User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a7pre) Gecko/2007072409 Minefield/3.0a7pre Build Identifier: Thunderbird 220.127.116.11 I can't edit the properties for some of the feeds I've subscribed to in Thunderbird. This does not happen for all of the feeds, but for those that it does, it happens consistently. I've noticed this in Thunderbird 18.104.22.168, and it's still there in 22.214.171.124. I have noticed the following error in Error Console: Error: currentFolder has no properties Source File: chrome://messenger-newsblog/content/feed-subscriptions.js Line: 621 The offending line is marked in the URL for this bug. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right click on my feeds folder account, and choose "Subscribe...". 2. Expand a feed under Slashdot (for which the problem happens) and select it. 3. Click "Edit". Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: The feed properties edit dialog should open.
Created attachment 273551 [details] feeds.rdf from the tested profile OK, this seems to be related to bug 388919. Here is the feeds.rdf file from the profile I have seen this bug in. Checkout the entry for the slashdot feed I saw this bug on: <RDF:Description RDF:about="http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdotLinux" dc:title="Slashdot: Linux" NS1:link="http://linux.slashdot.org/" /> instead of what it should possibly look like: <fz:feed RDF:about="http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdotLinux" dc:identifier="http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdotLinux" fz:quickMode="true" dc:title="Slashdot: Linux" NS1:link="http://linux.slashdot.org/"> <fz:destFolder RDF:resource="mailbox://nobody@News%20%26%20Blogs-2/ce6e393b"/> </fz:feed>
Changing the RDF:Description element to the fz:feed element manually in the feeds.rdf file (as noted in comment 1) fixes the problem mentioned in comment 0. Marking this bug dependent on bug 388919.
