I’ve been using FeedDemon as my aggregator lately. Unfortunately it uses IE as the internal browser so I was forced to open up all pages in an external instance of Mozilla Firebird. This works fairly well but it is a bit annoying.
However, today I managed to patch FeedDemon to use Adam Lock’s Mozilla ActiveX Control 1.5. This was really easy.
- Download Mozilla ActiveX Control 1.5 and install it. I guess one could use the one packaged with Mozilla Firebird but this one did not work out of the box.
- Download a small program called IEPatcher. I found this from a different site that has some good information.
- Run the IEPatcher.exe and select the FeedDemon directory and patch the FeedDemon.exe file
- This creates a file called moz_FeedDemon.exe. Run this and update all your shortcuts to point to this exe file instead.
