Gotta completely disagree with everyone who says this is a 5-star app.
Plain and simple, the add-on changed the "primary" feed folder three times on me (different times I opened the browser).. Instead of putting everything in the default FEEDS folder, every time I opened it, it would add the primary feed to a random folder each time. And then I couldn't change the default feed folder at all.
It also blanked out a couple of folders, after which it listed the folders with no-names but I couldn't do a thing with them.
very nice addon! works perfectly
it is good, it does exactly as it says in the description. I have not run into any problems with it as of yet but I agree with what gumby32 said and when using a very large amount of feeds I find RSSOwl or google reader easier to navigate and sort with, hence 4 stars.
while i hope newsfox DOES NOT automatically marked the article as read unless i manually click the icon.
Just great. Simple, yet flexible. I have chosen Newsfox to replace my standalone newsreader.
The Group feature performs awkwardly. I could only drop-and-drag one feed at a time; I had to continually close and then re-open the Group Options window to move an additional feed. Users should be able to move multiple feeds at on time.
On top of that, the grouped feeds appear not only in the new Group, but they also remain in the parent menu as well. That seems like an exercise in redundancy.
For people with a small handful of feeds, this add-on can be very useful. However, for users with large numbers of feeds that need to be grouped, there are better choices for off-line readers (e.g., RSS Owl among others).
I love this reader, but an ongoing issue has led me to search for a replacement. The bug, an extra scroll bar in the reading pane in FF 3.6 on OS X 10.6, has been submitted to the developer but has not been resolved for some time. When it's resolved, I will give 5 stars.
it s incredible, work in my K-Meleon browser, i like newsfox, happy god
I was looking for an RSS reader to stand in for Sage, which is being worked up to FF3.6. NewsFox claims to be work with FF 1.0-3.7aPre. So, I d'loaded it. When I reloaded my browser, imagine my 'joy' to learn that NewsFox is not compatible with FF 3.6. What's up with that?
It's better to get new versions at html://newsfox.mozdev.org/installation.html#next to avoid AMO problems. There you can get version 1.0.5 or 1.0.6.
Great extension. Love it.
I was looking for an feed reader with the ability to only show articles from a feed that matches a specific filter. You can do that with NewsFox by creating a search group. Excellent!
One of my most used and preferred extensions for Firefox. The restore backup feature is a blessing. The RSS sorting and easy to navigate features keep this as my favorite for Firefox. Any chance you'll ever make this for Chrome as well?
Doesn't work with FF3.6RC1. Any ideas?
You can get a newer version at http://newsfox.mozdev.org/installation.html#next or at AMO in the sandbox(not sure how to see the sandbox at AMO). Or you can complain to the management at AMO as they've had the newer version since November 11, 2009, unless I don't understand how to submit a new version with their new system.
Newsfox is an essential for anyone who uses Firefox, reads any major news website, blogs, smaller torrent trackers, or content-managed websites.
If you use Firefox and subscribe to RSS feeds through anything other than Newsfox you're just silly.
5/5, every time
It's a good RSS feed reader. I use it everyday
This is the rss reader that I've used since I first started using a reader. Every once in a while, I'll try another, but I always come back to NewsFox. The keyboard navigation is great (and customizable). You can set individual feeds to display as text or web page. I find it very intuitive and very useful.
It is set as my home page, and it is always open. Thanks to the developers!
remarkable addon, but crashes my firefox on fedora 12 version 3.5.5, nevertheless, i loved it the time it worked.
but please fix that bug
See https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=22044#c1 for a workaround.
but has one flaw..
it uses iframes to view a feed in html on the 3th screen.
on several feed when viewing, need to enter a pasword for commenting, after that, i goes nuts.
1.0.5 or 1.0.6 ???
It takes a while for editors to review addons at AMO. You can get 1.0.6 in the sandbox at AMO or at http://newsfox.mozdev.org/installation.html#next.
installation aborted with the notice "is not compatible with seamonkery 2.0"
Oh wait, I censored my real response. For people who need a little extra help, there is a SeaMonkey 2.0 version at http://newsfox.mozdev.org/installation.html#next.
I wish I could share feeds in it with other users or share feeds in GoogleReader, Facebook, etc.
I like this addin, but with my upgrade to Windows 7 and SeaMonkey 2.0, it no longer works. When can we expect a version that works with 2.0?
If you read the NewsFox feed, you'll know there already is one at http://newsfox.mozdev.org/installation.html#next.
This addon does *not* work offline. Saying it does is a lie.
You can only say the newsreader is truly offline if it is able to cache and display the feed in the exact manner in which it would be seen online, without being connected to the internet.
Trying to use this extension offline only displays text with huge gaps where the images are meant to be. Don't waste your time if you are seeking an offline reader.
Sorry, but you're the one lying.
Search for 'filtered web page' on newsfox.mozdev.org. If you weren't so snide, I wouldn't make you RTFM.
Very good RSS client. User-friendly.
I love this extension. Had painfully tried a lot of RSS clients, this works perfect for me. Easy to use and moderately customizable.
