Thanks to Brief. I use it since 2010, and never have a serious problem.

With syncing feature it will be perfect ;)

Falsche Anzeige, wann die Feeds zuletzt aktualisiert wurden. Immer wieder mal wird angezeigt "vor 1 Stunde", auch, wenn gerade aktualisiert wird oder es erst ein paar Minuten her ist seit der letzten Aktualisierung.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This used to be my favorite addon - when it used to work. On my PC (Brief 1.7.2/FF26) it is impossible to empty the recycle bin and on most streams no number of unread posts is displayed, although there are hundreds. Brief 2.0 doesn't do the trick either. I hope this issue can be resolved because Brief is really irreplaceable.

Brief RTL Problems Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Adam Kowalczyk
Thanks for your excellent addon.
I use Persian version of firefox on linux and my system locale is also Persian (RTL) language, I have some problem
1- In RTL translation of firefox Brief is LTR
2- Complex text (RTL and LTR) is disturbed in Breif
3- I gonna to do Persian translation of your addon, how can I do that
4- In 2.0a1 version title font height is greater than its box in Persian text
I try 1.7.2 and 2.0a1 versions

Works great. Only wish it had a (discrete) "sound notification" option as does the Gmail Notifier (restartless) 0.3.6" add-on.

Good and fast, just don't update to 2.0 at the moment! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I really liked this Add-on. But few weeks ago it got automatically updated to version 2.0 which was much slower when browsing through the feeds. Perhaps due to restyled main screen. Rolled back to 1.7.2 and happy again.

Crash complet Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Crash complet de brief : plus rien. Plus de flux, nada ! Impossible de récupérer tous les fils non lus... Très énervant ! Je passe à Bamboo. J'étais un utilisateur très satisfait pourtant. Mais là, aucune info nulle part, je n'avais pas de version béta, ni rien de très folklorique. Dommage.

Same here, mate. Everything has gone, thousands of feeds that I used for writing my dissertation. Just roll back to 1.7 version and rename "brief-backup" file back to "brief", something can be restored.

It seems like you were using the beta channel and just got updated to 2.0a1. You shouldn't use a development version if you want reliability.

The combination of Firefox 25.0 and current Brief version has resulted in me losing access to the thousands of unread posts from last week that I was going to browse through. This sort of unreliability makes the program a risky choice. I've stuck with Brief through the bad times, but I'm finally done with it.

I'm sorry this happened. What version of Brief were you using? Was it 2.0 alpha, by any chance?

Best RSS reader. Simple and easy to use!
I only wish that this extension will be available for Google Chrome too! :)

Could be good Rated 3 out of 5 stars

but I still can't edit the feed properties of existing feeds, even with 2 beta.

非常好的扩展。 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can open the tab on the front page?

Thank you

Once I figured out which bookmark file to put my feeds in the add-on started right up; it does everything it's supposed to, organizing my news feeds and making them available right at my fingertips. Thanks so much. :)

Probably the most useful newsfeed reader I've found so far, with one exception: it would be really helpful if there were a menu item to open all unread items in a feed (or even from all feeds), without the need to open them up one at a time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.1).

Можно сделать right click по кнопке "отметить все записи как прочитанные" идентичным crtl-click (отметить видимые)? Далеко тянуться к клавиатуре.

Disabling Modified news Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No option to disable "modified news" and i keep getting advertisements from a site because of this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.1). 

If I understand you correctly, you can do this by right-clicking a feed and checking "Don't mark changed items back as unread".

By the way, would this really make the extension so bad that it deserved 1/5? Seems harsh ;)
