Description jhersco 2008-06-24 10:22:51 PDT
When using any of the latest three or four nightly builds of WebKit, I have been unable to connect to any .RSS feeds. URL flashes alternately with "Go to this address" in Address bar and "Contacting www.(name of website).com appears in the status bar. Switching to Safari 3.1 does not solve the problem, as a click on any .RSS feed opens WebKit automatically.  To regain .RSS capability in Safari, I must move WebKit to the Trash.

I have seen this as well -- any time I attempt to connect to an RSS feed using WebKit (over the last few builds), the progress bar loads about 15%, then starts over in an infinite loop. It occasionally causes the browser to crash.

I am experiencing this issue as well. Just started today. Tried the newest build, same issue.

I have had the same problem with nightly builds for about four months, now. As of the 9-27-2008 release, the problem remains. I have to move WebKit to the trash for .rss feeds to work in Safari.
