    Help, help, I'm being repressed!

    (this is firefox on the mac, haven't tried the linux firefox I usually use... why I can't use my linux laptop is a long and tragic story I won't pester you with...)

    I added it to my toolbar this morning but it isn't showing me new posts (the latest one it gives me is from 6 AM). Is that a hiccup that can be overcome or is this just no substitute for a real-time RSS reader?

    PS - Monty, not all titles are available in Betamax--err, Apple :)

    Monty i feel your pain as it doesn't work for opera either. almost makes me want to do something crazy like go back to IE.......... ok that moment of insanity is gone. but hey it would be nice if it worked for firefox or opera.

    on second thought i see neil young on the screen shot---talk about malicious pop-up ads

    A younger Neil, perhaps, but certainly not that grand young man of singer/songwriters. You are cruelly deluded by the Antisquid, my friend...

    ...still working this. My next step is a certain software upgrade over the weekend; will see if this addresses the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience! I'll let you all know here in this thread when I've validated it's fixed.

    I just installed IE7 today and the toolbar button seems to be working with it. Its not real-time, but posts within an hour or two show up.

    Interesting, and thanks. I have IE7 and my feed is several days old. I've read that some people need to uninstall / reinstall the button. I will try that, but also need to upgrade the feed software itself.

    I may have spoke too soon--this morning it is still showing the same "new" ones I had last night.

    I'm at a bit of a loss... I've updated our forum software, still not at all getting what I'd expect. I'll still play around with this but it could take some time... My apologies!

    Mine is terrible. Days and days old (only updates when I troubleshoot it). We'll get there... people who are interested should "subscribe" to this thread, and they'll get an email notification when I reply with confirmation that I actually got this to work!

    Hey everybody, I think this finally works. Give it a try -- and you'll see if you need to refresh, there is now a manual "refresh" link at the bottom of the list of threads on the drop-down menu. Enjoy!
