Subscribe to feeds with Google Reader

Rowan Simpson just linked to this article which removes the extra step when adding feeds to Google Reader from within Firefox. Usually you’re presented with a choice to subscribe to the feed with either Google Homepage or Google Reader. If you only ever use Google Reader, this step is unnecessary and can be removed by following these instructions:

Type about:config in the address bar, and change the following two entries as follows:

browser.contentHandlers.types.2.title = Google Reader
browser.contentHandlers.types.2.uri = http://www.google.com/reader/view/feed/%s
