Thanks. Just the help I was looking for.


Hi. Thanks. Good tutorial.


With the release of 1.0, step 1 of configuring your RSS account is a bit different...but most will figure that out. The tutorial is perfect and I was able to connect to all my favorite sites: http://www.zeldman.com/feed/zeldman.xml
http://www.mikeindustries.com/blog/index.rdf (RSS1.0 test)
http://www.mikeindustries.com/blog/index.xml (RSS2.0)

Thunderbird is definitely a great product!

Cheers Ron! Great toot.


Thanks for the help. This is by far the best rss reader I've found.

In November 2006 Firefox 2.0 was launched and there should be a built-in support for the Thunderbird RSS-reader. So, when you click "Subscribe this feed" after the address bar in Firefox 2.0, the feed is added to TB. But...it does not work that way, there is a bug.

Have you Ron or anyone else managed to fix TB to work with Firefox 2.0? Every piece of advice is welcome :-)
Thanks for the comment. As a matter of fact, I hadn't realized that the feature you describe was even there, but I test it and figured out how to make it work. I've added the tutorial.



I would like to be able to click the rss icon that appears in firefox2.0 address bar, and have it add the feed to thunderbird. I did try to get this working by choosing the thunderbird executeable from the dropdown box, but nothing happens when I click the rss icon.

I suppose the thunderbird executeable would need to support some kind of rss url arguments.


Where is the rss susbscription information stored ? I would like to hand edit the file and add rss subscriptions.


Thanks this was great info.


There is another way to do this in one click. The tutorial is on http://www.blowyouros.com/2009/01/firefox-to-thunderbird-rss-feed-one-click-subscribe/

We must not forget that it was not anything obvious that the mail client software will host e-mail and also RSS feeds. It's a wonderful thing, and it's all thanks to Mozilla and the open source code!


thnks good
very nice.


It's a wonderful thing, and it's all thanks to Mozilla and the open source code!


I use Mozilla and just wanna say - Thanks man and Happy 2011 for all.
