About this Add-on
You can see at a glance how many new articles you haven’t read and navigate straight to them with one simple click.
Breaking news will also appear just beneath your toolbar so there’s no way you’ll miss the most important news.
nzherald.co.nz Live will tell you how many new articles you have yet to read and provide a count in your status bar. As you read articles the count will decrease. You can choose which sections you would like to be notified about in the Preferences dialog (Right click icon -> Preferences).
If you wish to reset the count you can do so by right clicking the icon and selecting 'Mark all as Read'.
nzherald.co.nz Live will also notify you of new breaking news no matter what site you are currently browsing. This can be turned off by unselecting "Breaking News" in the Preferences dialog (Right click icon -> Preferences).
You may also change the frequency that the add-on polls for new stories in the Preferences dialog (Right click icon -> Preferences).
