No other ePub reader that I know about navigates solely in this way. It would be really good to have "next" and "previous" buttons that navigated through the file according to the <spine toc="ncx"> section of the content.opf

The sample can be found here: http://www.lulu.com/content/e-book/d...-mouse/7867672

(The preview link under that ugly green cover. Lulu have only just started handling ePub, and their cover upload mechanism is broken.)
Thanks for your feedback! Please load the epub again with the new version 1.1.0, should be okay now: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/45281.

If you load it, you will see in the navigationbar links with name "Navpoint*". Here an explanation what this is:

EPUBReader reads the "spine" section of "content.opf" and shows in the navigationbar a link to every entry. Additionally it tries to get a nice text for the link. So it looks with the URL in "spine" in file "toc.ncx" to see if it can find one. If not, "Navpoint*" is displayed. In other words: everytime you see "Navpoint*", no information in "toc.ncx" can be found.
