If the RSS feed is requested, it is downloaded again. The first download does not appear to be anything other than a redundant request. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit a page with a RSS feed declared for auto discovery Actual Results: RSS feed is downloaded Expected Results: Icon for RSS feed should be displayed, but RSS feed should only be downloaded if requested.
WFM: according to LiveHTTPHeaders, /topics/?type=rss isn't requested unless and until I click the icon in the addressbar. Do you, by any chance, have any extensions installed, or any nosy programs like Google Desktop that think they should poke their nose into everything you do?
Yep... I just disabled extensions one-by-one to figure out which one was causing the feed to be pulled. The result, Google Firefox Toolbar. Thanks Phil!
