To restore or change the way the rss feeds behaves in firefox 3 you must go to TOOLS and then select Options and then under applications type Live Bookmark and then under action , select it and choose the way you want to receive it or display..

Actually, you can also edit browser.feeds.handlers.application in about:config to point to the reader you want to use (the address will be passed to it as the first argument). This is the most convenient way of setting a reader in a dot-directory, for example a custom binary directory called ~/.bin. It beats me why Mozilla have chosen to use the stupid "browse file"-dialog to locate binaries.

Thanks so much. I thought I had lost my mind. I knew how to change feeds two days ago. Got a firefox update today and couldn't figure it out. Whew. Thanks!

Thanks! I wanted to change the feed from the default I had selected and was lost on where to do it. Thanks for this posting!

@Jonathan Thanks a million for this tip! I was having a hard time figuring out how to change the default reader! Now it seems so obvious :)

I know this article is a little old, but it was the first one when I googled the topic. I noticed in Firefox 3, the Feeds tab doesn't exist. It has changed to Applications. From there you can scroll down to Web Feed to change your default Feed Reader. Hope that helps.

You can also do this with netvibes. http://blog.netvibes.com/?2006/10/25/83-firefox-2-and-netvibes
