found using 2005021006-trunk tbird bits. when I first add an RSS feed, it doesn't initially appear in the RSS Subscriptions dialog. I didn't see and JS console messages, though. 1. for the RSS account, click "manage subscriptions" from Account Central. 2. click Add Feed button. 3. enter an rss link, eg, http://www.mozilla.org/news.rdf into the Feed URL textfield and click OK. results: that feed isn't displayed (invisible) in the RSS Subscriptions dialog. it does dynamically appear in the folder pane of the mail window. workarounds: - it does appear after I close then reopen the dialog - also, if I hit the down arrow key enough in the dialog, it'll eventually appear.
This seems to work ok for me on Windows. Question where in the list is the new feed folder getting added? at the top, at the bottom, some where in the middle? May just be a tree painting bug if moving the arrow key through the tree selection causes it to suddenly become visible. What happens if you drag a feed to the subscription window, same issue? How about with dragging a feed from one folder to another?
also see this on mac (10.3.8), 2005021004-trunk. I cannot seem to get d'n'd of rss links to work at all (from browser window to subscription dlg).

you have to drop it into a folder container....(FYI) where in the list is the new feed showing up? at the top, bottom or middle?
Created attachment 174000 [details] [diff] [review] fix for the mac I haven't seen sarah's bug on the mac yet. But I did notice that the twisties for folders in the subscription dialog were not always getting re-drawn to represent the open /closed state of the folder. This patch fixes that problem for Mac OS X.
(In reply to comment #3) > you have to drop it into a folder container....(FYI) aha! thanks, that does work. > where in the list is the new feed showing up? at the top, bottom or middle? if it's the first feed added, it's always at the top. subsequent feeds appear to be added in alphabetic order, so their position will vary depending on their title. yeah, I think I see what you mean in comment 4. did you also see the extra rss icons being drawn for each added feed? I'll attach a screenshot.
Created attachment 174071 [details] illustrates the twisty issue in comment 4, plus the extra feed icons appended to the list
I fixed the extra empty feed line being added with the patch listed above. It should have been in the 2/11 builds.
How is this looking with today's build Sarah?
discussed with Scott: will show him what I see next time we're both in the office.
