I (used to) have a number of bookmarked RSS feeds. Today after updating to the latest nightly, they were turned into empty directories. Furthermore, I can't add any new RSS feeds (when viewing a feed, the "subscribe now" button does nothing).
It appears that the "subscribe now" button not working is e10s-related. However, even after viewing a feed in a non-e10s window and successfully clicking "subscribe now", the feed doesn't appear anywhere in my bookmarks.
I see the same, it's not e10s related. Looks like a regression in bookmarks, I will investigate it later.

This seems to be only fixed on Mac OS X, using latest Nightly, build ID: 20150503030209. On Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit and Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit, the user can now view the existing feeds but it's unable to add new ones. After clicking "subscribe now", nothing happens and the following console errors are thrown: NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE: Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIPrefBranch.setCharPref] FeedWriter.js:1275:0

let me clarify the title.
Summary: rss feed functionality is broken → rss feed appear as empty folders
Summary: rss feed appear as empty folders → rss feeds appear as empty folders
note that I currently cannot find an explicit bug about subscribe to feed being broken on e10s, the bugs above look like minor downsides. Could be bug 1109714, so I'd suggest to ask there and eventually file a separate bug if needed.
Yup, that indeed seems to be bug 1109714, as the subscribe button is not working on e10s and the UI will be changed. Thanks for clarifying this!
