As i understand currently the Feedview icon in the status bar has been removed (?)(for Firefox 1.5). This leaves a user with only one option of using the subscribe to feed button in the location bar for adding one Live Bookmark to his bookmarks list. Mostly I use Firefox with no toolbars to conserve space and view more and uses keyboard for most of the navigation. That leaves me with no option to easily add such a feed to bookmark. As far as I think there is no other way. Couldn't the icon be brought back with limited functionality, maybe (as there are problems in working with RSS /Atom feeds). Please see.
dupe of Bug 304497?
(In reply to comment #1) > dupe of Bug 304497? > Anbo, not quite. I have been looking for the past 30 minutes for this very problem. Prior to my upgrade to FF1.5 (1.07 I think it was), I had an icon in my status bar whenever a feed was available for a page, now it sits in the location bar -- which I had to turn back on in order to see when a page has feeds available. I would like to be able to add it back into my status bar if possible. Would it be possible to add this as an option?
Since bug 304497 did provide a method to add a live bookmark, adjusting the summary to reflect that you can add one, you just don't know when there's one to add without opening the bookmarks menu.
Summary: No method to add a live bookmark when navigation toolbar is hidden → No method to see that a page has feeds when navigation toolbar is hidden
Version: 1.5.0.x Branch → Trunk
This would make a great extension, but I can't see maintaining this around the ssl lock.
