If you really want to bring RSS icon back into Address Bar in Firefox 4. You need install this extension and your RSS Icon will back. This is what RSS Icon Developer has said

Specifically, when a page contains link tags in it’s header with a type of application/atom+xml or application/rss+xml it places the orange RSS icon into the right side of the location bar (a.k.a. urlbar, awesomebar).

If one and only one feed is detected, then clicking on the icon invokes your feed-handler (see about:config browser.feeds.handler). If multiple feeds are detected, it popups up a little menu to allow you to select which feed to add.
