Closed Bug 256379 Opened 16 years ago Closed 4 years ago
application/rss+xml should pretty-print instead of downloading
1. Load http://www.squarefree.com/index.rdf Result: Firefox asks me if I want to open or save. Expected: Display the XML tree. (For bonus points, add a "Subscribe" button at the top in Firefox.)
We could either mark this as a duplicate of bug 155730 or make it depend on it. After that bug is fixed we could make this a bug for the special "bonus points" handling for this MIME type and probably for 'application/atom+xml' as well. RDF files should have a 'application/rdf+xml' MIME type by the way, which is supported, see bug 61839.

That IRI is no longer sending the right MIME type to trigger the "bug" described in comment 0. Please test that first before adding a comment. (Removing it for now.)
anyone could upload testcases to bugzilla and set mime types, in the interim i've setup: http://viper.haque.net/~timeless/index.256379-rss http://viper.haque.net/~timeless/index.256379-rdf http://viper.haque.net/~timeless/index.256379-atom

i'd greatly appreciate those feeds being displayed as trees...
Feeds are now displayed in a nice way: not as an XML tree like I suggested when I filed this bug, but as excerpts and links and a subscribe button. I think that's more useful for most users, so I'm marking this as FIXED.

What changed to "fix" this and when? Was it a core change, or just something in the Firefox feed handling code? Do you happen to know Jesse, because I don't see this behavior in Camino trunk builds
it was the ff feed handling code

It works in some cases and not for others. Example that doesn't work: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5149?format=rss Looking at the headers, I don't see what the difference is between this and the examples from timeless. Ciao!

The feed in Comment 14 has the HTML tags visible since they are escaped HTML chars, but are you seeing something else that is broken on the page? Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2a2pre) Gecko/20090902 Namoroka/3.6a2pre (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) ID:20090902052327
Oy. We killed Camino, and SeaMonkey uses Firefox's feed preview. Die, bug.
