Firefox doesn't do anything clever to "pick up" RSS feeds, it just
looks for RSS links in the HTML such as this one from gmail

<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Gmail Atom
Feed" href="feed/atom" />

It's up to whoever runs the site to ensure that these links are
present if they want the RSS logo to appear in the navbar.
