Known Issues

Can’t open feeds directly in RSSOwl. This appears to be a bug in RSSOwl itself, which doesn’t register itself as a feed: URI handler on OS X as it ought to.

In Safari v8 and newer, when you try to open a feed in your RSS application, you will see an alert message asking if you want to add the feed to your Shared Links:

Add to Shared Links

Click Cancel to continue opening the feed in your RSS application.

The extra feeds (Favorites and Recent Subscriptions) that were available in the extension menu when visiting YouTube user profile pages are no longer available. YouTube have deprecated the v2 API the provided these feeds, and there is no equivalent in v3.
