It has support for the RSS feeds. So, I have bookmarked both the Slashdot RSS, and the OSNews RDF: http://slashdot.org/ http://www.osnews.com/ (go there and subscribe to their RSS/RDF feeds) So, after subscribing, the OSNews feeds are showing with the wrong order, while the Slashdot's are correct. For example, the first story showing on the osnews front page is showing 15th on the firefox RDF feed, while the 15th news story shows as first. In other words, Firefox renders the osnews RDF news with the WRONG order. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load the osnews web page 2. Subscribe to the osnews RDF 3. See that the RDF news have the wrong order, while this doesn't happen with RSS Feeds. Actual Results: Wrong order Expected Results: Right order of news.
confirmed in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Firefox/0.10 The RSS feed <http://www.osnews.com//files/recent.rdf> shows the same order as the main page at <http://www.osnews.com/index.php>, but the menu shows them in the opposite order. The RSS feed doesn't contain a 'rdf:Seq' entry that determines the order. The feed itself is valid, see <http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http://www.osnews.com//files/recent.rdf> See also bug 252367.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
>The RSS feed doesn't contain a 'rdf:Seq' entry that determines the order. If that tag doesn't exist, Firefox should render the news in the order they existin inside the RDF file.
Update: Please note that I have changed the OSNews RDF feed to RSS and so now Firefox works as expected. However, other sites still have the problem: www.gnomefiles.org www.nmcx.com jsut to name a few. So please, just because I fixed the problem for OSNews, this bug REMAINS a bug of firefox! Please fix before 1.0. Thanks!
Firefox 3 / Places gets this right.

That's because osnews switched to RSS, not because Firefox fixed its RDF bug.
