GreatNews don't import RSS Feeds from Firefox 3

Postby Elena » Sat Jun 21, 2008 9:48 am

Hi

Did only I have this problem?
I've use Firefox 3 and I have configured that all feed must open with "GreatNews".

But if I click a RSS Feed in Firefox, only "GreatNews" open and nothing import? Why is this only by me?
Thank you for helping me in advance!

I fixed the problem by modifying some code.

In the Firefox install directory \components, this
code in Feedconverter.js starting at line 406
(f.e. c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components\FeedConverter.js):

Code: Select all

if (feedURI.schemeIs("http")) {
        feedURI.scheme = "feed";
        spec = feedURI.spec;
}
else
        spec = "feed:" + spec;


I just commented out it:

Code: Select all

 
// if (feedURI.schemeIs("http")) {
//        feedURI.scheme = "feed";
//        spec = feedURI.spec;
// }
// else
//        spec = "feed:" + spec;


Now feeds are automatically added to GreatNews when clicking on the Feed icon.

Hurray! :D
