User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4

Open the Feed as in the URL. (I will attach a testcase soon).

Nothing is displayed -> because the Feed is broken.

We should offer an error message.
We already do this, but with a little mistake.
Below I post something from the page preview (it's from the German Firefox)
<div id="feedError" style="display: none;" dir="ltr">
      <h1>Fehler beim Verarbeiten des Feeds</h1>
      <p>Beim verarbeiten des Feeds ist ein Fehler in der Anwendung aufgetreten. Sie können den Feed trotzdem abonnieren, Falls Sie wissen, was er ist. Der Fehler lautet:</p>
      <p id="errorCode"/>
    </div>

I think we should drop style="display: none;", because this prevents showing the error message.

Reproducible: Always




Occurs also on trunk.
