unable to load feeds.php with Firefox

Does the rss feed supposed to work with Firefox Live Bookmark?
It shows me nothing. I have other subscriptions with other websites that work fine (they are xml based).
Thank you

Re: unable to load feeds.php with Firefox

The problem might be in the CONTENT-TYPE of the RSS feeds. This has been a general disaster for XML files over HTTP. Different browsers require different content type for the XML files to be valid. I decided to use "text/xml" as it is most commonly used and is supported by most of the browsers and feed-readers. I tested in Opera and IE, it works perfectly.

Try searching Firefox forums, or search Google. I'm sure that many people came across the same issue and there must be a simply workaround (like adding a new content-type in Firefox).

Re: unable to load feeds.php with Firefox

Thanks for your response. I searched a lot and find nothing pertinent sad
So I decided to test myself by comparing your xml file with others feeds that work for me. And I found what firefox doesn't like big_smile
Each item MUST have a non empty node link. I replaced all <link></link> by <link>http://den4b.com/</link> and it works

        <item>
            <title>ReNamer 5.10</title>
            <link>http://den4b.com/</link>
            <description>Yet another update......</description>

        </item>

Could you add these changes to your xml file?
Thank you
