When I click the subscribe to rss feed I don't get the subscribe using live bookmarks screen the tutorials shows. I get a loading message then nothing and no bookmark of any type is added and there is no live feed.

If I look at my bookmarks there are no live feed bookmarks and no category of "live feed" exists.

What is the Web Feed setting in Tools > Options > Applications ? The default is Preview in Firefox

Thank you so much. It was as simple as that. The rss feed was set to my contact manager which was in a constant state of checking the net as a result. This solved both problems.

I am not finding the "options" option under tools on Firefox. I am trying to get live bookmarks as an option when trying to subscribe to an RSS feed. Thanks.

I'm on a mac. When I go to Preferences >Applications I do not see rss feeds in list?

It is probably labeled as "Web Feed", so you can look for that in Firefox > Preferences > Applications

You can also check the feed prefs on the about:config page and reset them if they apply to your problem.
