Corrupted or missing .msf causes failure in rss feed updating, other errors
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0 Build Identifier: 3.0a2pre (2008060203) and branch as well if a .msf file is corrupted (or missing) Tb will rebuild it upon folder selection, even displaying a statusbar message. Tb is able to detect that a .msf file needs to be rebuilt. however, it does not do so *unless* a folder is selected, despite various accesses that need the .msf file. rss is one. feeds will not update unless a .msf file is rebuilt or in a correct state. neither will explicit actions such as rt click highlighting a folder for Get Messages, nothing happens. on folder selection/rebuild, Get Messages works again. another manifestation is this error thrown on folder hover, to get tooltips: Error: Component returned failure code: 0x80550005 [nsIMsgFolder.getMsgDatabase] = <unknown> Source file: chrome://messenger/content/mailWidgets.xml Line: 2061 there may be other problems resulting from this. the reason for .msf corruption isn't the point (i've had hard OS crashes, on a shared win/linux profile folder, for instance). testcase: simply remove a running Tb rss folder's .msf file and hover on the folder, or try to Get Messages. Reproducible: Always

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:9.0) Gecko/20111115 Thunderbird/9.0 I see this issue in my current Thunderbird session, but the feeditems.rdf file has been rebuilt (= creation date) at a moment while I was not using Thunderbird. The feeds.rdf has been rebuilt later (maybe when I opened the subscriptions dialog).
well, i went and removed feeds dependency on the msgDdatabase .msf (switched to panacea) in Bug 705504 so this isn't going to stop feeds anymore.
