Mozilla says that when it will remove feed support and Live Bookmarks from Firefox, the browser will export the user's RSS/Atom feeds as an OPML file that users can later import into a specialized desktop or web-based feed reader.

The Mozilla team is already set in its decision and has even drafted a blog post for the official announcement.
