User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041010 Firefox/0.10 Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird version 0.8 (20040913) The feed provided by <http://www.drobe.co.uk/rss.php> does not validate so clearly I'm going to get on to the owners to fix it. However the Thunderbird RSS feed manager gets stuck trying to parse it when I try to add it. Clearly it should not do this, rather it should kick it out telling the user that it's an invalid feed. The sticking is not terminal, the manager can be exited raising a query telling you that a feed is being processed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. "Manage subscriptions" 2. "Add" 3. Enter URL 4. Progress message goes to "Verifying the feed..." and the bar goes to 100% where it sticks. 5. Click "OK" or close window 6. Answer "Yes" to "Are you sure you wish to cancel subscribing to the current feed" Actual Results: I didn't get the feed subscribed and I had to kill the manager and re-open it to subscribe to a different feed. Expected Results: Produced an error stating that the feed is not valid RSS and allowed different feeds to be added.
I can vouch for this bug too.
