As a developer I want to view the raw RSS feeds from my application.

But Firefox keeps taking me to a Google page and wants me to tell whether I would like to subscribe in Google Reader or Google IG

I'm desperately seeking the button labeled "just let me view the raw RSS feed" button.

Very annoying behaviour. And "View Source" lets me view source on the actual google page.

Any suggestions on how to bypass this feature/annoyance in Firefox?

PS. I am aware that I probably once upon a time accepted a setting. But there is absolutely no clue on how I disable that setting again -- even though it's probably my own fault.

As an example of this, the current page here has an RSS feed. But the link to it becomes… when I click on it. – Jesper Rønn-Jensen Dec 11 '09 at 15:06

Goto Tools-> Options -> Applications. In the search box, type 'Web feed' and change it from 'Use Google` to Preview in Firefox.

Thanks a lot ! I knew it was easy -- just couldn't figure out where to change it :) – Jesper Rønn-Jensen Dec 11 '09 at 15:18

I have searched in that field, but "RSS" returned no results... – Palimondo Apr 6 '12 at 14:26
@Palimondo it's "feed" or "web feed", not "RSS" – Sathya Apr 7 '12 at 6:43
@Sathya Now I know, thanks to your answer. I was just explaining how I've missed it, even when searching in the right place ;-) – Palimondo Apr 7 '12 at 10:47
