The new version... hmm... catalogue has gone, or has been hidden well. So instead of the ease with epub I now - well until I downgraded - have to browse around hoping to find what I am looking for. Why did that go?
Besides the new layout.. hmm... maybe fine if you read a book from one end to another, but not great for anything but that.
...and that is the interface.
Having read the instructions on the author's website I failed to open an EPUB document which I had in a folder. After reading some of the reviews and making several attempts I managed to read the book.
I would have liked to be able to reopen the book and carry on reading without having to set a bookmark.
It is evident that Firefox users are unhappy with the Add-on updates needed for the upcoming new requirements.
It would be helpful if there was a mozillaZine Forum for this Add-on so that users and the author could interact publicly.
The app works flawlessly. The only thing I wish it had it's a better user interface. This would hands down dethrone Readium if it gets the work needed on the interface, and maybe integration with dictionary and translator. I'll be the first to donate if you could make that happen.
Thanks for your review. Could you please send me some details what you mean by a better ui? You can contact me via epubread at gmail dot com.
The interface of the new version is counterintuitive - a single bar with a folder+arrow is inadequate. Other controls come up at the bottom but seemingly at random. The full menu should load at all times as in version 1.5.
The new version takes up the entire page, won't open all epubs (version 1.5 did), and displays an ugly address in the address bar.
I have trouble selecting text in the new version and I will be darned if I can get the table of contents back on the left side.
I feel badly for leaving this review, but I had to downgrade to 1.5 so I could read my books again.
If you are upset with the new version you can download the older version here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/epubreader/versions/
I downloaded version 1.5, and it is working great just like it used to!
It became impossible to select text at the edges, because the reader thinks that I want to flip through the pages. In the column mode, the height of the add-ons is not taken into account. There is no more table of content on the right of the book. Everything became simply awful.
Hate to say it, but this update really sucks. I lost my bookmarks, I can't click on a file & automatically load it, and I can't see the Table of Contents to the side. Very unfriendly.
Okay, like everyone else here I was pretty frustrated when this didn't work with the new update. But after a frenzy of clicking I was able to get it working.
Here's the trick:
1) To open an ebook you have to first look for the open book in your browser toolbar.
2) Click it JUST ONCE.
3) Now click the page - NOT in the middle of the image, but in the middle of the page. Click just once, if you do it twice the toolbars, which are located on the top and bottom of the page, will go away.
4) Click the button that stands for the table of contents. It looks like a tablet, or a page with writing on it.
5) Now click the first chapter.
If you're like me and would rather read it on your Kindle- you still can. Just click the floppy disc image, download, and use your favorite converter (I like online-convert.com).
As I need to google search a lot(c++ dev) I need firefox always open. Having a lightweight but fully feature epub reader on a "tab" is just awesome.
The best epub reader i have used until now!
Epub Reader is a handy add-on. I'd like to see two things added to it which would make it even better. One is to display page numbers and also to make it searchable with ctrl-f.
Up to now, I used some crappy standalone freeware program (coolreader) for epub files. This addon is so much better!
Very nice. As advertised.
kak dobavit' svoy OPDS server ?
How to add your OPDS server?
EPUB Reader creates temporary files that are stored in the User profile and have to be deleted manually here:
Dans la future version sur laquelle vous travaillez, y a-t-il moyen d'avoir une pagination comme sur les liseuses ? Quand on lit un essai et que l'on veut faire une citation, ce serait utile.
Merci et cordialement
I really like it because its very intuitive and it has side bar that you click to view contents and to collapse it, handy.
You can choose colors, fonts, size of a font etc.
Maybe i would change the sidebar clicking area a bit more bigger but not huge maybe sort of a round button or something.
simple. functional. beautiful.
it can open epub file. most importantly, it opens within firefox browser, which suits my eye as i have set my favourite fonts, background colour etc in the browser. very useful
please keep on updating
An excellent ePub reader. I use it on Linux and the Mac. It is better than the standalone ePub reader apps available on those platforms.
Отличное расширение для открытия электронных книг, формата EPUB.
Awesome for what it does. I like that you can tag books and manage a library right in Firefox. However, I really wish you could select your own font and background colors (other than the basic ones it gives you to choose from). Being able to add your own background image would also be really cool. (I edited the extension's css just for myself so I could do this, so I know it's possible and would be a pretty easy option to provide, and I'd be content with this except that it keeps getting reset back to the generic whenever I reopen firefox...)
Всё хорошо, но не хватает возможности добавлять ссылки на новые каталоги.
Please add a feature of changing background, cause it's hard to read with the white one.
