    Adding feeds to firefox.


    Hello all,
    Given an rss adress what's the way I can add the feed as Firefox live bookmark. For example, I'd like to add linuxforums feeds I get from http://feeds.linuxforums.org/ but there's no marker in the statusbar, and dragging it to the adequate folder doesn't help either.
    Please help me. Thanks in advance.

    Go to:
    Bookmarks-->Manage Bookmarks
    Then:
    File | New Live Bookmark

    You can use extensions ie: sage to manage feeds easier.

    I tried thunderbird's RSS feed support, it's pretty cool, I like it better than firefox's RSS support.

    Anyway it would be nice to have this status bar icon for linuxforums.org. I don't think it's big deal to add it.
    Code:
    <link rel="alternate" title="LinuxForums.org" href="http&#58;//www.linuxforums.org/path_to_rss/feed.rss" type="application/rss+xml">
    Adding this to main page should fix it.
