The new version of the popular browser Firefox includes a fine Web feeds (RSS) reader and allows you to easily subscribe to online aggregators. If you are reading a blog or a site where feeds are available you’ll see an orange icon next to the location field with the URL.
Clicking on this icon opens the built-in reader with some default engines. Unfortunately, Netvibes is not in the default configuration which has been chosen by the Firefox developers (except in France and Poland).
Lots of you have already sent us emails to know if something can be done to fix this. Thanks to the nice people from Mozilla Links we found an easy solution for you. You’ll just have to click on the link below and voilà.
Update: This link works on the original page and may not work if you read this post through a feed reader
If you check the box “Always use Netvibes to subscribe to feeds” it means that each time you’ll click on the orange icon you’ll automatically add that feed to your Netvibes account. Nice isn’t it?
Update: It seems that there’s a little bug in Firefox which prevents you from selecting Netvibes in the Preferences window. We found 2 workarounds:
- Click on the orange icon while reading a blog, you’ll be abble to select Netvibes in the dropdown list.
- or while in the Preferences window select a feed reader (Bloglines for instance) and close the window. Open the window again and then you’ll be abble to select Netvibes
