  • Please don't make changes to your question in a way that the original meaning is changed. Consider asking a new question, if you experience new/different problems, e.g. that you're having problems with a certain REST endpoint (instead of having problems with Firefox).

I guess Firefox treated the XML returned by the REST API like an atom feed.

RESTClient is a nice Firefox plugin you can use for interacting with SharePoint's REST API.
