When using Apple's iweb to create web content, there is an RSS plugin. This plugin draws RSS content into the web page, and allows scrolling. The content appears to be from reader.mac.com. On the latest Firefox (4.0b7), this capability fails and a large "RSS" symbol appears where the feed should be located. All other regular and beta browsers (e.g., Chrome) do not exhibit any problems in showing the RSS feed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.cise.ufl.edu/~fishwick
2. note that the 2 RSS feeds do not display
3. Alternatively, create your own RSS plugin using Mac's iweb and try to view on Firefox Beta.
Actual Results:  
RSS feed is not displayed

Expected Results:  
RSS feed should be displayed

I am unsure if the behavior below indicates the same bug, but when I use Google Analytics on either of my 2 blogs, and I open the Dashboard to the pull down next to the month (e.g. November 23, 2010 -- Dec 23, 2010), the pull down is supposed to contain a set of calendars. On Firefox Beta 8, it is completely empty. To verify, use the browser and go to Google Analytics. Try to open the begin and end dates in the Analytics dashboard and you should see a blank sub-window.
