  1. Extremely slow feeds

    Netvibes is amazing and it has a wide array of features, however, I find it very unappealing that some of my feeds are not updated in real time, some of them take as long as 48 hours to update, this is particularly annoying with high density feeds such as google news for example, if I manually open the feed on the browser, I can see the new content, but often my dashboard will only update once every day, surely this isn't any server restriction from netvibes considering that my twitter, reddit, facebook and gmail apps update in real time, I…

    • change the gmail widget to use oauth

      As of now, the netvibes gmail widget requires your google login. Gmail supports oauth imap connections. I'd like to use the gmail widget, but I don't like the idea of having my credentials stored on sites across the net. Your facebook and twitter app uses oauth, why not gmail?

        • Format blockquotes to distinguish from regular text

          I read blog posts and other material that uses blockquotes (usually indented material quoted from other sources) extensively. Your reader does not distinguish blockquotes from the other material, which makes following the argument -- they said this, I think that -- difficult. I have to leave your reader to see that structure. Too bad.

          • Make it so you can resize the widgets.

            It would be great to be able to resize the widgets by clicking on the corner of the widget and moving it. Some widgets take up more space than they need to.

                Since ios 9.0.1 or the previous one, the Netvibes app has been consistently freezing when tapping "mark all as read" in a Reader feed.

                • Fix a problem with Twitter search widget

                  In the Twitter search widget, a search for #solspollues doesn't display any result while the same search in Twitter search in the web returns many results ! https://twitter.com/search?q=%23solspollues&src=typd
                  Could you say me why ? Others kind of search are OK.

                  • Being able to control the "refresh" of the tab

                    Since a few days, I notice that my netvibes tabs are automatically refreshed as soon as I'm leaving the scope of the window. Which means I can't stay on the data I'm displaying, for instance I click on a link inside the page, and a few moment later, I loose the data being refreshed by a new copy of the page. So, I would like to be able to control this thru a parameter. Thanks.

                    • Fix issues related to saved items in mobile version

                      The mobile version (the site and the ios app) has some problems:
                      - Sometimes, saving an item to read later doesn't save the current item, saving a previous item instead
                      - Unmarking a saved item hides another saved items of the same day until the page is reloaded
                      - When a "maximized" saved item is unmarked, it's not possible to navigate to the next saved item. This issue is related to the previous one.

                      This is particularly annoying to everyone who save items to read later in the mobile version

                          Netvibes had the potential to be an awesome site, but what has happened?!

                          Haven't used for ages and came back, but what's happened with the add apps/rss facility. Now a huge page of hundreds of icons. Seriously???????? Utterly useless and such a shame. How can a user possibly use this? Just a mess. Such a shame

                          • Fix UWA Module 3rd party widgets

                            I've built some custom personal UWA widgets which are being hosted using public dropbox links. For the past year, I was able to load these through the UWA Module widget without problem. But no more; now when I try to load them, I recieve the following message:

                            This widget cannot be displayed cause of invalid url.

                            I have checked the URL, it works fine. Are external URLs being purposely blocked by Netvibes now? I hope not, as this would make the UWA Module widget completely useless.

                            Please fix the UWA Module widget.

                              It would be nice if the "update status" window was not the foremost item in the Facebook widget. The way it is now I am worried about accidentally making posts. Otherwise Netvibes is awesome!

                              • iGoogle import wizard

                                Your service is incredibly similar to Google's iGoogle website which is being retired on 1 November 2013. It would be a huge opportunity for netvibes if it offered some sort of iGoogle import wizard that allows users to easily transport their data across. Could you probably do this in one of 2 ways:
                                1. Use Google APIs to have the users sign in and pull their data across.
                                2. Direct users to export their data from iGoogle settings (this exports as an XML files) and re-upload this.

                                I was directed to your site several months ago from another website offering…

                                • I suggest you look into RSS feed preview - it's broken.

                                  Hello Netvibes team :-) Thanks for the improvements.

                                  That said, the widget preview for RSS feeds still doesn't work.
                                  (It either doesn't show up at all or the frame pops up but no data is loaded)
                                  Would you mind looking into that? It's pretty annoying.
                                  Thanks

                                    Google gmail is not letting me logon from your gmail app on my home page. They email me that there is suspicious access from netvibes in the UK attempting to access my login with my password. This happens when I tried to long thru the app. Google then throws me out to reset my password or logon directly thru google .

                                      • Articles is marked as read but can't hide untill I mark it as not read and mark as read again

                                        Big problem - read articles don't let read not read articles

                                        • Calendar

                                          I use a calendar from https://www.google.com/calendar/ical/vhventura%40gmail.com/private-19a565c23b6e4d9680605cce25c084da/basic.ics
                                          The names of the days (at least in the portuguese version) are not correct: M. T, F, T, S, T and S which mean nothing either in english or portuguese.
                                          In english, as you know, we must have: M, T, W, T, F, S and S and in portuguese S, T, Q, Q, S, S and D, for, in both cases, monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday and sunday.
                                          Please correct this.
