Firefox 2.0 as part of it's spiffy new RSS work allows users to subscribe to a feed with an application of their choice. It has a list with some default choices, and Thunderbird should be part of it when installed.

Agreed.

Disagreed ;)

Fx 2 doesn't have a list of local apps, just a list of web apps, and (depending on the platform) maybe the system default reader. There's nothing that Tb needs to do or can do that it doesn't already do, that isn't covered by the confused tangle of bugs covering how the two don't agree about what the commandline ought to look like.

For the record: When I filed this bug, Thunderbird was not showing in Firefox's list of feed readers. Today (trunk Fx, trunk Tb), it does (Tb has always been my default feed reader). So something in either Fx or Tb has changed to make this work better than it was..
