Important!

The tutorial assumes you have installed a working copy of FireFox version 2 or above.  If you have not installed FireFox, please visit the official FireFox website for further instructions.

OR

Enter http://www.classic-pirates.com/feed into the Address Bar of your FireFox browser. Clicking on the link should open it in a new Browser Tab.

The Classic-Pirates.com Feed will now appear as a Dropdown Menu in the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Note

If your Bookmarks Toolbar already has numerous links, the Classic-Pirates.com News Feed Menu will appear in the Overflow Menu.

To locate the News Feed Menu click upon the >> Button on the far right of the Bookmarks Toolbar.

Adding the Classic-Pirates.com News Feed to the Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar

The Overflow Menu will appear with a list of links that can't fit into the Bookmark Toolbar.  The Classic-Pirates.com News Feed will most likely be placed at the bottom of the Overflow Menu.

Step 3b

Alternatively you can add the RSS Feed to the Bookmarks Pulldown Menu.

Subscribe to Classic-Pirates.com News Feed Step 3b

Click on the Create In Dropdown Combo Box and change the option to Bookmarks Menu or the Bookmarks Folder you want it to appear in.

Now click the Add button.

The Classic-Pirates.com News Feed will appear as a sub-menu in the Bookmarks Menu.

Note

The News Feed sub-menu will probably appear at the very bottom of the Bookmarks Menu, so you may need to drag it to the desired position.

Congratulations!

Every time the Classic-Pirates.com frontpage is updated, the Classic-Pirates.com News Feed menu will be  updated simultaneously.
