Mozilla and RSS feeds

Hi all
Anyone else use mozilla as a news reader?
I'm just wondering if anyone makes use of the live bookmarks feature (where the titles are displayed in the bookmarks menu)?:

Only reason I ask is that I maintain a rss feed on someones site for them. Now when the & character is inserted it breaks it. When I use & instead it's fine in all news readers except live bookmarks - every other story will show except the story with the html code &.
Anyone come across this before? - IF you did, how did you get around it? Is this a mozilla bug?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I highly recommend https://www.newsblur.com/ - I use it with Chrome, but  am certain it will work with Firefox. Best RSS reader I've come across (+ these past few months tried many!)

@jelv Thanks for info on FeedDemon - the pro version s now free. Like it a lot, better than Newsblur that I suggested as a stand alone program with restrictions. Many thanks

After I posted I went to the website and found out about the Pro version so I've upgraded.

AOL Reader (Beta) looks quite nice also, but has no extension for Chrome yet. I like the interface, so am giving it a try (http://reader.aol.com/)
