Mozilla plans to remove RSS feed reader and Live Bookmarks support from Firefox [ghacks.net]
A recent entry on Mozilla's bug tracking website indicates that Mozilla plans to cut RSS feed reader and Live Bookmarks support from the organization's Firefox web browser.After careful consideration of various options (which also included doing nothing, or investing heavily in updating the code), we've decided to go ahead and remove builtin feed support from Firefox.
Firefox removes core product support for RSS/Atom feeds [gijsk.com]
What is happening?
After considering the maintenance, performance and security costs of the feed preview and subscription features in Firefox, we’ve concluded that it is no longer sustainable to keep feed support in the core of the product. While we still believe in RSS and support the goals of open, interoperable formats on the Web, we strongly believe that the best way to meet the needs of RSS and its users is via WebExtensions.
