when i picked up the latest update to firefox a few of my rss live bookmarks have stopped working
and example is http://kaitou-fansubs.com/?feed=rss2
this feed works when you navigate to to but wont display as a live bookmark
as it is only some sites then i don't think its just a firefox issue however as the issues only occurred after the update then i think something changed with firefox that has triggered the incompatibility
Solved! Go to Solution.
A possible cause is a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.
Please reply if that helped . Thanks !
Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
Note that your System Details List shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize some prefs on each start of Firefox.
The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created it, so normally it wouldn't be there. you can check its content with a plain text editor if you didn't create this file yourself.
The user.js file is read each time you start Firefox and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.
