Add-on Brief loses functionality with latest FFX version

more options

I just upgraded to Version 36, and now the Brief add-on (feed reader) has lost some functionality. Specifically, the list of all feeds is displayed, but when I click on an individual feed or a folder (e.g., "Computer") to limit the display, the display doesn't change to reflect my choice. Before Version 36, I could bring up a limited view, but now I can't. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Brief, but there was no change in the behavior. (I am running Windows 8.1 on a Lenovo G700 laptop, if that is relevant.) I checked out the change list for the upcoming Version 37, but that doesn't help me--I'm not the developer, and I'm working with Version 36. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this from the user end? Thanks.

Sorry, I don't use that add-on myself.

Also, based upon the User Reviews here - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/brief/reviews/ - it looks like that Add-on is broken in Firefox 36. You might want to try the Development Channel version at the bottom of this page - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/brief/ - and see if that works better.
