as firefox becomes slower and buggier every day, or at least it feels like it to me, i want to switch to safari

importing the bookmarks worked fine but I still have problems with the RSS reading

on safari when I click the rss bookmark of a specific page it loads the websites rss news in a tab.. is there a chance to get it like it's done in firefox where I have my newsfeed in the bookmarks bar and when i click it it pops open and i can decide which ones I want to open in a new tab??

Yes. In the bookmarks window create a folder in your bookmark bars. Inside it put your various RSS feed bookmarks.

I think you misunderstood me.. I don't want various bookmarks in one folder, I want one bookmark to open like a menu where I can select the news I wanna see

just like here:

If I understand, you want the individual stories from a single RSS feed to appear in a drop-down list.

Safari doesn't do it that way but it's similar. If you put a bookmark of the feed (e.g., feed://www.macrumors.com/macrumors.xml) in your Bookmarks Bar it will show you how many new items there are (checking at the time interval you specify in Safari -> Preferences -> RSS).

When you click it you'll get the list of recent items, with the new ones marked, but it will be as a page instead of as a drop-down.

If you control-click it'll open in a new tab, again depending on your preference settings.

So it's still only a couple of clicks to go to a story that interests you.
