Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

With the release of KDE 4.3.1 Akregator will be able to import Feeds from Firefox, since concerning bugs are fixed. Thus for a better integration of Firefox into KDE, Firefox should set Akregator as the default feedreader.

Why ? You can already choose any external RSS treader that you like. The ones currently in the list (Bloglines, My Yahoo and Google) are not external readers, but websites.

Why? Because it will be easier to handle for the average user. For power users it may be easy. But for the average user not. I help a lot of my friends with their Linux installation and most of them wont be able to find the location of their feedreader. A list of apps would help.

Right now, we don't do anything KDE specific, but if we build a firefox-kde-support package at some point, this might not be a bad idea. Let's also see what upstream does with this.

There are some other things which I have tagged Firefox-KDE-integration and more to think about which would be worthy for such a firefox-kde-support.

Is it possible to import the new patch for kde firefox integration from opensuse?

I think it is a great solution.

Moving this bug to the RSS component.
