I'm using Better GReader with the Firefox 3.5 nightlies. With version
0.6.1, I've lost the Preview button; this button is present and works
on the 3.5 nightlies with GReader 0.5.2.

Cheers

Same with 3.0.x.

Seems it does work in list view but not expanded view (for both 3.0
and 3.5b).

Same here - v. 3.0.9. No preview button, no preview functionality at
all actually.

Clicking on the article title loads article in a new tab instead of
preview.

Me too. Firefox 3.0.8 on Mac OSX 10.5. No preview at all and the
"preview" button is completely gone.

Using 0.6.1 with the 3.5 nightlies here. It works in List View but not
in Expanded View.

In case anyone was looking to down grade to revert back to the old
behavior.
It can be found here:

Same here -- I initially thought that it was some kind of weird issue
with Windows 7 (I switched roughly at the same time) but reproduced it
on my previous XP install.

Thanks for the link to downgrade! I'll have to do this on my Mac and
PC at home (I chose to skip the update when I started Firefox at work
this morning). Amazing to me how much I was using that preview option,
now that it's gone I really miss it.

I tried downgrading to both of the two previous versions, but it
hasn't fixed the problem.

The preview button and any preview functionality is missing under OS X
as well. I'm running Firefox 3.0.8 with 0.6.1.

Looks like this is a known bug noted by a user on the script's
homepage that the author should fix:

http://userscripts.org/topics/25047

It only happens in expanded view for me, not list view. There is a
user-contributed fix listed in that thread--I'll check it out and
consider it for inclusion. Sorry all!

Apparently rolling back is the only fix. Thanks for the link.

I've just tested the preview feature using 0.6.1 and it works fine on my system, running Firefox 3.0.9

How is it that preview is working for you but no one else?

Dunno. I just updated today to FF 3.0.10 and am using version 0.6.1 of the Better Greader extension and the click to view option of the 2 previews and it just works ....

I just tried it again before writing this to make sure.

Ok I have just re read the entire thread regarding this issue and I apologise to everyone as I hadn't picked up on the list vs expanded view problem and after checking again I can confirm that it behaves the same for me.

In list view it works correctly, It's not there at all in expanded view. I usually browse in list view hence my earlier response.

I have the same problem; works in list view but doesn't work in
expanded view.

I have a solution for those who have greasemonkey installed!!!

Bryan Tsai greasemonkey script works perfectly and its based on the
original preview script by Julien Carosi which needs to be updated,
but i don't think it will EVER happen since its now be over a year
since the last update.... :(

This script WORKS for expanded and list views!!!!!

Hate to say it but that was the last thing I had checked/using in
Better Greader extension.

Sorry Gina but that extension is now uninstalled along with Better
Gmail2.

I am finding out that its better to use greasemonkey scripts than
extensions because the scripts are updated more often and I don't have
to restart Firefox if the script decides to ruin my browsing
experience. Oh Ya install this if you want your scripts to be up to
date http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/26062

Thanks again Gina for compiling all these scripts into great
extensions for those not wanting to delve into greasemonkey!!!

Sorry Sorry for going off topic folks I just had to get that out of
me....
