No thanks Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This thing has crashed Firefox three times this evening and each time I restart FF, It has lost all the feeds and they have to be reloaded from the OPML file I have. I don't have time for crap like this.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
The best! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Best of all of them - it's OpenSource and don't requires registration (in case of OS reinstallation you can import/export OPML file), has favicons and auto updates list + highly customizable and intuitive interface. In short - this is a true trasure for FF users.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
Amnesia Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Say a feed outputs no more than 10 items. I'm caught up and 8 new ones pop up. I don't read them right away. 6 more get posted. Bamboo shows 10 unread because it doesn't remember beyond what it sees, quite unlike any other add-on in this category.
Please add a configurable number of articles to store. Preferably a global value, as well as possible per-feed overrides.
No backup of Bamboo data in Time Machine Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The default location for the Bamboo data is in ~/Library/Cache. This directory is not backed up by Time Machine. Hence after the file was lost, I have to resort to the backups I was making infrequently manually.. ;-(This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
e10s ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It seems it doesn't support e10s but since e10s is disabled on my profile, I couldn't say if it still properly works despite that.
I hope it will be compliant with future firefox release. I've been loving it since many years now without issue. Do you plan to update it?
Feeds disappear after crash Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This is by far my favorite feed reader, but lately, each time the browser crashes, the feeds are completely erased from Bamboo, and I have to import them again. That wouldn't be so bad, if Bamboo didn't have a bug that duplicates some feeds, and keeps obsolete feed even when you edit your OPML file. Worse, you have to delete each cloned feed one by one, because you cannot delete multiple feeds in Bamboo. Good feed reader, but I wish those problems were solved.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
Sorry for your loss of data but the application (Firefox or Thunderbird) crashes cannot be controlled.
You can save your data to a folder with backups from the "Files" option tab.
The reader does not duplicate any feed. If you need more information or to report a bug you can send me a message at bamboo.feedreader[at]gmail.com.

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have about 200 feeds. I`m quite satisfied.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
Best RSS reader, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
...but you need to fix one thing. Button to "mark all as readed" should also close the popup in corner of screen. It is very annoying. When you fix that I will change rate for 5 stars.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
Mostly good concepts & design, would be useful with sort Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Until it's possible to sort folders, and the feed titles within each, this is all quite useless.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).
Excellent plugin! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This was exactly what I was looking for. I love how I can choose to call the feeds something, rather than it showing up as "All Stories" or something, which is something that has frustrated me about other feed readers, whether the be in a browser or a desktop client.
The interface is also very well designed.
Nice overall Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry, too scared to reinstall Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I really hate to leave less than positive reviews.
I also really want a good in-firefox RSS reader.
But every single time I have installed Bamboo it has proven buggy, and when I have uninstalled it, it has corrupted my FF profile.
So I am now too scared to resinstall it, given the reviews below.
Sorry, but when you get solid reviews of stability, I will reconsider. I am always on the lookout for a good RSS reader, so will continue to check back.
But my experience over half a dozen versions of Bamboo, and the reviews below of continuing loss of feeds etc., precludes me from trying yet again.
I will of course revise this review in the future if need be. Your reader looks good, it just fails, and trashes my profile.
Please keep on working on it.
Volume icon/button Rated 4 out of 5 stars
would you please add the volume (for sound) icon/button when I am listening to my podcast? And add the duration (time) tooThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).

Just Fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Best of it's kind, so far!
Not only design and options are close to perfect, it also produces far less system load then any similar add-on.
@moonravensky779: That is, why I backing up on a regular basis is helpful. Just export. One can never be sure.
After FF update 44.02 lost all feeds!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I just lost about 1000 feeds that disappeared when Firefox automatically updated to 44.02 and I'm very upset as I had added some yesterday and did not backup not knowing this would happen. I had a backup but lost new feeds as this never happened until FFupdate - it happened again 2 days in a row should not have to keep backing up - going to Pale Moon instead. Giving 4 stars for the great app itself - sad i can't use any more without going to PM to avoid crashes every day with 44.02 FF. FF is so unstable now with key extensions like this one.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3).
Lots of data loss all over the place Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Bamboo often loses its data on what feed items have been read if e.g. Firefox crashes when it happens to be updating. And since updating feeds tends to stress memory, this is not as uncommon as one might wish. That in itself is not too bad, although it's sure annoying to have to mark thousands of feed items read... especially if some of them have been updated since you last checked. However, once in a while, Bamboo will get itself wedged more thoroughly, and have to revert to a "security backup", whatever that is. Today, though, even that didn't work, and absolutely nothing shows up. A program that can lose existing data to nothing more than ill-timed crashes is fundamentally coded wrong. There should be no way to overwrite the list of feeds like that.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3).
