1) default readers (my yahoo,bloglines,google) are not displayed in drop down menu.
2) "always...." text is missing.
3) reader's favicon is missing. [additional]
Subscribing to a feed works if you have Firefox set to skip the preview, so it's really only the preview page that's broken.

Summary: RSS feed subscription is broken → RSS feed preview page is broken
With a fresh profile using today's build I cannot add a feed at all from foxnews.com. When I check the checkbox then any subsequent visits to other pages allow me to add the feeds from those pages. So the initial feedback the user gets is that RSS may be broken.

Confirmed, severity should really be Blocker for this one

Setting as blocker since this is stopping us from testing.
Severity: major → blocker
Not just Vista, it's broken on my Linux builds as well.
I can confirm.
Have a problem with this on Linux too.

I get reader favicons working on Mac, but in my XP SP2 VM, I don't see them until I mouse through the dropdown select list; it appears that it doesn't build them until selection, which is weird.

Pal, can you file a spin-off bug?

Mano, why did you put the mutation listener back in to menulist here?

Because addBroadcastListenerFor doesn't work in non-XUL documents (like the feed preview page).
