This extension has a popup that will give you the option to select from feeds on a page natively, or with RSS-bridge configured to your liking. It optionally integrates with tt-rss to include a 'subscribe' link. RSS-Bridges current supported are twitter, instagram, and youtube.

- Click on the add-on icon while on a website to display all known RSS feeds for that site. Feeds are displayed as hyper links, you can copy link location if needed.
- Known RSS feeds are one of the following: Feeds included in a link element on the page or generated RSS-bridge feeds for supported websites.
- Configure an RSS-bridge instance in options. You can search online for public instances, or host your own.
- Optionally, you can configure a tt-rss instance, and next to a feed link there is another link to redirect to a subscribe menu in tt-rss. You may do the same with miniflux as well.

- On the page for a youtube video, clicking the addon icon will bring up the feeds for the channel with RSS-bridge and the native youtube feed. If the video is in a current playlist, it will also bring up the feeds for the playlist.

Risk impact

RSS feed helper requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install RSS feed helper if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

RSS feed helper is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
