
    Here're some suggestions:
    Please, can you please put like Sage(++) did, on the left pane, divide that space in two and at half below put a list of all feed articles titles from the feed that we are reading?! It would be much better than we scroll all the articles in the right pane!!
    One more thing, can you please add firefox sync to the addon options and feeds?!
    Thkx in advance.

  • A bunch of my feeds aren't updating. The feeds themselves are working. I thought I would try to remove the addon and reinstall it, but it retains whatever messed up data that is causing the problem. Is it just me who's having this problem, or has nobody noticed? If it were just one or even two feeds I wouldn't have noticed for maybe weeks. But I have at least five out of 30 feeds that are broken. No apparent way to "reset" the addon.

  • Era una de las mejores extensiones que he usado, sin embargo desde la actualización de mozilla a quantum es imposible usar la barra de búsqueda de Brief para encontrar detalles en cualquier noticia, por favor mucho sabría agradecerles soluciones este problema para que siga siendo N° 1 en aplicaciones realmente útiles...

  • Very good extension
    but the fact of not being able to synchronize between these pc is penalizing
    I hope this feature will be implemented someday

  • 非常不错
    最起码用了4年了 更新也不慢

  • It is super easy to use, can change how often you want to refresh your feeds, and is very responsive & fast. Highly recommend if you want to have a browser based RSS reader.

  • Former SAGE Feeds user here (which no longer works with Firefox 57 and development has stopped). This add on enabled me to carry on using Firefox
