  • I have a question. I want to keep some feeds articles for a long time, so how can I prevent articles from disappearing because of reaching the limit of articles?. I know that I can extend the limit, but I have feeds that have so many articles that this limit is easily overcome, so if I star an article or I set a tag in it, it will not disappear or those will be deleted too?. Is there any way to save articles forever?.
    Starred articles won't be auto-deleted so theoretically they are kept "forever". However, Firefox still seems to have reliability problems with IndexedDB so it's recommended to save your important article links to e.g. Pocket as well (or some other service). See the "Send to" menu in the article context.
  • This is a very useful extension. Remember a lot Google Reader and works very fine!
  • I switched from the abandoned NewsFox add-on to Feedbro when FF Quantum went live. Feedbro offers comparable features and I have used it daily since then. Good job !
  • One key point missing to perfect: sync across browser, do you have any manual way to do that?
  • I've used this extensions for at least an year with Firefox for Windows, Linux and macOS and it does a good job. It has a problem with the contextual menu for a feed. On Linux and on macOS, it disappears as soon as I raise the right mouse button (or I raise my hand after a 2 finger press). Keeping the right mouse button pressed and selecting an entry doesn't work either.
    "NOTE 3!: Firefox 66+ on Linux and MacOS has a regression bug that messes up feed tree right-click menu. Workaround: open about:config and set "ui.context_menus.after_mouseup" to true."

  • Since Mozilla removed Live Bookmarks from Firefox I have been using Thunderbird to follow my feeds. The way Thunderbird shows the feeds was driving me nuts. Compared to Thunderbird, this addon is a revelation. I like the UI and the way it presents the updated feeds so you can immediately see once there is an update. I really like the aggregated list. Since all articles open in Firefox it works with all content blockers enabled.

    It has one crucial shortcoming (at least for me): When comparing my still subscribed feeds in Thunderbird with the feeds I now have in Firefox I was missing a few articles. Feedbro was seemingly a day behind in some cases. Then I stumbled across another review in which someone had the same problem. Apparently, it's a timezone problem with the feeds and Feedbro does not show articles from the future. Well, Thunderbird can do it and Livemarks can do it, so it's probably not impossible. Since it was declared as a WONTFIX even as an option I cannot rate it higher.

    Edit: I have read the reply to the other review I am referring to but that does not solve my problem. Maybe you should mention this behaviour among the other notes below the description. It might save other confused people the time I had to spend in order to track down the cause of why Feedbro behaves differently than other feed readers. I have no idea who is doing it 'right' and I don't really care since my needs in that regard won't change with the answer. However, I'm adjusting the rating to be less 'bizarre' to better reflect that the addon works but still fails my usecase.
    It's not a timezone problem. It's just that feed entries that are marked to the future are not loaded until the actual time is past the feed entry date (timezones are taken into account). Read the previous reply to understand why. Quite bizarre logic you have with your review ratings.
  • I use this app lots of times every day and really love it. I was getting a bit desperate that I couldn't delete feeds and found that setting ui.context_menus.after_mouseup to TRUE fixed that. Now, my only beef is that duplicate articles are not collapsed: eg, the BBC site may have 10 articles all with the same header and it becomes distracting to page though them all (INOreader has this option). Thanks!
  • A great free offline alternative to other RSS services.
  • I was using Reeder on Mac and was looking for one that works on Windows. I tried many RSS reader apps (including online apps, Windows native apps and browser extensions). Among them Feedbro is the only one that works with all my 250+ RSS URLs with no problem.
  • this extension has great functions,but It's a disaster when indexdDB error comes to me(many times) ,even though I refreshed firefox at about:support, it still comes to me after a while(didn't update firefox),btw my firefox version is 68.0b7 (64 bit)

    I hope this extension could be stable , and if this problem can't be fixed, I only have to turn to inoreader= =
  • Must-have extension for me, thank you for making it! My only question/suggestion would be if there is a way to export/import the starred items list?
  • I had high hopes for this extension but the interface feels really clunky and unintuitive. I'm providing this feedback hoping that at least some of these points can be improved in future updates.
    - I keep expecting to be able to right click an entry in the article list to display a context menu to mark it as unread/read, mark this and all previous articles as read/unread, star, etc., but this opens it in a new tab instead and I see no way to change that functionality.
    - For some reason sometimes when trying to switch between feeds by clicking on one the first click only highlights the feed and a second click is necessary to actually switch to it, this is intermittent though. (This may have something to do with having two Feedbro tabs open and adding a new feed on one of them)
    - Selecting "Show only unread articles" doesn't refresh the list so it initially seems like it's not doing anything.
    - When changing the "Feed entry content" it's not obvious that only new articles will be effected so again, this initially appears to do nothing.
    - When using the Dark theme, if using the full article view and the page includes hard-coded dark fonts the text is almost invisible.
    - The Feedback link for the Firefox extension for some reason brings me to the Chrome Web Store instead of the Firefox Add-ons page.
    - The tooltip for marking an article as read reads "Mark this entry read/unread - Shortcut: m" but this seems to only work intermittently, if it stops working refreshing the page allows it to work again.
    - It's great that this supports keyboard shortcuts, but for some reason arrow keys aren't used. I would expect to be able to move through the list of articles with arrow keys.

    It's obviously not all negative though, I was surprised that this RSS reader supports custom rules and I love how much control this gives me to change what is displayed. The functionality to search for RSS feeds in the current page is simple but also very useful.
  • last update broke everything, literally - got disgusted with the add-on, it's developer and his idea of a support channel ... email

    moved to Smart RSS Reader
    Not sure what you meant by "update broke everything" (Feedbro or Firefox update) but it seems that when Firefox updates to 67, some users may experience problems if Firefox automatically creates a new profile.

  • I propose to add such a function starred items cannot be deleted without confirmation. Or fasten the star-marked news. To avoid accidental deletion.
    Ah! Ok. Got it.
  • Feedbro popup doesn't follow selected theme colors...it always white...and no way to export Feedbro custom settings...please add. Thanks!!
