Until now I've only used Thunderbird (0.9) for RSS feeds.  I've decided to add a
POP3 email account, but made a mistake in the address, so it was invalid.  I
then tried to view RSS feeds, only to discover that clicking on an article won't
mark it as "read".  Double-clicking on an article brings up a blank window.  The
preview window is always blank.

I uninstalled Thunderbird 0.9 and reinstalled, and the problem still exists. 
The only way to fix it was to make a new profile, which was a huge hassle due to
all the feeds I have.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an email account with a bad POP3 server
2. Try to view RSS feeds
