Historically sweet add-on appeared to butcher my session this time :( Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Generally I've been using this extension for years and it's been great. I just installed it again and it appeared to butcher my session history (tabs). Not happy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.2.1-signed). 

Brilliant but broken in Aurora 2013-04 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

About a week back from Aurora 22.0a2 (2013-04-12) Sage 1.4.14 stopped loading feeds entries in the lower pane of the sidebar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.14.1-signed). 

Thanks for pointing this out, we're tracking the issue here:

Post child for why extensions cannot replace native functionality Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension is the 'poster child' for what is wrong with Mozilla relying on extensions for decent functionality.

The default Firefox RSS reading functionality (Live Bookmarks) is terrible.

Can someone dream up a case whereby Fennec's RSS reading must be improved? Otherwise since Mozilla has arguably put desktop develop on hold in the last 18 months, issues like the gross lack of a decent RSS reader in Firefox will not be addressed in the short term.

Of course the conspiracy theorist might suggest that Mozilla is happy for users to do RSS through Google Reader since Google bankrolls Mozilla. Hmmm

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.3). 

Good but poorly supported Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is quite a good extension BUT the developers are apparently very slow to update it for new versions of Firefox which is really very annoying.

The fork of the project Sage-Too is apparently no better as one developer has abandoned the project citing selfish Firefox users. Is it selfish to want what should be standard in the browser? By default Firefox is quite ancient in it's feed reading abilities, no matter how much their marketing team wants to pimp "Live Bookmarks", and therefore a decent extension is needed and must be maintained.

Users get excited about new versions of Firefox and that excitement is met with a thundering brick wall when extensions don't update in time. It's not as if Mozilla doesn't give extension developers plenty of notice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2).
