i agree with others - i'm starting to like it less as time goes by Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it slows the FF UI even with only 2 threads set and kills it with anything much more over 2

development seems to have all but ceased

after years, there is STILL no option to hide the feed tool-bar and REMEMBER ITS STATE across sessions!

Newsfox is not available in the FF feed subscribe menu on newer version of FF - what's with that?

Works fine for me. Firefox has never shown it when you start up the first time, but it shows on restart.


Generally, extension developers pay MUCH more attention to bugs than to comments on AMO.

Great Addon. Works without problems.

This version seemed to cure my previous issues regarding this add-on. Even though it throws XML errors as the review before mine noted, these XML issues are actually being handled now. I believe these previously unhandled errors were randomly crashing my computer upon reading some feeds.

Прекрасно Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Получше, чем Brief относительно приближенности к возможностям фидера в Опере 11, особенно в плане массового удаления записей и скорости обновления лент, но:

1) в случае косячной ленты хорошо бы у кнопки паузы через 20-30 секунд увидеть, какая именно лента тормозит процесс или внедрить многопосточность и внутренние приоритеты по предыдущим данным о скорости обновления

2) надпапка "корзина" всё же не помешает, именно из-за здешней лёгкости удаления (и хорошо бы туда ещё кнопку "вернуть последнее удаление", но это желание так, вишенка на торте)

3) в кнопке справки надо поправить последнюю строчку покороче - "Домашняя страница NewsFox"; упомянутая там "лента" вводит в непонятки

4) в Brief есть опция "игнорировать эту ленту при подсчёте количества непрочитанных записей"; бывает полезно

5) было бы здорово, если бы обновления не требовали присутствия открытого окна NewsFox. Brief обновляется самостоятельно и это удобно (зато неудобно, что анимированное слайдерное оповещение пролезает поверх других памятежрущих приложений вне браузера и безбожно тормозится. не повторяйте эту ошибку)

6) хоткей на установку-снятие звёздочки бы. сильно не хватает для клавиатурно-дружественного управления приложением

В остальном лично для меня приложение практически идеально, великолепная работа (повторюсь, я разбалован почто-фидером в Опере 11). Желаю хорошего кода.

NewsFox won't take feeds that I added to Firefox, have to manually add them, too Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I subscribe to an Atom/RSS feed with Firefox it won't appear in NewsFox, also a restart of Firefox won't help.
I have to manually add it in there.

Great add-on, but I have a bug to report:

When I click on a specific feed group, a green progress bar appears next to the "history" icon and gets stuck at about 80%. Subsequently NewsFox does not list the articles within that group but tells me to wait until loading has finished.

I figured it must be due to some broken feed in that group, but shouldn't there be timeouts to prevent that behaviour?

Update: Following feeds have since started causing the behaviour I described:
http://thefloorisnowlava.net/rss.php
http://what-if.xkcd.com/feed.atom
http://www.loadingartist.com/feed/

Maybe there's been an update to the RSS code these websites use that NewsFox can't deal with?

indispensable mais a ameliorer Rated 5 out of 5 stars

je m'en sert tous les jours pour gerer mes news avec une 40 de news a suivre.
J'ai pas de reproche juste des suggestions d'ameliorations:

- Utilise bcp de ressources lors du rafraichissement des news, ce qui rend lent l'ordi
- Impossible de l'utiliser sur plusieurs ordis en meme temps, il n'y a pas de synchronisation.

A part ca rien a dire j'en suis tres content.

Uso News Fox desde que desaparecio Google Reader. Mantengo mis suscripciones sincronizadas entre mis diferentes computadores utilizando los Live Boormarks de Firefox, es perfecto y ademas funciona offline.

Абсолютно идеальный плуг! Говорю каг юзер Оперы(той самой, годной, а не того что хромоклон), всё так как и привык в M2.
Благодрю создателя сего плугина. Всё остально шлак в сравнении с NewsFox!

just want I wanted in an rss/atom feed reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

feeds can be opened from Newfox page as new firefox tabs in the background - which makes Newsfox very usable with bookmarking and bookmarking firefox extensions. I have had no problem quickly updating a large amount of feeds as summaries.
Newsfox handles OPML files for exporting and importing wich makes it easy to set up other instances or other feed readers (i.e. liferea, quietrss, seamonkey, etc.)
Its easy to add feeds, delete feeds and to organize feeds into groups.

Good Extension, but.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What Sadly missed, was able to send the feed received by email. Most feed readers today have this function.

My lovely wife (it is her who acrually uses the extension, but she is too shy to write here) have found the solution to feed refresh hanging problem:
Open NewsFox settings dialog, "Feeds/Articles" tab, set "Feed refresh" -> renewal (seconds) to 0.

By the way, the Russian translation is not correct here, the "threads" setting name is translated to Russian as "feeds".

Is NewsFox suddenly not working for anyone else? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox pushed an update this weekend, and I suppose that's what broke it. Now when I click to check all feeds, it seems to hang on the first one.

Great extension! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've recently migrated from Opera to Firefox (after dropping Presto engine and moving to Webkit by Opera Software) and I'm looking for add-ons to mimic Opera functionality with Fx. Newsfox is very good, feels almost Opera-like. :)

One question, though - does Newsfox refresh feeds when Firefox starts (which would be excellent) or do I have to start Newsfox to make it work? Somehow I'm unable to figure that out, no notifications come with browser start and I see feeds refreshing after I launch Newsfox manualy. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.9.0.2). 

You have to start Newsfox, for example, you may add it to the list of tabs to open upon launch (if I'm not mistaken).

I have one major issue with this add-on: it is not possible to copy urls from the item list.
I need to copy urls in bulk into another program.
This should be trivial to implement, and should have been years ago.
It does not even need to be in the context menu, a keyboard shortcut would be good enough.

EDIT: So there is already a workable solution to this problem but the option is buried in about:config.
Find newsfox.advanced.copyToClipboard and set the value as 2.
The article URL will now be copied to clipboard every time you open one.

NewsFox icon problems Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After updating Newsfox the other day, clicking the NF icon produced a message about the icon being deprecated; use new icon. So I substituted the new icon for the old, only to discover that the new icon is twice as wide as the old one and takes up twice as much space on the toolbar. WTF!?

Followup: I'm talking about the NewsFox icon in Firefox, not the buttons within NewsFox.

Update: OK. I figured out the problem. At the time I updated, "none" was already selected as the text option for buttons. As already described, updating resulted in a double-width NewsFox icon (the extra width apparently for displaying the number of unread items). I went in to options, changed the button text option to "unread", then changed it back again, and the double-width icon had changed to its normal size. Still, half the time the icon has a blue background, and half the time it doesn't.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.9.0.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Go to Options - General - NewsFox button text and select "none" and the width will disappear.

Most people wish to have either the #new or #unread displayed, so that is the default.

Update: The blue background means that NewsFox has found an RSS feed on the page. All the possible features of the button are at http://newsfox.mozdev.org/rss/2008.html#nf34.
