Used to be great. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I used to love this addon. It was literally the only rss reader that did everything I wanted exactly how I wanted it. Lately it's been going downhill though.. it's buggy and the posts aren't displayed as well as they used to. Brief used to display the whole post, or at least most of it, including pictures and everything. Now it's just a short preview and pictures often won't load. I want the old way of displaying posts back! This is the only rss reader I like and now it sucks.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).
It KILLED all my rss-items (even in bookmarks) and it takes years to find support :-(( Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Dear Mr. Kowalczyk,
I'd used your add on for years and it was okay. But since last Update, it doesn't work well. There was no easy access support email :-( Okay, but since now Brief killed all my rss items (cannot even restore them via bookmarks!) I had to find a way to contact you urgenty, so I went to your "support" page, where I had to create a user account, then I found the thread, but it says "from July on no support here" and "please got to discussion thread here" where I'd have to create anoterh account *me going mad* but even that didn't work!!
How will I get my feeds and rss items back? IT IS IMPORTANT. HELP PLS!!
Since others have reported this problem as well, check it, please... Cannot be even my bookmarks are killed. I'm so sad and unglad.
Version 2.0.1 is so buggy that you better don't upgrade or don't install Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I have been using Brief for years. I upgraded to version 2.0.1 and just found that some text is missing, new articles don't correctly displayed, unread count doesn't show up, ...... Don't upgrade, or simply don't install !!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS ADDON IS SO XXXXED UP. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I'm a user from version 1.5 and I have to say that this was once the best RSS reader ever and I really loved it, but it's not any more.
* In the left panel, click on feed A source and right click on feed B, then select "Refresh Now" and it will result in refreshing feed A instead of feed B.
* Why is my right-click turned into a page-flashing funtion when performing in the item view area? I can't view it as a regular web page and do copy-paste work to share or something anymore.
* The auto-focus function is so irritating that it messes up the page position. it's also pretty buggy and not always performs smoothly though. Please, give us back the option to turn it off.
* If you wanna constantly change the CSS naming, get somebody to write an offical guideline and maintain it. Customization becomes meaningless.

This USED to be the most useful addon I had for Firefox, now it is use-LESS since the update to version 2! It rarely is consistent with updates no matter how you set it up in settings. It moves everything marked as read to trash regardless of what you do. It will not show some feed content in the add on itself but if you look in bookmarks under subscribed feeds, the articles are right there. As I said USELESS. If you feel the need to update the GUI that is one thing, but geez, "don't fix what AIN'T broken". Hey, for all of you other developers, I would be willing to pay for an addon that worked as perfectly and seemlessly as the prior version of this now catostrophe called Brief 2.0This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).
Brief freezes with IDM extension Rated 2 out of 5 stars
After installing IDM (internet download manager), Brief freezes and it becomes unusable. If I disable IDM addon, Brief starts again to work properly.
Please have a look on it. I reported also on the forum.
Items from different feeds get mixed up Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it, like an Ex. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Loved it ... a while ago.
I have installed it too many times over the years to count, but had to keep uninstalling it due to its nasty habits and incompatibilities.
It has gotten uglier over time too.
Love the idea, can't live with the reality.
No more shall we give it one last shot.
otiimo addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Ottimo addon, chiedo gentilmente allo sviluppatore con il prossimo aggiornamento, se è possibile regolare e scegliere il colore dello sfondo delle notizie non ancora lette, grazie.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).
Новый интерфейс убил на корню мое использование данным чудом Rated 3 out of 5 stars
На работе использую старый монитор, хоть и 19 дюймов, но разрешение максимум 1280х1024. Brief со старым дизайном имел разделитель левой панели с деревом RSS-подписок, который мог двигаться как угодно, а теперь он имеет жесткое ограничение из-за чего некоторые новости, имеющие картинки высокого разрешения по ширине не помещаются в оставшееся экранное место. Можно было бы смирится и читать, используя горизонтальную полосу прокрутки, но ведь и ее нет.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).

It used to be a good addon, but newer versions have many bugs, new design is ugly and it lacks user experience.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).

v2.0 Customizing dosn't work Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As I notice: Customizing brief look (CSS) dosn't work in v 2.0 as it did in 1.7.3.
Solution: Have to rewrite and/or change customizing form older version as v2.0 work differently.
I use this add-on for a long time and was very happy with it.
Тормозит при скролинге ленты, Ширина боковой панели Rated 3 out of 5 stars
"Упорядочить" убрать в настройки, эта опция нужна редко, тогда всё влезет и по ширине будет нормально.
ps: жаль что автора расширения, нельзя закидать камнями за то, что - он долго реагирует на репорты и делает новые версии по "пол года". я бы с удовольствием его отпиздил ):
Тормозит при скролинге ленты. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Все работает, но есть вопрос. Когда листаешь ленту с большим количеством RSS наблюдается притормаживание. Очень неудобно работать - двигается рывками и по одной записи. Приходится не листать, а удалять по одной. В прошлой версии такого не было. Поправьте пожалуйста.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).
Ширина боковой панели Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Скажите, а можно вместо надписей "Обновить", "Упорядочить", "Настройки" сделать кнопки, чтобы можно было уменьшить ширину боковой панели Brief? В русском языке буквы достаточно широкие, да и шрифт жирный, поэтому боковая панель широковата.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed).

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great surprise this morning: after a few days of worry, Brief is back!
Always so simple and effective but even more enjoyable to use.
Thanks for the job.
I'm in love again, sigh... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love Brief. Frankly this extension exemplifies why many people like Firefox. Firefox gives users the basics and the rest is added on by extensions. Thanks for the update :)
One tiny suggestion: The "Today" section is great because it allows me to see only a small portion of feeds but I'd love to be able to select any date from the stored feeds using a drop-down combo box instead of just one fixed date.
