the askubuntu.com site has a rss/atom feed which is available via the rss icon in the awesomebar of firefox. if you click on that icon, the page firefox wants to open is feed://http//askubuntu.com/feeds.

as you can see this is formatted wrong as it should be https://askubuntu.com/feeds

if you click on the feed icons of opera and ie they are going to the right address, so it's firefox only.

  • Are you using any extensions which may be contributing to this?

  • Even in safe-mode (3.6.12) I can reproduce it. In my vm I can't reproduce it. It might be caused by the stupid corporate proxy.
