My Reviews


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, but I have a bug to report:

When I click on a specific feed group, a green progress bar appears next to the "history" icon and gets stuck at about 80%. Subsequently NewsFox does not list the articles within that group but tells me to wait until loading has finished.

I figured it must be due to some broken feed in that group, but shouldn't there be timeouts to prevent that behaviour?

Update: Following feeds have since started causing the behaviour I described:

Maybe there's been an update to the RSS code these websites use that NewsFox can't deal with?

There is an option in the settings whether to check the source of the object for whitelist entries.

Now there are two cases where this setting should apply:

1. The setting is enabled, the source website is not in the whitelist but the embedding website is. Expectation: The addon blocks the flash object. Reality: It does just that.

2. The setting is disabled (!), the source website is in the whitelist, the embedding website is not. Expectation: The addon blocks the flash object (because according to the phrasing of the setting it should ignore the fact that the source website is in the whitelist). Reality: The object is not blocked and loads immediately.

Logically this should not happen, and since I installed this addon to block third party embedded objects regardless whether the source site is blocked or not this is a deal breaker for me.

Apart from that I love the functionality of this addon. It would be great if you could implement another setting for how the addon behaves when the source site is whitelisted but the embedding site is blocked, because there seems to be currently no way to have the object blocked in that case.

Die Bewertung von "ist4000" ist faktisch inkorrekt und bezieht sich vermutlich auf das Add-On das in der "Bewertung" von "baerenwurm3000" mit wahrscheinlich erstunkener Denunziation beworben wird (bei diesem trifft die Aussage nämlich zu). Proxtube hat vor Youtubes Layout Update einwandfrei funktioniert und erfordert keinerlei Anmeldung irgend einer Art (Stand Version 1.4.3).
