After install in FF 3 RC3, and when I click on the Feedly toolbar button, it requests for gmail login. After login it gives me an error during load of Feedly and asks me to reload or restart. I reloaded and restarted FF but it keeps getting stuck in trying to load Feedly but never does.
This is the error I get - "[reader][0001] failed to get initial list of unread counts because Failure: 401 -- undefined"

OK. We found the root cause of the problem. There seems to be a bug in firefox regarding sending cookies during HTTP requests if the "accept third party cookies is unset".

So the solution if you want to try feedly is to:
1. Go to firefox > preferences > privacy
2. Check the "Accept third party cookies"
3. Click on the feedly button on the toolbar

And everything else should work normally.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We are going dig deeper in the firefox code and see what is the best way to work around this problem.
