My current configuration of web browser and RSS reader is Firefox1 and Feedly. When I visit a website which I wish to follow and the website offers RSS feed, I like to add the RSS feed to Feedly for easy follow-up/reading. However, when I click the RSS button in Firefox, as a standard there is no option to add the site to Feedly.
Despair not, there is a quite an easy way.
Open the web address:
You should find a list with Preference Name which should contain multiple sets of items like:
browser.contentHandlers.types.0.title browser.contentHandlers.types.0.type browser.contentHandlers.types.0.uri browser.contentHandlers.types.1.title browser.contentHandlers.types.1.type browser.contentHandlers.types.1.uri
In my Firefox version 56 I have 6 of these sets available (#0 - #5)
Choose one of the sets which is either empty or unused, i.e. has the following values:
title: chrome://browser-region/locale/region.properties type: application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed uri: chrome://browser-region/locale/region.properties
title: Feedly type: application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed uri: http://cloud.feedly.com/#subscription/feed/%s
I chose to change set #1, thus my final result looks like this:
browser.contentHandlers.types.1.title Feedly browser.contentHandlers.types.1.type application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed browser.contentHandlers.types.1.uri http://cloud.feedly.com/#subscription/feed/%s
Visit a RSS page
In the top where it says Subscribe to this feed using
Live Bookmarksyou may select the dropdown and the option
Feedlyshould be available.
Press the button
