How to Change the Feed Reader on Firefox

Mozilla Firefox contains built-in support for Web feeds, also known as RSS or Atom feeds. When a Web page contains a feed, Firefox displays an orange feed icon in the address bar. You can click the icon to open the feed in your default feed reader. Firefox's default feed reader is a preview page that displays the contents of the feed, but you can change it to a third-party Web-based or desktop application. You can also create a live bookmark in the feed. Live bookmarks are bookmark folders that Firefox updates with the contents of the feed.
