Brief replaces Firefox 64 - and Later - Missing RSS button, and makes reading RSS feeds easy.

HEY, FIREFOX! Where is my RSS Feed Button?!? It Just Disappeared one day!!!


Feed reader replacements for Firefox

Firefox's built-in support for web feeds and Live Bookmarks was removed with the release of Firefox version 64 in December 2018.
(Merry Christmas from Jackasses!!!!)

After reviewing the usage data and technical maintenance requirements for these features and taking into account alternative RSS/Atom feed readers already available to you, we have realized that these features have an outsized maintenance and security impact relative to their usage. Removing the feed reader and Live Bookmarks allows us to focus on features that make a greater impact.

With this article, we hope to help you find a suitable replacement for the built-in feed reader and migrate your live bookmarks to your new feed reader.

Well, Software Santa dug through the Mud to find a Lotus for you. Try this add-on FIRST!

About this extension
Easily bookmark and tag interesting items. Browse your feeds in a couple of useful ways - view only unread or bookmarked entries, display a single feed or a whole folder, show full items or only headlines. Quickly find a piece of news using the search bar. Let yourself be notified when new items are available and track their number using the status bar. Customize the look of feeds. Use keyboard shortcuts to browse the pile of news faster. Above all, do everything simply and intuitively.


  • Brief stores your subscribed feeds as Live Bookmarks. You can arrange them in folders.
  • List of feeds is displayed in a sidebar. You can click on a single feed or on a whole folder to view it.
  • Feeds are displayed on a seamless page. Unread items are highlighted and there are buttons on each item to mark it as read or delete it.
  • Headlines view gives you a more compact display. You can also choose to view only the unread items, or the bookmarked ones.
  • Use the search box to quickly find a piece of news. All articles are stored kept permanently so you have a record of everything you've read.
  • You can bookmark and tag interesting articles with a single click.
  • Brief checks feeds for updates in the background and notifies you about new items.
  • You can select how often to check for updates and how long to keep the downloaded items. You may even have separate settings for each feed, if you need.
