Troubleshooting:

  3. Click OK.
  4. Try to subscribe again.

– I don’t see the Bookmarks Toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is found under the “Navigation Bar Toolbar” (where the url is found). If you don’t see the RSS Feed Symbol with the title of the feed ( , , or ), then follow the following instructions.

  1. Go to View -> Toolbar
  2. Make sure “Bookmarks Toolbar” is checked.
  3. If it isn’t, then click on it and the “Bookmarks Toolbar” should appear under the “Navigation Bar Toolbar”.
