User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: version 1.0.2 (20050317) Thunderbird fails to display multiple entries that reference the same url in the aforementioned Atom Feed. The feed in question was generated by the Macromedia Contribute Publishing Services server to allow users to recieve notifications when updates are made to a website. The feed uses the link tag to indicate which page was updated e.g. <link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://www.swarthmore.edu/academics/honors/handbook/02-Basics.html"/> Taking a look around my profile it seemd like feeditems.rdf uses the url rather than the entrie's id to differentiate between entries and therefore ignoring other entries with the same url e.g. <RDF:Description RDF:about="http://www.swarthmore.edu/academics/honors/handbook/02-Basics.html" fz:stored="true" fz:valid="true"> That's my best guess anyway. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Subscribe to the feed Actual Results: 4 entries are displayed Expected Results: 7 entries should be displayed (This is how many I see using Firefox's Live bookmarks)
Summary: Thunderbird does not display RSS feed entries that reference th same url → Thunderbird ignores RSS feed entries that reference the same url as a previous feed
There have been several fixes to RSS feed parsing since the 1.0 trunk was branched off. The supplied URL works as a feed with TB 1.0+0515, Win2K. Get a nightly trunk build, or wait for TB 1.1 to be released, to take advantage of these fixes.

I just tried version 1.0+ (20050522) and the problem still exists. The URL works as a feed BUT only 4 entries show up when in fact there are 7 entries in the feed. That is the problem.

Confirming... with linux 20050521 build. The feed items with same url only show up once.

Ever confirmed: true
(In reply to comment #1) > There have been several fixes to RSS feed parsing since the 1.0 trunk was > branched off. This one isn't fixed and is really serious. I suggest making it a blocker for 1.1. I can see the changes that need to be made in FeedItem.js to fix the problem moving forward, but there will probably be migration issues unless we match previously stored items with message-ids in the mbox.
The forumzilla extension now handles this. See http://www.melez.com/mykzilla/2005/11/indexing-items-by-id-rather-than-url.html
maybe we can tackle this for thunderbird 2.0 if we can bribe Robert. Sounds like we might be able to crib some stuff from forumzilla.

Is this still on the radar for 2.0? I also encounter this bug while using RSS feeds for tracking wiki changes in our local Trac (http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/) installation.
As we can see, 2 years and nothing was done regarding this bug, in the meantime 2 other people plus me, issued the same bug. Robert suggested to make it a blocker for TB 1.1... Scott suggested to tack it for TB 2.0... We have got TB 2.0 released, and the bug is still open, that's why I think there is a need to fix it sooner than later :)
I agree with Piotr.

This might be caused by the problem cited in bug #754704.
(In reply to David E. Ross from comment #15) > This might be caused by the problem cited in bug #754704. potential problem - it's not clear anyone watching this bug still sees it.
