Beta Version Fixed Old Problems but need to MERGE old squlite databases Rated 5 out of 5 stars

love Brief, longtime user, but when latest 1.73 version was not letting me add new feeds (I could subscribe but Brief didn't update them) and reinstalling did nothing I tried the beta version which seems to be GREAT but there is one problem. I have saved a lot of favorite posts in my old brief. They didn't transfer in the upgrade. So I replaced my brief.sqlite with the old one to get back my old saved pages and that worked BUT I also lost all my unread "new" donwloaded pages and Brief won't restore them upon refresh. Need to know if there is a way to MERGE old brief.sqlite file with a new one in cases where the old info doesn't transfer to the new version. A total replace makes you lose all new downloads. Maybe a new sort of sqlite import feature would work? When you have years of saved stuff you don't want to lose it. Thanks! (also is there a new support site working? the old one is mostly 2013 and earlier) thanks!

Brief is Broken Now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This used to work great and then suddenly it's not working at all. It says I have 105 items in the unread folder on the left but on the right it says "no items." No matter what feed I click on and how many items are in the category at right (there are as many as 20), it still says no items on the main screen. I cannot read any of my feeds. If I double click it takes me to the website itself. Also the icon on the upper right of my browser window no longer shows the number of feeds. Link to tech support is not working. I uninstalled and reinstalled the add on but that did nothing. Any ideas how to fix?
