So I found out that aside from the live bookmarks on Firefox, I can have email notifications via Gmail using a RSS feed that they provide. I decided to install an Atom compatible aggregator called Sage which worked well with my Firefox. My other feeds, including my own, look good. It also automatically detects feeds on the site I'm on and lists them so I would be able to add them easily. Now I can also see my new messages on Sage as well. Gmail also has a notifier available although I decided not to download and use it. Wow, I'm loving this! Gmail and Firefox rock!
