Register Newsblur as RSS reader FF 82

Now using Firefox, v82 x64. Firefox has re-added the RSS feed option at some point (switching over from Chrome) and Newsblur is not an option. So, I went to the Newsblur site and saw the item “Firefox: Register Newsblur as an RSS Reader” in the Goodlies & Extras". But nothing happens.

The URL showing for the link is “https://newsblur.com/#” which goes nowhere.

Good question! I’d love to support FF but I can’t find any information about their support for RSS readers. I upgraded to v82 but don’t see RSS anywhere in Settings. Can you post a screenshot or link to a page that explains these changes?

Oops, it’s an add-on. It came bundled with my install, so I thought it was included. “Awesome RSS”.

I personally no longer care about this, but others still might.
Firefox just committed the unforgivable fatal flaw of deleting about 90% of my bookmarks for no apparent reason. So I’m reverting myself back to Google.

Just getting into Newsblur and love it (thanks so much for developing it!) :slight_smile: Was trying to add the RSS reader feature for Firefox but also having this problem. Wondering if you were able to find out anything else about this topic?

I use Firefox 85 with this extension:

I think it now supports Newsblur out of the box; otherwise you can add it in the add-on settings:
