Cant change site location in live bookmark.


Hello, I started to use RSS feed recently, and on live bookmark the first link is always the link to the website. i added certain feed but when i press "Open website" i get the RSS feed add window. I went to properties and i saw the 'Site Location' is the same as 'Feed Location', but i can not change the site location info, its uneditable. On other bookmarks i have the option to open the website via the live bookmark (the first link in the menu). Is there a way to change the site location in live bookmark?

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

greasemonkey, adblock plus, tab mix plus

If you use the bookmarks Library/manager by taking the show all bookmarks option you will find RSS feeds listed in the same way as other bookmarks.

Select and higlight one and you get options to view and edit the fields.

  • Name
  • Feed location
  • Description
  • Sitelocation

I tried it, Site Location is still uneditable there.

You can't change that location field field AFAIK.
Firefox fills it automatically from the data in the feed's xml file.
