Tired of seeing this every time you use Firefox's built-in RSS handling to add a site's feed to your Google Reader account?
Me too, so I figured out a way to get rid of it. Now I'll show you how too.
Simply type 'about:config' into your url bar, and as soon as all that scary-looking stuff loads, scroll down until you see 'browser.contentHandlers.types.2.uri', and then double click it.
A dialog will pop up asking for a uri, and will be pre-filled with 'http://fusion.google.com/add?feedurl=%s'.
Simply replace it with 'http://google.com/reader/preview/*/feed/%s' then restart Firefox.
Next time you click on an RSS feed, you'll see a preview of it in Google Reader, completely bypassing the option to add it to your Google homepage.
Note: You'll need to actually click the 'subscribe' button in the preview window to subscribe, so the sum total of clicks will be the same, they just won't be dealing with Google's bad UI decision. Besides, it's nice to see the contents of the feed before committing to it. I routinely change my mind if a feed is only a partial-text feed.
