    create dynamic rss menu in firefox extension.

    Hey,

    I already have an extension working which adds a menu to the main menu for specific static bookmarks, just like the bookmarks menu. In that menu, a tiny javascript takes the url and obviously nvigates to the relevant page. All nice and simple, and working.

    Now I am excesively new to this and would like to add one section to the menu for live bookmarks.

    As far as I can figure, it would require a js function which when called, accepted the rss url as input, and then took the first say 10 live items and create a submenu (embedded in th extension menu) containing navigable links to those 10 items.

    The problem is not so much that i need it doing for me, its just I really don't know where to start. I have looked for js tutorials, all good, but any search relating to adding this behaviour to a personal extension just leads me to one of a million 'how to add a live bookmark in firefox'!!

    So could anyone please give the very very new guy a pointer in the right direction. Just a starting point would be perfect,

    Many thanks

    Hey,

    I've been trying to do something similar to this. I've been reading about parsing RSS with JavaScript and found this:

    Between this and a little creativity, you should be able to do it.
    I'll post if I ever finish my project.

    Good luck,
