Linking "Read Rss Feeds" icon to NewsFox

I can access NewsFox by right clicking "Read Mail" icon and then clicking menu. But I'd like to access it directly from orange "Read Rss Feeds" icon.

Is there any easy way? I'm probably missing something right under my nose.

Replace mail.kmm with newsfox.kmm found in K-Meleon 1.6x
or edit mail.kmm with notepad.

Only remember that the RSS macro got rather complicated some versions ago... So just a quick note about the "usual" method to hide/unhide some default buttons. Hopefully works for this button too but not sure:
Edit > Configuration > Toolbars

That opens the file toolbars.cfg
It seems the Mail bar does contain also a RSS button which is only hidden
=> remove the comment signs # from it, then restart... Does it work??

Of course it's just as well possible to change menus and buttons in macro files (*.kmm) directly, that's what the previous poster suggested. Worth trying too...

Thanks guys for both your replies. I already have the button visible so what I did was download the older K-Meleon and simply added the file. I wanted to keep "mail" functional so left it, instead of replacing it.

With the added file, I did this edit:

*****

NewsFox{
# For K-Meleon 1.5 and newer
macroinfo=_("Open NewsFox for reading news feeds"); &NewsFox11;
}
NewsFox11{
# For K-Meleon 1.1 (NewsFox 1.0 and newer)
$OpenURL="chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox-overlay.xul"; $ExecMacros="OpenURL_InNew"; &ExecMacros_Frames;
}

*****

changed to

*****

NewsFox{
# For K-Meleon 1.5 and newer
macroinfo=_("Open NewsFox for reading news feeds"); &NewsFox11;
}
NewsFox11{
# For K-Meleon 1.1 (NewsFox 1.0 and newer)
$OpenURL="chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox.xul"; $ExecMacros="OpenURL_InNew"; &ExecMacros_Frames;
}

*****

The key change in the above was

"chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox-overlay.xul"

to

"chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox.xul"

*****

So this is what works for me! Very pleased. Thanks again. I write my solution in detail in case anyone else wants the same modification.
