Default Google CHROME and Missing RSS Pages

If you get a bunch of coded programming on your screen when you are expecting an RSS listing:

How to view an RSS feed in Google Chrome

In order to view an RSS feed in Google's Chrome browser it is necessary to add the RSS Chrome Extension.

This is a very simple process and the steps are as follows:

In your Chrome browser open https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/rss?hl=en-US
Enter 'RSS Feed Reader' in the search box (top left)
Press your 'Enter' key
In the results click the '+ Add to Chrome' button next to 'RSS Feed Reader'
Chrome will now display RSS feeds.

Default eBay RSS Feeds Not Working

I have no idea if the problem is the computers, my ISP, eBay, or what. I do use Firefox. None of the RSS feeds are rendering properly. This is an example of what I see

There are accessories that can be added to Your Browser that will bring in RSS feeds. Not all web browsers are alike!

Internet Explorer does work without modification.

It was working before 12/15/18. Maybe one of the updates caused it. Idk.

I STRICTLY use Firefox. It's bad enough i have to use Windblows, so I don't use Internet Exploder. Between MS and G "spying" on people, I won't use Chrome, either. Just the way I am, when it comes to p.i. security.

You don't "have to use windows". Ever heard of Red Hat but it costs money like windows.
But CentOS is a version that is FREE.

And there's always apple.

Too old to learn a new OS. And the only apples I want are in pies.

Ah, I see. It's a FF problem. No big deal, I didn't really use it anyway. Since I don't have any other RSS feeds to worry about, I'll just let it be.

Thanks, Doug
