  1. Hey Chris, thanks for the update. It’s one of the few extentions I consistently use day in, day out.

    One thing I’ve noticed: in Firefox with the default theme under Windows XP, the “Limit Age”, “Reload” and “Search” icons are centered in the extension’s toolbar (8px of space top and bottom for the first two) but the baseline for the “Open All”, “Mark All Read” and “Cancel All” icons is three pixels lower (5px from bottom of the toolbar). I don’t know if this is new to the 2.0 version of the extension.

    This update, like version 1.3.1, locks up my Firefox during the “checking feeds” process. It’s a real solid lockup, too — have to kill the firefox.exe process in Task Manager.

    I’m running Firefox on Windows Vista SP1.

    I’m reverting to version 1.2.2.

    Thanks for the extension, I’ve been using it happily for a few months now. I previously used Brief, but it slowed things down too much and I didn’t use very many of the features. Feed Sidebar is perfect for me.

    I’ve noticed three minor problems, though. The search bar looks bad in the Noia 2.0 eXtreme theme. I nearly always get at least one feed fail, and the way they are presented is annoying. And when it searches for feeds Firefox hangs pretty bad, though since it only checks for feeds when I open the sidebar, this isn’t so bad.

    Thanks again!

  4. Ooh, and some sort of alert when there’s a new item would be helpful too, so I dont have to keep the blank sidebar open all the time waiting for something new to show up.

    This is a great extension– I have one request for it, though.

    I would love to be able to change the position of the sidebar, (i.e. put it on the right side of the window instead of the left) because it is more out-of-the-way there and I can leave it there without it bothering me.

    Thanks for your hard work. I’m glad you’re dedicated to continuing to improve it!

    The feed sidebar is really useful. But it does not work perfectly. I wonder : is there a place where bugs can be reported ? Is there a place where we can download the source code and participate it the development ?

    I experience such problem as : new items in the feeds are not shown in the feed side bar.

    Thanks for your work,
