Add Feedly to Firefox's Feed Handlers List

Illustration for article titled Add Feedly to Firefoxs Feed Handlers List

If you use Feedly, here's how to update Firefox so you can subscribe to feeds directly from the feed URL.


When you visit the URL for an RSS feed in Firefox, you can see a preview of the content and options for subscribing. Feedly isn't enabled by default, but the instructions below will add it.

  1. Type about:config into the Firefox address bar.
  2. Search for contentHandlers. You will see a list of values with the following pattern: browser.contentHandlers.types.#.*. These should be in sets of threes with the # replaced by a number and the * replaced by title, type, and uri in each set.
  3. Add a new set of values with the next highest unused number or modify an existing one. If Google or Feedly is one of the existing options, you can modify one of those. The new values should be as follows:
  • browser.contentHandlers.types.#.title - Feedly
  • browser.contentHandlers.types.#.type - application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed
  • browser.contentHandlers.types.#.uri -

The changes will take effect the next time you start Firefox.
