Internet Explorer has this option:

Option for Feed reading view

When unclicked clicked ATOM feeds will show as raw xml.

How can I do the same thing in Firefox?

Try this: Feed Proxy.

It allows you to see the raw feed source.

Thank you for your answer. However, I will need to have my feed be an authenticated feed. Feed Proxy does not allow that. (Also, I was hoping that now that firefox 5 is out that this limitation has been "fixed".) – Vaccano Jul 22 '11 at 18:43

Alas, this does not give you the xml view. It just shows how to open (or not open in this case) a webfeed in another application. I guess I can just have firefox open in IE, but that seems kind of lame. – Vaccano Jul 22 '11 at 19:31
