NTT Resonant has discontinued their own RSS reader service. It has already been removed from the vanilla Firefox builds. (Bug 605653)

The patch for distribution.ini is attached. The browser.contentHandlers.* prefs, which has been set to make the "goo RSS Reader" first, are no longer required.

Please use this for Firefox 6+. Thanks!

Nope, Bug 649888.
Hi Kev, the Firefox 8 release is approaching. Could you take this?
Kev, ping...?
Seems like Kev is busy, so I'll manually edit the ini file and repack the exe/dmg as before, for the meantime.

Not so much busy as overwhelmed sometimes by bugmail. All readers are removed by the patch, is this intended behaviour?
Yes, by removing the designation, the order and listing of the feed readers will be the same as the vanilla Firefox.
So I've manually repacked and signed the Firefox 8.0 and 8.0.1 builds.
Please apply my patch to the upcoming Firefox 9 release. Thanks!
Kev: could you review and land my patch when you get a chance?
We are manually repacking and signing the greengoo builds still.

(I'm good with the changes, and Tomcat should be able to add this back into the release workflow so you don't have to do it every time).

can we get this into the hg repro ? (don't think i have checkin rights or so - and never did before).

Also Kohei, during the review tests i found also Bug 726948, could you take a look? thanks!
Confirmed: Firefox 10.0.2 was built with the updated distribution.ini. Thank you!
