That's very interesting. I used to use the live bookmarks rss
reading feature of firefox all the time, until they got rid of it
a couple of years ago. It was great and much easier than internet
explorer. The word built-in, in my opinion means you didn't have
to install anything to use it, and that was how firefox used to
be, unlike chrome.
The reason they took it out of firefox is they didn't want to
spend the money or effort to upgrade and maintain it. As far as
the rest of firefox goes, the bookmarks and menus are still easier
to access than chrome and brafe, I still use it on a lot of
websites with good success. Besides, I don't like all my data
being siphoned off to google.
Now, for rss I just use the feed reader in thunderbird. A pain
to set up, but it works well.

Chrome has not abandoned RSS.?? But unlike IE, Chrome does not
have the RSS feed reader built in.?? You have to install an
extension to read RSS feeds, and it may not be accessible.??
Firefox has never had an accessible RSS feed reader,and is such
a screwed up mess that it is best avoided unless you absolutely
need it to access a particular web site.??

just use Thunderbird for rss.

To be perfectly honest, the only RSS reader I have
ever found to be fully accessible with JAWS is the one

but now useIE mostly as an RSS feed reader.
