Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_5) AppleWebKit/536.26.17 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0.2 Safari/536.26.17

Steps to reproduce:

clicked on a live bookmark


Actual results:

saw feed item titles


Expected results:

The current live bookmark UI displays only titles of feed items, not
description text embedded within feed. RSS description field may
feature thresholded teaser text, or full content, possibly encoded as
markup and including images. A couple of cases for this: (1) User may
want to preview teaser content to help decide whether to click
through. (2) Some feeds may feature relevant description content
unrelated to click-thru link. E.g., if subscribed to a delicious feed,
the author of the delicious bookmark may include relevant annotation
text, such as "interesting article on..."  (Hypothetical example;
delicious used to include annotations in description field, but
apparently doesn't any more. See digg & reddit for other examples of
aggregation services.  Note the potentially confusing inconsistencies
with how each feed publisher handles descriptions.)
User Agent 	Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0
Build ID 	20160112030227

Tested on MacOS version 10.7.5 with the Nightly 46.0a1 build. I can't reproduce the problem. Please retest this issue with the latest version of Firefox (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/). If you still reproduce the problem, please provide links to the websites with problems added to the live bookmarks.

Thank you.
