Actually this used to be Brief's official support/announcements thread, but ancestor has ceased use of this thread in all capacities because he has his own forum setup for people to seek Brief support on. ancestor even uses his forum to make Brief announcements.

So this thread is no longer needed. People should leave this thread to die and be buried in the graveyard of old, dead threads.

Ah. Well in that case, having him edit the first post with a "Forum moved, go url here /url link at the top would certainly be helpful.
Sometimes my brain works too fast for my mind to keep up.

Hello.

I have a problem with brief (1.2.5 version).
When i "mark as read" an article, now, the article is deleted. I don't have anymore articles marked as unread.
I tried uninstall/reinstall brief but same problem.

Do you have an idea?

Regards,

Ngamer01

ptree, please use Brief's official support forums. You don't need an account there to post.

A fork of Brief 1.7 alpha which seems to have fixed the compatibility issues with Firefox 21+:

I didn't think it would need any compatibility fixes. Brief 1.6.2 still works fine in Firefox beta 22 so I assume 1.7 alpha should be just as fine. :-k

Fx 22b1 and 1.6.2

Apparently the changes to the History API were pushed back to Fx 22, as version 1.6.2 is still working fine while giving the following errors under Fx 21:

Brief 1.7 alpha does work with the feeds that already exist, but cannot pick up new live bookmarks as feeds, modify or delete feeds. I assume Brief 1.6.2 does the same.

Disclaimer: I'm the developer of the fork mentioned earlier. I've contacted Adam and he said that he will continue Brief's development. However, he has virtually no time, so I decided to make the fork available to the public at least until the official Brief picks up the required API fixes. The development goes on Github, so everyone is welcome to participate.

Brief status update.

I'm working on Brief now, so Brief is alive and going well while my fork (Digest) has been abandoned.

This thread seems to be pretty much dead, so if you stumbled into it and want to ask a question, the official support thread https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/t/support-brief/6514 is likely to be a better place.
