How can I import the list of rss feeds from Opera to Firefox?

Posted

I'm saying goodbye to Opera (12.16) and want to import my data. Importing bookmarks via html file into Firefox worked fine. But I cannot find a way to import my RSS feeds (a list of close to 200 entires) into Firefox. (Opera exports the feed list as .opml ... I haven't found another option.) Do I seriously have to import them manually? Thanks so much for any helpful hints!

Cool! That worked.

(It took a while to import and the browser froze shortly, but that was only a minor bug and now everything is over here.)
