I used to have 'live bookmarks' set up in Firefox linking to the audio/video forums.

After recently reinstalling, I can't for the life of me remember where I found the info on how to do it - I'm sure it's on here somewhere, possibly to do with RSS feeds.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Yep, seen & tried that but I just get a text listing as follows;

Now, I have had this working with Firefox before the reinstall so I'm puzzled as to what I'm doing/not doing now.

I've just figured it out.

In Firefox, I need to go to Bookmarks, Manage Bookmarks, File, New Livemark and create it there.

I was trying to just use a standard bookmark.

Thanks everyone, works fine now.

hehe. I just tried it out and it worked fine for me and I was going to post back about it, but I guess you figured it out.
