i recently got latest firefox and thers a live bookmarks feature that seems pretty good. for example u can look at all the latest news headlines in a menu without even goin to the webpage.
on firefox site it says to enable it on a site u click on rss in bottom right corner of browser.
on gp32x.de thers no rss in bottom right, but it does say rss on the main page under the menu at left, is this the same thing or sumthin totaly diferent, as clickn it gets a page of code or sumthin?

thanks

Firefox can detect RSS/RDF feeds two ways:

1. links to files with the .rdf extension
2. meta tag in the html that links to the feed

Since the feed on gp32x has an .xml extension and it's not referenced in the meta tags, Firefox can't tell it's an RSS feed. It could just be a regular XML file for all it knows.

Oh, and in 1.0 final it won't be an RSS icon, but it'll look almost exactly the same. It's an orange square with a kind of radar logo on it.
