I use the Firefox add-on 'Brief'
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4578/

It works with the existing Firefox bookmark structure that Live
Bookmarks uses, so I usually add new feeds using Live Bookmarks but then
read them with Brief.

Brief can be a bit slow to load, but that may be because I have over 200
feeds, and receive some 10 items per feed...

There may also be a problem when running the 'HTTPS everywhere' add-on,
but I haven't fully diagnosed that yet.
