ack yes indeed this bug sucks arse! Adding new feeds doesnt work either, just hangs around trying to verify the feed until the cows come home... :(

More information on my problem - I brought up the javascript console and I saw
an error in parsing feeditems.rdf, line 1.

I couldn't load feeditems.rdf in a text editor. Just garbage characters. So I
backed up my feeds, shut down Thunderbird, deleted feeditems.rdf and restarted.

The RSS feeds came in instantly. A new feeditems.rdf was created and was
well-formed XML.

So my problem is fixed. I don't know if this information helps toward figuring
out the original problem.

Hi:
Thanks for the comment. That's really interesting because it mirrors the way you fix a corrupt in box by deleting the index file. In this case you deleted the feeditems.rdf and Thunderbird restored it. Thanks for the great tip.

What I'm seeing is a pair of errors:
-----------------
Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIRDFService.GetDataSourceBlocking]" nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://messenger-newsblog/content/utils.js :: getItemsDS :: line 219" data: no]
Source File: chrome://messenger-newsblog/content/utils.js
Line: 219

---------------

Error: not well-formed
Source File: file:////Application%20Data/Thunderbird/Profiles/u1gnyuqu.default/Mail/News%20&%20Blogs/feeditems.rdf
Line: 5, Column: 34
Source Code:
urn:forumzilla:stored="true"---------------------------------^


When I try to use a broser to the document definition (that is being loaded by the utils.js), the Document definition isn't found (404 error). I expect the RDF files aren't parsing as a result.

Thanks a bunch! I'm running Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 and haven't used my News and Blog reader in over a year, because it suddenly stopped downloading new messages and I was too lazy to fix the problem.

I closed Thunderbird, deleted the feeditems.rdf file, restarted, and it regenerated a new file. Everything now works great.

Thanks Again

Ah yes thanks deleting the file "feeditems.rdf" worked a treat. Just didn't know where to find the file at first.

Tim

Thanks for the tip, mr. Stone!

I did a complete search for feeditems.rdf and could not locate it. Any chance that it could be named something else in the latest version of the software?
