Trash does not show numbers Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Please fix ! Since the last update Feb 11 2011 the number no longer displays in trash.
So I have no idea if I need to empty it. Also, many of the keyboard shortcuts clash with my other firefox addon shortcuts so it is important to be able to choose the shortcuts with brief. Would like the x-delete to display at the bottom of each article item and at the top. Otherwise this is an excellent addon. Please fix ! Thankyou !
Thankyou for 1 fix but please fix another problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars
CHANGED REVIEW RATING:I have now tested the latest Brief Addon Version 1.2.5 and the problem where Brief only checks for new feeds after the initial check when first opening firefox has now been corrected... and it will now check as often as you set it to. Thankyou for this fix webdeveloper! So I will change my previous rating of 3 stars to 4 stars, and will change to 5 stars when there is a fix for the problem of when the brief notification popup displays, it stays up there too long and my firefox freezes during that time. Thankyou!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.5).
PLEASE FIX THIS ADDON!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
#1 Brief addon only checks for new feeds after the initial check when first opening firefox. I need feeds checked every 10 minutes, and if not, then this Brief addon is completely useless to me and I must switch to another addon.When monitoring posts on forums etc., it is very necessary to monitor them at least every 10 min, so you can have quicker communications, especially pertinent when you have a serious problem to solve.
#2 A second problem: when the brief notification popup displays, it stays up there too long and my firefox freezes during that time where I cannot do any other tasks. I have to sit and wait for the Brief notification popup to slowly go away before I can do other tasks. Can't click anything and can't even scroll a page to read while waiting. Could we please have a Closebutton X in the notification popup, the same as the Update Scanner addon has in their notification popup.
When fixed I will change star rating to 5 stars as the older versions were absolutely excellent. I highly recommend the older versions to all others! Was using this addon for a year so happily until the last 2 versions that are faulty.
Please please fix this problem webdeveloper Adam! Thankyou!
