Seen while testing Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008051202 Firefox/3.0.

STR:
1. Load a new profile to test RC1
2. Import some data from Safari.

I see this error in the console: Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIChannel.contentType]"  nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///Users/marcia/Desktop/RC1%20candidate/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/components/FeedProcessor.js :: FP_onStartRequest :: line 1440"  data: no]
Source File: file:///Users/marcia/Desktop/RC1%20candidate/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/components/FeedProcessor.js
Line: 1440
I got the same error in the console on first launch using a new profile, no migration, but while I had no internet connection. 
Confirmed on XP too, i saw this when i was out of range from wlan connections and have no internet connection

On XP it'S this line which throws the exception:

channel.contentType = "application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.feed";
I was person who developed Comment #3 in Vista. Interested to notice Gavin Sharp's patch. I cannot use Firefox in Vista at present, because it seems best to uninstall it, after it always does as described. I wonder if patch could get it installed?

Occured on my PC too.

Any update on this bug so far? Gavin, what happened with the patch you attached half a year ago? Is it something we can use?

It likely fixes the bug. Confirmation would be useful, I don't think I've tested it. Someone taking this bug would be even better!
While running  Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20090128 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre I am still seeing this error. But as Gavin notes in Comment 12, an owner is needed.

Robert, could this be a possible fix for the problem? It would be nice when we can eliminate the clutter from the Error Console.
