    Firefox Live Bookmarks

    Hi all,

    Today I noticed that Firefox shows a directly lickable RSS logo in the address bar (FF 2.0) when it knows the site or page you're browsing has a feed available.

    Eg: http://www.plugim.com/

    But I can't work out how Firefox knows there is a feed.
    Eg: on this page/site that also has a feed available the icon does not appear.

    Does anybody know what factor decides whether the icon appears?

    If you look in the head of the first site you linked to:

    Code:
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="http://www.plugim.com/rss2/"/>
    That is how it knows there is a feed there.
