Question: Distinguishing autodiscovered RSS feeds in Firefox?

Fri, 13 Jan 2006 12:57:39 -0800

I have an HTML file whose title is Donald. It contains autodiscovery metadata for three RSS feeds, titled Huey, Dewey and Louie. Firefox recognizes the feeds and offers them with these titles. But if I subscribe to one, Firefox labels it Donald -- the title of the original page, not the specific feed. How can I get Firefox to use the feed title instead, to avoid confusing users?

Can you post your code?

I don't think it matter, DrJohnEvans. It looks like Firefox uses the current HTML < title> regardless of what's in the < link>. You can use this page for an example. It links to the ask.metafilter.com RSS feed, but uses the title of this thread.
