Confirmed. 2.13.1 works properly. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20121011 Firefox/16.0 SeaMonkey/2.13.1 Build identifier: 20121011080919 By the time we reach here we're broken: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 SeaMonkey/2.14a1 Build identifier: 20120726003003 In that case, no page actually loads. It shows "done", but the page is entirely gray, & Page Info shows it to be about:blank. Error Console shows: Error: Services.scriptSecurityManager.getCodebasePrincipal is not a function Source File: resource:///components/nsAbout.js Line: 43 I did see this, once: Error: Search service falling back to synchronous initialization at SRCH_SVC__ensureInitialized@resource:///components/nsSearchService.js:2498 @resource:///components/nsSearchService.js:3468 @chrome://communicator/content/nsContextMenu.js:1284 @chrome://communicator/content/nsContextMenu.js:45 nsContextMenu@chrome://communicator/content/nsContextMenu.js:26 onpopupshowing@chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul:1 Source File: resource:///components/nsSearchService.js Line: 2499 A later build is different again, actually loading the page, though not displaying its data, & no Error Console message: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0 SeaMonkey/2.14a1 Build identifier: 20120814003006 (these are builds I had on hand, so can't necessarily give a precise regression range)

Well, there appear to be a number of options: 1. Restore nsAboutFeeds.js and add the custom principal there 2. Always add the custom principal in nsAbout.js (I tried this and I couldn't get anything to break) 3. Add a special case for about:feeds in nsAbout.js 4. Add a special case for about:feeds in nsAbout.js BUT hide it under its own flag
5. Add the custom principal in FeedConverter.js
